The cast of Spitting Image once, rather harshly, sang that they’d never met a nice South African. That, however, was in a time when the closest thing that nation had to a sex symbol was some chick called Robyn Ireland or something.
Then came along Charlize Theron who, in Devil’s Advocate, gave the finest ‘naked and possessed’ performance since the pink-haired naked zombie girl in Return of the Living Dead. In honour of the woman who has done more for the international image of South Africa than any old rugby match, we’ve made a gallery of her looking great. That’s it, down there.
