Birth Sign

Philanthropist and actress Charlize Theron was born on August 7, 1975, in Benoni, South Africa. She began ballet lessons at only six in order to foster her artistic leanings. By the age of 12, she moved to a boarding school in Johannesburg, where she would study dance. When Theron turned 15, her father’s struggle with alcoholism became intense, especially when he started being violent to her and her mother. Theron watched in dismay as her mother Gerda shot her father, but the murder was deemed as self-defense. At the age of 16, Charlize registered for the Johannesburg modeling contest and won. On realizing how talented she was, she soon traveled to Italy to contest in bigger modeling competitions. By winning the competition of New Model Today, her career took a turn and she was offered numerous opportunities in the modeling scene. Two years later, Theron decided to take a break from modeling and try dancing, which she was passionate about. She moved to New York at the age of 18 and started a career in dancing, but all did not go well when she suffered severe injuries that forced her to abandon her dream job.

Career Accomplishments

Now that she couldn’t dance, Theron made a decision to try acting instead, which saw her move to Los Angeles. Her Afrikaner accent seemed to be a barrier in seeing her land speaking roles, but she did not give up. She sat and watched hours of television, looking to strove to hide her roots and adopt perfect American inflections. A Hollywood manager known as John Crosby offered to sign her, giving her a role in the 1995 film Children of the Corn III. Larger parts followed soon after, and she took up roles in That Thing You Do! and 2 Days in the Valley. As her presence became more evident in Hollywood, she landed another role, being cast alongside Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino in the 1997 film The Devil’s Advocate. Success continued for Charlize, and she took on another drama, North County, where she portrayed an iron miner who was fighting sexual harassment. Her role in the film saw her earn a nomination at the Oscars and Golden Globes. Other films that Theron has been featured in include Hancock, Young Adult, Prometheus, A Million ways to Die in the West, and Mad Max Fury Road, which was released in 2015.
