Washington: Charlize Theron has overcome her nicotine addiction but she doesn’t talk about it for fear of a jinx.
The South African actress admits that the smoking habit had become a deadly obsession but she doesn’t like to talk about how she overcame the addiction in case she feels the urge to light up once more.
“I was highly addicted. I thought, ‘I don’t smoke like normal people. I smoke to die,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Vogue magazine.
Theron had won an Academy Award for her role of serial killer in the film Monster and became the first African to win an Oscar in a major acting category.
