The 'Mad Max: Fury Road' actress says she 'did a lot of begging' to get makeup guru to help her transform into the former Fox News anchor for her latest movie.

AceShowbiz - Charlize Theron begged veteran makeup guru Kazuhiro Tsuji to come out of semi-retirement and transform her into former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly for her new film.

The Oscar winner is wowing film fans with her Kelly look in the film "Bombshell" and she insists she owes everything to Kazuhiro.

"It's really hard to get him to do new stuff," she told The Hollywood Reporter, "but I did a lot of begging and he came on and designed eight (prosthetic) pieces for me."

"Two of them basically covered my entire eyelids. It was very intricate work. Intricate work where you still need to be able to do what you need to do, like blink."

The film revolves around the female Fox News employees who exposed CEO Roger Ailes' sexual harassment.

Kazuhiro also came out of retirement to transform Leonardo DiCaprio for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" and Gary Oldman for "Darkest Hour".
