Sometimes a star is so extremely successful that describing them might require all the good adjective you know and more. Such is the case of Charlize Theron who is ruling both as an actress and also as a producer. Currently, she is the first South African to win an Academy Award after winning the Best Actress award at the Oscars. The South-African born actress is doing so well professionally and has got many wondering if she is doing just as well in her private life? Well, the answer to this question has been explored below and we at least know that whether or not there is a man in her life, the star is simply unstoppable.

Biography (Age)

Theron was born the only child of her parents Gerda and Charles Theron on 7 August 1975. Hers is an Afrikaner family whose ancestors were among the Huguenot settlers of the 17th century, thus she has mixed roots including Dutch, French, and German. As a child, Theron lived in her family’s farm located in Benoni close to Johannesburg but was born in Gauteng province formerly known as Transvaal Province. The beauty was a pupil at Putfontein Primary School before joining the National School of the Arts in Johannesburg where she began early to sharpen her talent.

While her early childhood seemed normal, things took a different turn at her later age when her father, Charles became a heavily abusive alcoholic. In an outburst of rage from drunkenness, he got killed from gunshot injuries sustained after the actress’ mother shot him to defend herself and Theron from his threats and physical attack.

The incident which happened on 21 June 1991, was ruled as self-defense and her mother was acquitted of any wrongdoing. While Charlize Theron was still healing from the trials, her mother entered her into a modeling competition and in a stroke of luck, she won. Consequently, she was made to move to Milan to begin her modeling career. From that moment, she has proven that she is dedicated to her work. Whether it is altering her weight or shaving her head to get a role right, Theron has shown readiness to take on any role. Among her many acclaimed works since ascending to superstardom are The Devils Advocates, Mad Max: Fury Road, Snow White, and the Huntsman, Monsters, etc.

Theron has also made major moves away from taking up big roles. She now owns her own film production company named  Denver and Delilah Productions which has produced a good number of awe-inspiring films.

Charlize and her two children

Theron has never been married but she had had past serious relationships. One of them was with Stuart Townsend. The two began their love on the set of the 2002 film Trapped and their relationship totally made sense to fans. The two were so mature and seemed to be a perfect fit. They shared a home in Los Angeles and the ears of many itched for the announcement of their engagement. However, in 2010, they parted ways without mentioning the actual reason for their separation.

On the next go, Charlize Theron took her time and in 2013 began dating Sean Penn, fellow actor and filmmaker. The lovers were totally cool allowing the world to know about their affair. They even made their engagement in 2014 public. Just when the world thought he would be the last man, they called off their engagement in 2015 and since then, there’s been little or no speculation about who the beauty is dating. None of her relationships produced children, thus she has no biological child. Nonetheless the actress loves charity causes and for this reason, she has two adopted kids, a son, and a daughter, adopted in 2012 and 2015 respectively.


There are many things to notice about Charlize Theron when you meet her for the first time and those are her beautiful green eyes, her dyed blonde hair, her long legs and of course her incredible height. The actress stands elegant at a height of 1.77m (5 ft 9 inches) weighing 55kg (121 pounds). The actress has sustained this frame through hard work although that’s not to say she has always stayed slim all her life. As a matter of fact, she finds it extremely easy to alter her weight and in most cases does so for her movie roles.

Back in 2003, she pulled one of the most remarkable weight gains on screen. She gained over 25 pounds just to play Aileen Wuornos, a real-life serial killer in the movie Monster. To achieve the look, the actress gave up her fitness routines and ate plenty of potato chips and donuts. This practically explains how she tones down her weight whenever she wants. Also most recently, the actress had to gain a whopping 35 pounds for her role in Tully, a 2018 comedy-drama film where she played a mother of three.
