THE CIDER HOUSE RULES
CHARLIZE THERON (Candy) has had a busy year. In addition to "The Cider House Rules," Theron filmed the adventure "Mighty Joe Young," opposite Bill Paxton, "The Astronaut's Wife," also starring Johnny Depp and the drama "The Yards," with Mark Whalberg, Joaquin Phoenix, James Caan and Faye
Dunaway. She recently won critical and audience attention for her licentious performance in Woody Allen's ensemble farce "Celebrity."
Audiences first experienced Theron's seductive charm in her feature film debut "2 Days in the Valley." Starring with James Spader, Eric Stoltz and Jeff Daniels, the film spun a bizarre story about the lives of ten people in the San Fernando Valley who cross paths over 48 hours. Theron played the cold blooded Helga, Spader's partner and love interest who can't get enough of the danger that surrounds her. Even among a strong ensemble cast, Theron gave a standout performance. She then went on to star in Jonathan Lynn's "Trial and Error," with Michael Richards and Jeff Daniels. That same year, she co-starred opposite Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves in "Devil's Advocate."
Born in South Africa, Theron pursued a career in modeling and then dance, training with the renowned Joffrey Ballet School. A knee injury forced Theron to consider a new vocation, which took her to Los Angeles where she hoped to become an actress. Her breakout performance in "2 Days in the Valley" led to her role in Tom Hanks' directorial debut, "That Thing You Do." The film chronicled the rise of a small town rock band, The Wonders, and the song that brought them fame. Theron played Tina, the hometown girlfriend of the lead singer who is less than impressed by the band's newfound success.
