Charlize Theron says 'Monster' was defining moment in career which got her more challenging roles
The 'Bombshell' actress was recently honored with the Career Achievement Award at the Hollywood Film Awards, in California.
The 'Bombshell' actress Charlize Theron was honored with the Career Achievement Award at the Hollywood Film Awards, at Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on November 3, 2019. In her career that spans over two decades, she has acted in some of the most renowned films, such as 'Hancock', 'Prometheus', 'Mad Max: Fury Road' and others, carving a niche for herself as an established actress in Hollywood. In conversation with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), at the Hollywood Awards red carpet, Theron stated that the recent award came as a surprise to her.
Although she is a recipient of several awards (including a Golden Globe and Silver Bear For Best Actress) and undoubtedly, one of the most talented actresses Hollywood has produced to date. But, she says defining moment in her career was when she got to do 'Monster'.
Explaining how 'Monster' helped her establish her career, Theron told MEAWW, "I could breathe a little bit more. People were handing me things that were more challenging, that were outside my comfort zone. That was a really nice moment in my career."
She isn't new to producing either. Through her company Denver and Delilah Productions, Theron has produced several notable films including the recent romantic-comedy 'Long Shot.' "Now that I am producing, I get to challenge myself and I get to work with people I know will challenge me", she told MEAWW.
2003's crime-drama 'Monster' was helmed by Patty Jenkins and produced by Charlize Theron herself. Her outstanding acting in the film paved way for several accolades, including the Silver Bear for Best Actress at the Berlin International Film Festival. Besides achieving success at the box office, 'Monster' also received impressive reviews from the critics.
