Charlize and Stuart have been happily together for seven years and she says that their relationship has changed her for the better.
'He got through to me on a level that no one else did. Stuart made me softer. He was one of the few guys who wasn’t afraid of me. What he saw was not toughness but vulnerability,' she told Elle magazine.
'I want to know that I wake up every morning with him because I want to, not because a piece of paper says so,’ she said.
Theron won an Oscar in 2003 for her role in Monster but her own life has been packed with drama.
When she was just 15 she witnessed her mother shoot her father dead at the family home in South Africa. Her mother opened fire on her husband in self-defence against his domestic violence.
