Charlize Theron Covers Forbes Woman Africa June – July Edition 2015
The South African and American actress, producer, and fashion model Charlize Theron is featured on the cover of this month’s ‘Forbes Woman Africa’ publication! Charlize stars in the film ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘, and we were pleased to discover that she got in touch with her more powerful, wilder side for this particular role, causing feminists to blog furiously about how awesome she is – in the film and in real life!
Playing Imperator Furiosa doesn’t seem like a natural choice for the sweet-natured Academy Award winning actress and UN Messenger of Peace, but she apparently rocked the part! Furiosa is a leader in war, and she leads her army of fanatics while driving a war wagon using a sacred steering wheel fetish. She lost her left arm and has to wear a prosthetic, but she doesn’t elt that minor detail slow her down. The matriarchal theme of the film struck a chord within female viewers, some of which felt quite empowered and identified with the character to some point.
