Charlize Theron

Bails on Her Pinkberry Tab

... But Returns with $96 Tip

EXCLUSIVE

Charlize Theron Pinkberryupdate_graphic_red_bar 3:15 PM PT -- We just uncovered the most crucial part of this story ... Charlize's fro-yo order! Here it is: chocolate hazelnut with chocolate shavings. Seems a little redundant, especially for $100, but whatever.

Charlize Theron
 had a Pinkberry worker thinking she got screwed -- the Oscar winner promised to come back to pay her bill, and even though it seemed touch and go for a while ... Charlize eventually came through with a HUGE tip. 

Here's what went down -- an employee at Pinkberry in Hollywood says Charlize came in Tuesday afternoon, but when it came time to pay her $3.75 tab  ... she plead poverty, saying she didn't have money on her.

The employee, Keila, says Charlize promised to come back, but more than an hour passed before Charlize returned (with Sean Penn, no less).

Watch the video ... Charlize plays it cool on the way out, but right after that Keila showed us why it was worth the wait -- CT left a Benjamin for the $3.75 bill!

Charlize ... definitely not a monster.

Having worked at a celebrity hangout before, I was amazed at how many of them never seemed to have any cash on them.

Happens all the time with celebrities running in for a coffee or ice cream.... Not a big deal.... Can only imagaine how TMZ must be disappointed that she not only returned to pay the bill; left a $100 & that Sean Penn was driving her as there's nothing negative to bash her about today.

Why didn't she pay with a credit card if she had no cash?

The chick probably gets fired now though she could be a role model to the fruity guy at Family Dollar........

I'm surprised she's not wearing a stupid visor like 'V for sale Stankgina' does. It's the only way to maintain your dignity in the crush of paparazzi.

Why are you going to go somewhere and try to buy something when you don't have any money on you? I don't care if I was freakin Madonna, I would never just expect a business to give me free stuff just because.

Nice...did she really think she would stiff them for 3.75? Not in this day and time with the internet.

Charlize has always conducted herself well. Her actions here are no surprise. She made somebody very happy today.
