Charlize Theron refused to take the easy path to Hollywood success and in the process crafted one of the most successful careers in film history. Born in South Africa, she originally moved with her mother to Milan, Italy to accept a modeling contract when she was 16. She relocated again to the United States to study dance. After an injury derailed her dancing career, she moved again to Los Angeles, and began an acting career. A small role as a lingerie-clad assassin in "2 Days in the Valley" (1996) brought her immediate notice. She was cast by Tom Hanks in "That Thing You Do!" (1997) and in the comedy "Trial and Error" (1997), before progressing quickly into high profile starring roles. Playing opposite Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino, she gained notice in Taylor Hackford's "The Devil's Advocate" (1997), as the possessed wife of Reeves' lawyer. She soon headlined her own film when she was cast as the lead in Disney's remake of "Mighty Joe Young" (1998). She continued working steadily, starring opposite Tobey Maguire in "The Cider House Rules" (1999) and Ben Affleck in the action film "Reindeer Games" (2000), but she began slotting into roles that played upon her fresh-faced beauty. After a role in the well-received action yarn "The Italian Job" (2003), she took a role that completely changed perceptions of her. As serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Patty Jenkins' "Monster" (2003), the actress undertook a transformation that left her almost unrecognizable. She earned critical praise for the role, and took home both an Oscar and a Golden Globe. She followed up with dramatic roles in "Head in the Cloud" (2004) and "North Country" (2005), picking up a second Academy Award nomination for the latter. Despite good reviews the films didn't make quite the same impression as "Monster." Similarly, her work in the effects heavy films "Aeon Flux" (2005) and "Hancock" (2008), with Will Smith, also fell short of expectations. The actress fared better with a brief foray into television with a memorable guest arc on the hit comedy "Arrested Development" (Fox, 2003-06) and appearing as actress Britt Ekland opposite Geoffrey Rush in "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers" (HBO, 2004).. She began another upward ascent with a role opposite Viggo Mortensen in the adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's post-apocalyptic drama "The Road" (2009). A fruitful partnership with screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman emerged soon after, resulting in the well-received "Young Adult" (2011). The trio would later reform for "Tully" (2018). She also joined Chris Hemsworth for the fantasy adventures "Snow White and the Huntsman" (2012) and "The Huntsman: Winter's War" (2016), playing sinister fairy tale villain Queen Ravenna. Her action bona fides were proven conclusively when she starred in George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road" (2015), where she played the road warrior Imperator Furiosa. She followed that with a showy role as special agent Lorraine Broughton in "Atomic Blonde" (2017). The actress also joined one of history's most successful film franchises, playing the villainous Cipher in "The Fate of the Furious" (2017) and "Fast & Furious 9" (2020). Never one to be pigeonholed, she continued working in comedy as well, starring with Seth MacFarlane in "A Million Ways to Die in the West" (2014) and Seth Rogen in the romantic comedy "Longshot" (2019), the latter of which was under the banner of her own production company.

Albert says: Every year, people die.

Anna says: Really?

Rannulph Junuh says: Is there somethin' you wanna tell me?

Adele Invergordon says: Well, I'm tryin' to think of how to say it, Junuh, There is a purpose to this visit... and that's to apologize. But I'm not a naturally apologetic woman, so it takes me a little longer to get my thoughts in order.

Rannulph Junuh says: Interestin' match.

Adele Invergordon says: I've always thought so.

Jill Young says: Legends live forever.

Aeon Flux says: I had a family once, I had a life. Now all I have is a mission.

Adele Invergordon says: I don't want you think I'm cryin' over us, Junuh. 'Cause I'm not. I'm cryin' over Savannah and the pain it's people are sufferin'.

Rannulph Junuh says: You're cryin' for Savannah?

Mirror Man says: It is you, my queen. Yet another kingdom falls to your glory. Is there no end to your power and beauty?

Meredith Vickers says: What's that on its head?

Elizabeth Shaw says: It's a new cell. In state of change.

Meredith Vickers says: Changing into what?

