There are some people who the camera just loves. Perhaps that's why many models make the leap to acting.
Charlize Theron wanted to be a dancer, but won a one-year modeling contract at the age of 16. After spending a year traveling Europe as a model, she moved to the U.S. to study at the Joffrey Ballet School until a knee injury redirected her to Hollywood. She quickly rose to fame in the late 1990s with roles in the box office successes "The Devil's Advocate," "Mighty Joe Young" and "The Cider House Rules" before winning an Oscar for 2003's "Monster."
