Atomic Blonde star and everyone’s standard lady crush Charlize Theron was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Sunday night, when a caller asked her why she felt it was important that her character in the new action flick was bisexual.
“Why not?” Charlize responded, going on to say, “it’s so strange when we talk so much about it. It should be normalized by now.”
Of course, this led Andy Cohen to turn the tables on her and ask whether she’d ever “swum in the lady pond” herself.
“When I was younger, yes,” Charlize revealed. “I feel when you’re young, you’re sort of exploring it all. [But] it was pretty clear that I really liked dudes.”
In the past, those dudes have included boyfriend of nine years Stuart Townsend and ex-fiancé Sean Penn. But there’s one recently rumored beau that is just a figment of the tabloids’ imagination. During a round of Plead the Fifth, Theron admitted that not only has she never dated Halle Berry’s ex Gabriel Aubry, but that she’s basically never even met him. In fact, there’s only one reason they’ve ever been in the same vicinity at all. “I’ve met him for three seconds [in passing] because our kids go to the same school,” she said.
Atomic Blonde co-star James McAvoy, however, had a much more interesting revelation. “I’m f***ing him though,” he quipped.
During the game, Charlize also gave the scoop on whether she had ever thrown shade at Tia Mowry at SoulCycle and what she knew about the feud between Vin Diesel and The Rock on the set of The Fate of the Furious. Watch her responses below.
