Mandatory Staff Picks: The Best Charlize Theron Movies (Including ‘The Old Guard’)

Charlize Theron is a criminally underrated actress. She proved her chops early on with an Oscar-winning performance as a serial killer in 2003’s Monster, yet most of her roles since have failed to require the gravitas that she could so clearly bring to the silver screen. Still, even when starring in blockbuster popcorn flicks or ridiculous comedies, Theron brings her all to every part and helps us escape through her cinematic characters and their stories. As her next big role (in Netflix’s The Old Guard) approaches, we rounded up her 10 best films so far. Here’s hoping Hollywood gives her meatier parts in the future. We know she’s capable of so much more.
