Charlize Theron

Born: August 7, 1975

Birthplace: Benoni, South Africa

Measurements: 36B-24-36

Charlize Theron was born in Benoni, a little farming community outside Johannesburg, South Africa on August 7th, 1975. Her mother, Gerda, is German, while her late father, Charles, was French (she was named after her him).

Charlize began her modeling career in 1991, at 16, when she won a local modeling contest. She started modeling in Europe, and came to New York a year later. She didn't like being a model though, and decided to try her luck with ballet, which had been her biggest passion as a child. Unfortunately, a knee injury prevented her from dancing. Her mother bought her a one-way ticket to Los Angeles in 1994, and Charlize started visiting all of the agents on Hollywood Bulevard, but without any luck. She went to the bank to cash a check for $500 she'd gotten from her mother, and became furious when she learned that the bank could not cash her check because it was an out-state check. She made a scene, and an agent gave her his card, in exchange that she learn the language, which she did by watching soap operas on TV. Her first role was as a young mother in a park in a B-film in 1995, but it was a non-speaking role with three seconds of screen time. Her next role was as Helga in 2 Days in the Valley (1996), which landed her the role of Tina in That Thing You Do! (1996). Since then, she has starred in movies like Devil's Advocate, The (1997), Mighty Joe Young (1998), Cider House Rules, The (1999), Legend of Bagger Vance, The (2000) and Italian Job, The (2003). An important day in her life was February 29th, 2004, when she was awarded with her first Academy Award for her performance in Monster (2003).

Charlize will star in Aeon Flux, currently without a release date. The film is set 400 years in the future, when disease has wiped out the majority of the earth's population except for one walled, protected city-state, Bregna, ruled by a congress of scientists. Theron plays the title role of Aeon Flux, the top operative in the underground "Monican" rebellion, led by the Handler, played by McDormand. When Aeon is sent on a mission to kill the government's leader (Csokas), she uncovers a world of secrets, which makes her question everything she thought she knew.
