- By

Charlize Theron

In 1991, Charize Theron witnessed a murder that involved both of her parents. Her dad came home one night in a drunken rage with his brother and threatened to kill Theron and her mother Gerda. He fired a gun into the “Monster” star’s room and her mom grabbed a handgun of her own firing at the two men, killing him and wounding his brother. Gerda never faced prosecution because the attorney general ruled that she had acted in self-defense.
