After a stint studying dance in NYC, Charlize headed to LA



"If you get thrown in the deep end, you learn how to swim or else you drown those are the two options you have," says Charlize. "I learned how to swim very quickly."

Aged 16, after entering and winning a modelling competition, she left home with the encouragement of her mother and headed for the catwalks of Milan. Then, when one fashion stint took her to New York, she decided not to leave, instead putting her ten years of dance training to use to land a place at the famed Joffrey School of Ballet.
