Charlize Theron Calls Herself ‘Very Fat’ After Gaining Weight for a Role

Charlize Theron called herself “very fat” while being honored for her charity work at the amfAR gala.

The Academy Award-winning actress, who opted for a loose-fitting black Dior gown at the 2016 amfAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles, Calif. Thursday evening (Oct. 27, 2016), claimed to have a good reason to hide her body.

“Yes, I am very fat right now,” the actress said, according to E! News, after Chelsea Handler joked about the weight she gained for a movie role.

Theron, 44, reportedly gained 30 pounds to play a mother of three in the upcoming film, Tully. However, this isn’t the first time she’s undergone a transformation: she put on weight for her role in Monster and shaved her head for Mad Max: Fury Road.

Other guests at the gala included Lea Michele, Heidi Klum, Jon Hamm, and Jason Derulo performed. Check out the gallery above to see who else was there.
