The 36-year-old started her Hollywood career with a supporting role in the horror movie, playing a follower of an evil child killer in the adaption of Stephen King's short story, reported Daily Star.
Theron recalls boasting to her mother that she had made it but was shocked when she saw a preview and realised the producers had used another actress' scream in the place of hers.
"I felt like I'd made it! I remember very vividly they asked us to bring our own clothes and they had to be black. I was living hand to mouth at the time but I had invested in these nice black and white Pumas (sneakers). "And so, having never been in a film, I wore my new shoes.
An hour into shooting I was lying in a cornfield and fake blood was being dripped all over my new shoes. "But I remember telling my mum, 'I made it, I'm in a movie!'
Then going to the screening and hearing my voice dubbed... I didn't even say anything in the film, I only screamed! I felt a little bit like, 'Wow, my scream isn't good enough for the big screen'," Theron said.
