One of Charlize Theron’s best performances came with her work in director Jason Reitman’s 2011 feature Young Adult, and now she reteams with Reitman for Tully. The picture centers on an understandably exhausted mom (Theron) whose life takes a change for the better with the help from a nanny (Mackenzie Davis). To fully submerge herself in the role, Theron gained 50 pounds, and that was after she was completely fit and trim for the action flick Atomic Blonde!
“I didn’t want to do something that felt like just not true to women out there who do this every day,” said Theron. “They get pregnant and they gain all this weight and it’s a struggle. And I didn’t want to be an actress who just shows up and was like ‘give me a fat suit.’ I guess I wanted to feel as close as possibly I could to what that feels like and empathize with that.”
Click on the media bar below to hear Theron talks about not feeling alone while making Tully:
Charlize Theron’s new movie, Tully, tells the story of a woman’s trials and tribulations after giving birth to her third child. Written by Juno’s Diablo Cody, it presents a frank, stark depiction of the difficulties of new motherhood in a way that’s rarely shown on film. Theron says she’s never seen anything quite like it and that, even though she was in the movie, she was able to completely lose herself in the character as she watched it.
Charlize Theron delivered a standout performance in Jason Reitman’s 2011 feature Young Adult, and now she reteams with the director in the drama Tully. Diablo Cody, who penned Young Adult and the Reitman flick Juno, is Tully’s screenwriter.
The story centers on Marlo (Theron), a mother whose life takes on a new direction after her brother (Mark Duplass) hires a night nanny named Tully (Mackenzie Davis) to give her a little breathing room. Theron should be in fine form once again with the flick, and Davis may have actually landed her breakout role (at least in cinema, as she was excellent in Halt and Catch Fire).

Theron can also be seen in Gringo, a dark comedy that opens March 9. Tully opens nationwide April 20.
