Following a three-year hiatus from the big screen, Theron returned to the spotlight in 2011 with Young Adult. Directed by Jason Reitman, the film earned critical acclaim especially for Theron’s performance. She was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and several other high profile awards. Theron played the Wicked Queen in the film Snow White & the Huntsman, which began production in 2011 and was released in 2012.

In 2011, she described her process for becoming the characters in her film:
When I’m figuring out a character, for me it’s easy, since once I say yes to something, I become super-obsessed about it – and I have an obsessive nature in general. How I want to play it starts at that moment. It’s a very lonely, internal experience. I think about all the time – I observe things, I see things and file things, everything geared to what I’m going to do. I’m obsessed with the human condition. You read the script and become obsessed with [a character’s] nature, her habits. When the camera rolls, it’s time to do my job, to do the honest truth. You can’t do that part of the work when you’re [in the middle of] making the film. At least I can’t.

In 2012, she starred in Ridley Scott’s science fiction film Prometheus. On 7 February 2013 it was announced that Theron was cast as Libby Day, the lead character in the film adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel Dark Places. The film is to be directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner, and Theron will also have a producer credit.

In 2013 Vulture/NYMag named her the 68th Most Valuable Star in Hollywood saying “We’re just happy that Theron can stay on the list in a year when she didn’t come out with anything … any actress who’s got that kind of skill, beauty, and ferocity ought to have a permanent place in Hollywood.
