Charlize Theron Says That After Twenty-Five Years In The Business, She’s Never Been As Famous As Kim Kardashian
While talking to Harper’s Bazaar about all sorts of things (like how she turned down a relationship during the pandemic because she’s out of practice and how the financial backers of Monster wanted it to be a “hot lesbian movie“), Oscar-winner Charlize Theron got into fame. One of the things she realizes is even after twenty-five years in the business she still hasn’t reached the same level of fame that Kim Kardashian has, which is a fact she has finally learned to accept. Oh, Charlize, if that’s the kind of cheap, easy fame you want, all you have to do is say Kris Jenner’s name three times in a bathroom mirror, and she’ll appear with a contract for you to sign. Yes, you’ll sign over every bit of your soul, but you’ll get that Kardashian level of fame!
John Leguizamo Says That Steven Seagal Was On An On-Set Bully Who Got Put In A Chokehold By A Stuntman
Get ready to clutch your pearls in disbelief over some shocking vintage news. Steven Seagal, beloved Russian martial artist and dyed goatee aficionado, is a bully! I know. We’re all shocked. Who knew that someone who shills for Bitcoin and is an alleged super creep could be unpleasant to work with! This is according to John Leguizamo who once worked with Seagal in 1996 and recently revealed that Steven was not a fun co-worker. Bullies in Hollywood? Say it isn’t so!
There have been so many stories and rumors about the filming of 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road, and many of them are about how Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy hated each other so much, Ryan Murphy should be buying the rights to their story for the next season of FX’s Feud. Their Mad Max co-star Zoë Kravitz has previously suggested that their feud could have been due to being out in the desert for so long and everyone getting on each other’s nerves a little too much. And Charlize herself has simply stated that they just “struggled” with each other.
A new book by Kyle Buchanan called Mad Max: Fury Road, titled Blood, Sweat & Chrome: The Wild and True Story of Mad Max: Fury Road gets into the feud. This is the book where we learned about Tom Hardy going a little too hard during his audition and spitting in Armie Hammer’s face. But it’s where we also learn why Charlize and Tom were at each other’s throats.
In 2015, Charlize Theron wisely ended her one-year relationship with Sean Penn by probably ghosting him. A full five years later, and she’s yet to date again. Damn, Sean turned her off romance for life! Charlize revealed her dating drought on Drew Barrymore’s new daytime talk show. A few months ago she told Howard Stern that her relationship with Sean was exclusive, but she never wanted to marry him. In fact, she never wants to marry anybody. She told Drew that she’s happy with her life and her family, and she hasn’t dated anybody in five years. Girl’s girl Drew was all, “OMG ME TOO!”
Last month, the director of 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road, George Miller, confirmed that Charlize Theron will not get to reprise her role as one-armed badass Furiosa in the upcoming prequel. Alas, the movie is set when the character is in her twenties, and while George initially considered technologically de-aging 44-year-old (I know, ancient) Charlize, he thought the effects in The Irishman were a little too “uncanny valley” for his liking. I still say Scorsese shoulda saved himself millions by simply casting Joey from The Circle as a young DeNiro. But hey, I ain’t the auteur.
Charlize doesn’t hold George’s decision against him, but she admits she’s heartbroken she won’t be playing the role again. Continue reading
Charlize Theron was Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show to promote her new Netflix movie, The Old Guard, and since she was talking to Howard, the conversation led to her talking beautiful shit. Charlize read accused sexual assaulter Steven Seagal to filth and basically said that things with Sean Penn weren’t that serious and she was never planning to make him her husband. Charlize may have been dickmatized but she wasn’t THAT dickmatized.
