Charlize Theron, an amazing actress and producer did not achieve all the success she had now in just overnight. In fact, she didn’t even have the easiest childhood. She suffered from physical abuse and struggled with her health. Her father Charles was alcoholic and abusive. She would describe her father as a “very sick man” and living with him was a “pretty hopeless situation”. When she was 15, her father shot through the door and in self-defense her mother Gerda ended the threat.
The actress had more struggles than we ever think. Charlize suffered from jaundice when she was a child causing her not to have teeth until she was 11. At 16, she won a modeling contest and went to Milan to pursue this career. It became her means to pay for her real dream which is dancing. She really loved dancing more than anything. She wanted to be a ballerina. Unfortunately, her knees gave out and the thought that she couldn’t dance anymore devastated her. She went into a major depression but her mother encouraged her not to give up and let her tried acting since she also liked it.
In 1994, she was discovered by an agent while she was making a loud scene. She was 18 then with a $400 and a tattered suitcase. Her bank refused to cash her last check from a modeling job so she began yelling and creating a scene. Little did she know that she was already auditioning for a guy who eventually became her manager. The guy caught her attention and gave his card on the way out and the rest is history.
Charlize was able to showcase her acting ability and versatility which led her to substantial roles. She first starred in “The Devil’s Advocate” (1997) followed by “Mighty Joe Young” (1998), “Celebrity” (1998), “The Cider House Rules” (1999) and “The Italian Job” (2003).

She gained 30 pounds for the role which made her almost unrecognizable. In 2005, she earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
