The 48-year-old Fast X star has so many iconic projects to her name, and they highlight her versatility.
However, during a recent interview, she opened up about something that she isn’t willing to do anymore at this point in her career.
“I will never, ever do a movie again and say, ‘Yeah, I’ll gain 40 pounds,’”
Why? “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. I missed three meals and I was back to my normal weight,” she recalled.
“That stuff is hard,” she said, adding that it then continues through the red carpet promotions when her stylist Leslie Fremar adjusts how she dresses her.
“I call her and say, ‘I’m doing this movie about postpartum depression and I’ve gained like 40 pounds.’
she’s like, ‘Oh, my gosh! Oh, my gosh! How am I gonna dress you?’ It’s not something that you can just figure out last minute,”
,” Charlize said. “She’s put a lot of blazers over open backs for me.”
