Charlize Theron talks creating her “Atomic Blonde” role, doing her own stunts, and training for her fight scenes during Variety‘s cover shoot.

“The majority of the film physically is me ’cause David [Leitch] had said right from the beginning, ‘This is how I want to shoot everything, and I want to shoot it practical, and I want to shoot it real,'” Theron recalled. “We always knew that there wasn’t going to be face replacement, and there wasn’t going to be ‘I’m going to cut from a stunt double on your back.'”
