Charlize Theron recalls almost being a victim of the casting couch



Charlize Theron talked to Howard Stern about her first audition, and how she almost ended up a victim of the casting couch.

“I had just turned 19, I might have still been 18. I had never been out for an audition. I asked this modeling agent if she’d heard of anything … She said, ‘Yep. Go to this guy’s house. It’s on Saturday at 9 p.m.'”

Although she doesn't name the producer, she says he was a very big deal and is still one today.

She recalls after the man opened the door in his pajamas, he sat her down for a drink so they could 'talk' about the movie, “And then at one point, he put his hand on my knee. You just go blank. Like you don’t know what to do, but I left. I don’t even know how I got out of the house, but I left. It would have ended really badly.”
