Biography


With critics' praise and numerous film awards she has obtained throughout her acting career, Charlize Theron undoubtedly has established herself as one of Hollywood's prominent stars of her generation. Consistently displayed stunning performances in every role she takes, this striking actress has indeed proven that she is much more than just a pretty face and therefore really deserves all the accolades addressed to her. Although the road to achieve world's recognition was quite rough to undergo, the remarkable natural talent she possesses definitely is the strongest point which enables her to eventually embrace what every aspiring thespian craves for: success, popularity, and respect.

A perfect blend of French Huguenot and German origin, Charlize was raised at her parents' farm in Benoni, a town near Johannesburg, South Africa from the day she was born on August 7, 1975. As this only child of Charles and Gerda Theron began to show a fascination with dancing, particularly ballet, she then was encouraged by her mother to take ballet lessons at the age of 6. Apparently, dancing was not her only interest for the little girl enthusiastically spent her spare time to watch American movies through the videos she obtained from a video store. "And this little video store opened in town with, like, 20 videos," she recalled. "I saw everything about 50 times." Meanwhile, her study of ballet brought her to Johannesburg where she entered a boarding school specialized in performing arts at her early teens, polishing her dancing skills in classical ballet, flamenco, and contemporary dance while also attending drama classes.
