i friends! Today we are going to talk about my favorite movie star: Charlize Theron. In my opinion she’s the prettiest and actress in the world. Well I think that I’m not the only one who thinks so because she’s just been elected as the “woman alive” by the readers of “Esquire” magazine. I must admit that I fully agree with it. Charlize was born in Benoni, South Africa in August on August the 7th 1975. Therefore she’s 32 years old. Charlitze grew up as the only children on her parent’s farm near Johannesburg.When she was 15 she had a harrowing experience. Charlize witnessed how her mother killed her father (an abusive alcoholic) in an act of self-defense. Soon after that incident and after winning a local model contest Charlize traveled to Milan on a one-year modeling contract. After her contract expired she tried to become a ballet dancer and took classes in the Joffrey Ballet School of New York but a knee injury cut her career short even before having started.
After that, Charlize moved to Los Angeles where she got her first role in the direct-to-video film “Children of the Com III”. Eventually her career skyrocketed in the late 1990,s with successes like “The Devil’s Advocate”, “The Cider House Rules”, and “Mighty Joe Young”. Her big break came in 2003 when she starred as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in the film “Monster”, one of the greatest performances in the history. For her role in the movie she was awarded an Oscar in February 2004 as well as the Golden Globe Award becoming the first South-african actress ever to win an Oscar for best actress. In 2005 she received her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. After winning the Oscar she starred in “North Country” (for which she earned a new nomination for an Oscar) and “Aeon Flux” (where she injured her neck on the set during a stunt). Her latest movie “In the Valley of Ellah” will have its first showing very soon and she’s been elected to co-star in the 2008 movie "Hancock" with Will Smith, a movie featuring Theron and Smith, a couple who have an affair. Nowadays Charlize is ranked seventh on the list of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood.
Charlize is not only a successful actress. She’s has also worked as a model. In 2004 she signed a contract with John Galiano and replaced Estonian Model Tiiu Kuik in the J’ADORE ads by Christian Dior. She’s the current spokeswoman for Dior fragrances and has also advertised Raymond Weil watches. Talking about her private life, Charlize dated Stephan Jenkins (singer of Third Eye Blind) for three years but they broke up after Jenkins refused to accept her marriage proposal. I think this guy is not very clever. Where is he going to find someone better than Charlize? After that, Charlize started dating Stuart Townsend with whom she’s currently living in Los Angeles. Anyway, Charlize has said that they will not marry until same couples are able to have their marriages recognized. Charlize Theron is also involved in women’s rights organizations and she’s an active supporter of animal rights and as other celebrities (such as Pamela Anderson and Fernanda Tavares) Charlize is an active member of PETA. She recently appeared in an advert for their anti-fur campaign.
