Charlize Theron is Chelsea Handler’s latest drinking buddy, ugh

This story upsets me. You know how little I think of Chelsea Handler, and how little I think of people who associate with Chelsea. She’s a drunken vortex of Anti-Talent. In the past few years, Chelsea has gotten her vodka-soaked hooks in Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon – Chelsea and Reese actually worked together in This Means War, with Chelsea’s presence pretty much ruining the trailer (and I would imagine the film as well). So with Reese now infected with L’Handler, and Aniston fully committed to her new BFF/drinking buddy (where is Courteney Cox, by the way?), it seems like Chelsea is still looking to pull more A-listers to The Drunk Side. Her latest victim? Charlize Theron. Nooooooo.

Chelsea Handler is quickly becoming every It Girl’s new BFF. The 36-year-old Chelsea Lately host joined Jennifer Aniston, 42, and Justin Theroux, 40, for dinner at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood Thursday, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm.

Shortly after Handler’s arrival, Oscar winner Charlize Theron joined the three stars at their table. “Jen was absolutely cracking up at Chelsea telling a story,” an eyewitness tells Us. “She was clapping her hands and laughing loud enough for the whole restaurant to notice.”

Once Aniston and Theroux took off, Theron, 36, and Handler decided to polish off a few more drinks. “They stayed for about another hour,” according to the eyewitness.

Theron and Handler hit it off so well that the E! comedienne invited the Young Adult star over to her $6 million house in the Holmby Hills area of Bel Air, Calif. for a Super Bowl party on Sunday.

“Charlize and a girlfriend stopped by Gil Turner’s liquor store on the way to the party. They got a big box of Dogfish Head Ale, glasses and two bottles of Belvedere Vodka,” an eyewitness says. “Charlize had so much alcohol to carry, she could barely make it up the driveway!”

Other guests at Handler’s bash included Jenny McCarthy and Chelsea Lately staff members Josh Wolf, Sarah Colonna and Chuy Bravo.

“We started drinking at 3:00 and then it just kept going. By 11:00 I couldn’t even see straight!” Handler recalled on Chelsea Lately Monday. “There was so much food at my house because my brother Roy thinks he’s a chef, and on top of that, people brought food.”

“I never eat when I have people over because I like to entertain and I like to say hello to everyone,” Handler added. “When everyone left I was like, ‘Get out those chicken wings! Get out all the leftovers now!’ Roy was like, ‘Calm down, you lunatic.’”

[From Us Weekly]

It sounds like this story is coming directly from Camp Handler – the reference to “Belvedere Vodka” is especially suspicious coming from an unnamed source. Isn’t Chelsea’s life pretty much sponsored by Belvedere Vodka? And Charlize just happened to pick up the same brand of vodka that Chelsea gets paid to endorse? Right. I believe that Charlize and Chelsea hung out, and I believe that Charlize is a good-time girl who likes to party. But I’d like to believe that Charlize is smart enough to realize that hanging out with Chelsea isn’t helping her rep, you know?

    Theron fits right in … Doesn’t she have the rep of being a grade a bitch

    • Toot says:

      Exactly! Reese can be bitchy too so so I’ll call them the Blonde Bitchy Bunch.

    • Yorkie says:

      You’re reading way too much Lainey gossip. Charlize comes off as refreshingly real in interviews. I think Lainey just has it out for Charlize because she’s not willing to give PR-tweaked answers and besides being talented and drop dead gorgeous, she also comes across as genuinely cool. But in any case, Charlize should have better sense to hang out with these D-listers. Aniston can’t make a good movie to save her life (The Good Girl is the only movie worth watching with Aniston in it IMO), Reese is joining Aniston’s crap rank (cannot believe she is an Oscar winner), and Handler is the epitome of worthless. Charlize is way too good for these fools.

  2. Agnes says:

    “36″. Hahahahahaha!

    • Kerfuffles says:

      Yeah–WTH? Chelsea Handler is only 36?! She’s either lying badly or aging badly. I thought she was at least mid-40s. Theron & Anniston certainly don’t look OLDER than her.

      • Alex says:

        This brought back memories of the big blind item posted a month or two ago. It seriously had to be her, because there is no way in hell she is 36 years old – even with all the vodka and passing out cold on her face every night.

    • Lee says:

      seriously! that truly is hilarious.

    • EBitch says:

      Chelsea is a booger sugar girl, too. I know Aniston has done it a few times, but Charlize? Reese I doubt because of her kiddos, but you never know.

