Theron notes that before starring in Atomic Blonde
, her only serious fight scene was during 2 Days in the Valley.
"It’s like dance, and I grew up taking ballet. I love discipline. I function really well within the parameters of discipline and knowing what to do," she says of the fight sequences in her upcoming action film. "But other than Teri Hatcher, I had only connected my fist with a girl’s face once in my entire life, so I had to do a lot of training for this film."
