Charlize Theron


16 Nov, 2003

Theron plays Aileen Wuornos, one of America’s first female serial killers, in this true-life drama, which she also produces. After a difficult and cruel childhood plagued by abuse and drug use in Michigan, Wournos becomes a prostitute by the age of thirteen. She eventually moves to Florida where she began earning a living as a highway prostitute–murdering her clients in order to get money without using sex. Co starring  Christina Ricci, Patty Jenkins and Bruce Dern. On producing:

It’s great. I love it. I love the job. I love them both. They kind of help each other out. It’s not like something new that I’m just learning or trying to do— I mean, I am learning. But I’ve always been very interested in the whole film-making process, and I’ve always been lucky enough to work with filmmakers and producers that have been very encouraging to let me hang around and be a part of that. I like it. I get so emotionally invested in that whole process that the producing part of me is just a natural thing to happen.
