Charlize Theron Reveals the Snack She Stashed "Everywhere" and Binged Nonstop to Put on 50 Pounds

Charlize Theron Reveals the Snack She Stashed "Everywhere" and Binged Nonstop to Put on 50 Pounds

For her role in Tully, the Oscar winner cited this as her "drug of choice."

Charlize Theron plays a completely spent mom of three in her new film Tully — a role for which the Oscar winner now famously gained 50 pounds.

But how did she manage to put on such a sizable chunk of weight fast? Well, Theron has just revealed her main go-to food that she ate morning, noon, and night to help her pack on the pounds in a hurry. The actress said on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show that potato chips did the trick for her.

"I ate a lot of everything, but my drug of choice is potato chips," she told Ellen. "Everywhere. I had a bag in the car, a bag in the bathroom, a bag in the kitchen, a bag on the couch, a bag in my trailer. Everywhere I went, there was just a bag."

Watch the clip:

As amusing — and even delicious? — as that might sound, the diet Charlize required to put on weight fast had a serious side effect: depression

Theron earlier revealed to Entertainment Tonight, "I got hit in the face pretty hard with depression. For the first time in my life, I was eating so much processed foods and I drank way too much sugar. I was not that fun to be around on this film."
