** Ditto with ''Film/AtomicBlonde''. She did her own stunts and kept going while having horrible pains after breaking two teeth while filming a fight scene.

Added DiffLines:

* ActingInTheDark: She confessed that at some points in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', she had no idea what she was actually filming.


Added DiffLines:

* CareerResurrection: A slower build than some, but appearing prominently in ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheHuntsman'' and ''{{Film/Prometheus}}'' in the same year helped establish a reputation as one of Hollywood's {{Action Girl}}s in TheNewTens. With ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', she won the critical acclaim that brought it about. Notably she had been trying to develop ''Film/AtomicBlonde'' for years, and ''Mad Max'''s success helped guide it. A spin-off was even developed about Furiosa, rather than just having her appear in the sequel.


Added DiffLines:

* DoingItForTheArt:
** [[invoked]] She 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.
** Despite injuring her neck while filming ''Film/AeonFlux'', she still continued to do her own stunts for the rest of the production.
* 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 the 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''.
** More recently, she put on 35 pounds for her role in the upcoming ''Tully''.
* FakeAmerican: [[invoked]] She 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.


Added DiffLines:

* FunnyCharacterBoringActor: Inverted. Known for playing various dark characters, and she's found herself playing a lot of humorless 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.


Added DiffLines:

* MoneyDearBoy: The Sony email hacks revealed that Creator/ChrisHemsworth 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.


Added DiffLines:

* PlayingAgainstType: Her comedic role in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' as childish CloudCuckoolander Rita Leeds [[spoiler: who turns out to be mentally retarded,]] a marked stark contrast to her action or dramatic fare.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** She was offered a part in ''{{Film/Showgirls}}'' but turned it down, not wanting to appear nude. She changed her mind by the time ''Film/TheDevilsAdvocate'' came along.
** She was meant to play Elizabeth Shaw in ''Prometheus'' but a scheduling conflict led her to drop out. When her schedule freed up, Noomi Rapace had been cast as Elizabeth - so Charlize played Meredith Vickers instead.
** She dropped out of ''J. Edgar'' to star in ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheHuntsman''.

* ActionGirl: As Imperator Furiosa in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', a very memorable example which quickly catapulted her to action heroine stardom. Also the title character in ''Film/AeonFlux'' and Lorraine Broughton in ''Film/AtomicBlonde''.
