This year, the famous fashion model and actress from South Africa, Charlize Theron, turned, scary to think, forty-six years old! Today I propose to remember the best films with the participation of this actress.

Well, you can always write your choice in the comments below..

"Devil's Advocate"

The 1997 mystical film "The Devil's Advocate" actually drew the attention of a wide range of viewers to a beautiful blonde from South Africa (although Charlize is a brunette by nature ;)). Actually, Keanu Reeves, Al Pacino and Charlize Theron actually played as needed. The film turned out great!

The 57,000,000 budget grossed over $152,000,000 at the worldwide box office.

"Mighty Joe Young"

"Mighty Joe Young" is a reimagining of the story of the famous King Kong (although the powerful monkey was named differently this time ;)). The film was released by Walt Disney Studios in 1998. It is clear that with a children's audience in mind, we will not see the "adult spectacle" that Peter Jackson showed us with his "King Kong"

Although the film failed at the American box office, it nevertheless received a couple of Oscar nominations, although in the end these golden statuettes passed by “Joe Young”. Well, Charlize Theron played the main role - the character of Jill Young.

"Sweet November"

As for me, Charlize Theron is best played in melodramas or some historical films. In fact, in 2001, the melodrama “Sweet November” was released, in which the popular actor Keanu Reeves was a partner on the set.

But the viewer voted with money and showed that this film story was not interesting to them. As a result, the budget of $40,000,000 grossed just over $65,000,000 at the global box office, plus two Golden Raspberry nominations, one that could have gone to Charlize - “For Worst Actress.”


The 2003 film “Monster” is not some mediocre “horror” film, but real events about a certain American maniac. For this role, Charlize had to gain a few extra pounds, and the make-up artists worked hard to noticeably “spoil the appearance” of the beautiful actress. But all this work was not in vain and Charlize Theron received her first Oscar, and critics highly praised both the film itself and the leading actress...

"Eon Flux"

"Eon Flux" is a spectacular, interesting and stylish fantasy action film based on the animated series of the same name. The film itself was shot in 2005 by studios in four countries - Italy, USA, Brazil and Germany.

Unfortunately, Aeon Flux was a box office failure, grossing just over $52,000,000 on a budget of $62,000,000. So the sequel, as planned, was never filmed. It's a pity!


Hancock is a 2008 comedy superhero film starring Will Smith. Well, of course, Charlize Theron got the leading female role. The film, to be honest, is quite successful, especially since it had a budget of 150,000,000 and collected more than $624,000,000. There was news that Hancock 2 was already being filmed, but there is no clearer information yet. We wait!

"A Million Ways to Lose Your Head"

Do you love Westerns as much as I do? The 2014 film A Million Ways to Lose Your Head is a Western, albeit a comedy. This comedy has a whole bunch of jokes, so to speak, “Below the Belt,” so it is not at all surprising that American film critics nominated the film for four Golden Raspberry nominations, one of which was intended for Charlize Theron, who played the main role in this film...

So if you are a fan of Scary Movie type comedies, then you will love this cowboy comedy too!

"Mad Max: Fury Road"

Mad Max: Fury Road is a worthy continuation (I would say excellent) of George Miller's original trilogy about the world after the Great War. Tom Hardy got the main role instead of the aged Mel Gibson, and Charlize Theron got the role of the warrior Furiosa.

The film received six Oscars in ten nominations, so it is not surprising that we were promised a continuation of this story. Look forward to!

"Atomic Blonde"

Films about John Wick (starring Keanu Reeves - whom we have already mentioned twice in this article today ;)) are, of course, good and loved by the audience. But the 2017 film "Atomic Blonde" (original title - Atomic Blonde) is essentially the same John Wick, only with Charlize Theron in the title role ;). The $30,000,000 spent on production collected more than $100,000,000 at the worldwide box office, so it is not surprising that we will see a continuation of this story. Really, when?

"Fast and Furious 8"/"Fast and Furious 9"

What can I say? The Fast and the Furious movie cycle quietly turned twenty years old this year - how quickly time flies!

Well, Charlize Theron played the role of the villain Cypher in the eighth and ninth parts.

What's your favorite movie with Charlize Theron?
