Charlize Theron rolled her eyes & said ‘Oh my God’ when Tia Mowry said ‘hi’


I don’t have an opinion of Tia Mowry. I think I’ve seen her interviewed before and she seems like a nice person. I guess she’s sort of B-list or C-list, but she owns it. So, Tia Mowry spoke to In Touch Weekly about a recent A-list celebrity encounter she had and her story is SO FUNNY. The celebrity encounter? Charlize Theron. This is like the best Mean Girl story of the month.

Charlize Theron is Hollywood’s mean girl, according to Tia Mowry. In Touch recently spoke to Tia, who told the mag all about a rude encounter she experienced with the Oscar-winning actress at a SoulCycle spin class.

“She wasn’t very nice to me,” Tia, who has long admired Charlize’s work, dished to In Touch. “I said ‘Hi,’ and she actually rolled her eyes and said, ‘Oh my God.’”

While Tia tells the mag that she understands that anyone can be caught on a bad day, the exchange was still a disappointment. “I wasn’t over-the-top. I know how to approach another celebrity,” she adds. “Charlize was just mean. I’m just being honest.”

[From In Touch]

I actually laughed out loud at “she actually rolled her eyes and said, ‘Oh my God.’” I can see that. Can’t you? Charlize – unlike, say, Reese Witherspoon – owns her bitchiness though. Charlize isn’t pretending to be America’s Sweetheart or anything. Still… so rude. I bet it’s like the Mila Kunis thing too – Charlize was rude because she didn’t realize she was rolling her eyes at a B-list celebrity who would tell In Touch. Charlize was rude because she was greeted by someone she didn’t believe “counts” as a person.

    LOL! She’s like “I’m the chick from Sister, Sister! DON’T YOU KNOW WHO I AM?”

    This story made me laugh. Who knows if it’s true but I kind of want it to be.

    • JH says:

      Is that who she is?! I wasn’t going to google her, but I did not recognize her-at all-from that picture!!

    • Kiddo says:

      Thanks for that. I knew I vaguely knew her, but couldn’t place where from.

    • Nick says:

      It’s not like Tia expected Charlize to ask for her autograph but just to smile and say hi back. Which unless you’re one of her bitchy, blonde girlfriends or Fassbender, that’s too much effort for Charlize.

      • Kiddo says:

        I’m guessing, like O’Kitt said, that Charlize was clueless that she was an actress, maybe thought she was just a fan. That doesn’t make her any nicer, but this at least explains the compatibility with Penn.

      • Leaflet says:

        This, I totally agree. Thank you. Tia’s admiration for Charlize showed Tia’s humility. The Mowry girls are wholesome women. I guess it was because head is so far up her ass that she only respects her blond girlfriends glad Tia spoke up about it.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Thanks, Kiddo. Yes that’s what I meant.

        People are really mad about this huh? One celeb being rude to another celeb–oh, the injustice of it all! 😉

      • MyCatLoves TV says:

        I’m from the Midwest and when anybody smiles sweetly and says, “Hi!” to us we smile back and say, “Hi!” On a bad day maybe we just give a little nod & say, “Hey.” But FFS how hard is it to just be human to another human? I don’t get it. (To Tia’s credit she didn’t mutter under her breath, “B*tch”!)

      • nik says:

        Fassbender would DEFENITELY said hi. 😀

    • T.C. says:

      I can’t help it, this story made me crack up. Maybe there is more to it but who besides a 15 year old rolls their eyes and says “oh. My. God.” to a stranger ? I would have been laughing like crazy if a grown woman did that to me. Also LOL at “a fellow celebrity” I would have no idea who this Tia chick was.

      • kimbers says:

        I would have wet myself from laughing at Charitch- Hollywood’s favorite mean girl lol 😉

      • shun says:

        It really doesnt matter who tia mowry is or charlize theron. Their both human beings! If anyone says hi to you its comcourtisy to say hi back. Thats what the fuck is wrong with the world. People thinking they are better than other people. Certain status doesnt entitle you to be an asshole

      • Shaz says:

        right on Shun!

      • Godwina says:


      • Mel says:

        “who besides a 15 year old rolls their eyes and says “oh. My. God.” to a stranger ?”

        And it would have to be a shockingly ill-bred 15-year-old, I might add.
        (Certainly I don’t remember ever meeting anyone like that, of any age.)

        it IS laughable, definitely, and in the worst possible way for Theron.
        I’ve never been fan of hers, and if this is true… I am glad I am not one. Such behaviour is utterly contemptible.

        @Shun – I agree completely. It’s common courtesy to return a greeting, regardless of who it is that greets you. No if, no but.

    • Ladybird83 says:

      Charlize is an Ice queen?! Is that news?

    • Truth says:

      It’s true Charlize doesn’t hide her bitchiness. I saw her on David Letterman and she was going on and on about doing a train trip (through Europe) and how people couldn’t believe that she, “an Oscar winner,” would be doing a train trip. She’s a hideous person when it comes to ego and she and Penn unite through their egos. She’s friends with Chelsea Handler and Witherspoon etc.

      • Mel says:

        Good God…! Is that a true story?
        She does have a knack for self-parody, doesn’t she? 🙂

      • Truth says:

        Honest. It’s a 2011 interview; you can catch it on youtube. She’s also compared herself to Picasso at some stage, when explaining her bitchiness:
        “We came to the idea that Picasso had his blue period and this is my bitchy period.”

  2. Ag says:

    if true, that’s super bitchy. it doesn’t take much to crack a half-smile at someone. or to at least prevent yourself from rolling your eyes and saying something (it’s an effort, but it’s doable, i do it many times a day).

    • delia says:

      Tia and her sister have some bitch in them too so maybe it’s karma. about 10 years ago those twins were at a park in oak park ca and they tried to flirt with my husband to be while giving me mean girl once overs so this story made me laugh.

      • Kiddo says:

        It’s a bit incestuous that they BOTH flirted with your husband at the same time, unless it was a competition between the two. Geez.

      • MCraw says:

        Delia! That’s an awesome story lol. How’d that end? That’s too funny!

