Is Charlize Theron Dating Gabriel Aubry? Has She 'Swum in the Lady Pond'? Watch Her Answer!

Charlize Theron has been fighting some Gabriel Aubry dating rumors – but she shot them down on Watch What Happens Live! on Sunday (July 23).

“No! I’ve never met him. I met him for like three seconds, like, passing I was just like, ‘Hi!’ because our kids go to the same school,” Charlize said during “Plead the Fifth.” If you didn’t know, Gabriel is Halle Berry‘s ex, and they have a daughter together.

“I f**ked him, though. It’s just sex, though,” James McAvoy replied jokingly.

Andy also asked Charlize if she had ever “swum in the lady pond,” and she responded, “When I was young, yes! I feel like when you’re young, you’re just kind of exploring it all, but it was pretty clear that I really like dudes.”

Charlize Theron Talks About Gender Pay Gap at Comic-Con

Charlize Theron is a kick-ass woman so it’s no surprise that she spoke on Entertainment Weekly’s Women Who Kick Ass: Icon edition panel during 2017 Comic-Con!

The 41-year-old actress opened up about her movie Atomic Blonde, the gender pay gap, and more at the panel on Saturday (July 22) in San Diego, Calif.

Charlize says she is glad there are “movies like Wonder Woman succeeding” because it “takes the option away from studios” to not pay actors equally. She says unequal pay was not an option for Universal on her movie The Huntsman: Winters War, which featured fierce women like Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt.

“We’re just as good as the guys!” Charlize said at the end of the panel (via EW).

Charlize Theron Opens Up About Her Mother Killing Her Father in Self-Defense

Charlize Theron is opening up about a dark period in her life which ended in her mother killing her alcoholic father in self-defense.

The 41-year-old actress recently recalled the horrific incident, which she says she pretended didn’t happen for many years.

“I just pretended like it didn’t happen. I didn’t tell anybody — I didn’t want to tell anybody. Whenever anybody asked me, I said my dad died in a car accident. Who wants to tell that story? Nobody wants to tell that story,” she said during an interview with Howard Stern.

“I didn’t want to feel like a victim. I struggled with that for many years until I actually started therapy,” Charlize explained, adding that she began to speak to a therapist in her late 20s.

Charlize says the therapist helped her understand how her alcoholic father’s unpredictability impacted her life, but thankfully she had her mother by her side for support.

“I have an incredible mother. She’s a huge inspiration in my life…Her philosophy was, ‘This is horrible. Acknowledge that this is horrible. Now make a choice. Will this define you? Are you going to sink or are you going to swim?’ That was it,” she concluded.

Charlize Theron Almost Played Roxie Hart in 'Chicago' Movie

Charlize Theron is opening up about being fired from the movie musical Chicago.

The 41-year-old actress was attached to the project back in the late 1990s when it was still in development. She was slated to play Roxie Hart, a role that went to Renee Zellweger.

“The director kicked me off it. I was really bummed about it. And I think because I had it, I was like, ‘Ah… I’m gonna make this movie’ and I got kicked off it,” Charlize said in an interview on Howard Stern‘s SiriusXM show this week.

Charlize explained that she was fired as the film changed directors and the new director, Rob Marshall, had a different vision for the role.

“Well, there was another director attached and he brought me on. And then that director got fired and this new director got brought on and he didn’t want to make the movie with me,” she said.

Renee was nominated for an Oscar for her work in 2003 and the next year, Charlize won the Oscar for her role in Monster.
