Charlize Theron

Her father died when she was 15, leaving Charlize Theron and her mother to fend for themselves, look after the family farm and her father’s construction business. “I grew up in a country where people lived with half-truths, whispers, lies and propaganda. Nobody said anything and I think a lot of that influenced me as a teenager. I think living in that environment really made me realise that you have to speak up, you have to be able to know that when this life is over, you’ve lived a certain amount of truth and to be comfortable with that.”
