Charlize Theron as Aileen Wuornos – Monster (2003)
“When I was little I thought for sure that one day, I could be a big, big star.”
Charlize Theron had to put on more than 30 pounds to meet the body type of Aileen Wuornos, which lead her to a diet of “donuts and potato chips.” However, it wasn’t just that. She also had to learn tougher, more demanding physical posture as Wuornos has led a tough and brutal life.
Getting into the role also means using facial prosthetics as well as lots of makeup to make her skin look sun damaged and weathered.
