Charlize Theron Biography (5280 words)
Theron would begin ballet lessons at the age of 6, and always be a keen entertainer, ever encouraged by her mother.
Charlize, as his initially sexy and vibrant wife, is at first happy to enter this world of wealth, but soon finds herself neglected and gradually slips into paranoia and then full-blown suicidal mania.
Theron grabbed the chance and, putting on over 30 pounds, made herself next-to-unrecognisable as the abused prostitute who, at last finding love in a lesbian relationship (with Christina Ricci) begins to kill her "johns" on the Florida Interstate in order to fund a better life together.
