Charlize Theron Transforms Into Megyn Kelly the Same Day the Embattled Host’s Show Is Canceled

In the wake of Megyn Kelly’s canceled Today show, Charlize Theron is transforming into her doppelganger on the set of her new Roger Ailes film.

The Oscar-winning actress, 43, looked incredibly similar to Kelly, 47, in a white T-shirt, jeans and the news anchor’s signature blonde, wavy locks, on the same day sources told PEOPLE Megyn Kelly Today was canceled by NBC after the host’s controversial blackface comments.

Theron was all smiles as she was photographed on Thursday while on the Los Angeles set. Later in the day, she changed into a more conservative look — a black dress with her blonde hair in a low bun to mimic one of Kelly’s looks during the run of her former Fox News show.

The untitled film will center on the women working at Fox News and how they took on Roger Ailes and the toxic male culture he presided over at the network, according to IMDb.

Theron will star alongside Margot Robbie, Alice Eve, Nicole Kidman, Kate McKinnon, John Lithgow and Allison Janney.

NBC confirmed Kelly’s 9 a.m. Today show hour was canceled on Friday in a statement.

Megyn Kelly Today is not returning. Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other Today co-anchors,” an NBC spokesperson told PEOPLE.

While Kelly’s show is officially done, her future at the network remains unclear. Following NBC’s announcement about the show, Kelly’s attorney told Variety in a statement: “Megyn remains an employee of NBC News and discussions about next steps are continuing.”

Multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE on Thursday that Kelly’s hour had been canceled.

“They’re contacting the staff and reassigning everyone today. Everyone’s being told that they still have a home here, but it won’t be on Megyn’s show,” one source said. “They haven’t made an official announcement about the show, but everyone knows what it means when they’re being moved somewhere else. The show is clearly over.”

Kelly did not appear live on air Thursday or Friday morning, with NBC announcing the rest of this week’s broadcasts had been replaced with pre-taped episodes.

“Given the circumstances, Megyn Kelly Today will be on tape the rest of the week,” an NBC spokesperson previously confirmed to PEOPLE.

Kelly, 47, has since apologized for her comments twice — first in an internal email to colleagues and then on-air as she held back tears.

The outcry on social media was swift following the segment. On Wednesday, Kelly’s NBC colleagues condemned her harshly on-airCraig Melvin called her remarks “indefensible” as well as “ignorant and racist,” and Al Roker insisted she “owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country.”

Lady Gaga, Vanessa Hudgens, and All The Sexiest Stars Sharing The Elle ‘Women In Hollywood’ Red Carpet

Guys, did you know that there are Women in Hollywood? Apparently it’s true, and some of the hottest women in Hollywood were walking the red carpet for Elle’s Women in Hollywood event. What a fortuitous set of circumstances to bring such an event together.

Keira Knightley was there, looking like she just got out of the shower. Vanessa Hudgens was also there, rocking a pair of overalls that said, “I’m a farmer, but I have boobs too.” The busty Alice Eve kept her best assets hidden from view in a classic little black dress.

Charlize Theron was rocking a hot butch haircut and some major league cleavage in an androgynous little number. Chloe Grace Moretz is another women in Hollywood, making her a prime candidate for such an event. Kate Beckinsale as well in a beige and black dress that looks good enough to eat.

I’m also a big fan of Sara Sampaio’s outfit. That, to me, says I too am a Woman in Hollywood. So is Lady Gaga—wearing one of David Byrne’s old giant Talking Heads suits—and all the other sexy Women in Hollywood that populate this list. They are Women, Hear them walk the red carpet!

Charlize Theron Got Depressed After Gaining 50 Pounds for ‘Tully’

Charlize Theron is dedicated to her craft. She became ugly for the 2003 film Monster. And in 2018, she became fat for Tully.

Theron plays Marlo, a mother of three who is given a nanny. She put on 50 pounds for the film in order to “feel what this woman felt.” Theron described her weight gain process to Entertainment Tonight:

“The first three weeks are always fun because you’re just like a kid in a candy store. So it was fun to go and have breakfast at In-N-Out and have two milkshakes,” she explained. “And then after three weeks, it’s not fun anymore. Like, all of a sudden you’re just done eating that amount and then it becomes a job. I remember having to set my alarm in the middle of the night in order to just maintain [the weight].

“You know, it was a huge surprise to me. I got hit in the face pretty hard with depression. Yeah, for the first time in my life I was eating so much processed foods and I drank way too much sugar. I was not that fun to be around on this film.”

Thinking about Fat Charlize Theron makes me depressed. She got so big that her two kids thought she was pregnant.

