Charlize Theron has slammed actor Steven Seagal for his inappropriate behavior toward women and noted that she is not afraid to talk about it.

While making an appearance on Sirius XM’s “The Howard Stern Show,” the 44-year-old actress pierced through the actor and called him “incredibly overweight.” Theron further stated that the 68-year-old is not “very nice” to women either.

“I have no problem talking [explicit] about him because he is not very nice to women, so [explicit] you,” Fox News quoted Theron, as saying during the podcast.

In 2017, Ellen DeGeneres’s wife and model-turned-actress Portia de Rossi accused actor-producer Seagal of sexual misconduct. The "Arrested Development" actress took to Twitter and alleged that Seagal unzipped his leather pants during an audition to see if they had chemistry "off-screen." 

"He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants. I ran out and called my agent. Unfazed, she replied, ‘well, I didn’t know if he was your type,’” de Rossi tweeted at the time.

Meanwhile, in 2018, former model Faviola Dadis came forward and shared her terrifying encounter with the Hollywood star when she was just 17.

People reported that the Dutch national claimed that the “Under Siege” actor grabbed her nipples and her genitals during a late-night audition back in 2002. Dadis said that she went to Seagal’s hotel room for the audition, and she was asked by the actor to walk around in a bikini for him.

“I quickly yelled that this audition is over, and I began gathering my things. Steven sat there calmly as if nothing had happened while I was noticeably upset and terrified by the experience,” Dadis said. “I left feeling horrified and totally violated,” People quoted Dadis, as saying.

Other women like Jenny McCarthy, Regina Simmons, and Julianna Margulies also accused him of sexual assault.  

On the professional front, Theron will be seen next in Gina Prince-Bythewood’s upcoming movie “The Old Guard.” The cast also includes the likes of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Van Veronica Ngo, Harry Melling, and Natacha Karam in pivotal roles.
