And doing a film in that period, and having to really celebrate what they wore back then, how they sat and how they spoke. You know, what the etiquette was back then for a lady. All of those things are like putting on a wig and transforming yourself, which I love.
If they ever do my life story, whoever plays me needs lots of hair color and high heels.
My love is something valuable to me which I ought not to throw away without reflection.- Sigmund Freud
A novel is an impression, not an argument; and there the matter must rest.- Thomas Hardy
The fun of talk is to explore, but much of it and all that is irresponsible should not be ...- Ernest Hemingway
The blind lead the blind; we will come to sea.- Sumanth Bharadwaj
Each coil has the earthquake which created it, as every death has the life that gave birth...- Sorin Cerin
And I was victim to that very early in my career, where I would go into auditions, and I’d be wearing a big T shirt, a big baggy T shirt and loose jeans. You know, to try and show people that there was more to me than just that.
At least I know that one film-maker in my career has had the initiative to come to me and thought of me as being capable of doing interesting and complicated work, and so I have a new-found belief that other film-makers will see me in a different way, the way that Patty did.

Theron was born in Benoni, in the then-Transvaal Province of South Africa, the only child of Gerda and Charles Theron. She grew up on her parents' farm in Benoni, near Johannesburg. Theron attended Putfontein Primary School, a period she later characterised as not "fitting in". At 13, Theron was sent to boarding school and began her studies at the National School of the Arts in Johannesburg. Although Theron became fluent in English around age nineteen, her first language is Afrikaans.
Though seeing herself as a dancer, Theron at 16 won a one-year modeling contract at a local competition in Salerno and with her mother moved to Milan, Italy. After Theron spent a year modeling throughout Europe, she and her mother moved to New York City and Miami, Florida. In New York, she attended the Joffrey Ballet School, where she trained as a ballet dancer until a knee injury closed this career path at 19.
Theron received Best Actress Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for her lead performance in the drama North Country. In 2008, Theron was named the Hasty Pudding Theatricals Woman of the Year. That year she also starred with Will Smith in the superhero film Hancock, and in late 2008 she was asked to be a UN Messenger of Peace by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. In October 2009, Theron was cast to star in a sequel to the Mad Max films, titled Mad Max: Fury Road.
