Theron Urges Press To Bury Father's Death

Hollywood actress CHARLIZE THERON has begged the media to stop mentioning her father's violent death - because she wants to "stop living in the past".
Theron was 15 when she saw her mother, Gerda, shoot dead her alcoholic and abusive father, Charles, in self-defence.
The Oscar-winner is constantly asked about the incident in interviews - and admits seeing so many stories about her family history is upsetting for her.
She says, "For me, this thing happened so long ago and I just really wish people could move on from it. I don't live in the past. When I read headlines about me saying, 'When she was 15, her mother shot her father,' it's very sensational for me. It happened 18 years ago.
"Since then I've had a complete, full life, and my God, if I've been living the past 18 years in the past because of one event, someone should put a gun to my head and put me out of my misery because that's a waste of my life."
