Charlize Theron Reveals 'Very Long Journey' to Lose 50 Pounds Packed on for 'Tully' (Exclusive)

Charlize Theron is a dedicated actress.
The 42-year-old actress won an Oscar for her role and intense transformation in the 2003 drama Monster, and now Theron has completed another "very long" physical journey in her latest film, Tully.

ET's Kevin Frazer sat down with Theron at the movie's junket at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles on Tuesday, where they discussed how she gained weight for the role of Marlo, maintained it, and ultimately lost it after a year and a half.

"I gained close to 50 pounds for this film," Theron shared. "I just I wanted to feel what this woman felt, and I think that was a way for me to get closer to her and get into that mindset. You know, it was a huge surprise to me. I got hit in the face pretty hard with depression. Yeah, for the first time in my life I was eating so much processed foods and I drank way too much sugar. I was not that fun to be around on this film."

Theron had about three and a half months to gain weight for the film, in which she plays a mother of three who is gifted a nanny.
"The first three weeks are always fun because you're just like a kid in a candy store. So it was fun to go and have breakfast at In-N-Out and have two milkshakes," she explained. "And then after three weeks, it's not fun anymore. Like, all of a sudden you're just done eating that amount and then it becomes a job. I remember having to set my alarm in the middle of the night in order to just maintain [the weight]."

"I would literally wake up at two in the morning and I'd have a cup of cold macaroni and cheese just next to me," she recalled. "I would wake up and I would just eat it...I would just, like, shove it in my throat. It's hard to maintain that weight."
