She may have been spotted showing off her slim bod in her yoga getup on August 5, but hopefully breathing is still an easy task during the relaxing workout due to her bad habit gone wrong: smoking two packs per day.
After Charlize Theron‘s engagement to Sean Penn fell through the roof, the actress has been leaning on the addiction and puffing away her blues. “Charlize is always talking about quitting,” an insider says. “In fact, it’s a rule that no one can smoke around her kids. But since she and Sean broke up, she’s been smoking like a chimney.”
It seems to be the only way she can deal with working with ex Sean again while they work on re-shooting scenes of the The Last Face right now.
“She’s coughing a lot and looks haggard,” the source says, “but no one’s giving her a hard time over it yet.”
Word to the wise, coughing up a lung in front of your ex may not win them back!