      • Tiffany :) says:

        As a twin, this story horrifies me. You never go after the same guy, you get harassed enough about creepy things as it is! EW!

      • Candy Love says:

        Tia and her husband Cory have been together for over 10 years.

      • Ag says:

        delia – omg, insane. lol

      • Kiddo says:

        So Tiffany, since we are on to stereotypes, do you claim to be the evil twin or the good twin? :>D

      • chloeee says:

        @Delia I live in Agoura next to Oak Park and they’re definitely locals. Their brother Taj has some stories of him being a real winner (sarcasm) as well. Maybe Tia approached her haughtily.

      • Erinn says:


        Not Smart Guy! This is disappointing.

      • Kim1 says:

        That’s odd since they are not attracted to the same type. Also Tia has been with Corey since 2001

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I’m totally the evil twin 😉

        My sister was always the more responsible, cautious one. I was the one who took chances! You could say I was the Jessica to her Elizabeth (SVH).

      • delia says:

        It happened roughly around 2000 or so. They were both young and standing side by side at the baseball field chain link fence at the oak hills elementary park. I recognized them from their sister sister program , smiled as I walked by and they in turn looked me over like I was trash. It was weird. Then my fiancee walks past a couple minutes later and they are looking him over and smiling all flirty. They might have just been bored cause the only guys were around were dads for a little league practice but they kept smiling at said hubby but that didn’t bother me- it was more that I was met with such indignant and bitchy looks when all I did was smile as I walked by. I see stars in this area a lot like jada smith and Jessica alba and Jamie Fox and never encountered such attitude. But I bet their age may have been the culprit at the time .

      • Mel says:

        Where’s “karma” when bad things happen to really really good people? 🙂

        Nah: this woman might very well be a rude idiot herself, for all I know, but that doesn’t excuse Theron’s behaviour.

    • Kiddo says:

      Ag, it might take a lot to crack a smile depending on the levels of botox. Maybe the eyes were the only thing that moved, subliminally signaling, “get me out of here”, (meaning outside of her head) lol

  3. Caliss says:


  4. JenniferJustice says:

    Can’t stand Theron – never could! Overrated and dull. Have yet to see her play anything meaningful or that even requires talent. I’d rather watch Tia on the screen than “I’m so beautiful” Theron. Can’t she ever have her picture taken where she’s just looking normal? No, she can’t restrain herself from giving the “fierce” face….seriously, so overplayed.

    • Nicolette says:

      I really liked her in The Devil’s Advocate though. Her character went from being annoying and superficial, to extremely sympathetic. But I am starting to believe the rumors that she is one of the biggest b*****s in Hollywood. If that’s the case, she and Penn are well suited for each other.

    • Tristan says:

      That’s absolute rubbish! CT is a FABULOUS actress, and it is wonderful that she is a complete bitch. She has every right to be & at least she isnt trying to kiss anyone’s butt to sell tickets. She was incredible in Snow White & the Huntsman, not to mention her Oscar winning turn in Monster. Why should everybody in the public sphere be expected to be all sweetness & light? She’s stunningly beautiful, wears her clothes & walks like a Goddess, is a great actress & doesnt give a toss about anyone else’s opinion. That’s a STAR in my book!

      • Luca26 says:

        While I agree that she’s very talented absolutely no one has the right to be a bitch just because of their status. If this story is true it makes Charlize sound like a tacky, miserable, insecure piece of s&@t.

      • Moffa says:

        Lol. I don’t really care if a celeb is nice or not. They don’t really owe anyone anything and it’s not like she pretends to be a big sweetheart. It’s pretty much common knowledge that she has an attitude. She seems like the type of person who hates everyone until they prove to her otherwise. Fine with me too!

      • Jaded says:

        Nobody….nobody has the right to be rude. Doesn’t matter if you’re a famous and stunningly beautiful actress, a politician, the head of a company or the man on the street. Rude is rude and just because you “act” doesn’t give you the right to be an a$$hole.

      • Kiddo says:

        I think it could get annoying really fast if people are hitting you up for conversations during the normal course of life, like after exercise class and whatnot. Charlize doesn’t seem like a person who actively seeks out a lot attention, so I don’t know. I would not want to be famous. Quietly wealthy, yes. Fame, where people recognize and approach me, no.

      • TheRealMaya says:

        Charlize is all of the things you said – stunning, talented and doesn’t claim to be america’s sweetheart (although she claim to be South Africa’s sweetheart).

        But her attitude and her bitchy personality is ruining her career and respect. Many people including me who used to be a fan of hers – well most of don’t like bitchy people like that. She may be a star (albeit a fading star) but she should learn to show some commen manners towards people – it doesn’t matter if they are fans, journalists etc no one has to right to act bitchy for no apparent reason. That trait takes precedence over everything else and that is what is making her lose fans and movies.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        Just because you have the right to be a bitch doesn’t mean you should. Or that you need to be, Being kind takes no more time and a lot less effort than being a bitch.

      • DTX says:


        OMG. Well if you ever see her walking down the street, feel free to lay down over a puddle of mud so that she can step on you since you believe she IS SO SPECIAL, SUCH A STAR that she isn’t required to act like a decent human being. LOL

        I, on the other hand, wouldn’t even step aside to let that rude b#tch through, she can walk AROUND ME. People are people no matter what their jobs are. They eat, sleep and sh*t just like the rest of us.

      • SpookySpooks says:

        No one has the right to be a bitch and rude and make people feel bad. No one, no matter what you did. She’s a frickin actress, she didn’t find the cure for cancer.
        If you’re a Nobel Prize winning scientist who somehow helped humanity, then you can be a bit cocky. An actress? Hell no.

      • FLORC says:

        She got choice roles and great supportive castings, but overall her acting isn’t anything special.
        And I don’t care what the actors are like in their day to day lives as long as they’re not jerks with entitlement issues. So, I guess I care a little.

        This isn’t breaking news, but it’s worth a laugh that Tia called her out over it.
        And the best of this is CT has attempted numerous times in movie promotions to be americas sweetheart. Fluffy pr planted stories of her good deeds.
        There are some people that do good, but not for the sake of doing good. For the sake of self satisfaction and word of mouth pay outs in pr.

