She radiates, she dazzles, she (insert awesome word here).
Life wasn't so pretty, however, for the starlet growing up as she apparently had no teeth!
Here's what the actress said:
"My early childhood was quite devastating. I had no teeth until I was 11. I had these fangs because I had jaundice when I was a kid and I was put on so many antibiotics that my teeth rotted. They had to cut them out. So I never had milk teeth. That was tough, you know, being in school having photos taken while I was pretending I had teeth. It was hideous."
We're sure that can be quite traumatic to be left without any teeth while growing up.
Kids can be quite vicious when they're given ammunition such as that.
Although we still can't help but feel even a toothless Charlize was still a pretty young thang.
Also the fact that she's so gorgeous now probably makes those growing pains sting just a little bit less.
