World Stars Whose Talent Was Discovered by Accident

Charlize Theron


The international critics claim that Charlize Theron became one of the greatest actresses of our time thanks to her constant bursts of anger and strong will. Back when the future superstar was just a 19-year-old girl, she moved to Los-Angeles, but, she was failing at getting an acting gig in the city. Thankfully, her mom was supporting her dreams and sent her a small check from SA (South Africa, her homeland). However, the staff at the bank refused to serve the young lady. Obviously, Charlie was furious, and she started screaming at the teller. Believe it or not, the gentleman at the bank standing behind the troubled gal was a talent agent for the acting industry. And, he was impressed enough to give Theron his card. Twelve months later, the natural-born actress got her first-ever role in a horror movie – Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest.