      • Jane says:

        She evidently has no people skills or she wouldn’t need to have such a shitty attitude. What goes around, comes around. One day when her beauty can’t be helped by plastic surgery and her age puts her in that black hole that a lot of actresses can’t get out of because of the shallowness of Hollyweird, she will be getting an eye roll and an “Oh my God” from some producer or director who doesn’t want to deal with an actress past her prime and a bitch to boot.

      • Sozual says:

        Charlize is NOT STUNNING. They can say that a million times and it doesn’t make it true. She is a good looking chick. An 8 on the 1 – 10 scale.

        Yeah find the cure for a terminal disease, than you can have an ego.

      • holly hobby says:

        In the good old days, the profession of “actress” is akin to prostitute. Just because the mindset these days are more toward adulation doesn’t make her a special snowflake. My grandpa would have still have said she is working in the oldest profession known to man.

        Rude is rude. No adulation to bitchface.

      • Decloo says:

        Good manners are a must no matter who you are.

      • Brynne142 says:

        Actually if you go back a bit further, “actors” were buffoons; court jesters who would perform to “amuse the King.” So, I guess in today’s world, we are “King” and she’s the “buffoon.” Someone needs to remind CT of that.

      • Tdub30 says:

        It’s amazing that this blond is being praised for being a bitch but if a woman of color behaves in a similar manner it’s unleash the hounds time…quite telling indeed.

        And no I don’t care if it’s common knowledge that that’s her M. O., being rude for no reason (ESPECIALLY at her age) is completely unacceptable. :(. I agree with the comment earlier….that is what’s wrong with people. As my husband says, people suck.

      • AlmondJoy says:

        TDUB, I’m with you 100% If the roles were reversed and it was Tia acting rude and snobbish, the reaction from commenters would be much different.

      • RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

        Tristan = Charleeze publicist. Notice how they spun the conversation to admiration for Charleezes rudeness. EARN that paycheck!

      • Mel says:

        “Nobody….nobody has the right to be rude.”

        Exactly. There is absolutely no excuse for it.

        She WANTED to be famous, she strove for it, she went to Hollywood all the way from South Africa – surely she knew what fame entailed?
        If what she wanted was just to be an actress, without the fame, she could have become one in any local theatre around the world. Acting is acting – and to those who really are in for the acting, it is its own reward.

        And if she cannot even take a “hi” anymore, she could always retire from the limelight.

      • Mel says:

        “They eat, sleep and sh*t just like the rest of us.”

        Only MORE of it.
        And I do mean ALL of the above.

      • Pepsi Presents...Coke says:

        @Tdub30 and AlmondJoy:

        I know. Are people kidding me with this? You’d think Tia had pulled out a crossbow. Poor Charlize, so embattled because someone said ‘hi’. Did Charlize lose a war or some limbs? What’s the problem? My being Canadian (I guess) makes me think, ‘She only freaking said ‘hi’? What in fresh hell is this about? Is this CT’s present reality’s version of having to make it through the rain?’ The cynicism in me thinks, ‘Standard Operating Procedure’. Can’t go wrong if you’re blonde in the right town, you’re literally golden.

      • SamiHami says:

        Who said anything about sweetness and light? I just expect people in general to be polite. If someone says “Hi” to you, it doesn’t take much effort to say “Hi” back. No reason to be a bitch. At least refrain from eye rolling because someone extended a very brief, but friendly greeting.

    • lucy2 says:

      I have to disagree – I think she is really talented and has done some great roles. I also think she’s extremely beautiful.
      But no one ever accused her of being a nice, friendly person, LOL.

    • Nicolette says:

      @paranormalgirl +1.

    • Ronia says:

      I’m totally with you on this. Never could see her acting talent and her attitude pushed me far from seeing any of her future movies. As a person who does PR in the entertainment industry, I can say that image is ruined faster than snow melts in the sun. And getting back there can be and most often is a very painful journey. And after all, who exactly is Charlize Theron to treat other people like that??? An ex-model turned actress. Not the most unique combo. Jeez. (I dislike her looks too, I thousand tims prefer the inrodinary Blanchett to this cheesy looking blondie)

    • Vic says:

      I agree. She really chewed the scenery in Snow White and Prometheus. She is beautiful and more suited to supporting roles where she doesn’t talk much though I do think she played a convincing horrible person in Young Adult.

    • Jay says:

      Uhmmm have you never seen Monster? She was spectacular. She may be a mean girl, but you can’t knock her talent.

  5. GeeMoney says:

    Must be a slow news day…

  6. Rosemary says:

    I used to like Charlize but as of lately not so much

    • notpretentious says:

      IKR! What an ahole!

    • JennySerenity says:

      Same here, but not for the past year or so. Maybe she didn’t recognize the poor girl as a reality “star”, but who cares? If she’d be that nasty to a minor celeb, then how does she treat her average fan on the street?

      Ever since she started dating McRagey Penn (racist), and since Lainey’s reveal that she’s a huge cokehead, I no longer find this chick or her movies any sort of draw. Buh-bye, Charlize

      • Sozual says:

        She IS NOT A REALITY STAR!!! She and her twin starred in the 90’s t.v. show SISTER SISTER. I grew up with her along with many people in their 30’s. SISTER SISTER. FULL HOUSE, AND BOY MEETS WORLD were classic t.v. family shows.

  7. lisa2 says:


    I’m always so mad when some celebs get labeled as a bitch or cold and yet when you hear accounts of people that have met the person they say how great they are and down to earth.
    I don’t understand where this elitist attitude from Charlize would come from. I know she is an Oscar winner. Beautiful woman; but she is hardly a Hollywood powerhouse. She is not powerful in the industry. Winning and Oscar does not equate power. I guess she and Sean as I have said on many occasions are more alike than some would like to think.
    She needs to remember that the people you step on going up may be there when you go down.

    Yeah and look at the company she keeps too.

    • MCraw says:

      Oh absolutely. She came to my old job once for some movie tests and had parts of the facility closed off so she wouldn’t have to deal with seeing the staff. We were told to stay away, not look, talk or pass her by.

