The Oscar-winning actress was just 15 years old when her dad, Charles Theron, stormed into the family's home near Johannesburg, South Africa and fired several times through the bedroom door with the actress and her mother on other side. 'My father was so drunk that he shouldn't have been able to walk when he came into the house with a gun, ' she told NPR. She goes on to share that both she and her mother were in her bedroom when her father tried to push his way through the door. 'He took a step back and just shot through the door three times. None of those bullets ever hit us, which is just a miracle. ' During all frightening drama, her mother, Gerda Theron, grabs her own handgun, opens fire in retaliation, and kills him. 'But in self-defense, she ended the threat, ' Monster star add. After investigation, 1991 shooting was legally adjudged to have been self-defense, and her mother did not face any charges. Theron's father had a long history of being unpredictable drunk, she reveal. 'My father was a very sick man. My father was an alcoholic all my life. I only know him one way, and that was as an alcoholic, ' she explain. The Mad Max: Fury Road actress, 44, makes a point of asserting that she's not ashamed of talking about tragic events in public. 'This family violence, this kind of violence that happens within the family, is something that I share with a lot of people, ' she say. 'I do think that the more we talk about these things, more we realize we are not alone in any of it. I think, for me, it's just always been that this story really is about growing up with addicts and what that does to person. ' Theron also confessed that she perceived her family dynamic as a youngster as a 'hopeless situation. ' I think our family was an incredibly unhealthy one. And all of it, I think, scars us in a way. Of course, I wish what happened that night would never happen. Again again Its unfortunately what happens when you dont get to the root of these issues. ' In the past, Theron has credited her mother with helping shape her into a strong and brave woman. Also, during her NPR interview she talked more about being sexually harassed by a 'very famous' movie director in 1994. Her first film was 1995's Children of Corn III: Urban Harvest.
