CHARLIZE THERON (Joleen/Producer) has treated audiences to an incredibly wide spectrum of performances, ranging from emotional drama to action-adventure to zany comedy. In 2004, she won an Oscar® for Best Actress for her emotionally devastating turn as female serial killer Aileen Wuornos in the independent gem Monster, co-starring Christina Ricci. She also won the Independent Spirit Award, the National Broadcast Film Critics Association Award, a Golden Globe and several other awards for her performance in the film, which she also produced. In 2006, Theron was nominated again for an Academy Award® for Best Actress, as well as for a Golden Globe, SAG and Critics Choice awards for her performance as Josey Aimes in the drama North Country opposite Frances McDormand, Sissy Spacek and Woody Harrelson.

Theron began her career as a model in her native South Africa before coming to the United States as a ballerina with the Joffrey Ballet. Moviegoers were first introduced to the actress in her feature film debut, 2 Days in the Valley, with James Spader, Eric Stoltz, and Jeff Daniels. In 1997, she starred in the comedy Trial and Error, and co-starred with Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves in the Warner Brothers thriller The Devil's Advocate. Tom Hanks cast Theron in his directorial debut, That Thing You Do!

She followed that with starring roles in Woody Allen's Celebrity, in Disney's Mighty Joe Young opposite Bill Paxton, in the Oscar®-nominated The Cider House Rules based on the acclaimed novel by John Irving, and in The Astronaut's Wife opposite Johnny Depp.

In the fall of 2002, Theron starred in Miramax's Waking Up In Reno opposite Patrick Swayze, Natasha Richardson and Billy Bob Thornton; and she joined co-stars Kevin Bacon, Courtney Love, Stuart Townsend, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Dakota Fanning in the feature Trapped, directed by Luis Mandoki. In 2003, Theron illuminated screens in the exciting caper movie The Italian Job, co-starring Mark Wahlberg and Edward Norton, and she is set to reprise her role in the forthcoming sequel, The Brazilian Job.

Following Monster, Theron starred in the Sony Classics feature Head In The Clouds opposite Penelope Cruz and Stuart Townsend; then she portrayed actress Britt Ekland in HBO's The Life And Death Of Peter Sellers opposite Geoffrey Rush, for which she received Best Supporting Actress nominations from the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Emmys.