      I’m really of the mind that birds of a feather flock together. Sean Penn has been the happiest we’ve ever seen him. She is his complete bitch reflection. Happy bitches.

    • Mel M says:

      There are so many people in the world who aren’t rich and famous who are just rude awful people. I can only imagine what being fawned over and treated like a special snowflake would do to most people like this. I’m sure it just exasperates it. But I agree that it doesn’t take much effort to be nice to people and it will make you a much happier person as well. Why walk around with a scowl on your face and a bad attitude all your life?

      • Anname says:

        “Be nice to people on your way up because you’ll meet them on your way down.” –
        a quote used by my favorite actor, btw.
        Charlize better hope she doesn’t find herself on the way down if she frequently acts like that.

  8. bns says:

    I have always heard that Charlize Theron is a mega bitch. Her relationship with Sean Penn makes total sense.

    • HappyMom says:

      This exactly.

    • TX says:

      Yep yep yep. They have more in common than we were lead to believe, I suspect. Also, Im pretty sure Lainey has some blinds about what a biotch Charlize is.

      • bns says:

        I don’t know about any blind items, but Lainey straight up called her out on treating everyone like shit at some film festival a few years ago.

    • TheRealMaya says:

      You know I never heard anything bad about Charlize up until she started to hang out with Chelsea Handler. Rumours about her bitchyness started to come out and now with her relationship with Sean woman beating Penn – many more stories about coming out.

    • MarBear says:

      I usually take stories like this with a grain of salt…. celebs are human….we all have good and bad days however,I can totally believe Charlize is a bitch. I’ve heard countless stories about her meanness towards fans. A lot of people don’t know this but Charlize was “discovered” by a talent manager when he witnessed her make a scene at a bank because they were unable to cash her check….so yeah never thought she was a nice person. She’s gorgeous and has passable talent though.

  9. starfan says:

    Well, people who are friends with Chelsea Handler are kind of a ……….

    • lisa2 says:

      to be fair.. friends don’t make you an asshole. You are or were one to begin with.

      Friends like Handler just give you a safe place to let your inner asshole out. Birds of a Feather.. is the real.

    • Dani says:

      Chelsea at least says hi. I saw at at a starbucks in NYC this past winter and I went up to her, said hi and that I read a few of her books (she seemed a bit frazzled, dressed way down) and she still managed a smile and said hi back and joked that I shouldn’t have read her garbage. It won’t kill you to be nice for .5 seconds.

  10. K-Rock says:

    I don’t doubt that it happened. Why in the world would Tia Mowry make up such a random story? And as for Charlize….I loathe stuck up celebrities and I can’t wait for her stardom to fade so bigger celebrities can “oh my god” and roll their eyes at her. What a bitch in every sense of the word.

  11. Nick says:

    Not surprised at all by Charlize’s attitude. She’s gorgeous and talented but seems like she would be the cliche arrogant celebrity if you encountered her. Also “owning it” shouldn’t be an excuse either.

    I love Tia. She might be considered B or C list by some (mostly white) people but the cast of Sister, Sister will always hold a special place in my heart. And her and Tamera seem like down to earth, sweethearts too.

    • break says:

      which one was on “the game”? gotta admit, it’s a guilty pleasure.

      • Mel M says:

        It was Tia. I like them both, I watched thier reality show for a little while and I LOVED sister, sister.

    • MCraw says:

      Lol very true!

    • Danskins says:

      I still have an autographed pic of Tia from an ad campaign that she did for my company a few years back that I still cherish and keep framed on my work desk.

      From what I remember during the campaign, Tia was known for being consistently professional and hardworking. Plus she’s gorgeous and has a good head on her shoulders despite growing up in Hollyweird. She and her sister retained great professional attitudes in an industry known for not being very welcoming to women of color.

      CT could learn A LOT from Tia.

  12. InvaderTak says:

    At least she has the guts to call CT out on it. Most people wouldnt have said anything.

    • elo says:

      I agree, props to Tia. I used to really like Charlize, I can’t respect someone who treats people badly.

  13. raindrop says:

    Aww, I miss Sister, Sister! The Mowry girls (women) both seem cool.

    • lisa2 says:

      I really like them. Started as young girls in a crazy business. No scandals, arrest, drugs or rehab
      . So nothing bad to say about either of these Mowry women.

      She wasn’t playing the OH I’m on Sister Sister.. she saw a fellow celeb she admired and spoke to her.

      Charlize is on my ever growing Sh-t list as of today. And you don’t come off of that list easily.

  14. Kate2 says:

    I’m disappointed she’s such a bitch. I’ve really liked her in a lot of things, I thought North Country and Young Adult were amazing. She’s also great friends with Jeremy Renner, who has a rep as a wonderful guy. I’m sure he is still a great guy, its just disappointing he is friends with someone who treats people so badly. Oh well. I still like him… 😉

    • may234 says:

      I don’t know, it doesn’t bother me. Like the author her said, she doesn’t pretend to be a sweet flower. Unlike that “27 dresses” also very pretty actress Charlize isn’t crying “I don’t know why people don’t like me!”

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I LOVED Young Adult. Lovedlovedloved.

      I’m a bit disappointed about her being bitchy but more disappointed about her banging Penn.

    if she hates having to deal with muggles so much, then why not have a private spin class? or buy the bike and get a video of someone yelling at you to PEDAL HARDER.

  16. Tiffany27 says:

    But who doesn’t know Charlize is an a**hole?

    • Hissyfit says:

      This. She’s a mega bitch. No surprise here.

    • marjalane says:

      Bitch or no bitch, she lost any credibility she had when she decided Sean Penn was a good idea. Cliche or not, you get known by the company you keep.

  17. Abby says:

    SIster Sister forever! Fun fact: The sisters invented a breastfeeding supplement called Milky.

    • T.C. says:

      What does the supplement do?

      • sigh((s)) says:

        I would imagine it helps to increase your milk supply? There are certain herbs and supplements you can take for that. Also to help you not get clogged/mastitis.

      • Abby says:

        Yes, it’s supposed to help your milk supply. I haven’t taken it–my supply is good–but I thought that was interesting! And yeah, there are quite a few supplements out there. Maybe this one tastes good?

