South African-American actress and model Charlize Theron was born on August 7, 1975 in Benoni, Gauteng, South Africa. She is the only child of parents Charles Theron and Gerda. Growing up in her parents’ farm outside Benoni, she first attended primary school at Putfontein and later on transferred to National School of Arts in Johannesburg. She was dreaming of becoming a dancer, but unfortunately there aren’t any opportunities for it in South Africa, so she decided to go to the US to find her career. She worked in Joffrey Ballet in New York but soon stopped because of an injured knee. Flying to Los Angeles without knowing anybody, she later met talent agent John Crosby and got her first role after 8 months.
These days, Charlize is already one of the A-lister actresses in Hollywood. Though her journey to the industry was quite tough, this lovely woman proves that anything can really happen. With her stunning looks these days, we can very much verify why she’s this successful. Part of the reason why she becomes highly-regarded apart from her naturally gorgeous face is her slender, svelte figure that seems to never fade.
Few of her secrets to looking this good ‘til now are cutting out alcohol, starch, and dinner. She also eats plenty of raw fruits and vegetables. She says this kind of diet is really effective since she lost 14 pounds in a month after doing so. And her workout? Of course, it’s dancing. As a former ballerina, she says she’s lucky to have the hobby that benefits her in a lot of ways.
