Earlier on the same day, Charlize was spotted heading to The View, wearing a totally different outfit.

For her appearance on the daytime talk show, Charlize decided on a holiday look from Dior. She wore a festive pair of red and green plaid cropped trousers and a black sweater with ruffled shoulders.

A day before hitting the promo trail, Charlize attended the New York screening of Bombshell held at Lincoln Center.

The face of Dior J’adore naturally wore a look from the fashion house. She showed off her décolletage in a sleeveless white suit, which she teamed with a black cape.

Charlize details sexual harassment incident

In an interview with NPR on Tuesday, Charlize shared details about a sexual harassment incident that she suffered at the hands of a “famous director” in 1994 when she was just starting out her career.

The said director invited Charlize to audition at his home on a Saturday night. Once inside, Charlize said that the director “wore silk pajamas and offered me a drink and rubbed my knee.”

“I remember saying, “I’m sorry that I have to leave,” because I was trying to remove myself from the room,” she recalled.

She added: “I put a lot of blame on myself in the sense that I was angry with myself that I didn’t say all the right things and that I didn’t tell him to, you know, take a hike, and that I didn’t do all of those things that we so want to believe we’ll do in those situations. Instead, I very politely apologized. And then I was in my car driving away. And I just kept hitting the steering wheel.”

“I was just starting out in the industry. I didn’t really know the ins and outs,” Charlize continued.

The South African actress added “I literally was telling myself as I was driving there on a Saturday night at 9 o’clock, well, maybe that’s how they do it in the movie industry. I don’t know. I’ve never done this.”

Eight years later, Charlize found a chance to finally confront the “very well-known director” after he offered her another role. During the meeting, she said she brought up their first encounter, but the director just “moved on from the conversation like he just didn’t want to address it.”

She also mentioned that she divulged the director’s name more than once in the past, but “every time I disclosed his name, the journalist made the decision not to write his name.”

Charlize denies sleeping with Harvey Weinstein

In an interview with the New York Times a few weeks ago, Charlize called out Harvey Weinstein for spreading a rumor about her.

The actress said that the former film producer told people that she slept with him to get into movie roles. She also said that Harvey “did that to everybody.”

“One of his lines was that Renée [Zellweger] and I slept with him to get jobs… There was no limit to him.”

“Pitting women against each other? He was really, really good at that,” she added. “There was a lot of, like, ‘Well, I’m talking to Gwyneth [Paltrow] for this movie…’ Even in the sexual favors, he would still pit us against each other.”
