Charlize Theron was on Jimmy Kimmel last night. I’ve watched several clips from the interview – embedded below – and as far as I can tell, no talk of the Sean Penn breakup, no surprise. Instead, she told a story about how she once suggested to President Obama that she could take him to campaign at a strip club. Then Jimmy got her to comment about her wax figure at Madame Tussaud’s. And she talked about how she used to swim with sharks when she was growing up in South Africa, how cavalier it used to be. This, of course, is in reaction to the surfer who encountered a shark the other day during a competition – have you seen that video yet? I feel panic just thinking about it.
Anyway, Charlize was presumably there to promote Dark Places, coming out in August. Not the most entertaining guest on a talk show, at least not this time. Not sure if that’s a reflection of the movie or a reflection of her mood, although you’d think, after cutting out Sean Penn, she’d be in a great mood.
