A proposal took over the black carpet at Universal film's premiere Monday night.

"You don't want to marry me! You don't want to marry me!" Charlize Theron told a fan holding a makeshift sign with the words "Will you marry me Charlize?," written in black sharpie, at The Huntsman: Winter's War premiere in Los Angeles on Monday night.

The selfie-demanding fans (who repeatedly called Chris Hemsworth, Thor) weren't the only supporters of the actress, as longtime WME agent Ari Emanuel and friend Aisha Tyler joined Theron on the black carpet at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.

Theron seemed to be the only reason why Tyler made it out to the premiere, as she tells The Hollywood Reporter she's not the biggest fan of the occasion: "They're exhausting you have to get dressed up and wear shoes that are uncomfortable. You're starving and there's nothing in there but popcorn and you're super excited about the afterparty and you haven't eaten and then you're wasted. I'm very selective. Tonight I'm here to support Charlize specifically."

While Tyler thinks premieres can be rough, others at the event had to talk about tough moments from the film's shoot. Hemsworth tells THR, "We shot in London, it wasn't the warmest place. It was winter time."

Adds Sam Hazeldine, "During the action sequence when we were shooting outside, we were under these rain machines and we were shooting at 3 o'clock in the morning outside of London and were freezing cold. They'd start the rain machines and we'd be waiting about five minutes until they called action so by which time you were just frozen and then you had to get into the scene."

Says the film's director, Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, "When you shoot in London you have sun, and rain, sun, and rain. And with Jessica [Chastain] we're doing this scene and she's not wearing a lot of clothing and she's just standing there freezing."

Emily Blunt seemed to disagree with all of the above, though, as she remarks, "There wasn't really a tough moment. It was way too easy." 

The Huntsman: Winter's War is the prequel to Snow White and the Huntsman and both films are brought to audiences by Universal Pictures. Of the studio's notes for the prequel Nicolas-Troyan explains, "The tips were to make it more light, fun and enjoyable for the girls to go and have fun."

A star of sequels, trilogies and beyond, Hemsworth says, "I had fun on the first Thor as I did the first film for this. It's all about following the script though. If the script is advancing the character in some way, then I'm on board. And you want people to see the films and these happen to have a following." 

Also in attendance were Donna Langley, Halsey, Chastain, Nick Frost and Colleen Atwood.
