Charlize Theron Says She Didn't Want Politics To Overshadow 'Bombshell'!

Charlize Theron keeps it chic and sophisticated while stepping out for a special screening of her film Bombshell held at the MPAA on Wednesday (November 13) in Washington, DC.

At the screening, the Oscar-winning actress revealed there was worry while she was filming Bombshell that politics could overshadow the message in the movie.

“There was an interesting feeling, I think, for all of us with the fact that the real story, the real narrative was that Megyn, at that time, was part of the debates and was going through what was a very well-known debate session with [President] Trump,” Charlize, who stars as former Fox News host Megyn Kelly in the drama, said (via The Hill).

“The strange thing was that the story itself kind of dictated to us that that had to be in the movie,” Charlize continued to CNN’s Dana Bash in the Q&A, alongside the film’s director Jay Roach and writer Charles Randolph.

“And yet at the same time, I think we were all somewhat concerned that we didn’t want the politics to overshadow what the movie really was about. But the politics really fed into the story,” Charlize added. “We were really concerned because we didn’t want this to be a political film. This was a film about sexual harassment. This was a film about women not feeling safe in their workspace and not having that equal right to be able to go to work, to be ambitious, to have every other quality that men have in their workspace and not to not have that be turned as a negative against them.”

FYI: Charlize is wearing Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello and Maria Tash jewelry.
