Charlize's update today came as a celebratory one: the star was over the moon that her new Bombshell movie has been nominated for a SAG award, although fans of the famous blonde may have been over the moon for different reasons. The video showed Theron jumping up and down on a bed surrounded by a squad of friends – Theron stood out by wearing a green robe.
That Giant Edit
Charlize was definitely thrilled that her entire movie's cast had been nominated in the Best Drama category. While some celebrities will celebrate a nomination with a glass of champagne (and a slinky dress), Theron seemed happy to do it completely commando and in a robe.
"I'm not wearing any underwear!" the Oscar winner was heard saying.
That definitely became visible as the star accidentally exposed her nether regions for what would likely have been some very NSFW footage without the edit. And yes, the giant colored panel likely hit the star's fans with a bang.
Acknowledging It With A 'Whoops'
Fans paying attention to Theron's caption will have noticed that the actress directly referred to her wardrobe malfunction with a 'Whoops."
The video definitely proved popular, though, racking up over 550,000 views in the space of six hours.
Fan comments largely seemed to see users turning a blind eye to the oops moment, with countless users taking to the comments section of the video to congratulate the actress.
"Love you!!!!" one fan wrote.
"Exciting!!" another added.
"Well deserved" was another comment.
Then again, the odd fan did seem to pick up on it.
"Oops," one fan wrote.
On A More Serious Note, Bombshell Is About Sexual Harassment
Bombshell centers around sexual harassment at Fox News, with Theron herself opening up to The Independent on how watching the movie made her feel.
"Watching this has been eye-opening to a lot of people. Men, especially, go, 'I had no idea women had to do things like that'. It’s humbling that you can create that kind of moment, because a lot of times you know people are going to say, 'This is a woman’s movie, and men will not tap into this at all,'" she told the newspaper.
"When men can emotionally engage with what we experience and be just as disturbed by it, it’s a powerful thing," she added.
And She's Playing Megyn Kelly
Charlize takes on Megyn Kelly in the movie. The actress revealed how her friends reacted when they discovered that she'd be playing the former Fox News anchor.
"It was definitely awkward. In a weird way, the judgment she gets from a lot of people, I felt on me a little bit. But up until four weeks into shooting, I was still grappling with who she was as a person, and it wasn’t until I really zeroed in on that year-and-a-half of the story that I could actually defend her," Theron said.
Although What Is It With Celebs And Wardrobe Malfunctions?
Kim Kardashian's SKIMS shapewear line may have released tape to help prevent awkward moments up top, but half of Hollywood is still walking around in flash mode.
Earlier this year, former Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham suffered a major wardrobe malfunction as she exposed her nether regions on the Venice Film Festival's red carpet. 2019 has also seen model Kaia Gerber suffer a wardrobe malfunction during Fashion Week.
From Tara Reid to Paris Hilton, it looks like the stars still haven't gotten the knack of keeping within the boundaries of their clothing.
Fans would likely agree that Theron's video today was an adorable one, though. It even featured a cute dog.
