Charlize Theron: 'I was too big to succeed as model'
Sunday 8, April 2012
Model and actress Charlize Theron has said that she was "too big" to succeed as a model.
Theron talked about her teenage modelling career during an interview with Vogue.
The Huffington Post reported Theron saying: "I was too tall, too big, too late for the supermodel look of the Eighties.
"Kate Moss and all the tiny, grungy girls had just become fashionable, and I didn't fit the bill."
The 'Young Adult' actress continued: "I'm sure there are women who never have to worry about what they eat. But I do.
"I exercise a lot, and I hike a lot. My mum and I hike at least three times a week."
The glamorous star also commented on her recent adoption of son Jackson, saying: "I've always been very honest in saying I wanted a family. I've always known I wanted a family.
"I don't think my mum could wait any more! [Jackson is] incredible, the greatest gift... the coolest kid ever."
Last week, it was announced that, Theron will receive a 'Distinguished Decade of Achievement in Film' award from the National Association of Theatre Owners.
