Watch: Charlize Theron in deleted 'Young Adult' scene

Charlize Theron's portrayal of young adult author Mavis Gary is a lesson in mean - the character, a former prom queen, is about as rude as one can get.

Although this scene above didn't make it into the film, it nonetheless displays the character's callousness, as well as screenwriter Diablo Cody's biting sense of humor.

In the film, Mavis returns home to find her high school sweetheart Buddy Slade married with a kid, but neither of those facts stop Mavis from pursuing him.

In the deleted scene above, you'll find her ranting about the audacity of Buddy's wife Beth - a.k.a. "the wife" - to send her a birth announcement, considering that Mavis only "met her once, like a hundred years ago."

Directed by Jason Reitman, who also teamed up with Cody for 2007's "Juno," "Young Adult" arrives on DVD and Blu-ray March 13.

    They should have left this scene in the movie–which was brilliant, by the way. Phenomenal acting, directing & writing.

    You are crazy. Loved Young Adult. Not your typical fare, but well done.

    mlkrik13, I'm not sure all films are meant to be entertaining. It's categorized under "Entertainment" just as a means to place it on an identifiable shelf. Young Adult is a devastating film about alcoholism, narcissism, and parental negligence. For instance, I don't know if I would categorize The Thin Red Line or Schindler's List as "bad" because they happen to lack the typical elements of what we consider "entertaining."

    But hey, I respect your opinion.

    This scene is just as bad as the rest of the movie was. Not entertaining.
