Charlize Theron had No Trouble in Losing Weight after Monster

The 2003 movie Monster established Charlize Theron as the first South African actress to have won an Academy Award. She had to gain a lot of weight for this movie. Similarly, for the 2018 movie Tully, Theron gained 50 pounds of weight and she revealed that she struggled to lose the weight. She explained both of these instances, saying:

“When I was 27, I did Monster, I lost 30 pounds, like, overnight. 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.’ Nobody wants to hear that.”
