She was raised on her parent's farm in the Johannesburg area, and at the age of 13, she enrolled in The National School of the Arts.
At age 16, she flew to Milan, Italy on a one-year modelling contract after taking first place in a local competition.

In 1994, Charlize used a one-way ticket her mother had purchased for her to go to Los Angeles in order to pursue a career as an actress.