    • Snowpea says:

      Really? You don’t think so? I’m 36 and I probably look like that under harsh lighting.

      I think everyone has forgotten what age really looks like. I mean, for goodness’ sake, when 49 year olds look like (the pre-breakup) Demi, how are we meant to accurately gauge people’s real age?

      • Snowflake says:

        I agree Snowpea. I’m 36 and I’m showing crow’s feet. We’re just used to seeing stars Botox’d, etc, out the you-know-what. so we’ve forgotten what typical aging,without help, looks like.

  3. Marjalane says:

    Oh Charlize. Don’t go down that dirty, vodka soaked road. Your friends at Dior will not be amused. I totally agree with the bit about Chelsea Handler RUINING the trailer for Reese Witherspoons new movie- it just made me roll my eyes and think, “Oh this one’s going to stink”.

  4. sassenach says:

    Not a party I would want to attend. Just a bunch of annoying, bitchy, bottle blondes.

  5. Evie says:

    Nooo Charlize!

  6. Dusty says:

    These ladies hanging with Handler show their true colors. “The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them.”
    ― Maya Angelou

    • Ell says:

      Dusty, I can’t believe you’re quoting Maya Angelou – you do realise this could apply to 95 per cent of Hollywood. Nothing is REAL in the land of stars.

  7. Trollontheloose says:

    Mean girl and not funny/talentless Chelsea Handler is “36″?? joke

  8. Aiobhan says:

    First, I love the photo of her moving in heels. I don’t really know why I like but I do.

    In reference to the article: meh. I agree that an A-list actress like Charlize should not be hanging around asses like Handler (who I used to find funny for awhile)But drinking buddies are not friends. At least I don’t consider drinking buddies friends. They are the wild people that you hang out with for a good fun time but never really find a reason to do anything else with but having said fun time.

    I’ll wait until we see them hanging out together at Dior fashion shows or random outings together before completely writing off anyone.

    • angel says:

      She isn’t moving. She is carrying a box of Belvedere vodka (clearly written on the box), a case of beer(Dogfish Head brand), and a black box that looks like it would hold two wine glasses or pint glasses. It looks like she was papped carrying stuff into Chandler’s house!

      • Aiobhan says:

        Wow! Thanks for taking time out of your day to correct me. I am so happy that you caught that and missed the point. I don’t care what she is carrying. She is carrying enough boxes in her arms that she looks like she is moving the entire store to Chelsea’s house. I just liked the fact that she was doing it in those awesome shoes. Jeez.

    • demian bichir says:

      Hmmm…Now i know why GALLIANO chose THERON as a the face of DIOR.

      This seems like a very good choice afterall.
      I mean now that i know that they were probably drinking buddies.

  9. mia girl says:

    Charlize’s boots in that first pic are great. I want!!!

  10. Julie says:

    I hate thinking of Charlize hanging with her because I like her but not Chelsea. But I hardly think Charlize is too worried about her rep if she does, particularly if it’s not too often and they are BFF’s.

  11. NO SH¡T says:

    Handler is like herpes she can/will infect any and everybody she comes across.

  12. Kelly says:

    Am I the only one cracking up that Charlize brought glasses? Like she wasn’t the only one picturing Chelsea and pals just passing the vodka bottle and box of wine around the room?

  13. demian bichir says:

    Why wasn’t Bichir invited at that party?

    I can’t believe i missed that!That party was the place to be.

    Geondra(Charlize’s mother is a sexy beast) was present or not?What was she thinking about MDNA’S performance?

    Was she trying to recreate some of the moves like the slits?

  14. mln76 says:

    I tend to think the only reason one hangs with Handler is either PR & publicity, or drugs & booze. I wonder which one it is for Theron.

    • patw says:

      or maybe she’s fun? I think there are certain personalities that you gravitate to for a good time. Handler looks like one of them just from the interviews I’ve seen her do.

      • Kara Ann says:

        That’s my thought too! I think the Chelsea is a drunken, evil woman is taking things too far. At worst, she’s a comedian with questionable taste in comedy which happens to be making her pretty wealthy right now.
        Didn’t other people have a close friend who was kind of a bad girl? At one time, I know I did and she turned out to be someone that really would be there for you when you needed her despite her rampant partying.
        BTW, Theron is one of the most gorgeous people I have ever seen. I do think she has a “bitchy” side but that probably means I would like her. You know cause I enjoy that like here on celebitchy!

  15. MM says:

    would looooooooooove to down vodka with handler! stop the bi**ing people!!! maybe shes 40 something but shes funy. if shed be a man, ud love him!

