We can be surprised by the impact of certain minor events on our lives. In Charlize Theron’s case, a simple argument took her to the top.
There are many ways to be discovered as a star. For some, it will be thanks to famous parents, for others, hard work from childhood, and for still others, it is a good dose of luck. The latter case is that of Charlize Theron, who recently starred in Mad Max: Fury Road and Fast X. The actress was discovered when she was 16 during an event that may seem innocuous. Indeed, it was during an argument with a banker that an agent noticed her and offered her an audition. At that moment, she had no idea that her immense career had just begun. She tells her story during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Charlize Theron in Fast X
Charlize Theron was born and raised near Johannesburg, but she already dreams of becoming a star. Not an actress no, a model! It was for this purpose that she moved to Milan at the age of 16 with 300 dollars and a check in her pocket (received from a small job in another country). By wanting to deposit this check in the bank to pay for his hotel night, he is not accepted, since he is a foreigner. The young woman begins to cry. She begs the ticket clerk without knowing that a recognized cinema manager is listening to her and judging her performance.. Then, a man approaches, hands him his card and says “if you are interested, I will audition you”. The card read “John Crosby”.
John Crosby is known and legitimate in the industry. He has already cast John Hurt (Elephant Man) but also Rene Russo (Lethal Weapon). In short, a stroke of luck in the middle of the jungle of managers on Hollywood Boulevard. Charlize Theron will call him back and will be successfully auditioned for The Corn Demons 3: Harvest of Terror, a second-rate slasher. Although the feature film does not sound like a triumphant start to his career, that hasn’t stopped him from reaching heights today. What’s more, she states in the interview thatshe remains very proud of this first film like all the others.