While putting on weight is easy, losing that weight is much tougher. Anyone can sit on the couch and eat cookies all day. Getting off the couch is a pain in the ass.

“There’s nothing fun about that. It took about a year and a half. It was a long journey, very long journey,”

Hopefully Hollywood doesn’t have any more stupid ideas like “make Charlize Theron fat” anytime soon.

Tully is set to hit theaters on May 4.

Charlize Theron Loves Weed

Charlize Theron is pretty awesome, and she played one of the most memorable guest stars on Arrested Development, one of my favorite TV shows of all-time. So I was pleasantly surprised to hear she told E! that she was also a giant pothead.

“I was a wake-and-baker for most of my life,” she said of her past.

“Do you remember your first time?” E!’s Sibley Scoles asked.

“Yeah, I was older. I didn’t really mess around with anything until I was much older,” Theron said. “But I really appreciated marijuana way more than alcohol or anything else. My chemistry was really good with it when I was younger and then it just changed one day. Like, in my early thirties I just became boring on it and I would just stand in front of my fridge, so that’s no good.”

Oh, I have been there, Charlize. I remember multiple occasions where my roommate and I would make some big plans for the evening, smoke up, and then fall asleep after eating everything in the house.

So Theron doesn’t smoke weed anymore, but she’s thinking about trying it again.

“I’m open to retrying it again because now there’s all these different strains and you can be specific with it,” she said. “And I’m actually really interested because I have really bad insomnia, and I’d much rather get off sleeping pills and figure out a strain that helps me sleep better. So when I have a moment, I’m actually doing that with my mom. My mom has really bad sleep too.”

If I were an enterprising dispensary owner, I would get to work on a strain of indica specifically for falling asleep and I’d call it “MRF”. It’s a perfect marketing opportunity. I’m also glad that kids have role models telling them it’s okay to smoke pot in the face of uncool people like Jeff Sessions and The Girl Scouts trying to kill our buzz.

Harvey Weinstein Told Women That Charlize Theron and Renee Zellweger Performed Sexual Favors For Him

You want your movie career to be as big as the careers of Charlize Theron and Renée Zellweger? All you have to do is offer up sexual favors to Harvey Weinstein, just like they did.

Melissa Sagemiller claims that in 2000, Weinstein wanted her to “kiss and massage” him. When she refused, he told her that Zellweger and Theron would perform “sexual favors,” implying that’s how they achieved their current status.

He then asked her, “Don’t you want your career to be more than just this little teen film?” Sagemiller was filming Get Over It. While Kirsten Dunst, Mila Kunis, and Zoe Saldana went on to have big careers after the film, this is the first I’ve heard of Sagemiller.

Sagemiller says that she did kiss Weinstein, but that was it. A kiss doesn’t get you very far in Hollywood, it would seem.

In light of their names being brought up, Theron and Zellweger both responded.

Theron posted the following message on Instagram:

By saying she didn’t have “an experience like this with Harvey Weinstein” she’s pretty much denying that she ever gave him a sexual favor in return for a movie role.

Zellweger’s rep said, “If Harvey said that, he’s full of shit.”

The timeline implies that Theron performed these sexual favors in order to land her role on Reindeer Games, which was produced by Weinstein. Zellweger had pre-2000 ties to Weinstein on A Price Above Rubies.

I doubt Sagemiller would throw Theron and Zellweger under the bus like that, bringing their names up for no reason, so I’m going to assume that Harvey said it as a way to coax women into performing sexual favors for him. And based on dozens of women accusing him of sexual harassment/assault, it sounds like it worked.

The real question is. How come Weinstein didn’t just use Ben Affleck’s name?

Charlize Theron Kicks Ass and Cups Tits

Charlize Theron is an atomic blonde in the upcoming movie Atomic Blonde. She plays a kick-ass spy and tosses around guys. Charlize Theron kicking ass? Sold.

But kicking ass means you’re likely to get your ass kicked. And Theron took a couple chips to the teeth while filming the movie. During a Q&A at SXSW to promote the movie, Theron has this to say according to Variety:

“My teeth are in bad shape,” Theron said. “I’m actually still undergoing surgery. It’s really crazy. When I trained, I cracked two teeth in the back of my mouth, clenching while fighting, because apparently my arm strength wasn’t strong enough.” She had to complete an operation before the shoot started. “And I’m still f—ing dealing with it,” she sighed.

Oh nevermind, she didn’t get her ass kicked. She was trying too hard to kick ass that she hurt herself. That’s commitment.

Despite being Charlize Theron, even she had doubts that should cool pull off this role.

“I said, ‘This is never going to work!’ I look like Big Bird,” Theron recalled. “I’m cupping small titties, and I don’t know what I’m doing.”

