Reality Check: Charlize Would Love a Miracle Pill

It's hard to hear some celebrities say that they've never seen the inside of a gym and they dine at fast food joints (or that they look so good from drinking shots of vinegar) because in most cases, it's just not true. It's always dumbfounded me why folks in the public eye can't just be honest about the extensive measures they go to to stay red carpet ready.

That is why I love it when a star speaks out and reminds us that yes, she may have a bit more resources than the average Joe, but she's human. In the July 21 issue of Life & Style Charlize Theron shares what would happen if she skipped the workouts. She said:

"I have to work out. I'm just like everybody else. I get fat if I don't work out. If you hear of some miracle pill, please let me know — I'd love to know about it."

Amen, sister. Amen.

Good to know that stars hate working out as much as most of the rest of us. I really hate it when celebs act like they're so great and have great bodies without trying. You KNOW that 95% of celebs work out a ton and don't eat a lot...that's what they get paid for, I suppose.

Yeah, it makes me feel a little bit better to know that she doesn't just *wake up* in the morning and look like that.

Charlize is very pretty! It's nice to know that she's just like the rest of us..It's actually a motivator in a way.
