Charlize Theron graces the cover of Vogue magazine’s December 2011 issue. Inside, she discusses winning her Academy Award, her teenage crush, and being single.
On winning the Best Actress award for Monster: “It was life-changing—it opened a lot of doors. But it made people have a lot of opinions about what should happen next. You realize quickly that you can never please everybody.”
On her teenage crush: “Johan Botha! I haven’t thought about him in so long. He was a really good cyclist. I think I spoke five words to him. I would lie in my bed and listen to those heartbreak eighties songs and think it was the end of the world that this boy did not know I existed.”
On being single: “I’ve never been single. This is the first time in my life. From the time I was nineteen, I’ve been in relationships, literally gone from one to the other within a month. It’s been good for me. I’m a creature who’s really found her comfort zone in relationships.”
