Charlize Theron was the first South African to win an Academy Award in a major acting category for her portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster.

She had a difficult childhood growing up near Johannesburg – in 1991 her mother shot and killed her alcoholic and violent father in self-defence after he threatened them both.

As a result she’s always been a vocal supporter of women’s rights organisations.
