People Are Freaking Out Over How Much Charlize Theron Looks Like Megyn Kelly in 'Bombshell'

By

The trailer for Bombshell dropped today, and all anyone can talk about is how much Charlize Theron looks like Megyn Kelly. Which makes us that much more excited to see Bombshell when it comes out in December. 

The movie, which is about the women who took down Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, stars Charlize as former Fox News anchor Megyn, Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson (who sued Ailes in 2016 for sexual harassment), and Margot Robbie as fictional character Kayla Pospisil. The real Megyn Kelly made serious allegations against Ailes in her memoir, Settle for More. But back to Charlize Theron. She. Looks. Exactly. Like. Megyn. Kelly. 

How did Charlize Theron transform into Megyn Kelly?

While it's unclear whether the actress was given prosthetics or a wig, the answer to that question is probably both of those things. Charlize is never one to hold back on going all out — remember when she played serial killer Aileen Wournos in 2003's Monster? She looked completely unrecognizable.
