On Monday, Theron was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Kelly in Bombshell, which tracks the fall of former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes (John Lithgow) after Kelly and Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) accuse him of sexual harassment. "I was, like, really into it", she said.

But I agree with Kelly and her husband, when I say that it seemed to me the creators behind it all, including director Jay Roach (Trumbo), were very eager to mix the film, while the underlying way was still timely now.

The Bombshell star looked back on the odd smooch during a sit-down with Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday (15Jan20), in which she recalled a seemingly enjoyable evening out that took a very unusual turn. "I've never forgotten it because I've yet to meet another person who likes to have somebody make out with their nose". Here's a list of actors and actresses who made appearances in the movie that you probably would never have realized were they, or if you did, you undoubtedly angered F for that.


When Kimmel asked if the guy could've been joking, Theron shot that theory down.

In an interview with Deadline after receiving her Oscar nomination, Theron, 44, said that watching the video was "incredibly emotional".

She then said she didn't want to ruin the moment so she gave in to his request, delivering a small peck on the tip of his nose. "And then, he pulled away and whispered, 'Make out with my nose, '" she said.


In the two decades that have passed since that disaster date, Theron has adopted two children, August and Jackson.

"It's been a thrilling couple of weeks. Spoiler alert: I didn't win", she said, before describing her kids' reaction to her loss. "And my 8-year-old [had] just pure disappointment". Because this is such a non-partisan. this is not a political film, it's not about Fox per se, really it's just the time and place in the world.

Meanwhile, star news anchor Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron) is at loggerheads with Donald Trump, whose shocking comments on Twitter risks creating a conflict with one of the most senior on screen figures of the network favoured by Trump supporting, gun toting redneck, gay hating rampant Republicans across the country.
