One of Charlize Theron's ex-boyfriends once described Charlize as being a "peaceful person with an unswayable moral compass." During a 2005 Oprah Show interview, Charlize reaffirmed this quote, adding, "I don't like drama." Charlize credited the teachings of her mother, Gerda Jacoba Aletta Maritz, for her strong moral character.

Here, in an archival clip, Charlize and Gerda open up about their values and their relationship, then and now.