Big Bird cups small titties?

Here’s the real news from the Q&A. David Leitch, who directed the film, also directed John Wick. And, get this, Keanu Reeves and Theron trained at the same gym while preparing for the roles. THUS…..

When a member of the audience asked if there could be a crossover movie, Leitch, who directed both, responded gamily: “‘Atomic Wick’? Yes.”

Katherine Heigl wasn't exactly a big fan of her 2007 film, Knocked Up. She called it "a little sexist. It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys. It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it, on some days."

3. Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey regretted the 2010 film Kick-Ass because of the violence. Before the release of the film, he tweeted "I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence."

Mom-to-be Emily Blunt was the center of attention at a shower hosted by The Huntsman: Winter’s War costar and close pal Charlize Theron on Sunday.

The British actress, who is expecting her second child with husband John Krasinski, beamed in a patterned blue maxi dress while hostess Theron, 40, was chic in a black ensemble.


Instagram

Guests included celebrity trainer AJ Johnson, Jenn StreicherLaini Reeves and Theron’s mother Gerda Martiz. Johnson shared a couple of photos from the event on Instagram writing, “An afternoon of love, laughs and friendship celebrating a special piece of my [heart] #EmilyBlunt with hostess with the mostess @charlizeafrica #CharlizeTheron.”

Blunt, 33, and Krasinski, 36, have yet to reveal the sex of their new baby. In January, the actress’s rep confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple were expecting their second child.

The actors tied the knot in July 2010 and are already parents to 2-year-old daughter Hazel.

Charlize Theron: My Kids’ Sibling Relationship Is ‘Sacred and Beautiful’

Charlize Theron‘s children are a match made in heaven.

While at the premiere for her new film The Huntsman: Winter’s War on Monday night, Theron couldn’t help but speak about the affection between her infant daughter, August, and her 4-year-old son, Jackson — and says it’s “a love that is unbelievable to watch.”

While Theron emphasized that she “was an only child,” she told EXTRA watching her children bond makes her feel like “I’m watching something so sacred and beautiful.”

She adds, “He walks into a room and he doesn’t even look at her and she just lights up. I’m in front of her going crazy trying to get a reaction… It’s so beautiful.”

And the closeness between her children makes her in no rush to add another into the mix.

“Both of my hands are really full right now,” Theron, 40, told Entertainment Tonight. “My son is like, ‘Let’s get a cat,’ and I’m like, ‘No! No! No more things that need to be fed! We’re slowing down.'”

It was just last July that the actress adopted August — but, as all moms would agree, they grow up so fast.

“She’s great, she’s growing like a weed,” Theron told EXTRA. “It’s insane — it’s unbelievable how quickly they become little people. I’m trying to hang on to my little baby, but she’s just fighting right through that like, ‘I’m ready to go.'”

And Jackson and August sure never stray far from the actress’ mind. On Sunday night at the MTV Movie Awards, Theron accepted her award her best female performance for her role as Imperator Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road — and she told the audience during her heartwarming speech that she was accepting the award “on behalf of my own Furiosa, my daughter.”

“There’s not one moment where I don’t realize how unbelievably lucky I have it,” Theron said. “They’re little gems, they really are. They’re amazing.”

She added of Jackson: “There was no way I couldn’t thank my son because it was a tough movie for me to make. And he was in the trailer every single day.”

4 Celebrities Who Have Overcome Abuse

With all of the benefits celebrities seem to enjoy, it can be hard to remember they are still human; and like other humans, they still suffer with some of the same struggles, including insecurities stemming from abuse. While Ke$ha is currently embroiled in her legal battles against producer, Dr. Luke, there are plenty of other celebrities who have already overcome abuse and gone on to lead incredible lives.

Marilyn Monroe

Ahead of her time in more ways than one, Monroe was one of the first people to speak openly about her past abuses. Born in the charity ward of Los Angeles’ general hospital, Marilyn became a longtime tenant of the foster system. With frequent abuse from various men in her life, it may be surprising that Monroe became such a sex symbol; but her closed-off emotions and physical relations with her three husbands, demonstrate the long-term harm the abuse had on her life and relationships.

Rihanna

In what was, arguably, the most publicized domestic violence case of celebrities, Rihanna found herself brutally beaten by then-boyfriend, rapper Chris Brown. With a swollen and bruised face following the incident, it is no surprise she chose to stay out of the limelight for a short time. Rihanna has since returned to the music industry and has found great success in spite of this abuse.

Charlize Theron

Before you start complaining about your home life, take a gander at the growing up Charlize Theron had to do. With a violently, alcoholic father, Theron’s home life was a constant battle of threats and violence. He threatened on more than one occasion to kill the entire family while intoxicated. When the breaking point arrived, he came home intoxicated and aggressive and Theron’s mother killed him out of self-defense.

