Charlize Theron shows slender frame in ‘Knockout’ tank top

She has lost 35lbs since she finished filming the movie Tully.

And on Tuesday morning in Los Angeles, Charlize Theron showed just how she did it: with grueling workout sessions. 

The 42-year-old Academy Award-winning actress showed off her slender frame in short shorts and a tank top emblazoned with the word ‘knockout’ across the front in big bold lettering as she sweated it out with a personal trainer.

In July she told Variety that losing the weight now was harder than when she was in her twenties.

That was when she added 40lbs for the 2003 film Monster, which won her an Academy Award.

‘It was brutal in every sense,’ she said. ‘This time around, I really felt it in my health. The sugar put me in a massive depression. I was sick. I couldn’t lose the weight. I called my doctor and I said, “I think I’m dying!” And he’s like, “No, you’re 41. Calm down.”‘

On Tuesday Charlize was in high spirits as she walked down the hill to warm up her body by the curb for the outdoor workout.

The Fate Of The Furious star walked confidently wearing a graphic tank top with the word ‘knockout’ proudly splashed across her chest.

Showing off the fruits of her labor, the Devil’s Advocate actress sported blue Under Armour running shorts with a white fabric paneling along the side.

Katie Holmes Furious Over Jamie Foxx, Charlize Theron Flirting?

Is Katie Holmes furious about Jamie Foxx and Charlize Theron allegedly flirting at last month’s Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor boxing match? One of the news tabloids claims Holmes is jealous of the supposed PDA at the sporting event, but Gossip Cop has the truth.

Foxx and Theron sat together at the Mayweather-McGregor fight in Las Vegas, prompting In Touch to insist Holmes is upset about their interaction. A supposed “eyewitness” at the arena tells the magazine, “Jamie was all over Charlize in front of thousands of people. They were giggling and flirting all night. At one point, Jamie gave Charlize a massage, rubbing her back and shoulders.” The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “Charlize liked it so much that she actually pulled her hair up so he could rub her neck.”

The seemingly phony source goes on to say Holmes “was angry and really hurt” when she heard about the actor’s alleged dalliance with Theron, adding, “Katie is very much in love with Jamie and has always wanted to be exclusive with him. But he treats her like a booty call.” The “insider” continues, “This is the ultimate insult for Katie. Jamie needs to be more respectful or he will lose her for good.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Holmes, who exclusively assures us she wasn’t jealous of Foxx and Theron sitting together at the boxing match. A separate insider further tells us Foxx and Theron have been friends for years and weren’t getting touchy-feely during the fight. This is simply a non-story designed to create a nonexistent love triangle.

Unfortunately, In Touch has repeatedly published phony stories regarding the nature of Foxx and Holmes’ relationship, so this latest fabrication isn’t surprising. Gossip Cop previously busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Foxx was renting out Dinseyland for a date night with the actress. We also previously called out the publication for wrongly reporting Holmes and Foxx were getting secretly married. This latest article throwing Theron into the mix is equally bogus.

Katie Holmes is furious over Jamie Foxx and Charlize Theron flirting.

Charlize Theron, Javier Bardem in ‘The Last Face’

Politics, the hunger for power, and corrupt government officials scrambling for mineral-rich territories spawned civil war in Africa and created conflict zones where the scale of destruction is unimaginable. 

Hundreds and thousands of people have been slaughtered in military coups or emotionally destroyed through rape and gender-based violence or have been victims of unspeakable human rights violations. 

The civilians who managed to survive the decimation were forced to flee to safety from rebels sowing terror in their regions, making up more than nine million refugees and internally displaced people without resources to form a new life. It is a suffering that knows no end. 

American actress Charlize Theron in a steamy scene with Spanish actor Javier Bardem in drama flick directed by Sean Penn

The Last Face is brought to the screen by a group of filmmakers and actors who coincidentally all happen to be humanitarians in their own right and unquestionably this resonance was their motivation to work with the very difficult material.

The film is about the love affair between Dr. Wren Petersen (Charlize Theron), director of an international aid organization, and Dr. Miguel Leon (Javier Bardem), a relief-aid doctor. 