  18. Hotpockets says:

    I knew someone who met Chalize in person, she came into the boutique they were working at a few years ago. Apparently, she was unrecognizable in person. She is no where close to the the bombshell in photographs, very average looking, with badly sun damaged skin and fried hair. They said that she didn’t recognize her and that it wasn’t until her co-worker told her who she was that she put two and two together.

    • may234 says:

      We all look different when we’re just out and about. I’m not surprised she was unrecognizable.

      • Sozual says:

        OR maybe she just spends too much time in the sun. In the pic above you can see the aging very clearly. She is not Marilyn Monroe or any of the other bombshells out there.

      • may234 says:

        @Sozual MM spend a lot of time boozing and taking sleeping pills, so she isn’t exactly a perfect beauty

      • RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

        @may234 MM is a perfect beauty in photographs, unlike our bi*ch friend CT.

      • Sozual says:

        @ RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle LMAO

        @ may234

        I am a black girl from the south. I have always loved MM in movies. A few years ago I started watching documentary films about her and listening to her interviews. She went through a whole lot as a kid. An orphan, was molested as a child, and she suffered from bipolar disorder. It was inherited from her Mother. She was a talented actress, someone who spoke openly about the Civil Rights issues with blacks, and when in an abusive relationship she left the guy (Joe DiMaggio).

        As a female, a black person, and someone going to school for public policy….I love the lady. She was not perfect, but no one is. Neither was Audrey Hepburn, but love her too. Sorry, but Charlize is overrated all around. A good looking lady and a good actress, but not great.

  19. may234 says:

    Sounds like Tia was trying to get to the C+ or B+ list with this story. I’ve never even heard of her before.

    • Candy Love says:

      Google her.

    • Sooloo says:

      The fact that you’ve never heard of it doesn’t automatically relegate her to C-list…

      • may234 says:

        Or it does, as this article has already informed us.

      • Sooloo says:

        Of course, because this is the be-all and end-all of all celebrity news and information. GMAFB. The world is bigger than one tiny article. You should really get out there more often and stop being so narrow-minded.

      • Sozual says:

        AMEN Sooloo. There are brilliant entertainers around the world and not being on a gossip site just means you are not known for being scandalous.

      • may234 says:

        @Sooloo or perhaps you should tear yourself away from your TV and step outside? You obviously know your celebrities from A to Z so well, time to venture into a different domain. Like go to a museum maybe? For a change.

    • Mena says:

      Tia is an A list star in the African American community. There are articles about the Mowry women in Essence, Jet and urban blogs on the regular. So yeah…she doesn’t need to say hello to some blonde celebrity to get onto any A list. And maybe she thought the bitch rumors about Charlize were just that, rumors. Glad she put this rude broad on blast.

  20. Mia4S says:

    Eh, maybe because she’s never pretended to be all sweetness I can only shrug at this. For this story there are also stories like taking part in a comedy sketch for a South African awards show with Sharlto Copley and having the film crew into her house for tea. Nobody is just one thing.

    Plus I can’t help but think watching your mother shoot your abusive father to death at 15 might leave you a bit…off.

    • Ugonna Wosu says:

      good point on your last line.

    • MCraw says:

      Oh wow. I never knew that.

    • Candy Love says:

      That sounds like and excuses for her crapy behavior.

      • Mia4S says:

        Not an excuse. She should be courteous. I’m just pointing out that given how many actors/actresses are known to be pretty awful to others, I have a touch more compassion for her given her background. However, I’d be more compassionate if I knew she had sought help.

      • Elle Kaye says:

        Mia45, considering the circumstances, I do not understand how she can be with an abusive person like Penn. You spoke of having more compassion if she got help…with everything available to her, I don’t undertand why she wouldn’t seek treatment.

        I grew up with fairly abusive people, and it made me more compassionate towards others. I treat people the way I want to be treated.

    • Candy Love says:


    • lucy2 says:

      I get the impressions she’s great with the people she knows and likes, but kind of miserable to everyone else. Maybe she is just guarded, which would be understandable, but no reason to be rude.
      I just had a local small business owner be pretty rude to me yesterday, for no reason at all. It was like I interrupted her day by being a customer. It’s amazing how some people don’t realize or don’t care how they come off.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Kind of what I was thinking when everyone’s on here talking about karma. I think karma already got Charlize a long time ago.

      Doesn’t excuse bitchiness, but let’s not erase the trauma of her childhood in favor of emphasizing the Mean Bitch narrative.

    • Kim1 says:

      GMAB Many people have witnessed domestic violence including murder.That is no excuse for being rude.

  21. TJ says:

    When become all of sudden Charlize a villain? Does she is being portrayed more and more like this, because she hits 40 soon, and this is the tiime, when pretty actresses usually must go away, or must took a few major steps back in Hollywood?

    She was this ‘Old Hollywood Glamour Woman’ just a few years back who was always praised, and nowdays I read article after article from many “sources” that’s she’s mean, she has a cocaine habit, etc. I saw the same shit being thrown to many other lead actresses around her age in the past 10-15 years, and it seems to me it’s Charlize’s turn now…

    I don’t know if any of these rumors are true or false, but I found a little interesting/strange that all of sudden she is being bashed very badly in gossip circles…

    • eliza says:

      It is not recent. Stories have circulated in the industry about her for years. Her looks and movies have made people ignore the reality about her.

      I do not know IF she is as bad as rumors say BUT some on the set of Young Adult claimed Theron is a lot like the character she played in that movie.

    • MCraw says:

      TJ, that may have something to do with the fact that, after a couple of decades of this protected/closeted bad attitude, people are just sick of her. They have no reason to defend her or anyone else who overstayed their bitchiness to be openly welcome. Age may be a factor in why the tide turns on them, but when a woman has a nasty attitude, youth is factored as an excuse for that behavior. Being an old bitch is the worst thing for a single aging beauty by society’s standards. The point? Just be nice. It doesn’t hurt to killem with kindness. No one wins or wants to fight against an angry old woman (old being over 35 to many). Even if her attitude is justified, people don’t have/want to deal with that after a certain point. And will trash you in the process. I’ve never heard anything like this about Meryll Streep and others known for good attitudes.

