She's been a serious dancer and serious actress, and now Charlize Theron reveals that serious model could have been on the list . . . if she was willing to lose some weight.
"I had the capability to be a bigger model than I was," says Charlize, who paid her way early on with photoshoots. "They were always telling me, 'Lose five pounds and you'll be a supermodel'. But I saw modeling like waitressing — it was a way to pay for another career, and that career was dance."
Unfortunately, or fortunately — depending on how you look at it — Charlize injured her knee when she was 19, causing both dance and modeling to take a backseat to her acting career.
