THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE
CHARLIZE THERON (Adele Invergordon) has, in only four years, emerged as one of the film industry's most sought-after leading ladies. In addition to "The Legend of Bagger Vance," she stars in two more films due out this fall: the true-life drama "Men of Honor," opposite Robert De Niro and Cuba Gooding, Jr.; and "The Yards," with Mark Wahlberg and Joaquin Phoenix.
Last year, Theron co-starred with Michael Caine and Tobey Maguire in Lasse Hallstrom's Oscar-nominated drama "The Cider House Rules," based on John Irving's best-selling novel. She also starred opposite Johnny Depp in the thriller "The Astronaut's Wife." More recently, she starred opposite Ben Affieck in John Frankenheimer's action thriller "Reindeer Games."
A native of South Africa, Theron began her career as a model, working extensively in such fashion capitals as Milan and Paris before moving to the United States. In 1996, she made her feature film debut in the crime drama "2 Days in the Valley," joining an ensemble cast that also included James Spader, Eric Stoltz and Jeff Daniels. Theron received critical raves for her standout performance as Helga, Spader's murderously seductive partner.
That same year, Tom Banks cast her as Tina, Tom Everett Scott's hometown girlfriend, in his directorial debut feature "That Thing You Do!." Theron went on to star in Jonathan Lynn's "Trial and Error," with Michael Richards and Jeff Daniels, and then co-starred with Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves in the thriller "The Devil's Advocate." In 1998, she joined an all-star ensemble cast in Woody Allen's "Celebrity," and also starred in the family film "Mighty Joe Young," opposite Bill Paxton.
Theron will reunite with Woody Allen for his as-yet-untitled next film project. Her upcoming films also include "Wakin' Up in Reno," with Billy Bob Thomton and Patrick Swayze; and "Sweet November," opposite Keanu Reeves.
