Charlize Theron – she of the cropped hairdo, amazing legs, chameleon acting skills and Academy Award-winning career – has just proven that above all, she is a generous friend.

Speaking about her relationship with fashion in an interview, she expressed her appreciation for how people have been very generous to her. However, she never takes having plenty to wear for granted.

"I'm always very aware that I'm one person and I can't wear everything," Charlize said. "The idea of stuff just hanging in my closet and not being used – there's a little bit of the African in me that gets bothered by that."

But Charlize wastes not, so what does she do with her clothes? She gives it to those who will wear them.

"My whole concept in life is if you're not using it, you should give it to somebody else so they can use it. And so my girlfriends are really happy about my theory on that." Lucky them! And just to add to how awesome it would be to be Charlize's friend, her closet has a name and it is Narnia.

"It's like the closet that just keeps giving," she explained. "I'm so fortunate to be in that position because my closet is always filling up with these amazing gifts...my girlfriends have it really good."
