Charlize Theron, apart from her fantastic acting chops, is known for the striking transformations that she has gone through for multiple roles over the years. Be it in Monster, or Mad Max: Fury Road and now in Bombshell, Theron has certainly made a resume out of it that is incredible. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she opened up on her uncanny transformation and her last-minute struggle for financing and the debate if the #MeToo movement has gone too far.
On how they struggled to find financing and her first studio, Annapurna backing out, she said, "I panicked. That's the first thing I did. It was a very ambitious movie for Denver and Delilah. We only sent the script out to our top choices, and that was who ended up making the movie with us, which is such a freaking luxury to have, but what that does is that when you get people with the level of Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie, you're tied to a lot of people's schedules. When our financing fell through, our greatest fear, it wasn't that we wouldn't get financing again — it was that if we pushed just one week, the whole movie would have fallen apart because of scheduling."
On her physical transformation into Megyn Kelly, she said, "We worked with the greatest [special effects makeup artist], Kazu Hiro. It's really hard to get him to do new stuff. But I did a lot of begging and he came on and designed eight [prosthetic] pieces for me. Two of them basically covered my entire eyelids. It was very intricate work. Intricate work where you still need to be able to do what you need to do, like a blink."
