Charlize Theron and Josh Hartnett are talented actors, and their skills were put to the test during a rousing game of charades on The Tonight Show. Announcer Steve Higgins teamed up with the A Million Ways to Die in the West star, while host Jimmy Fallon was paired with the Penny Dreadful star.

At one point, Fallon showed off his stripper moves as he attempted to act out the Tina Turner song "Private Dancer." Despite Fallon's best efforts, Hartnett had no clue what the comedian was doing.

Watch the foursome attempt to act out pop-culturally relevant phrases like "Murder, She Wrote" "Game of Thrones" and "Godzilla," and see if Hartnett redeemed himself during the showdown round.

Earlier in Tuesday's episode, Theron opened up about her 2-year-old son Jackson. "He's really sweet," the proud mama, 38, gushed. "He's really starting to put sentences together. He's at that age now where he can tell you what he likes and what he doesn't like. Before, you're just kind of guessing."

Fallon then asked if Jackson has a favorite doll, like Spider-Man, for example. He does indeed have a favorite toy—but it's not a superhero. "I think it started with this whole Frozen phenomenon. He's really into princesses now," Theron said. The audience began to laugh, prompting the Academy Award winner to joke, "And I know this is not just my son so you can all act really cool about it."

"Somebody bought him a Tinker Bell doll. He really loves his Tinker Bell doll," the Snow White and the Huntsman actress continued. "Sometimes Tinker Bell has to take a trip just to give the other dolls a chance. Tinker Bell 'goes to Africa' a lot. 'Mama, where's Tinker Bell?' 'She had to go to Africa for this week, so let's play with the other toys.' Every once in a while, Tinker Bell comes back." Jackson loves playing with his doll so much that the toy is no longer in pristine condition. "She's been through it—a couple of hair washes, some crayons, the dress doesn't exist anymore," Theron said.
