This star has been around for quite some time and she still doesn’t look like she’s aged a day, she has to do something right and we hope to find out what it is. Before we get into Charlize Theron’s body measurements, weight and height, it would be nice to learn some facts about the actress herself.
She was born on August 7, 1975, in Benoni, Transvaal Province, South Africa, as Charlize Theron. Charlize was actually named after her late father Charles Theron.
The circumstances surrounding Charles Theron’s death were not as widespread as one might think. Her mother actually shot him for self-defense. He was an alcoholic and one night in a drunken seizure, while threatening Charlize with a gun at hand, her mother shot him.
Well, here is an interesting one, her mother tongue is not English. Charlize, born in South Africa, speaks Afrikaans perfectly. She claims that she learned English while watching American and British television shows when she was younger.
Charlize brought her foot into showbiz through a model gig. In the same year, her father died, her mother took her to a model-building competition. Fortunately, she won and got the chance to go to Milan to pursue a career as a model.
She is so beautiful now that it would be hard to imagine a time when the star had rotten teeth. Yes, as a child Charlize took a lot of antibiotics to treat jaundice, and that led to the decay of her milk teeth. At this point, she had to have her teeth removed… They did not re-grow until she was 11 years old.
Charlize received an Oscar for Best Actress at the Oscars for her work in the movie Monster. This makes her the first South African woman to win an Oscar.
She proved once again that she was a woman with big bones when she decided to shave her head for the movie Mad Max: Fury Road instead of using CGI.
Here is a funny note at the end, the actress was once punched in the face by Will Smith…. it was a mistake, but he tried to demonstrate some boxing maneuvers he had learned as Muhammad Ali.
Before we continue with general facts about the actress, let’s start with the subject at hand, starting with Charlize Theron’s greatness.
Charlize Theron’s Height
It is obvious that she has no place on the list of short girls, Charlize Theron’s size brings her into the same category as some of the bigger ladies in the industry. Here’s what she said about how tall she is, ‘I’m 5-10, 5-9…I have a really bad posture, and my head is always down.
As usual, her statement triggered some intense speculation and debate about how big the actress actually is. Many people compared her size with other celebrities while trying to figure out how tall she looks when she’s not on the screen. Despite all this, the actress’s stated height is 5 feet 10 inches high.
Here is a list of other notable personalities as big as the star. Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Tyra Banks, Adriana Lima, and Blake Lively all share the height of Charlize Theron.
Charlize Theron’s Weight
She has always worn a very slim, slim, fit and even tight body. It is obvious that her 55 kilograms are the result of hard work and compromise. If there’s another thing she’s known for, it’s her ability to drastically change her weight for her film roles. In 2003, she went through one of the most epic weight gains on screen.
She won 30 pounds for her portrayal of Aileen Wuornos, a real serial killer in the movie Monster. To increase the weight, she simply stopped all her usual fitness routines and ate a lot of donuts and potato chips. So to lose weight, she did exactly the opposite. Let’s fast forward back to the last times, Charlize Theron has done it again.
She is currently playing in a movie called Tully and as part of her role, she had to gain 35 pounds to transform her body to look like that of a mother of three children. It took her about 6 months to gain the extra weight. Talk about committing to the role.
