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.
