Charlize Theron is nearly unrecognizable as she plays former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly in the new movie Bombshell.

But the transformation was no easy task according to the Academy Award-winning starlet.

The South African-born talent, 44, revealed how it took an entire set of prosthetics, including specially designed eyelid pieces, to make her look like the conservative pundit during a chat with The Reporter.

Charlize credited special effects makeup artist Kazu Hiro with helping her metamorphosis, even though he was originally wary of the look.

'It's really hard to get [Kazu] to do new stuff, but I did a lot of begging and he came on and designed eight [prosthetic] pieces for me,' she told THR.

The 'intricate' pieces even included two eyelid prosthetics, which 'basically covered [her] entire eyelids' but still allowed her to perform.

'It was very intricate work. Intricate work where you still need to be able to do what you need to do, like blink,' she said.
