I know in previous interviews I told everyone I wanted to wait to have my b~~~~ done until after I had kids, but I could be 50 by then. I’m in my prime right now. I’m gonna be 29 and I want to be as hot as I can! I call this my little mommy makeover. Being a mom, obviously your b~~~~ are destroyed by having kids, especially breast feeding. I breastfed Giovanna for a year. I want to look hot for my husband but I also want to feel great about myself and that was just an insecurity that I had.
According to various reports, Charlize Theron has been on a weight gain diet in order to look the part (literally) for her new movie Tully – spotted here, Charlize, looking noticeably different on set this week.
According to the Daily Mail, the actress gained 35 pounds for this role. And this is not the first time the actress made such efforts in order to play a character – back in 2003, the actress suffered a major makeunder for her role in Monster.
On being fit versus being skinny and unwell in the past:
“I love my shape because I feel strong and fit, and that makes me feel confident. When I look at pictures of myself when I was 19, my body was bangin’, but I was killing myself. I was working out two and a half hours a day and eating the bare minimum to survive. I was so miserable. I wasn’t healthy. To be honest, I looked like a kid. Now I’m embracing the fact that I’m a woman with curves.”
On her workouts:
“I exercise three to six times a week, but usually I do five days of hard-core training. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I do Tracy Anderson or Body by Simone or I work out with my trainer, Astrid Swan. Tuesdays and Thursdays, I do Core Power Yoga, which I love. If I’m doing something special, like shooting the SHAPE cover, or when I want to tone up quickly, I’ll also take a SoulCycle class. Saturdays, I go on a really long hike with my friends or take another yoga class, depending on how I feel. Sunday is my reboot day. I try to eat healthy and do something outside like walk my dogs. I relax, enjoy the day and get mentally and spiritually prepared for the week. It gets me excited for what’s ahead.”
On exercising with friends:
“I love going to classes with my girlfriends [actresses Nina Dobrev and Sarah Hyland are two of her closest]. We’ll call each other or send a group text and organize. Sometimes we sign up for Spartan races and have a blast. Last fall we took a girls’ trip to Mexico. I had just finished a dancing tour with my brother, Derek, and was super motivated and working out like crazy. My friends asked me to teach a class one of the days we were on the trip, and I said, ‘One day? I’ll do it every day!’ So rather than drink tequila shots and get crazy, we turned it into a healthy trip. Every morning, we got up and I taught an hourlong mix of Tracy Anderson, Body by Simone, and yoga moves. Then we’d put on our swimsuits and go to the beach or the pool. Don’t get me wrong: We definitely enjoyed cocktails and chips and salsa while we were there, but after our daily workouts we always felt much better about ourselves.”
