Megyn Kelly Reacts to Watching Charlize Theron Play Her in 'Bombshell'

Megyn Kelly is sharing her reaction after seeing Bombshell for the first time.

The 49-year-old television personality was portrayed by Charlize Theron in the new film which chronicles the downfall of Roger Ailes and the Fox News sexual harassment scandal from the point of view of herself, Gretchen Carlson and fictional character Kayla Pospisil.

“While the movie Bombshell is loosely based on my experience during the sexual harassment scandal at Fox News, I have nothing to do with this film. I did not sell the rights to my story or book and only got my first look at the film once it was past the point of any possible edits, though there are certainly some I would have made,” Megyn wrote on her Instagram.

She continued, “Watching this picture was an incredibly emotional experience for me, and for those with whom I saw it. Sexual harassment is pervasive in this country; it can leave scars that do not heal. My heart goes out to those who’ve gone through it, who I hope might find some comfort in this story.”

Megyn added that she will share more thoughts on the film soon.

Bombshell is in select theaters now.