Set against war-torn Liberia, Miguel and Wren must find a way to keep their relationship alive in extraordinarily difficult conditions battling their mutual passion for the value of life matched by the intensity of their diametrically opposed opinions on how best to solve the conflict that surrounds them.  

Directed by two-time Academy Award® winner Sean Penn, The Last Face also stars Jared Harris, and celebrated French actors Jean Reno and Adèle Exarchopoulos.

An activist himself and champion of refugees, Javier Bardem co-produced and starred in Sons of the Clouds: The Last Colony, a film documenting how the colonization of the Western Sahara has left nearly 200,000 people living in refugee camps.

The development process of getting the picture off the ground was just 13 months. Bardem, already on board, was speaking about actors to play opposite him in the role of Wren. First and foremost on the list happened to be Charlize Theron, who apart from being an extraordinary actor is also a humanitarian who runs her own NGO that helps AIDS orphans in South Africa. She was a perfect contrast, both physically and emotionally to Javier.

The Last Face opens exclusively in Ayala Malls Cinemas on Sept. 13.

Not present during her trip to the preschool was the star’s eldest son, Jackson, six. 

The Atomic Blonde star is a single parent to both her children, whom she adopted in 2012 and 2015. 

In an April interview with Ellen,  the star spoke of her kids, and credits ‘the incredible village’ it takes to raise them.

‘I’m a single mom and I have an incredible village that helps me raise these two beautiful kids,’ she began. 

‘In the mornings I have them alone and they kind of work against each other sometimes. One kind of decides to freak out and then both decides to freak out, I don’t know why they decide to do that. You think they’d stand there and be considerate like, “well that one is freaking out right now, I’m not gonna freak out.” They don’t do that.’

‘I’m an only child so I didn’t grow up with siblings and so I had no idea the beauty that siblings have with each other. Like it really is one of the most incredible things I’ve ever witnessed. To see how much they love each other and to see how much they’re excited to see each other. They’re so in love with each other, it’s really beautiful.’ 

Charlize can next be seen in three films, Gringo, Flarsky and Tully, out next year.

Gal Gadot Was Almost Cast In an Iconic Charlize Theron Role

Actresses Gal Gadot and Charlize Theron have a lot in common. They’re both beauties (Theron, a former model; Gadot, a former beauty queen) who can hold their own with the tough boys on screen. They both owe a lot to director Patty Jenkins (who was behind both Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Theron’s Monster). They both, incidentally, were on the cover of W this year.

So maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise that sometimes Hollywood has considered them both for the same roles. In fact, as Gadot recently revealed, she was the second choice for a role that ended up going to Theron instead.

While appearing on The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, Gadot recounted how close she came to landing various roles before finally landing her breakthrough, star-making gig in Wonder Woman.

“I had so many almosts for big, great things, but I was never a big enough name,” Gadot said. “It was always me and the big name.”

“I was runner-up for Mad Max with Charlize,” she further revealed.

Theron, of course, played Imperator Furiosa, the rogue soldier on a mission, in Mad Max: Fury Road. Theron’s performance was singled out as one of the highlights in a movie that was already quite well-received critically. Though, Gadot doesn’t have any misgiving about the situation. It’s just how Hollywood works.

“Charlize, I love,” she added. “It’s funny, because we have Patty Jenkins in common. I have a few things [in common] with her.”

Indeed, Theron also claimed this year that Jenkins did approach her about taking a role in Wonder Woman, but she had to decline due to previous filming commitments.

Besides the Jenkins connection, they both have gotten awards buzz for roles in action films, a rarity. You’ll still find more than a few film fans who swear that Theron should have received nominations for her work as Furiosa (indeed, she was nominated and won a number of film critic circles’ awards), and Gadot is considered a dark horse in this year’s awards races.

They also have both had roles in The Fast and The Furious series. Gadot, pre-Wonder Woman, played the supporting role of Gisele in four of the film’s series. Theron played a villain in the most recent film.

It may not be the last time the pair end up vying for the same or similar roles, but here’s hoping the duo winds up on screen together eventually. Perhaps Theron could make time for a role in Wonder Woman 2?
