Charlize Theron Covers 'W' Magazine February 2012

Charlize Theron Covers 'W' Magazine February 2012

Charlize Theron takes the dual cover of W Magazine‘s February 2012 issue (Brad Pitt is on the other cover).

Here’s what the 36-year-old Young Adult actress opened up about:

On if she was always tall and blonde and beautiful growing up in South Africa: “For the first eight years of my life, I didn’t have front teeth. I was pretty sick as an infant, and antibiotics rotted them. But then I started to take dance classes, and I eventually got some teeth [laughs]. When I was 16, I went to Milan to model.”

On if she dreamed of being an actress: “I wanted to be a ballerina, but I was too tall, and I had too many injuries. What I loved as a ballerina was telling stories, and I could also do that with acting, so I eventually moved to L.A.”

    I wish Brad & Angelina would be on a magazine cover together. Could you imagine?? :) But of course, they’d have to do another movie together first in order for that to happen and they probably won’t due to their working arrangement. Ugh.

    PS i see some fanatics of other actors coming to creat some troubels, like jealous b!tches they better stay in there actors fanatic threads, it’s quite cool and peacful in Charlize’s threads there is a nice harmony.

  • teri

    Brad is so sexy, love him to pieces.

  • Cheery

    Both look hot :D but too much photoshop on Charlize’s cover.

    And agree with brangelinafanatic, Brad and Angelina need to do another cover/pictorial stat! I think the last time they appeared together was for W Magazine in 2005.

  • goldy

    Magnificent!!!!!!!! the destiny is incredible those injuries had probably changed her direction, glad that you’ve became an actress, and what a talented actress congrats to the nomination of the gg.

  • ab

    committed to the insane fan of aniston those are the losers who write and appear in the just jared brad Tell.

  • Emily

    One of the most beautiful woman i’ve ever seen ! love her out of the tabloids spotlight, famous for her talented work, we see her only when it came to work, thats what i love about her and makes to me different from the rest.

  • linda

    Her life inspires me, you know the way she lost her father is dramatic, she also lost her brother a sibiling brother in a car accident..she is a real brave woman who handels her life very well she makes it a success, some people just see this astonishing gorgeous woman, but they don’t know the things she had been throught, i admire her courage really, she has choosen to love the life, and not get into any dark wild crazy things, like some celebrities we hear, she know the real value of the life, and is now giving back to people who suffers and live similar dramas. Good for all your success girl you deserve it, wish you all the best in this life.

  • Anne

    Some media h*es should take some notes from this private class act lady! she looks stunning actually too beautiful for words!!!

  • Tazla

    It looks like they airbrushed that ugly neck mole she has. She should get rid of that thing. That’s all I see when I look at her, the mole on her neck.

  • jojo

    The most beautiful actress hands down !!!

  • love her

    I love her too ! she is down to earth and private, she lives quite simple life in comparison to some hollyweirds, she doesn’t own yaghts and private jets…she is still in touch with some of her friends of her high school, her co stars says that she is one lovely funny cool girl, she doesn’t take her self seriously, i mean she is an A list international Oscar Winner a UN Messenger of Peace, a Dior icon face, her name is marked on the walk of fame, she’s been honored by Nelson Mandela who called personally, who btw says she’s put South Africa in the map…i mean all that and she doesn’t play im too important than thou…that’s what’s so refreshing about her.

  • roxanne

    Holy crap! They photoshopped her face to hell.

  • amy

    Sublime !

    Thanks to the poster Fanny for posting the link of the Elle France cover ! she looked like an elegant sexy femme fatal love this pic

  • Ella

    Love Charlize but who else feels as though the more pretty and popular you are, the more dramatic and horrific you have to make your childhood seem? Just an observation.

  • mary


    I don’t see the connection with Charlize from what you are saying, do you know the story of Charlize Theron? or you are just putting everyone in the same case, Charlize Theron witnesses the death of her father in front of her when she was 14, more horrific than this i don’t know what could be, i think this kind of observation is insensive, since you haven’t lived that nightmare ( and i don’t wish it to you) you have no clue, that is not an imagination thing if you are trying to make it sound like that, she hates talking about this episode when journalists ask her that, she is not one of those spoiled celebrities born in LA who cries and want commit suicide for whatever stupid things, she is against those things she says she doesn’t want to be a victime and has learnd growing to not be reduced to that.

  • ruth

    Re: Brad Pitt
    Oh Lordy! Gorgeous man.
    I think Angie should give a day away with Brad Pitt.
    It would be charitable.

  • Bleh

    Oh, whoa. What a goddess!!! There may be too much photoshop, but even without make-up she is beautiful. Charlize Theron is the MOST beautiful woman in Hollywood! Nobody can compete with her! Nobody! Period!

  • I’m buying a ticket

    Brad and Charlize in a movie together.

    Directed by Adrian Lyne. would’ve been great if 9 1/2 weeks had not already been done (or Indecent Proposal)!

    I’m buying a ticket (a few).

  • julie

    charlize, ..she looks beautiful, also brad is so hot, brad makes every one look good, well, angie does not need help, but everyone else.

  • http://yahoo LOL

    Charlize, Angelina, Nicole, Natalie, etc. A first-class beautiful actress is in HW.
    Although Maniston is regrettable, it is not beautiful and first-class.
    He is not an actress but a comedian.
    Since trolls accepts it, it is attacking to Aj.

  • Helen

    WOW for W cover and editorial. Charlize Theron looks amazing.
    But why they airbushed her cover photo so much?! Theron’s face does NOT need that much airbrush, save it for those who do! But either way, can she vamp it up or what! Another fantastic cover.

  • Carl

    This has been wonderful week for all Charlize Theron’s fans. And hopefully this will culminate with her winning an Golden Globe Award!!

  • Diego

    There is nothing strange in the nose of Charlize! Just click the photo to see the right size to realize that her nose is nothing strange. We pay more attention before any criticism, huh? =)

  • charlie abltimore

    Now this is a glamourous couple – come on Brad drop that miserable twig and go for charlize!!!
