Charlize Theron Spills The Beans: Never Again Will She Do This!

Actress Charlize Theron has revealed that she will no longer undergo extreme body transformations for movie roles due to the challenges she faces in shedding the extra pounds afterward. The 48-year-old star spoke candidly about the toll that fluctuating weight for roles has taken on her body, especially as her metabolism has slowed with age. Theron expressed her decision in an interview with Allure magazine.

Theron recounted her experiences of altering her weight for roles, highlighting the stark differences between her younger and current self. She recalled instances like her role in “Monster” at 27, where she lost 30 pounds seemingly overnight by skipping meals, in contrast to her experience at 43 for the film “Tully,” where the weight loss proved stubbornly difficult and frustrating. Theron attributed these challenges to her changing metabolism as she aged.

“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 actress, known for her roles in action-packed movies, also lamented the changes her body has undergone in terms of healing and resilience. She expressed a longing for her 25-year-old body that would bounce back quickly from physical strain, compared to her current self which takes longer to recover after injuries or intense workouts.

In the same interview, Theron candidly addressed rumors of plastic surgery and acknowledged the natural aging process. She confronted claims of “bad plastic surgery” and asserted that her changing face is simply a result of getting older, expressing her appreciation for the changes her face has gone through.

“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.’”
