Here is the obligatory BIO information before starting the official blogfest...


Charlize Theron was born in Benoni, South Africa, on the 7th of August, 1975. Her father Charles worked on the family's road-construction business, which mother Gerda took over after Charles' death in 1990. Apparently, Charlize's mother shot her husband Charlie in self-defense, after he attacked her in a drunken state.

Charlize started out as a professional dancer, which allowed the young 6-year-old to fantasize and be the actress that she ultimately turned out to be. Since the farm they lived on had no means of entertainment (no television or movies), Charlize had to use her passion for dancing and her imagination to entertain herself when not caring for the farm animals. After dancing in Johannesburg, she began modeling in Milan, Italy, by the time she was 16.

But modeling was not fulfilling enough for Charlize, who wanted to return to her original passion -- dance -- after only a year as a model. While modeling gave her the opportunity to travel, she decided to stay in New York after a modeling shoot, in order to study ballet at the Joffrey School in the Big Apple. Bored of modeling, Charlize wanted to do more than stand around and look pretty.

Unfortunately, Charlize suffered from a knee injury that forced her ballet career to come to an end. Jobless and broke, Charlize headed for the West Coast. In 1994, her luck and career path changed. When she threw a tantrum and made a scene at a Los Angeles bank after a teller refused to cash a check because she didn't have an account at the bank, a talent manager noticed the natural beauty.
