In a candid interview,Charlize Theron opens up about the night her mother killed her father in self defense.

TheBombshellstar tells NPR, "My father was a very sick man. My father was an alcoholic all my life."

She explains that when she was 15 her father was "so drunk" one night "that he shouldn't have been able to walk when he came into the house with a gun." Charlize and her mother were in her bedroom "leaning against the door, because he was trying to push through the door. So both of us were leaning against the door from the inside to have him not be able to push through. 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," she says. "But in self-defense, she ended the threat."

Her mother had grabbed her gun and shot her husband. No charges were filed as it was deemed to have been in self defense.
