When she was a fresher in the acting industry, she had to go through an ordeal when she had to endure a male producer’s s-xual advancements. It was something she felt bad about for a long time until she finally had her revenge.

Back in a 2019 episode of The Howard Stern Show, Charlize Theron shared about auditioning for the first time in Hollywood at a famous producer’s house. Recalling that she had never been to any audition before then, she shared,

“I had just turned 19, I might have still been 18. I had never been out for an audition.” 

Her agent sent her off to that producer’s house at the time. He opened the door in his pajamas. Sharing about his personality, she stated,

“He had a very healthy ego, he felt very good about himself.”

The Fast X actress continued,


“There was some kind of muzak playing in the house. He sat very close to me. That was strange. The drinking bothered me. I was like, ‘This doesn’t feel right.’”

At one point in then-so called audition, “he put his hand on my knee.” She opened up about going “blank” at the time as she didn’t know how to react.

“I don’t even know how I got out of the house but I was driving my Ford Fiesta and I was so angry with myself that I didn’t say something.”

She felt furious about what happened back then as she didn’t stand up for herself at the time. But the fury was finally put to rest when she encountered him years later.

The Old Guard actress continued to share that she eventually spoke to him after 8 years when she cemented herself at a great place in the industry. She confronted the “big deal” producer who had no recollection of their bizarre encounter.

“I went (to see him) purely just to have my moment, where he said: ‘Nice to meet you’ and I said: ‘No, we’ve met before.’ He had no recollection of it and his producing partner was standing right next to him.”

Despite being firm on pretending to have no memories of meeting her, she recalled that he was “embarrassed” which was enough for a reason that she had her revenge. While she didn’t expose his name, she remained steadfast in the statement that he was a big deal even when the interview premiered. She can be seen reprising her Cipher role in the Fast X film which is running in theatres now.
