Charlize Theron’s Front Teeth Were Rotted Out

Charlize Theron tells W Magazine that she was an ugly kid until she turned 16. For the first eight years of her life, Charlize Theron didn’t have any front teeth because antibiotics rotted them out. Of course, her teeth eventually grew out and she went to Milan to model. She still has to pad her bra though. Celebrities. They’re just like us!

Like the “cutlets.” Mavis wears flesh-­colored glue-on gel-filled “breasts” over her real ones.
I wear those! If you don’t have boobs, you wear those cutlets. I heard a story of a girl who was on a date, started making out, and thought, Oh, he’s going to touch the cutlets! So she went to the bathroom to take them off, but her purse was too small to put them in there. I always thought that was a funny image, a woman not knowing what to do with these things that you stick onto your boobs. It’s just the most bizarre, unsexy thing there is—so I added that to Mavis.

Growing up in South Africa, were you always tall and blonde and beautiful?
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.

Did you dream 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. W Magazine

Oh, sure, sure. I was an ugly kid too. Too tall and my biceps were too bulgy. And I also wanted to be an international model but my features were too chiseled. Apparently if I had modeled, digital artists would be out of a job so they got together and banned me from the industry. True story.
