Charlize Theron And The Pajama Producer

charlize theron 4[OK Magazine] At 19, shortly after moving to Hollywood from South Africa, Charlize Theron was introduced to a producer’s casting couch.

“I thought it was a little odd that the audition was on a Saturday night at his house in Los Angeles, but I thought maybe that was normal,” Theron told OK Magazine. He was in his Hugh Hefner pajamas—I go inside and he’s offering me a drink, and I’m thinking, My God this acting stuff is very relaxed. But it soon becomes very clear what the situation was. I was like, “Not going to happen! Got the wrong girl, buddy!”

    John Duigan
    He cast The Journey of August King around the time Charlze would have been 19. Thandie Newton got the part.

    Anytime I hear of any casting couch story my mind immediately jumps to either Robert Evans or Jon Peters.

    For her to say what she ended up saying after being stupid enough to go to the guys house.
    Please none of it adds up to me.

    Sorry Charlize I am not buying the innocent act. You had to know that going to a producers house at night isn’t going to be about business.

    I always wondered why her career never really went far. She has done a lot, but not as much as I would have thought. Maybe this is why, and it makes you wonder about some of the ones who have hit it big for no apparent reason.

      I’d say a Best Actress Oscar is pretty far.

      Besides, with the dearth of decent scripts in Hollywood (other than maybe some indies you don’t hear so much about), what is there worth being in for someone who does it for more than just the money?

    She should call him out. Doesn’t she have enough money and clout to out this perv?

    • GossipProblem says

      She probably still wants work. A producer has way more clout in Hollywood than any Actress, it doesn’t matter which one. They find the movies, fund them, and distribute them. They are the energy that moves that industry. She can’t. I’ve always thought I’d go on blast if I made it in that industry but the more I learn about it the more I realize you just can’t. Unless you absolutely are done with it all and want to get out. But even then its hard because some of these producers and executives have ties to VERY POWERFUL people outside of the industry that could do more damage to her than keeping her from some roles. It really is sad. This is why the pedophilia rings in Hollywood have never been brought down. No one is willing to cross anyone in this industry because these people have connections that are scary.

      • Moonpie says

        The connections now extend to the political realm. Look at Clooney. He practically has to be surgically disconnected from the president’s butt. What you are suggesting has to be an overarching sweep for change. Maybe RICO the hell out of them. But where do you begin. If this kid alleging sexual abuse is telling the truth, he is to be commended. The state’s attorney general would need to get involved but all of Hollywood who have been aggrieved have to come forward and name names.

    What job in this country requires a professional to have sex with the boss first before a hire is made. An IBM boss does that and he is in court the next day. I think it’s time all actors came out and outed these men. There is strength in number. Follow that through with a class action lawsuit against the individual and the studio in any state that generates this form of entertainment.
    The states should be sued for not going after this perversion. Although there should be no reasonable expectation one is going to get the part, there should be all reasonable expectation one is not going to get asked to lower their panties. Ever. This industry is anti female and now we know it’s anti children.

    THE MASK! Instead they went with cameron diaz (whom had already done pornographic ventures at that point in her career)…maybe.

    • katekatebobate says

      Come to think of it, It has to be THE MASK… I looked at stills of cameron from the movie and her character looks just like the photo of Charlize above. The mask was the movie that made her career in hollywood and i’m convinced it was also the role C turned down.

      • katekatebobate says

        ZAP, youre confused honey. Charlize is in the photo above and she missed out on the mask role. Cameron did the mask. Got it? We good champ?

      • candymandie says

        hmmmmm…..I bet you are right on with that. She does look like camerson diaz’s character in that photo and her age and dates seem to match with her being about 19 at the time.

    I worry that outing these producers will brand the actresses who DID get the roles. I hope that revealing them doesn’t turn into victim shaming.
