Why it takes longer for women to lose weight after 40 (even Charlize Theron) The movie “Tully” aims to be an honest depiction of life balancing the demands of a newborn with two other children, in all of its spit-up filled, sleep deprived, utterly exhausted glory.
It’s about a mom called Marlo (played by Charlize Theron) who just had her third child and is on the precipice of postpartum depression until her brother sends a night nanny (Tully) to her rescue.
To play the role, the ever-gorgeous and fit Charlize Theron (who in real life, is a busy mom of two children via adoption) had to gain 50 pounds of excess weight in order to accurately depict what a real postnatal body looks like.
Though Theron is no stranger to self-transformation — as her Oscar-winning turn in “Monster” does attest — she says losing the weight she gained for the part took a lot longer at 42 than it did in her 20s. “It took me a year and a half to lose that weight.
It was one of the hardest things that my body went through — and women do this every day,” she told NPR.
