Charlize Theron fell in love with Will Smith in a snap
Glamorous actress Charlize Theron once claimed that she fell “madly in love” with her Hancock co-star Will Smith. In an interview given to Daily Record, in the year 2008, she said she was very happy with her then-partner Stuart Townsend, with whom she split up the following year. Back then, she shared the story of how she fell in love with Smith in under 5 minutes.
“We didn’t get the chance to work that much together and yet it took us all of about five minutes to really fall madly in love with each other,” said the Atomic Blonde actress. She went on to share the effortless banter and the loving brother-sister relationship the two shared over the course of them working together. The duo worked in a total of two films, Hancock and Bagger Vance. Will portrays a drunk superhero in Hancock and has managed to completely annoy everyone in the comedy. Meanwhile, Bagger Vance was a flop.
Charlize is working on a Netflix show School for Good and Evil at the moment. The show is adapted from a bestseller book of the same name by Soman Chainani. The story is about two close friends Sophie and Agatha who are carried away to a magical school, where aspiring heroes and villains are educated to maintain the balance between good and evil. The duo find themselves on opposite sides of an epic struggle. The show is releasing on Netflix on October 21, 2022.
