Charlize Theron’s Weight
She has always sported a very lean, slim, fit and even tight body. It is obvious that her 55 kilograms are as a result of hard work and compromise. If there is one other thing she is known for though, it is her ability to alter her weight drastically for her movie roles. In 2003, she pulled off one of the most epic weight gains on screen.
She gained 30 pounds for her portrayal of Aileen Wuornos, a real life serial killer in the movie Monster. In order to gain the weight, she simply stopped all her usual fitness routines and ate a whole lot of donuts and potato chips. So in order to lose the weight she did just the opposite. Lets fast forward back to recent times, Charlize Theron has done it again.
She is currently starring in a film called Tully and as part of her role she had to gain 35 pounds in order to transform her body to look like that of a mother of three. It took her about 6 months to gain the additional weight. Talk about committing to the role.
