Personal Quote:

I think women are way more conflicted than men, and I think we come from a society that's very comfortable with the Madonna / whore complex, you know. We're either really good hookers or really good mothers. See more »

Trivia:

After winning her Oscar, she returned to great celebrations in her native South Africa, and she even met former South African President Nelson Mandela. When he praised her for putting their country on the map and gave her a hug, Theron broke into tears (she was guest of honor at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg on March 11, 2004).
