Charlize Theron did her part to help slow the spread of coronavirus as she masked up for a grocery run in Beverly Hills over the weekend. 

As the Oscar-winning actress, 45, exited a Bristol Farms in Beverly Hills, she could be seen pushing a cart with at least seven paper bags full of snacks for her household. 

While stocking up her pantries for the new year, the star kept a relatively low-profile in all black as she showed off her toned physique in a pair of skintight leggings.

She completed her sporty ensemble with a baseball cap with a palm tree design on the front over her wavy blonde hair, a dark t-shirt, gold necklace and athletic jacket. 

In addition to picking up some fresh produce, she appeared to purchase a box of Rice Krispies cereal for her young daughters Jackson, nine, and August, five. 

Her outing comes just weeks after detailing how 2020 has shaped her as a person amid the COVID-19 pandemic and a social sea change in the wake of the George Floyd killing.

'The first thing that comes to mind is how complacently I’ve been living in a society where systemic racism has been alive and well,' the beauty told Harper’s Bazaar Arabia in December.

She continued: 'It’s not just about the unnecessary amount of violence around police brutality, but the bigger picture of how we are all living in a system that is set up to keep [African and African-American] people in a place where, when we ask them to live to their full potential as individuals, and it’s really an impossible task; we’re setting them up for failure.'

The South African actress said that the year has given people the focus 'to take a real inventory, look at ourselves and [address] the things that we don’t think about; and 'asking ourselves bigger questions that go deeper.

'That’s really been at the forefront for me, just asking myself more questions and educating myself as much as I possibly can.' 

Theron, who adopted her children in 2012 and 2015, has focused much of her philanthropic attention on causes including HIV education, women's empowerment and stopping gender-based violence.

She told the outlet she follows her gut on which causes she focuses her time and attention to.

'There’s a human element and a reaction to things that you just naturally will have,' said Theron. 'We all respond to things differently.'

The United Nations Messenger of Peace continued: 'When something is really emotionally tough for you, you know that it matters to you - that’s something I’ve always listened to. I don’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t trying to use my voice for something that mattered to me.

'You realize the things that are important in your life, and you realize the things where it’s important for you to try to be part of a change; that’s how I gauge my involvement.'

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
