Charlize Theron is a UN Messenger of Peace

Charlize Theron is designated by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as a United Nations Messenger of Peace at The United Nations on Monday in New York City. (She’s toting around Hogan’s tan messenger bag.)

Theron, 33, will have a special focus on ending violence against women by assisting Ban‘s campaign, “UNite to End Violence against Women.”

Charlize agreed with Ban to pressure Hollywood into making more movies about social issues. “I don’t necessarily want to forget that my job as an actor is to entertain,” Theron said.

“But let me tell you, there’s a tremendous feeling when you can do it with a sense of responsibility, a sense of truth, with a sense of greater truth, which is not necessarily always good to look at or nice to look at,” Charlize said.
