Charlize Theron Says She 'Finally' Conquered One of Her Biggest Fears!

Charlize Theron is getting back on the saddle!

While promoting her new Netflix movie The Old Guard, the 44-year-old actress revealed that making the movie finally made her confront one of her biggest fears – riding horses.

Charlize said that she used to be an avid rider until she was 12-years-old when she was bucked off a horse and was knocked unconscious.

“For some reason on this film, I decided to finally address that fear,” Charlize shared EW. “It was the thing I definitely gave the most time to, even though there was very little of it in the movie. I’m really grateful that I got to have that experience because it was a good one for me to get over.”

“I love horses. I want my children to be around horses,” Charlize continued. “But I always had this fear when I was on them that something could go terribly wrong at any instant. So it was like a metaphor for my life in a weird way, this movie. It was therapeutic for me.”

While filming the new movie, Charlize also tore a ligament, but waited a really long time to get treatment!

The Old Guard will be out on Netflix on Friday, July 10.
