"This is the thing that really devastated me when I was doing my research," Charlize Theron says about studying for her role in North Country as a woman who fights sexual harassment at a Minnesota mine. "I think a lot of people think that this only happens at the workplace, and then when they go home it's fine. But it's so unbelievable. It really infiltrated their social structure. It influenced their children, their husbands. I think that's what people don't realize: It's just relentless."