    • FingerBinger says:

      @TJ She’s dating someone people don’t like so it’s open season on her. Also, she’s pretty so it’s just another reason to hate her.

      • Becks says:

        Um, maybe people hate her bbecause she’s an entitled asshole?!?
        Also, she’s not that pretty. I’ve seen her in person, and she’s average looking, nothing special. She has great legs, I will give her that. She is nothing to write home about, the truth is L.A. is full of beautiful women who lool way better than her!

      • FingerBinger says:

        So I guess you’re on of those women in L.A. that looks better than her? Girl please.

      • Becks says:

        @Fingerbinger, the way you blindly worship this woman is quite disturbing. She’s not a goddess, it’s all smoke and mirrors honey.

  22. Racer says:

    There is a fine line between bitch and misreable.

    • kri says:

      I’m thinking the karmic trade-off of celebrity, fame, and money is that you have a really good chance of being miserable despite all you have. Also, it appears that you are trapped in a high school -like environment with really rigid cliques. When a 30+ year old acts like a c^nty evil cheerleader to a less popular girl…oh, man. Go get you some Pennis, CT. You two deserve each other.

  23. eliza says:

    I saw the Mowry sisters reality show once or twice and they seem like genuinely nice women.

    As far as Theron. I have never liked her as an actress or in interviews. I like her even less in recent months with her ridiculous comments and Penn ties.

    I never undetstood why most important ignored the long history of her icy bitchiness that has circulated in the industry since her early days in film. It does not surprise me to hear yet another tale of her “I am superior to you” attitude.

  24. ashley says:

    I dislike rude people,whether you’re rich or poor. Now i see why penn and her are compatible.

  25. dorothy says:

    If this is the way Theron behaves, them I think her and Sean Penn are perfect together. They can be a-holes together.

  26. Pepsi Presents...Coke says:

    Her big discovery came when some scout or other noticed her screaming at a bank teller. I’m not sure why so many people are so willing to make excuses for someone who would almost certainly treat them like garbage. I’m not interested in what she ‘owns’ that’s just rude.

  27. Mike says:

    These celebrities are living in their own world where they think they are far more important than they actually are. I like Charlize as an actress but when she is gone I will find somebody else to replace her with no problem. She should make the effort to be nice to everybody.

  28. Leaflet says:

    Tia said hello to this repugnant woman that shows her humility. I doubt like hell that Ria was like, do you know who I am? Again, the girl is down to earth. This cements my dislike for Charlize. I don’t care about the “not pretending to be a sweetheart”. And Charlize don’t look that dang good. Tia and Tamara look away better than her, and their humbled. Charlize’s reaction to Tia saying hello the: “Oh God” and rolling her eyes tells me that it is a lot more than bitchiness in Charlize’s character, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a hint of prejudice in that reaction. It’s happened to me more than once. It’s that smug face when your brunette friends introduce you to some of their parents. Tia and Tamara are not the ones that would make up such a dramatic random @ss story. These are well behaved women. Charlize…not so much. I believe that Charlize is only nice to other well known celebs. Hell, Charlize should be humbled that she even has fans to support her stuff. I will not see another production involving Charlize. She probably is on dope like I suspected, and that’s probably why she gets along with Penn so well, lol. Smh.

    • Nev says:

      Yep, the not pretending to be America’s Sweetheart. Hahahaha big cop out. She’s a BITCH. Cold. Snobby. Elitist. GROSS.

  29. Jedi says:

    All i can hear is Miss Rosa’s voice…”so rude, that one”

  30. Talie says:

    Sounds like something Chelsea Handler would do, which makes sense why they are friends.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      Handler is huge friend with Sandra Bullock who is herself friend with Charlize Theron

      • Kate2 says:

        I have a friend who has a story with a similar outcome as this one, only the subject is Sandra Bullock. Passed each other in a hallway backstage at a concert, my friend said “Hi”, apparently SB turned her nose up and walked away without a word. I wasn’t there but my friend still gripes about it all these years later (this happened like 20 years ago) and has HATED SB ever since. Now, I like SB but my friend isn’t a liar, a bit of a drama queen, but not a liar, so take that for what you will.

  31. Skins says:

    She still has to wake up next to Sean Penn in the morning. UGH!

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      That’s punishment in and of itself.
      Says a lot about her that she would date him though. Gotta wonder what’s going on there.

      • Lady MacBeth (Hiddles F) says:

        I guess they are both terrible people. It sounds like A. Kutcher and M. Kunis, they are together because they are both two assholes.

  32. Josefa says:

    Not making an excuse for her behavior, but I’m not exactly mad. As the author put it, she’s never pretended to be the biggest sweetheart in Hollywood.

    As with Melissa Joan Heart and Alicia Silverstone, I have a soft spot for Tia and Tamara for being my childhood heroes. I get excited whenever I see them on TV, even if it’s a god awful movie with a cast full of C-listers.

  33. PixieWitch says:

    I think even I would say “oh my god” if tia said hi to me…

  34. Raised Brow says:

    Clearly, not many fans of the BET show “The Game” on this thread. Well, ladies and gents, Tia Mowry, along with her twin sis Tamara, is a consistently employed black actress in Hollywood. That, in itself is cause for applause. Google if you must. 😛

    • Nev says:


    • AlmondJoy says:

      I am SO late to this thread, but THANK YOU. 👏👏👏👏👏 Maybe in the world of many here, Tia is a “nobody.” She may not be a big movie star but she’s had consistent work since Sister, Sister. She was on The Game, a hit show, for years. She also has her own show called Instant Mom. I believe its on Nick. My sister and I have been huge fans of she and her sister for years. In the black community, she’s a star.

      Now on to the matter at hand… it doesnt cost anything to be kind and respectful to all you meet. It’s sad that Charlize feels she’s too important to do that.

    • Sozual says:

      I love THE GAME!!!!! It is still good, but I miss Tia and the guy that played her husband on it

      • AlmondJoy says:

        Sozual, you’re talking about Pooch Hall! He’s so handsome! I miss he and Tia on the show as well. It’s not the same without them.

