Charlize Theron is beautiful, talented and successful… and it’s the hardships she faced as an adolescent that undoubtedly shaped her into the strong and powerful woman the public has come to know.
Charlize grew up on her parents’ farm in South Africa. Her father, Charles, was an alcoholic whose unruly behavior frequently caused chaos in her home.
It wasn’t until Charlize was in her late twenties that she began opening up about the fact her mother killed her father out of self-defense.
On 21 June 1991, 15-year-old Charlize and her mother, Gerda, endured a terrifying night that ended in the death of her father — but heroically saving her and Charlize’s lives in the process.
In a brand new interview with NPR, the 44-year-old actor has shared her story in the effort to support others who may have experienced family and domestic violence.
This is such a harrowing story.
