* SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct: [[invoked]] After being considered a bit of an "It" Girl for being perfectly fine in a string of generally forgettable films, she got this for ''Monster''. Creator/RogerEbert called her work [[http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/monster-2003 one of the greatest performances in the history of the cinema]], and admitted that having walked into the film after the opening credits, he didn't even realise it was her until he saw her name in the closing credits.

* DoingItForTheArt: [[invoked]] Says that her main motivation is the chance to work with people such as Creator/JohnFrankenheimer, Creator/RidleyScott, Creator/JasonReitman, Creator/DiabloCody, and Creator/GeorgeMiller.
* DyeingForYourArt: [[invoked]]
** She put on over 20 pounds of weight, shaved off her eyebrows and wore prostethic teeth while filming ''Film/{{Monster}}''.
** She also dyed her hair black to play title character in ''Film/AeonFlux''.
** She also shaved her head to play Furiosa in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', and did it again for re-shoots after it grew back. As a result, she had to wear a wig for ''Film/AMillionWaysToDieInTheWest''.
* FakeAmerican: [[invoked]] Has yet to play someone who's actually South African (although her character in ''Film/MightyJoeYoung'' lives in Africa, she's American).[[note]]She grew up speaking Afrikaans and didn't become fluent in English until she relocated to the USA in her teens. She points out that since she learned English in America, she's never had to lose an Afrikaner accent.[[/note]]
* FakeBrit: She puts on a passable English accent for her role as Queen Ravenna.
* FanDisservice: Beautiful as she is, she's not really known for doing ''enticing'' nude scenes...
* {{Fanservice}}: ...But for every ''Film/TheDevilsAdvocate'' or ''Film/{{Monster}}'' there's a ''Film/ReindeerGames'' or ''Film/TheCiderHouseRules'', among several other exceptions to the above.
* FunnyCharacterBoringActor: Inverted. Known for playing various dark characters, and she's found herself playing a lot of humourless Ice Queens in TheNewTens. In interviews she's very goofy, and claims that when she met Barack Obama, she accidentally invited him to a strip club. She also happily describes herself as a {{Gasshole}} on set.



* MoneyDearBoy: The Sony email hacks revealed that Chris Hemsworth was being paid $10 million to do ''Film/TheHuntsmanWintersWar'', Charlize refused to reprise her role unless she was paid the same amount. As she was a proven Box Office draw, she was granted this.
* OldShame: [[invoked]] While she doesn't regret getting the chance to work with Creator/JohnFrankenheimer, like everybody else involved in ''Film/ReindeerGames'' she doesn't think much of the final film.
