Stars Discovered by Chance

Charlize Theron

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the luckiest actress of all? It's Charlize Theron, who threw a fit in an L.A. bank that led to a hugely successful Hollywood career. Theron was attempting to cash a check from her mother, who was in South Africa, but was unable to do so since the bank refused to honor the international check. Theron reportedly threw a tantrum of heroically epic proportions, completely unaware that the man behind her was a Hollywood agent. Apparently impressed by her impassioned performance, the agent helped the 19-year-old land her first role.-XFINITY Entertainment Staff