      • Sozual says:


        Alright! I would have googled him soon enough, cause he is a cutie. Those two so funny. That whole crew had it. With those two gone it isn’t the same. : (

    • Leaflet says:

      @Raised Brow,
      Yes, Tia is a working actress, and a good one at that. I’m glad Tia spoke up about it. To think I used to love Charlize after she did Monster, not anymore. Charlize has no idea that the more these kinds of stories get out the trimmer her audience will get. “Being a b!tch and owning it” isn’t acceptable to everyone.

    • Jayna says:

      I know.. Those twins have been working hard for years and are great girls. They could have turned out like Lindsay Lohan but didn’t.

  35. holly hobby says:

    I always knew she was a witch and this is a great example. She and ham face are perfect for each other. Robin Wright was way too nice so he needs someone who’s ugly on the inside just like him.

    No wonder she never met her potential. She never carried her career up to the next level after that Oscar.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      According to Lainey,Robin Wright is a pretentious bitch who matches well with her younger Sean Penn boyfriend ( FTN : some years ago,Wright was at Deauville fest for Pipa Lee and she was adorable and professional with every one)

      • holly hobby says:

        I remember Robin Wright from her Santa Barbara days (the soap opera). She started out sweet. Then she met ham face and apparently some of it rubbed off? Anyway she’s sweet again! Yay!

  36. holly hobby says:

    Don’t forget, she is South African. Tia is black. You do the math. That is all.

    • Mira says:

      Oh, please.

    • FingerBinger says:

      I’m doing the math. She’s a South African with an adopted black son. BTW Tia is biracial. What’s your point?

      • holly hobby says:

        Well apparently no one remembers this quote she gave:

        “In the October 14, 1996 issue of People magazine, Charlize Theron praises apartheid and states “there is no more hope for white South Africans” now that apartheid is over. ”

        I’m old enough to remember this because some people made a stink at the time but it didn’t reach that far since at the time, she was a nobody starlet.

        Yes I’m very aware she has a black son but that doesn’t mean she isn’t a racist. It’s akin to racists denying that they are because they have “black friends.”

      • FingerBinger says:

        So you have no point. It sounds like you just want her to be a racist. So it fits your narrative.

      • holly hobby says:

        Whatever your reality is you are welcome to it

        It is written in the press.

        Do you know what apartheid is and what it means?

    • Illyra says:

      I don’t like Charlize, but… nah. Sounds like reaching to me.

  37. Mira says:

    This would have been SO much better if Charlize did that to Jackee Harry (the twins’ mom in Sister, Sister). You KNOW she would’ve had the best comeback face and comment.

  38. Cerulean Skygirl says:

    Is it just me, or is Charlize starting to look like Princess Charlene of Monaco? They both started out bright eyed and sweet, and over time they got that “dead eyes” look (though Charlene has an excuse being married to that freakazoid Albert) and “the world is beneath me” demeanor.

  39. joan says:

    It just clicked — the reason Charlize is with Penn is because Fassbinder was immune to her charms.

    She’s on the rebound, with someone who DID want her.

  40. Les says:

    What Charlize really wanted to say was ‘Who is this peasant’? Replying with a simple one syllable “Hi” takes a lot less effort than rolling your eyes and saying OMG. Some people are just pathetic. I see why she and Sean date.

  41. Lisa says:

    I got bitchfaced by Charlize once. We were both late into a play. So I’m standing there, soaked in sweat, mascara running and she just looked at me and made an euw face. Which was quite fun! #myarmsarefatterthanherlegs she’s very skinny

  42. Lisa says:

    ^it was also the day I met Benedict Cumberbatch so y’know!!!!

  43. Jackson says:

    So, not just bitch face, but straight up bitch? Yeah, that sounds about right for her.

  44. Kells says:

    I was on an elevator and a guy got on so I said hello and this ass didn’t say anything. I wanted to go Solange on him. Instead I just said a prayer….that the elevator would get stuck with him on it when I got off.

  45. tessy says:

    I was going to say it looks like she’s taking her garden gnome out for a walk but that wouldn’t be nice so I take it back.

  46. FingerBinger says:

    Some of these comments are so funny. No here ever been rude or bitchy in their entire life? I’ve been rude to people. People have been rude to me. It happens. Charlize didn’t feel like being bothered by a complete stranger and made it known. So apparently that makes her a horrible person. Give me a break.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yeah but celebs always get a rash of shit for being rude. Charlize is no different.

      I was going to say that these commenters wouldn’t last a day in Boston. Rude is a way of life out here. Frankly, I’ll take cold people who don’t talk to me over strangers that try to chat it up. Ain’t got time for that.

      Leave me alone, don’t talk to me, and don’t bother me. Just let me go about my life.
      I have enough friends already, I don’t need new ones.

      • FingerBinger says:

        I live in New York and it’s the same thing here. I guess Charlize was supposed to give her a big old bear hug and start chatting like they were girlfriends.

      • Mena says:

        Oh, please. It’s not the same thing at all. I’m from NYC, and the whole Northern rude thing is exaggerated. Most people will at least acknowledge a hello. Charlize was nasty and you seem hell bent on defending her rudeness, who knows why. And why would a hello mean instant friendship, you need to get out more and socialize.

      • Tdub30 says:

        I’m a southerner through and through and don’t want to engage most days, however that doesn’t extend to simply being courteous. It costs a person nothing to be polite and it’s unfortunate that you seem to agree that it’s okay for her to be rude.

      • andypandy says:

        Im not the friendliest person in the world but a simple nod or a hey (don’t even have to smile ) with eyes straight ahead to signal that you don’t want to engage seems like a whole lot less effort than an eye rolling OMG
        Its not like your gonna start chit chatting about your next OBGYN appointment
        Nope That rudeness not called for

      • Josefa says:

        Took the words out of my mouth. I don’t know in which universe greeting someone back is the start of a friendship. When a stranger greets me, I greet back. If they start chatting I politely tell them I’m in a hurry. You can be unfriendly and still be polite and respectful.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      I’m enough shy and i follow my mum’s advice “don’t talk to the strangers”

    • jwoolman says:

      They were in a spin class together. Nobody goes to a spin class expecting everybody else to totally ignore them. People are friendly, they say hello to each other. She didn’t have a big sign on her back saying “Don’t Talk to Me- I Bite”. Tia was not out of line at all. Charlize needs to stop going to classes if she can’t stand such normal friendliness from the peons.

