Charlize Theron landed the cover of the upcoming September Vogue. The issue might be a little slimmer than in years past, but Charlize looked fabulous in her latest Western-inspired spread. She sat down for a chat ahead of the release of The Burning Plain, speaking about her relationship with Stuart, her background, and career. Here's more:

  • On Stuart: "We’ve been together for almost nine years, so by now we’ve kind of realized that we’re going to take this journey together."
  • On her beginnings: "You know how they say, 'Great actors come from the theater'? Well, I never did theater, but I did ballet, and that to me was my foundation."
  • On playing strong characters: "I can't tell you about that. But I know how I feel about facing my own weaknesses, and playing into my weaknesses and finding that within my characters. My weaknesses are way more interesting to me than my strengths."