    • CJ says:

      Thank you! I don’t get all the Chelsey hate. Maybe I missed some news about her clubbing seals or something? She’s not the most talented actress but I don’t think she’s horrible.

    • Shelly says:

      I agree. A girl who likes vodka as much as me would be a friend indeed, lol!

  16. alc says:

    I’m so glad to read other people feel like I do about Handler. To read some articles, you’d think she was just “the” girl to have in your posse. The trailer for “This Means War” makes me want to hurl, it looks so stupid and I can’t believe she’s in a Reese Movie. Don’t know why anyone would want to see it. Handler is a no talent, rude, obnoxious wannabe who is not funny and I wish she would just go away. Idiot! Has her stupid show been cancelled? Here’s hopin’.

  17. heidiho says:

    AWWh I want a drinking buddy like her….sigh

  18. Sumodo1 says:

    Do you know how much that stuff weighs all together? Charlize still has her farmgirl muscles, if she’s carrying all that. She’s a strong woman!

  19. Imelda says:

    Loves it – that sounds like my kinda girls! Fun, fun, fun – play the boys at their own game and win.
    The sheer hatred for the CH on here is truly stunning, relentless and disingenious. Also most people posting on here are probably blonde bitches (myself included) and so the hypocracy seems to pass everyone by!
    Sounds like most of you would fit right in with that crowd…………..

  20. kura2 says:

    I christen her.. CHODKA

  21. Paloma says:

    I don’t get the attraction to Handler. The only time I watched was when she had Aniston on and she kissed her a**. Always smiling and laughing at what Jen had to say, a real brown-noser. Has Jen and Courtney’s lives taken off in different directions?

    • Sophie says:

      Courteney just told Howard Stern this morning that she and Jen are still close and that they were having dinner together tonight. Adam Carolla mentioned on his podcast recently that he saw CC, JA and JT out to dinner at some private club in late January, and that he went over to their table to say hello. Their friendship seems to be fine.

  22. The Original Mia says:

    Charlize, gurl…no! Not Chelsea.

  23. author says:

    I don’t know personally I hate Handler. She reminds me of the main character in the movie Pretty Persuasions
    A conversation with Chelsea Handler:

    “I have respect for all races, but I’m very glad that I was born white. As a woman, it’s the best race to be. Especially if you want to become an actress, like I do. ”

    ” If I wasn’t white, then the next thing I would wanna be is Asian because a lot of men like Asian girls because they think they’re docile and subservient and sweet which I don’t really think is true because I once met this Asian girl at summer camp one time and she was a real bitch. ”

    “If I couldn’t be white and I also couldn’t be Asian, then my third choice would be African-American because I’ve always wanted to be a gospel singer and also, black men are more forgiving if your butt gets big. Except I’d definitely want light skin and Caucasian features like… Vanessa Williams or Halle Berry. And finally, you know, no offense or anything Randa, but my very last choice would be Arab. I mean, truth be told you’re not in a very enviable position. There’s a lot of resentment in this country toward the Middle East and there’s a lot of stereotypes floating around which I don’t think are true because in the short amount of time I’ve known you, you haven’t tried to bomb anybody and you currently smell okay to me. ”

    the end.

    • patw says:

      hee. kernels of truth in ALL those statements.

    • Sophie says:

      Louis CK, who’s brilliant, had a bit in his stand up that’s similar. Basically, if he was given a choice every year as to which race he would be, he’d check the “white” box every time. Not because white people are superior, but because it’s just a lot easier being white.

      Anyway, as an Asian woman, I know the creepy Asian fetishists of which she speaks.

      I really have no opinion on Chelsea herself. I’ve seen her show maybe three times. From what i recall, her panel was funnier than her.

  24. Zorbitor says:

    I’d rather smoke weed.

  25. Lindsey G. says:

    Chelsea H. does look for a 50-year-old, ya’ll.

  26. Kimbob says:

    Handler has perfected the art of ass-kissing & sycophantic relationships. Hate to be crude, but Chelsea doesn’t just kiss asses…she puckers for the ass-holes….LMAO! Seriously, that about sums it up IMO.

    When I heard about Chelsea and Jennifer…I wasn’t surprised. When I heard about Chelsea and Reese…again…no surprise. But, for some reason, I’m just a TAD BIT disappointed in Charlize. Didn’t know she was like that…now I do….another one bites the dust.

