Charlize Theron Pays Respects at Nelson Mandela's Memorial Service

Charlize Theron sits alongside singer Bono at the official memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela held at FNB Stadium Tuesday (December 10) in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The 38-year-old actress was also joined at the event by President Obama, who spoke at the service, and the Clinton family – Hillary, Bill, and their daughter Chelsea.

“His struggle was your struggle. His triumph was your triumph. Your dignity and hope found expression in his life, and your freedom, your democracy is his cherished legacy,” President Obama said during his speech. “He was not a bust made of marble; he was a man of flesh and blood – a son and husband, a father and a friend. That is why we learned so much from him; that is why we can learn from him still.”
