Charlize Theron is one of the biggest names in Hollywood and one of the most phenomenal and decorated actresses in the country. She gained a place in the film industry and later world fame with her outstanding role in the 1997 film The Devil’s Advocate. Since then her career has taken an upward trend. She has won several awards, including an Oscar, a Golden Globe Award, and the Silver Bear for Best Actress for her role in Monster, and she has consistently captured the hearts of audiences with her versatility ranging from romantic to action-packed roles.
Although we are aware of her enormous success in Hollywood, as she has been on our screens for over two decades, we may not really know much about her private life, including her relationship; past and present. So let’s take a look at some of the men who could be considered lucky because they are with the blonde bombshell and the Hollywood phenomenon.
Charlize Theron Bio
Charlize Theron is a prominent American actress. In her career spanning over two decades, she has appeared in over 50 films and television shows. Born as the daughter of Gerda (née Maritz) and Charles Theron on August 7, 1975, in Benoni, South Africa, she grew up during apartheid in South Africa and worked her way to greatness in the tinsel town where she is known as one of the most beautiful stars. Her family are Africans with roots in Dutch, French, and German, so she has her first language as Afrikaans. A dedicated and hard-working actress, she developed an American accent when she moved to the USA and now speaks fluent English. Theron was naturalized as an American citizen in 2007, although she still retains her South African citizenship.
She had a traumatic childhood where she witnessed her mother shoot her father in June 1991. Before his death, he was exposed to alcohol and abused his wife and daughter. As a result, Charlie’s mother was not charged with murder after the incident, as the law said it was self-defense. Despite the ugly circumstances surrounding her early years, she found her way through this situation and proved to be a true master at the top.
Charlize Theron worked on the catwalks in Milan, Italy at the age of 16, studied ballet at the Joffrey School in New York with a scholarship at 18, but was unable to continue due to knee injuries, which in hindsight proved to be a blessing as it introduced her to the world of representation.
She made her acting debut in an unappreciated role as an adherent of a cult in the horror film Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest (1995). Since then, she has established her form as a talented and skilled actress with a wide variety of roles in films, including a schizophrenic woman in The Devil’s Advocate (1997) who was her ticket to fame, The Cider’s House Rules (1999), serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster (2003), for which she won several awards, including the Academy Award for Best Actress, the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Feature Film – Drama and the Screen Actors Guild Award for outstanding achievement by a female lead actress.
Her other works include the biopic The Life and Death of Peter Sellers (2004), Æon Flux (2005), in which she played the rebel assassin of the same name, Hannock (2008), Young Adult (2011), Snowman and the Huntsman (2012), the rebel soldier Emperor Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), The Fate of the Furious (2017), Atomic Blonde (2017), Tully (2018), Gringo (2018). Throughout her career, Theron has played with such well-known stars as Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Al Pacino, Johnny Depp, and Michelle Rodriguez.
Besides her work on the big screen, Theron is also successful as a producer behind the screen. In the late 2000s, she ventured into film production with her own company Denver and Delilah Productions, and has produced numerous works, some of which can be seen in her leading roles. These include her documentary East of Havana (2007), The Burning Plain (2008), Dark Places (2015), and Atomic Blonde (2017).
Charlize Theron Net Worth
The South African actress Belle is undoubtedly a very successful actress if one judges her numerous works and the awards she has received, i.e. if one leaves these two criteria for judging success in the entertainment arena because she has a dose of it. If one lets it depend on how much one brings home after each work and the net assets that have accumulated, then Charlize Theron certainly has no shortage in this respect either. However, there is more to success in any area of human endeavor than meets the eye, such as dedication, willpower, and concentration, which she does not lack.
From her time as a model to her time as a dancer to her entry into tinsel town, where she established herself as an A-actor and built an up-and-coming production career, she has accumulated a reasonable amount of net worth. She also starred in critically and commercially successful films such as Hancock and The Fate of the Furious, which brought in more than $624 million and $1 billion at box offices worldwide.
With this previous film, her net worth was estimated at 110 to 130 million dollars. She also owns several apartments and is a smart investor. Charlize Theron also cares about humanity and donates a large part of her assets to philanthropic courses.
Who is Charlize Theron Dating? Her Partner, Boyfriend
Charlize Theron has consistently delivered outstanding performances throughout her career, for which she has won thousands of hearts. While one could say this with confidence about her career, one could not be so sure about her relationships. Let us turn over a few pages of her private life to get a glimpse. And here we go from Craig Bierko in the 1990s to the recent past.
When the blonde beauty was just starting her Hollywood career, she went out with actor and singer Craig Bierko from 1995 to 1997.
Stephan Jenkins is an American musician who is popularly known as the frontman and guitarist of Third Eye Blind. The duo met in 1998 and met from then on until they went their separate ways in 2001. After the split, some of the songs on the band’s third album, Out of the Vein, seem to explore the emotions Jenkins experienced as a result of the split, most notably the song Never Let You Go, which is said to have been inspired by the incident.
The relationship of Mad Max: Fury Road actress to her imprisoned co-star is one of her longest to date (almost a decade old). She met the Irish actor Stuart Townsend on the set of the 2000 film where they played a screen couple. It seemed, however, that the chemistry reached beyond the screen into her real life. From then on, they were together and even lived as man and wife in Los Angeles and Ireland, although no wedding took place until, to the dismay of their fans, they decided to end the affair in 2010.
Along her dating profile, Charlize Theron took a break to begin a new aspect of life – motherhood – with the adoption of two lovely children. In March 2012 she adopted her first child, a son named Jackson. Three years later, she went the adoption route again when she brought a girl home in July 2015 in August. After becoming a mother, she developed a new perspective on dating and was apparently looking for a partner who would not only stand by her side but also take care of her children as a father figure, if not as a father.
Their most recent relationship was also a high-profile one. After being friends for many years with the ex-husband of pop singer Madonna, American actor Sean Penn, the duo started a relationship in December 2013. They announced their engagement a year later, but only months after she revealed to Esquire UK that it is nice to be single, but getting engaged is even nicer. Unfortunately, they were unable to take their relationship to the next level, as they ended it in June 2015 after nearly two years of keeping the flame burning, if not burning.
Apart from the many men she had dedicated some parts of her life to, she also had some with whom she supposedly went out or had an affair. These include her co-star Will Smith in 2008, Jeremy Renner and Keanu Reeves, both in 2010, Ryan Reynolds, with whom she allegedly dated for a few months in 2011, Alexander Skarsgård in 2012, and after her separation from Penn, she was associated with actor Jake Gyllenhaal in 2015 and most recently Halle Berry’s ex, former Versace model Gabriel Aubry, in 2017.
