- Charlize Theron was hesitant to play polarizing figure Megyn Kelly at first, but was convinced by the director of " Game Change".
- Theron "All of my issues that I have with that world, I had to put all of that aside because the story was worth telling, It does not have anything to do with how I feel about Fox News or how I feel about Republicans. That's not what this film is about".
- Theron recruited renowned makeup artist Kazu Hiro, who won an Oscar for transforming Gary Oldman into Winston Churhill in " Darkest Hour".
- Theron says the eye prosthetics did not always corporate. Theron " We were all cracking up because only one eye would blink".
"Theron says she approched Kelly not as good or bad but as a person. Theron" You can't tell a story like this if your're not empathetic. You don't have to be sympathetic, but if you don't understand or you're not willing to for a second stand in their shoes, you can't tell the story".
