Some individuals give off good vibes. Charlize Theron is a few individuals. Based on a Harper’s Bazaar cover story, the South African actor and producer’s 25 years in Hollywood haven’t left her jaded or friendless. As a substitute, the individuals in her nook sing her praises, and, in return, she books Michael Bolton to carry out at their shock Vegas-themed birthday events, is simple to work with, and comforts them throughout exhausting occasions. “She’s not just a great actress but a great leader,” says Uma Thurman, who’s starring alongside her in The Previous Guard 2, on Theron’s producing profession. “I think she’s gone further and taken far more control in that arena than I ever did,” Thurman says. “So all I can do is say ‘hats off.’” Seth Rogen, who performed the Atomic Blonde actor’s love curiosity within the (underrated) rom-com Lengthy Shot, describes her as a great collaborator and a great time. “She’s not one of those actors who you think, Oh, they seem this way, and they’re this way. She is who she seems,” he says. His phrase simply did numbers to the brains of everybody who has a parasocial relationship with Theron — listening to she is as she seems quantities to catnip for these stricken.
A pal and colleague who really is aware of the actor (not like all of us parasocial peeps) says that she was the one one who might make him snigger after his dad, Ivan, died. “After my father passed, all my friends came over to my house, and she’s the one who was passing out the drinks. Honestly, she was the one who really got me laughing again,” Tully director David Reitman recounts. “There’s an essential goodness to her, and I think it’s the reason people love watching her on screen no matter who she plays.” Plus, she’s an “extraordinary hang,” he says. If Harper’s Bazaar is a Theron-has-good-vibes propaganda automobile, then they’re doing a wonderful job.