Tara says: [after she sees him staring at her] Uncle James, you're creeping me out.

Joleen says: Hey, you be nice to Uncle James. James, where do you keep the hangers?

James says: What?

Joleen says: Hangers! God, this place is such a mess. I should have brought some of my own furniture.And we're going to need another pillow for Tara, by the way.

Tara says: I'm not sleeping in the same bed as you, Mom!

Joleen says: You know, you could really start unpacking your own shit instead of sitting there and pretending to do your homework.

Tara says: I'm not pretending to do my homework, I'm pretending not to hate my life!

Joleen says: Well, you're not doing a very good job of pretending!

Tara says: Well, maybe I'm not applying myself!

Joleen says: I don't need this kind of shit from you right now, Tara!

Aileen Wuornos says: I loved her. And the thing no one ever realized about me or believed was that I could learn. I could train myself into anything. People always look down their noses at hookers. Never give you a chance cause they think you took the easy way out. When no one could imagine the will power it took to do what we do, walking the streets night after night. Taking the hits and still getting back up. But I did and they'd all miss out. Cause they had no idea what I could discipline myself too and I believed in something - and I believed in her.

Aileen Wuornos says: People always look down their noses at hookers. Never give you a chance, because they think you took the easy way out, when no one could imagine the willpower it took to do what we do. Walking the streets, night after night, taking the hits and still getting back up.

Aileen Wuornos says: "All you need is love and to believe in yourself."

Aileen Wuornos says: All you need is love and to believe in yourself.

Aileen Wuornos says: [scoffs] Nice idea. It doesn't exactly work out that way. But I guess it was better to hear a flat-out lie than to know the truth at 13.

Ravenna says: Let them break their skulls on these stone walls.

Meredith Vickers says: A king has his reign, and then he dies. It's inevitable. That is the natural order of things.

Meredith Vickers says: Let's say I'm wrong, and you do find these "Engineers" down there. You won't engage them. You won't talk to them. You'll do nothing, but report to me.

Meredith Vickers says: Let's say I'm wrong, and you do find these 'Engineers' down there. You won't engage them. You won't talk to them. You'll do nothing, but report to me.

Wife says: They're gonna catch up with us. They're gonna catch up with us and they are going to kill us.

Ravenna says: let them come

Ravenna says: Let them come.

Ravenna says: I will give this wretched world the queen it deserves.

The Queen says: Only with a nail? If she'd had a sword she'd have taken my kingdom.

Meredith Vickers says: A king has its reign...and then he dies. Its inevitable.

Meredith Vickers says: If you're going down there, you're going to die.

Aileen Wuornos says: All you need is love and to believe in yourself. Nice idea. It doesn't exactly work out that way. But I guess it was better to hear a flat-out lie than to know the truth at 13.

Sandra Freehauf says: Take me with you.

Mavis Gary says: Excuse me?

Sandra Freehauf says: Take me with you. To the Mini Apple.

Mavis Gary says: You're good here, Sandra.

Mavis Gary says: Sometimes in order to heal a few people have to get hurt.

Mavis Gary says: Mary Ellen, you were great tonight. It's so inspiring to see a single mother with so much confidence on stage. Really.

The Queen says: Beauty is my power.

The Queen says: Find me someone who doesn't fear the dark forest to hunt her down!

Meredith Vickers says: 'A king has his reign, and then he dies. It's inevitable.'

Meredith Vickers says: A king has his reign, and then he dies.

Elizabeth Shaw says: Prometheus, are you seeing this?

Meredith Vickers says: They were right..

Meredith Vickers says: If your going sown there, your going to die

Meredith Vickers says: If you're going down there, you're going to die.

The Queen says: Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?

Meredith Vickers says: Take us home!

Elizabeth Shaw says: If we don't stop it, there won't be any home to go back to!

The Queen says: I will give the world the queen it deserves.

The Queen says: I will give this wretched world the Queen it deserves.

Adele Invergordon says: I don't want you think I'm crying over us, Junuh. 'Cause I'm not. I'm crying over Savannah and the pain it's people are suffering.
