Charlize Theron Says She Will No Longer Alter Body For A Movie Role

Actress Charlize Theron said she would no longer alter her body for movie roles because losing the extra pounds for parts portraying heavier characters has become much more difficult.

The 48-year-old told Allure magazine that she’s still dealing with the effects of her fluctuating weight for movies like “Tully” as her metabolism has slowed as she has aged.

“I will never, ever do a movie again and say, ‘Yeah, I’ll gain 40 pounds,'” Theron said. “I will never do it again because you can’t take it off.”

“When I was 27, I did ‘Monster.’ I lost 30 pounds, like, overnight,” she added. “I missed three meals and I was back to my normal weight. Then I did it at 43 for ‘Tully,’ and I remember a year into trying to lose the weight, I called my doctor and I said, ‘I think I’m dying because I cannot lose this weight.'”

“And he was like, ‘You’re over 40. Calm down. Your metabolism is not what it was,'” the “Atomic Blonde” star continued. “Nobody wants to hear that.”

“The thing that really bums me out is that I make action movies now and if I hurt myself, I take way longer to heal than I did in my 20s,” the actress said. “More than my face, I wish I had my 25-year-old body that I can just throw against the wall and not even hurt tomorrow.”

“Now, if I don’t work out for three days and I go back to the gym, I can’t walk,” she added. “I can’t sit down on the toilet. It’s all those very real moments.”

In the same interview, Theron hit back at “bad plastic surgery” claims and admitted she’s just getting older.

“My face is changing, and I love that my face is changing and aging,” Theron said. “But people think I had a facelift. They’re like, ‘What did she do to her face?’ I’m like, ‘B****, I’m just aging! It doesn’t mean I got bad plastic surgery. This is just what happens.'”
