When Charlize Theron first hit Hollywood, she was typically typecast as the girlfriend or the wife, any role that would take advantage of her stunning beauty. These roles consisted of small parts in films like Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest (which was her first starring role), the Tom Hanks film That Thing You Do!, and Trial and Error which starred Seinfeld’s Michael Richards and Jeff Daniels. As time went on and her career began to flourish, it became more about her amazing talent than just her good looks.

This was never more apparent when Charlize Theron took on the 2003 role in Monster, a true story based on the life of Daytona Beach prostitute Aileen Wuornos, the infamous serial killer. For that role, Theron shunned her beauty by gaining weight and wearing prosthetic makeup. It eventually brought her an Academy Award for Best Actress.

Netflix has a number of Charlize Theron films it is featuring. Let’s take a look.

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

Charlize Theron does evil very well and she really showcases it in Snow White and the Huntsman. Here Theron plays Queen Ravenna, the evil stepmother to Snow White (Kristen Stewart). Now, this is not a live-action Disney remake, nor is it affiliated with Disney in any way, so the story has a bit of a different flavor to it.

Chris Hemsworth is Eric the Huntsman, a widower who is approached by the Queen to capture Snow White and in return, the Queen promises to bring Eric’s wife back to life. Theron reprised her role as Ravenna in the 2016 sequel, The Huntsman: Winter’s War.
