Charlize Theron has always wanted to adopt

Left Charlize Theron and Asher Miles Fallica in

This is a Diablo Cody script, after all. She had just delivered her third child, and thought she would adeptly juggle the demands of her work life and family life, like she had before.

"I was supposed to be writing this big-budget, four-quadrant Hollywood movie, and I was failing at it". "I'd never experienced anything like that". It would be hard for me to be like, "oh, I'll just pretend". "I knew it was insane, and I knew that it would end eventually". "I find that sometimes it's a really good acting teacher, just observing people".

Cody's postpartum roller coaster is familiar territory to many women.

Being a mom is exhausting. She's perfectly imperfect as Marlo, the overwhelmed mom who is truly at the end of her rope.

She said: "My kids make me laugh like nobody's business".

Actress Charlize Theron teamed up with director Jason Reitman for their new film "Tully" about the struggles of motherhood. She arrives just as Marlo (Charlize Theron), the mother of two plus an unplanned-for newborn, is reaching the limits of exhaustion. When Marlo's husband drives her to the hospital to give birth, Reitman places the camera in the backseat; we mostly see the rain sloshing across the windshield on what is meant to be a joyful occasion.

Not many films address motherhood with as much irreverence and insight as "Tully".

The "Atomic Blonde" star is a doting mother and doesn't even mind the sleepless nights she's going through at the moment. Ron (Livingston) showed up every single day so invested in the whole thing.

Theron is no stranger to the art of physical transformation. She's gained a little hope, but reality is still crushing.

Two years later, "Juno" was in theaters and soon after that Cody was on stage holding an Oscar thanks to her witty dialogue and a fresh storytelling approach. It turns out Tully's life isn't as enviable as Marlo imagined, and after the pair galavant through Brooklyn so the latter can reclaim her youth, she awakens with a broader lease on life. I'm guessing the higher the first number, the lower the second. "Can we shoot this after the summer?'" "We're like, 'Why are you still carrying that baby weight?'" Still, all the sugar and processed food she ate threw her for a loop psychologically. I was so dark.

"I had more injuries on this than I ever did on 'Mad Max, '" she joked. But then you wrap and go home, and I have small kids to take care of. In high school, Mavis was the queen bee ― but what happens to the person who peaked at 17? Cody said that was intentional, a reaction to her experience raising children in Los Angeles, where it's often hard to get a diagnosis from a school or a psychologist about the behaviors of your unique child.

Packing on the pounds for a movie role isn't almost as enjoyable as you would think. It can be really isolating and scary. "If you're a dad you REALLY need to see this movie", Martinez said. But the results have proven to be much larger than that.

The 20-something Tully is a free spirit - perky, self-confident and seemingly too good to be true. And I'm like well it might be different than what you think.
