Charlize Theron claimed on Monday that her first audition was with a producer who was inappropriate with her.
“He was a very big deal and is still a big deal,” Theron said on SiriusXM “Howard Stern Show.”
The 43-year-old actress explained that a modeling agent had recommended the audition after she told the agent she wanted to try to act.

“It was my first audition ever,” Theron said. “I was just 19, I still can 18. I had never for an audition.”
The agent told Theron the audition was at the producer’s house at 9 pm on a Saturday. When Theron showed, she said, the producer was barefoot and in his pajamas.
She said he took her to his home, sat very close to her and was drinking.
“He had a very healthy ego, he felt good about themselves,” she described.
She said that there is no good feeling about the situation and asked him about the read of the pages she had given, but he continued to tell her that they were just going to talk. Eventually, he laid his hand on her knee, she said, adding that was when she realized that she had to leave.
“It’s crazy and the girls are talking about this, where you just empty. If you don’t know what to do, but I left. I don’t even know how I got out of the house, but I left,” she said.
She went on to say that as she was driving home she was angry at herself for not speaking.
“I was like, ‘I’m not that kind of girl. Why did I not tell him to go f— himself?’ It made me so angry,” she said.

However, her story came full circle eight years later, after they had made a name for himself. Theron told Stern that the producer finally offered her a job and she went to discussing the “purely just to have my moment,” she said.
“He said,” Nice to meet you.’ And I said, “No, we have met before.’ And he had no recollection of. And his production-partner was standing right next to him and he was embarrassed,” Theron explained.
“I went down the list, I said,” It was 9 p.m. on a Saturday in your house, you were wearing pajamas.’ I went down the list. I had my moment. He said, “Wow, I don’t remember that, ‘” she added.
“Which, by the way, you will see how many women he did it to. If he doesn’t even remember, it is not a one-off,” Stern said.
