Charlize Theron: Life And Career

Charlize Theron

The actress was born on August 7, 1975, near Johannesburg in South Africa. She was a victim of domestic violence at a young age. Her father was a major alcoholic who came home drunk one day and started firing hither and thither. In order to protect her and her child, Charlize’s mother shot down her husband. Charges were not pressed on her mother as it was an act of defense.

At the age of 16, Charlize started modeling in Italy and later in the US. The actress recounts her early days, “I was broke, I was taking a class at the Joffrey Ballet, and my knees gave out. I realized I couldn’t dance anymore, and I went into a major depression. My mom came over from South Africa and said, ‘Either you figure out what to do next or you come home because you can sulk in South Africa’.” Taking her mother’s advice and delving back in search of acting roles, she started to appear in small roles.

At the age of 22, came her breakthrough role in the movie, ‘The Devil’s Advocate‘ alongside Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino. Then she acted in hundreds of films like, ‘Young Adult‘, ‘The Fate of the Furious‘ and ‘Tully‘. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2004 for her performance in ‘Monster‘, making her the first South African to ever win an Oscar.
