Charlize Theron Says She Was Sexually Harassed by a ‘Very Famous Director’ Early in Her Career

She met the director in question at a house on a Saturday night in 1994 and that he greeted her in “silk pajamas and offered me a drink and rubbed my knee.” She then apologized to the director as a way to excuse herself from the room.

She has named this director in the past, but journalists who she has told have chosen not to print his name.

8 years after the harassment incident, she met with the director again and hoped to confront him about it.
“He just moved on from the conversation, he just didn’t want to address it. At that moment, it was clear to me that it wasn’t his first time and that he had been doing this before and that other women had called him out."

If she named the director now while promoting “Bombshell” it would overshadow the importance of this story but promises that there will be a “right time” for her to name him again.
