F E R T I L I T Y R O A D C E L E B R I T Y S P O T L I G H T Charlize’s diveristy as an actress is evident in roles such as Snow White’s stepmother, Queen Ravenna in Snow White & the Huntsman, as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster, and as Meredith Vickers in Ridley Scott’s science fiction film Prometheus. “ Living in a country like South Africa where it was evident to me that violence against women and children was something that wasn’t going to go away, and as a matter of fact has just gotten worse ” – Charlize on her campaigns to end violence against women and girls around the world Move to America After a period modelling across Europe, Charlize moved to New York aged 18 to focus on dancer with the Joffrey Ballet School. However a knee injury shattered her dreams of becoming a professional dancer. She later told IndieLondon “All of a sudden I could no longer do the things that had been open to me for most of my life. I had been a flamenco dancer, too, so had an appreciation for all kinds of dancing. There is still a sorrow inside me about what happened and dancing remains a great love. I used to go to the New York City ballet by myself and cry. I know there is no possible way I can dance again at that level”. Once again, Charlize had to re-evaluate life and she later said of this time “I spent a winter in New York in a friend’s windowless basement apartment. I was broke, I was taking class at the Joffrey Ballet, and my knees gave out. I realized I couldn’t dance anymore, and I went into a major depression. My mom came over from South Africa and said ‘Either you figure out what to do next or you come home, because you can sulk in South Africa’. Following much soul-searching and the love and support of her mother, Charlize picked herself up again and moved to Los Angeles, where she decided to refocus her energies on becoming an actress. Cash-strapped Charlize then had a second lucky break when she was spotted by talent manager John Crosby following a run-in with a banker who refused to cash a cheque from her mother. Hollywood Success Charlize’s career as an actress quickly snowballed and she went from a non-speaking part in the film Children of the Corn III (1995) to leading roles in box-office hits like The Devil’s Advocate (1997) and The Cider House Rules (1999). Charlize then won critical acclaim for her gritty portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornos in the film Monster (2003), for which she won the 2004 Academy Award for Best Actress, as well as a Golden Globe Award. Her Oscar win made her one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood and webzine AskMen named her the number one most desirable women of 2003. Charlize received further critical acclaim for her lead role in North Country (2005), for which she received Best Actress Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations and she went on to star in numerous films including Ridley Scott’s science fiction film Prometheus (2012) and Snow White & the Huntsman (2012). Charlize is also set to take the lead role in the forthcoming film adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel Dark Places. Activism and social conscience Charlize has always had a strong social conscience and sense of compassion which stem from her own life experiences. She began working with a South African rape crisis centre in 1999 and went on to found the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project which promotes HIV/Aids education for children and families in South Africa. In 2008, Charlize became the United Nation’s 10th peace envoy, following in the footsteps of US actors like George Clooney and Michael Douglas, to promote humanitarian work worldwide. She now campaigns to end violence against women and girls around the world saying of her work “This is something that has been very dear to me, and disturbing to me for a long time, being born and raised in a country like South Africa, living in a country where it was evident to me that violence against women and children was something that wasn’t going to go away, and as a matter of fact has just gotten worse”. » 14 | WWW.FERTILITYROAD.COM | APRIL - MAY 2013
