Sadly, Charlize Theron won’t be playing Megyn Kelly in a drama about her getting roasted to dust by Jane Fonda. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Charlize Theron and director Jay Roach are getting together to work on a biopic about the sexual assault allegations against the late Roger Ailes.
Charlize will play Megyn in the currently-untitled Roger Ailes film, and will also serve as one of the film’s producer (Annapurna will be financing and producing). It will reportedly center around the multiple sexual assault allegations made against Roger Ailes back in 2016, beginning with the sexual harassment lawsuit filed by Gretchen Carlson. It’s rumored that Gretchen will likely be a character in this film. Also possible characters to be included are Greta Van Susteren, Rupert Murdoch, and Bill O’Reilly.
Megyn’s role in the film will most likely echo what was happening in real life at the time of the accusations. Megyn was at Fox News for over a decade when she was given her own show, The Kelly File. Megyn never came out and said it, but sources claimed she told investigators that Roger had allegedly sexually harassed her when she first started at Fox News a decade earlier. Her story was rumored to be the final nail in Roger’s coffin at Fox. Fox News allegedly tried to pressure Megyn into defending Roger when the allegations first came out, but Megyn refused.
I can totally see Charlize as Megyn Kelly, because Charlize fully commits to a role transformation. I just hope she prepares her gag reflex as much as she prepares squinting her eyes and working a smug smile. All that inevitable vomit-triggering talk about raw hamburger crotch meat is bound to do a number on her stomach.
The clock tower is about to ring noon. There is an audible gasp from inside St. George’s Chapel. In walks a stunning creature dressed in thousands of dollars worth of custom couture. Guests can be heard whispering, “I can’t believe it” and “So gorgeous.” And then as they approach the soft light from the prettiest stained-glass window, he says, “Yes, it’s me, Oscar-winning actor George Clooney. But really folks, it’s not my day, let’s keep the attention on the bride.” Then he winks to The Queen, and motions to Duchess Kate that he’ll catch her after the ceremony for an autograph. I’m sure that’s how it’s already playing out in George Clooney’s mind when he attends the royal wedding tomorrow.
There was a rumor that George and Amal Clooney would be on the guest list for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. A source tells People that rumor is true. The source says Meghan and Amal were introduced to a mutual friend and have been pals ever since Meghan moved from the U.S. to the U.K. in November. Apparently they share “many interests.”
Not only did George and Amal get a wedding invite, but they’re also part of the super-exclusive 200 people who get to party at the private evening. They only live 30 minutes away from Windsor.
George and Amal love a red carpet and cameras. So this means they’ll take their sweet time upon arrival and cause the whole thing to be delayed by at least 2 hours. Jesus, as if the lead-up to this wedding needs to be dragged out any longer!
According to Page Six, 77-year-old Jocelyn Wildenstein has filed for Chapter 11. Apparently Jocelyn’s cash situation is as unfortunate as her love life (I bet you thought I was going to say her face, didn’t you).
Yesterday, we learned that Hilary Duff has a neighbor in her NYC building named Dieter Addison, who she alleges lives his life like the lyrics to “Wake Up.” Except instead of something going on a Saturday night, it’s every night, and instead of a dance floor in London, Paris, or maybe Tokyo, the party is in Dieter’s living room. Hilary was pissed off. So she blasted Dieter on Instagram several times, using his full name, his picture, and a link to his Instagram page. And it got her into a little trouble with Instagram.
Apparently Jennifer Love Hewitt isn’t the only one having to explain their facial situation this week (oh that sounded gross, but it’s not like that). Except in Bella Thorne’s case, she’s demanding an apology instead of issuing one.
Hilary Duff is currently living the residential nightmare we all know as: The Shit Neighbor. Well, allegedly he’s a shit neighbor; that’s just according to Hilary, who finally had enough and moved their drama to Instagram so the whole world could suffer with her.
