Charlize Theron deliberately gained 35 pounds for her role in Jason Reitman’s upcoming comedy Tully. But Charlize Theron presented a slimmer figure while running errands in Hollywood on Thursday with her kids, Jackson and August.
The 41-year-old star was beaming as she showcased her slender pins in a pair of distressed jeans.

The Academy Award-winning actress teamed the cuffed denims with a grey top which included a white sheer back, revealing a lace camisole beneath.
She stepped out in white sneakers which rounded out the Mad Max: Fury Road star’s laid-back look.
Charlize shielded her emerald green eyes from the southern California rays in a pair of dark movie star shades.
The South African stunner portrays mother-of-three Marlo in the movie, and is gifted a night nanny named Tully – played by Mackenzie Davis – from her brother.
The pair forge a unique bond as the unpredictable and sometimes challenging Tully helps Marlo regain control of her life.
She also stars alongside Ron Livingston and Mark Duplass in the film which is due in theaters later this year.
Charlize, a known method actor, previously gained 30 pounds for the 2003 film Monster, in which she portrayed serial killer Aileen Wuornos.
Her dramatic transformation and stunning performance led her to win 17 awards for the role, including the 2004 Academy Award for Best Actress.
In April 2016, she told British GQ that beauty can work against an actress when it comes to landing strong roles.
‘Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that’s the end of the story,’ she said.
‘How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, f***ing, gown-wearing eight-foot model? When meaty roles come through, I’ve been in the room and pretty people get turned away first.’
