In this Sunday’s PARADE, actress Charlize Theron tells Jeanne Wolf about her hard-charging life philosophy, how she translated a modeling career into one that earned her an Oscar, her latest movie role, why she’s tired of political correctness and more. Below, tag along with Theron and interviewer Jeanne Wolf, and get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into her PARADE photo shoot with photographer Robert Ascroft.
Parade’s photo shoot was just one small part of a few days in the life of Charlize Theron. Her schedule is as glamorous as you’d expect and a lot more rigorous than the surprisingly laid-back star lets on.
Right before we went to the studio, I watched her at a luncheon for the Hollywood Foreign Press at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Charlizeâ€”startlingly beautiful in a short high-fashion bright green dressâ€”joined industry biggies and a roomful of Tinseltown establishment types, celebs and suits. She went to the podium to present a donation and joked as she held up the check, which got some big laughs. Who could tell that Charlize’s huge fear (which she confided to me) is public speaking?