    • Serenity says:

      FingerBinger and TheOrginalKitten, I have to disagree.
      Of course there’s times when all of us don’t feel like chatting with strangers but if someone says hi and smiles at me, I don’t care how bad my day has been, I always manage a hi and smile back (and I’ve found that when I automatically smile back, that actually ends up making me feel better)

      It’s not about having a bad day or such. It’s about being polite and displaying common courtesy. It’s having manners and I feel it’s a shame that more people don’t feel this way.

    • Pirouette says:

      Yeah, this is nothing. Sometimes you just don’t feel like being the nice, pleasant, accommodating woman that you are supposed to be.

      • Danskins says:

        This is totally not about feminism – that is reaching.

        This is about the lack of having common courtesy for a fellow human which is a universal issue.

        I can’t believe the lengths some are going to on this board to defend disgusting behavior.

  47. Ag-UK says:

    Sorry she is tired !!! . First it’s a gym class and if a “normal” person was in a class smiled and said hello you would at least acknowledge they did it. I don’t really care for B Cooper my friend did that class in Ny she knew him ages ago he saw her hugged her and chatted for a few minutes. She’s crazy didn’t want to shower after! Life is too short to be an asshole.

  48. Jenny12 says:

    Wow, she and Sean Penn are perfect for each other. It doesn’t matter who the person is, just smile and say hi.

  49. Jayna says:

    Tia is a nice girl. She’s not the type to make up stuff. But it seems like something is missing from the story. Did she say more than “hi”?

  50. G says:

    She is such an insufferable bitch now. That is all.

  51. Chris says:

    Sean Penn is a progressive activist and sworn enemy of conservatives. So it’s no wonder that the conservative media has ramped up the bad PR for Charlize since she hooked up with Sean. I never base my opinions of people on tawdry media reports. We report. You decide. But we decide what to report.

  52. aquarius64 says:

    Charlize is living up to the nasty piece of work rep she has. She’s getting up there in age so there aren’t too many roles for her (except mom ones). Meryl Streep she’s not (and never will be) and she can’t open a movie; so she can’t afford to be nasty to people.

    • Chris says:

      Meryl Streep she’s not? Anyone would suffer in a comparison to Meryl so that hardly proves anything. However Charlize was brilliant in Monster and proved that’s she’s more than just a pretty face. Also having Sean around to give her acting advice won’t hurt either as he’s one of the best in the business. She’ll be around for a while yet.

  53. jwoolman says:

    Tia and her twin sister were amazing on Sister, Sister. They were 13 when it started. I remember watching the first show because I like the actors playing the parents (Tim Reid and Jacquee (sp?). Hadn’t heard of the kids before. They owned the screen in every scene, they were great from the very beginning in a non-obnoxious way. I always thought movie remakers should have cast them in an updated Parent Trap- real twins who could truly act and who were eminently likeable. I saw them in some Disney movies when they were probably young adults and they still had it. So even though they may not be big names to people like Charlize, they are definitely fine actors. Given the same opportunities, they would easily outshine most other actresses today. Except in tabloid hits, they don’t really get those…

  54. morgane says:

    I hate when I randomly encounter my boss’s wife at work. I used to say ‘hi’ or smile at her and she would ignore me. Nowadays I ignore her, not worth it

  55. Aila says:

  57. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    Shes a massive b**ch. Always has been always will be. So glad someone called her out on it. Bravo Tia. Thank you!
    Charlize just be grateful for your rare privilage in life and just be gracious. Someday, when your old, youll wish someone will remember you. Humanity. Get some.

  58. chrissie says:

    Charlize is nasty. Yuck!

  59. Dany says:

    I wonder if this is just some kind of ploy and defence mechanism used by stars. When you´re famous everyone wants to talk to you and for most fans an “hi” is the beginning of an endless worshipping tirade. It´s not as if just one person a day says hi… i bet Tia wasn´t the only one in the spinning class trying to talk to Theron. When you´re famous 100 people a day try this and ignoring people is the way to shup them up before they start to blather…

    I bet Charlize didnt realize she was another actress, probably thought she was some fan that was going to bother her while she’s in the middle of a workout. I feel like this might have been a different story if it was a different setting.

    Charlize is #1 guess for this Lainey blind…

    “For years I’ve been saying that she is such a bitch. Like, terrifying. And humourless, unless you’re famous. But on a red carpet? If she’s sneering at you? There’s venom. Behind that cool, tall beauty, she’s vicious. Now, maybe I understand why. Turns out she likes her cocaine.”

    The Mowry girls are absolutely beautiful.

    Jumping off the Charlize bandwagon. You don’t treat my girl Tia like that. Boo on you and your geriatic boyfriend. Boooooooo!

  65. Realist says:

    Theron’s days are numbered. Has she done a movie worth mentioning lately? She’ll get into the “has been” category soon enough.

      Tia is already in the “has been” category. What movies has Tia been in worth mentioning? Oh wait she hasn’t been in any movies.

    Like so many have said..I don’t care who it is that just said “hi” to her.
    If this is her attitude towards how to treat people in a normal interaction by acting like a 13 year old middle school girl–makes me wonder what kind of values or what she is imparting to her son.

    Crap person usually equals crap mom.

    Charlize has always been a mega bitch, ever since her modelling days, she and Sean deserve each other. Hotels hate having her stay because her demands are so excessive, like demanding they close down their spa or private beach to other guests when she is staying there. Most of them tell her to go somewhere else but a few will accept her crap.

  68. Kosmos says:

    I have no respect for bitchy stuck-up actresses. I didn’t really know about Charlize’s reputation, but if she is this rude and can’t seem to respond kindly to someone, I’m no longer a fan. Too bad they have to turn into thinking they’ve become too big for other people, because they’re actually just LITTLE people like everyone else.
