Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

HOL­LY­WOOD scorcher Char­l­ize Theron says film­ing her lat­est flick left her look­ing like Pop­eye!

The 39-year-old stars as Fu­riosa in new movie

And be­cause she’s the lead in an ac­tion flick she says she had to beef up to make her fight scenes more re­al­is­tic.

She said: “I don’t usu­ally work much on my up­per body be­cause I al­ready look like a man.

“I did do some work for this though, I did a lot of push-ups and weights.

“But I ne­glected the bot­tom part so much I could hardly walk up a flight of stairs.

“I looked a bit like Pop­eye – weird strong mus­cles up top and noth­ing down be­low.

“But I hate see­ing scrawny girls in ac­tion movies hit­ting guys four times their size and you’re sup­posed to be­lieve it.”