    As for the “Chelsea hate?” It’s like this…Chelsea is the ultimate mean girl. She is downright nasty and has no soul. She sold her soul a long time ago as the price of paying her dues for fame. At this point, she feels she’s puckered up for enough assholes that she’s earned the right to snub/ignore some in show biz (anyone remember Joan Rivers?)…again…the ultimate mean girl.

    BTW…I could stand to be corrected…but does Chelsea do any type of philanthropic work? Does she have any “causes?” Does she stand for anything other than herself? If she has, I’ve never heard of it.

  27. Mac says:

    This doesn’t appear to be Charlize Theron’s first Super Bowl Party.

    I doubt she’s concerned with whether Chelsea Handler passes anyone else’s friendship litmus test.

  28. sukienow says:

    they both love their weed lol

    infact add aniston to the mix and you get three weed lovers. reese doesnt strike me has someone that smokes weed though.

  29. Asli says:

    Disappointed but not surprised.

  30. Newtsgal says:

    1st. Ain’t no way the bitch is 36!
    2nd. I accidentally turned on the Chelsea show on NBC and my right hand to Jesus, the way she talked I thought it was Jan Brady from the Brady Bunch.

  31. Leek says:

    Noooooo!!! I have no desire to meet a celebrity but the ONE I would really like to hang out with for a day is drinking buddies with Chelsea Handler?? She is an unfunny alcoholic who makes a career out of making fun of celebs. Anyone could do that and it’s the easiest job in the world and…ew, yuck, she is just gross.

  32. kas says:

    “My brother Roy, who thinks he’s a Chef…”

    This is why I just gave up on her and her show. The CONSTANT little digs at everyone around her. She manages to somehow be aggressively passive-aggressive. And it’s always the exact same digs.

    She is the weakest link on her own show.

  33. B says:

    So they had a few drinks, big deal. Wake me up when a Kardashian gets peed on again. I need some real gossip.

  34. Brittney says:

    “…the reference to “Belvedere Vodka” is especially suspicious coming from an unnamed source. Isn’t Chelsea’s life pretty much sponsored by Belvedere Vodka?”

    In that picture you posted, Charlize is very clearly carrying a box of Belvedere vodka, as well as the glasses and Dogfish also mentioned. That “source” is Charlize herself.

  35. Stellax2 says:

    I’m not a fan of Handler. I don’t see her appeal however people seem to like to party with her.
    Chelsea doesn’t look like she’s 36, age fudging, another hollywood trait. I was wondered if Chelsea used to be a big drinker and now it’s just background noise to push her schtick.
    I don’t know and could care less.

    I think Charlize likes to party. She’s also known as an uber b****. I have no idea if it’s the truth, but no reason for girlfriend not to get her party on if she wants.

  36. Michael says:

    If Chelsea Handler is 36 years old than that is all the more reason to never drink alcohol again. She has all the class of STD infested barfly who’ll go down for a pat on a head and a fist full of peanuts. She is the most foul creature to have been unleashed on mankind.

  37. Jess says:

    Love ya Chelsea! :)

  38. Rodrigo says:

    Perhaps, just perhaps, maybe, and I’m really going on a limber here, but who knows, maybe the Belvedere reference made by the source story is because she has a f-ing BELVEDERE PACK in her hands in the very same photo you used to illustrate your story… And the dogfish head ale mentioned, is also there. But who knows, maybe I’m just crazy and some belvedere camp handler advertiser photoshoped that in there.

    What I dont understand is why in the world would Charlize need to bring bottles of belvedere to a person who “pretty much has her life sponsored by belvedere”, wouldn’t Chelsea have a cargo load of belvedere in her house? Perhaps now Charlize has her life sponsored by it now too…

    • Brittney says:

      Yeah, I loathe Handler too but I couldn’t believe it when I read that… directly below photographic proof…

  39. Guest 8 says:

    All are well-known ******* in Hollywood. Throw in Reese Witherspoon and you will have a real “GODDESS CIRCLE” ….. but not of the beneficil kind if you know what I mean.

    As far as I am concerned they all deserve each other. Best way to keep them off the streets and away from real folk.

  40. mememe says:

    I don’t know much about Chelsea and I can’t put my finger on why I don’t like her but I get a faint smell of trailer park from her.

  41. pro-chelsea says:

    why is everyone hating on chelsea handler. Sure she’s not the typical nice hollywood girl but so what? Chelsea is HILARIOUS!! Charlize and Chelsea seem like they make excellent friends and what’s the big deal if charlize goes to chelsea’s for a drink. btw chelsea looks good for her age.

    I adore chelsea… She seems real
