      Facts

      Charlize Theron's father, Charles, was a construction company owner of French Huguenot descent; her mother, Gerda, is of German descent and took over her husband's business after his death. Theron's first language is Afrikaans, and her second is English. "Theron" is a French surname pronounced in Afrikaans as "Tronn", although she has stated that she prefers the pronunciation "Thrown"

      She grew up as the only child on her parents' farm near Johannesburg and was sent to a boarding school at the age of 13. At the age of 15, Theron witnessed the death of her father; he was an abusive alcoholic, and her mother shot him in self defense when he attacked her. No charges were pressed.

      At the age of 16, Theron travelled to Milan, Italy on a one-year modelling contract after winning a local competition. Her contract ended while she was in New York City. She decided to remain there and attended the Joffrey Ballet, where she trained as a ballet dancer and performed in productions of both Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. A knee injury ended this career path at the age of 18. Unable to dance, she bought a ticket to Los Angeles. After eight months in the city she got her first film part, a non-speaking role in the direct-to-video film Children of the Corn III. She followed this with larger roles in widely released films, and her career sky-rocketed with box office successes like The Devil's Advocate, The Cider House Rules, and Mighty Joe Young.

      In 1999, she posed nude for the May issue of Playboy magazine.

      After appearing in a few notable films, Theron starred as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in the film Monster (2003). Receiving praise for her performance (film critic Roger Ebert called it "one of the greatest performances in the history of the cinema"), Theron won the Best Actress Oscar at the 76th Academy Awards in February 2004, as well as the SAG Award and the Golden Globe Award. She is the first South African to win an Oscar for Best Actress.

      On September 30, 2005 she received her own bronze star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In the same year, she starred in the film Ćon Flux and was given positive reviews for her lead performance in North Country.

      Theron also portrayed Rita, Michael Bluth's (Jason Bateman) love interest on the third season of FOX's critically acclaimed sitcom Arrested Development.

      Theron is the current spokeswoman for Dior perfume. She resides in Los Angeles with her long-term boyfriend, Stuart Townsend; she has said, perhaps jokingly, that she will not marry him until same-sex couples are able to have their marriages recognized. Theron is also involved in women's rights organizations

      While filming Ćon Flux in Berlin, Germany, she had surgery on a herniated cervical disc in her neck.
