Charlize A Whizz

‘IF Prince Harry wants to continue his work with Africans who have had difficult upbringings when he returns from Lesotho, he could do worse than look up Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron.

Class 3C enjoyed maths lessons with Miss Theron

The 28-year-old when her mother Gerda shot her abusive husband dead in front of her teenaged daughter in act of self-defence at the family home in Benoni, near Johannesburg.

It was an incident that split the Theron family, many of whom haven’t spoken since – but it was the making of Charlize.

‘Worried that Charlize would be scarred by what happened,’ Hello! recalls, ‘and recognising her considerable talents, Gerda was determined for her daughter to get out of South Africa and pursue her dreams.

‘She encouraged her at the age of 16 to leave the country on a modelling assignment in Milan and allowed her to travel round Europe for the rest of the year.’

The rest, as they say, is history – and Hello! has the modelling photos to prove it.

Charlize may now be resident in the United States, but Harry may not have to travel that far to provide her with his own special Royal brand of pastoral care.

For the star of Monster could soon be a resident of the Emerald Isle.

‘I’ve fallen in love with Ireland,’ she says. ‘I’d love to live there one day and I absolutely love Guinness.’

She likes a drink, from recent photos in the National Enquirer it appears she likes the occasional spliff, all Charlize needs to do now is take up polo and she’ll be Harry’s perfect woman.

Oh – and of course there’s the small matter of her Irish boyfriend, Stuart Townsend.

Over to you, ‘Arry.’