Following this tragedy in her youth, Theron was also raped in her home country of South Africa. Although the South African government tried to cover up this incident, Theron worked hard to gain justice for herself. Perhaps this troubled past made romantic relationships difficult for Theron, as neither of her partnerships have been lasting, but she does have two beautiful children that bring hope to her life.

Drew Barrymore

Unfortunately, in many situations, abuse can only open the door for more abuse and a broken cycle of expectations and tolerance. For Drew Barrymore, the abuse and neglect she received from her father as a child put her in a dangerous position for other introductions. She experienced drugs, sex and alcohol at a young age, but has since risen above the challenge. In spite of her father’s actions and mistakes against her, she has become very successful in the film industry.

So, what's the gender and name of the new addition? According to an insider, Theron is the proud new mama of a baby girl named August! So gorgeous!

Charlize Theron has adopted a second child, a daughter named August.

The actress worked with an adoption agency and gained custody of the baby, an African-American girl born in the United States, in July, PEOPLE has confirmed. The news was first reported by TMZ.

Theron adopted her older child, now 3½-year-old son Jackson, in 2012.

As the Mad Max: Fury Road star told Ryan Seacrest in March of that year, “It’s been amazing, the amount of emails and congratulations. Everyone’s just been so lovely — it’s been really nice.”

That spring, Theron told British Vogue, “I’ve always been very honest in saying I wanted a family. I’ve always known I wanted a family.”

“[I hope] to be like my mom. Fair, tough, and supportive,” she continued. “Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence.”

Charlize Theron to President Obama: Let’s Go to a Strip Club!

Charlize Theron is originally from South Africa, so we can forgive her for getting her presidents mixed up.

Apparently, during a recent conversation with President Obama, Charlize momentarily thought she was speaking with Bill Clinton, because she made him an offer that Hillary's hubby could never refuse.

While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, Charlize shared a painfully awkward/hilarious story in which she confessed to inviting Obama to a strip club.

Sadly, the Prez turned her down, but we like to think Charlize then proceeded to the Spearmint Rhino by herself with a fistful of G-string dollars.

Charlize was on the show to promote her new film Dark Places, and sadly, she was not asked about her breakup with Sean Penn.

We're guessing that trend will continue throughout the press tour, particularly since sources say Charlize dumped Sean in brutal fashion.

Charlize Theron and Sean Penn: It’s Over!

After a year-a-and-half of dating, Charlize Theron Sean Penn have officially called it quits.

There were rumors of turmoil (caused mainly by Penn's famously violent temper) from day one, but for 18 months, the couple defied their critics and affirmed their commitment to one another in numerous interviews.

Charlize Theron and Sean Penn

In December of last year, Penn and Theron got engaged. Shortly thereafter, rumors of Penn cheating on Theron (with her stunt double, no less) began to circulate online.

There's no word as to whether or not Penn's alleged infidelity played a role in the breakup, but Us Weekly confirms that Theron was the one to end the relationship.

In a recent interview with Esquire, Penn gushed about Theron and spoke openly about his desire to take their relationship to the next level:

"You say I've been married twice before, but I’ve been married under circumstances where I was less informed than I am today," Penn speculated of his future with Theron. "So I wouldn’t even consider it a third marriage, I’d consider it a first marriage on its own terms

Well, apparently he'll have to wait a little longer to experience his third first marriage.

Kind of a shame - after seeing Charlize make short work of post-apocalyptic psychos in Mad Max: Fury Road, we were beginning to think someone might actually be up to the task of staying married to Sean Penn.

Charlize Theron in ‘Captain Marvel’? A Random Rationalizing Source Thinks So!

Ah, OK! magazine. Your source to unfounded celebrity news and entertainment at the dentist.

A recent rumor started by an OK! source is circulating, naming Charlize Theron to play Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel. I assume they use the similar chain-smoking, bozo-saying sources that John Mulaney warned me the New York Post uses, because the source is really pulling something out of nothing with this Theron choice.

As quoted in OK! via Yahoo:

The duo are even hoping to work together on Captain Marvel, the comic giant’s upcoming first female-led superhero film. The source said: “Marvel has been courting Angie [Angelina Jolie] to direct the project and Charlize is a clear fan favorite for the starring role. If Charlize were to get the part, Angie would almost certainly sign on to work with her new pal.”

Possibly the least founded rumor ever, although, you have to applaud the kid-like rationalization: they’re friends, Jolie is maybe gonna direct, clearly the part would go to Theron! Thank you source, Hollywood will now go to you for all its casting needs.
