Charlize Theron is an Academy Award-winning actress from South Africa. She was born on 7 August 1975. She has been in many high profile films such as "Aeon Flux" (actually "Æon Flux") and "Monster," about a female serial killer. She reportedly was discovered by a talent agent after she got in a screaming match with a bank teller who wouldn't cash her check.

My dad was a big guy, tall, skinny legs, big belly. [He] could be very serious but loved to laugh as well, and enjoyed life. He also had a disease. He was an alcoholic.
Theron says her father never physically abused her, but concedes "he was a verbal abuser."

On the night of June 21, 1991, Theron's father and his brother were returning home after a bout of drinking. An aunt called to warn of his condition. "Nature gives you instinct. And I knew something bad was going to happen," Theron said.

Unfortunately, her father had a gun. When he arrived home, her father began shooting, first at the locked gate to the home, then through the kitchen door, according to her mother's later testimony. He began banging angrily on the door of Charlize's bedroom, saying, according to the testimony, "Tonight I'm going to kill you both with the shotgun."

The terrible thing is that everybody in South Africa has a gun … You know, but that's just the lifestyle there. And those things are handy; terrible things happen. You shouldn't have those things around because when people get irrational and emotional and drunk, terrible things can happen.

After his threat, Theron's father fired his gun again — into her room. Her mother grabbed her own handgun and shot the two men, killing her husband and wounding his brother.

According to Theron's sworn statement to police, she asked her mom: "What happened?" The answer: "Charlize, I shot them … I shot them."

Theron won a modelling contract at age 16 and moved to Milan, Italy, the European fashion center. She then moved to New York City to model for a year, and then moved to Los Angeles to break into the film industry.

That strategy was wildly successful, as a talent agent soon saw her and introduced her around, though she soon fired him because he was suggesting sleazy roles.

Charlize's first non-speaking role in a film was "Children of the Corn III" (1995), and Charlize's big breakthrough was a sexy supporting role in "2 Days in the Valley" (1996). That latter role was became a major part of the film's advertising campaign, and Theron was on her way.

I live a very simple life. I don't have to make these giant movies. I don't have a yacht or a private plane. As long as I can maintain this life, which is pretty low-maintenance and simple, then all of a sudden you don't have to worry about all that stuff. It's such a blessed place to be in. I don't have to take a job to pay a mortgage on a house that I can't afford. My life comes first, then my job. I'm incredibly lucky to be in a position where I don't have to work all the time to live.

I've gone back several times. The only thing that really stuck with me the first time I went back was walking through the house that I grew up in, and everything seemed so small. It was such a bizarre feeling. I was like, "My mother made me sleep in a closet."

Charlize Theron leather celebrityleatherfashions.blogspot.com

I don't know how to say this without sounding strange. But I feel like having this tragedy [her mother killed her father] at such a young age has given me a leg up from other people. Because, man, from 16, I knew the value of life and I knew how quickly it could be taken away. And from that moment on, I made a choice to either swim or to drown, you know?

As you get older, you get wrinkles and your boobs sag. But you get wisdom, too. So it's not all bad!

Charlize Theron leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

I actually have seven children no one knows about--in a cave. They can see Russia from their house, too.

Along with her film success, Charlize Theron remains a top model.

You know, people drank. Some people drank more, but it was never considered that this might be a problem. It was just the way it was then.

Charlize Theron leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

I don't believe in charmed lives. I think that tragedy is part of the lesson you learn to lift yourself up, to pick yourself up and to move on.

Charlize Theron leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

People just aren't willing to see conflict, or ugliness or the more flawed side of life through a female character's eyes. I mean, can you imagine a woman playing Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver? When Robert De Niro does it it's fine, [but] people are very uncomfortable about seeing that through a woman's eyes. We aren't allowed complexity.

Charlize Theron leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

What kind of stories can you tell with glamor? There are very few stories of conflict you can tell, right? I look for good stories; I'm not driven by anything other than good filmmakers and good stories. And then my job as an actor is to service those stories as well as I possibly can. The physical is the last thing that drives me.

I've always said that I worry about being with a man who doesn't flirt.

Looks alone won't get you that far. It may get you in the door, but there's always somebody younger, somebody prettier. You have to rely on something else.

I'm 50-50 on glamour stuff. I'd rather put on a pair of jeans and get on my Harley and act like a guy.
Charlize Theron leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

I've always been very proud to be a South African and I've always been very honest to people about that. And whatever I can do in my power, I promise you, I will do. I don't think it's too much pressure. I think it's our duty as citizens of this country. You don't have to win an Oscar to do something good for your country. We all can do that. If I can be an encouragement for that I'll be glad to be that.

Charlize Theron leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


I'm happy for people who want to get married, but it's not my thing. I'm extremely happy in my relationship and I would love to have kids.

Charlize Theron leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

At first I found it really hard using three different English accents: South African, faking the American, faking the accent required by the job. I decided to make it easier for myself and just do one. I haven't lost my culture, just my accent.
