Charlize Theron's past 12 months of hard work solidified her a spot on the PopSugar 100. Her indie hit Young Adult made waves at the end of 2011, and Charlize earned a best actress nomination at the Golden Globes. Charlize quickly moved on to bigger blockbusters. She promoted Snow White and the Huntsman with costar Kristen Stewart throughout the year, leading up to the movie's huge June release. The big-screen action didn't stop there for Charlize, since Prometheus hit theaters in June too.
There was even more excitement for the star when she adopted a child, Jackson, and brought him along on her many travels with help from her own mom. Charlize is heading into another successful year with work on Mad Max: Fury Road, which she prepped for by shaving her head.
