Action Heroine Charlize Theron Showed Her Stuff in "Aeon Flux"
Born in Benoni, in the then-Transvaal Province of South Africa, Charlize Theron comes from a long line of Afrikaaners, and is of French, German, and Dutch descent. Growing up on a farm, Theron lost her father when her mother allegedly shot him to death in self-defense.
Theron won a modelling contract at age 16 and moved to Milan, Italy, the European fashion center. She then moved to New York City to model for a year, and then moved to Los Angeles to break into the film industry. That strategy was wildly successful, as a talent agent soon saw her and introduced her around, though she soon fired him because he was suggesting sleazy roles. Her first non-speaking role in a film was "Children of the Corn III" (1995), and Charlize's big breakthrough was a sexy supporting role in "2 Days in the Valley" (1996). That latter role was became a major part of the film's advertising campaign, and Theron was on her way.

Charlize Theron now is a top movie star. Some of her more prominent roles have been the title character in "Æon Flux," Queen Ravenna in "Snow White and the Huntsman," and Stella Bridger in "The Italian Job." That, however, only scratches the surface of Charlize Theron's stellar film career. She also has done some prominent modelling work again in recent years.
Active in a variety of causes, Charlize Theron is very outspoken. She has said that she will never get married until same-sex marriage becomes legal, and she founded The Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP) in 2007 to help with health concerns in southern Africa. Clearly, Charlize Theron is a force to be reckoned with, both within the film industry and without.
