But the Fast X actress once spoke about an MCU movie that made her emotional as she could relate it to a personal level. Black Panther, which is hailed as one of the best MCU ventures also impressed Theron and made her emotional as the African actress could feel various issues seen in the movie.

“For me to watch Black Panther as the person I am—and I know this sounds crazy to a lot of people—but it is a very emotional thing, it was a very emotional thing for me to watch it, I was born and raised in South Africa during the apartheid era, and I am very much a white African who lived and thrived under tremendously dark circumstances. And that really marks you as a person. Whether that’s your ideology or not, you’re living in it.”
