Charlize Theron used to feel like 'loser' after watching rom-coms

Charlize Theron escaped what could have been a disgusting situation with a major movie producer when she was still a teenager.

Charlize Theron is now promoting her upcoming comedy Long Shot, including an appearance on the famous Howard Stern Show.

Theron has always been a vocal supporter of the #MeToo movement, and in October 2017, penned a lengthy note praising survivors shortly after Harvey Weinstein was first accused of sexual assault and harassment. "I had never been out for an audition", she said. "I don't even know how I got out of the house, but I left", she said. I said, 'It was 9 p.m. on a Saturday at your house, you were wearing pajamas.' I went down the list.

The agent told Theron the audition was at the producer's house at 9 p.m. on a Saturday.

While Charlize Theron is a well-known working actress with an impressive career, there was a time when she was still trying to break into the industry.

The Long Shot star said she repeatedly tried to read him script pages during their meeting but had her attempts brushed off, as the producer said he just wanted to "talk".

She's also representing the bob which, in the clever and creative hands of Theron's stylists, shows up the surprising versatility of such a short, sharp chop - from sleek, high-gloss, centre-parted up-dos (there's a teeny tiny ponytail at the back) to softer side-parts and even some gentle waves.

Those details being that Robbie Reyes is a motor vehicle enthusiast who ends up dying and is later revived to become Ghost Rider. Helstrom tells the story of Daimon and Ana Helstrom , who are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer.

She recalled: "He had a very healthy ego, he felt very good about himself". "There was some kind of muzak playing in the house". He sat very close to me, that was odd. That was unusual. The drinking bothered me.

The Oscar-winning actress recalled the early '90s incident on The Howard Stern Show and said she was only 18 or 19 and new to the acting world when it happened.

"Which, by the way, shows you how many women he did it to". But she went on to reveal that she got away from the situation, and that her feelings about the incident have evolved over time. "And it's insane, and girls talk about this, where you just go blank".

"I should've [turned around and left]". It would have ended really badly.

"I was so angry with myself that I didn't say something".

"I think it's hard for me to do that kind of fantasy love stuff". It made me so angry.

Favouring edgy, often outside-the-box (by Hollywood standards) tops and gowns with dramatic high necklines and tactile detailing (from lace and embroidery to studs and beading) and multiple layers of earrings, the 43-year-old then keeps the whole look in balance with sleek, simple (but perfectly polished) hair and classic makeup. One can only hope that the world will be a safer place, as sexual harassment is certainly not a problem exclusive to showbusiness.
