Likewise, she is known as one of the most celebrated actresses of her generation, captivating audiences with her portrayal of a range of characters. She has been recognized by various award-giving bodies, receiving several awards and nominations for her exemplary performances.
Theron received an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Critics Choice Award, and an Independent Spirit Award for her role as real-life serial killer Eileen Wuornos in the critically acclaimed movie Monster.
