Charlize Theron Invited President Obama To A Strip Club — Watch “Kimmel” Video!
Charlize Theron got so nervous when meeting President Obama that she wound up offering to take him to a strip club, the actress admitted on Monday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Watch her tell the hilarious story in the video below!
Theron revealed she was backstage when Obama made an appearance on the late-night show back in March. When Kimmel asked what it was like meeting the President, Theron responded, “This is terrible, Jimmy.” After he inquired as to what was so “terrible,” she explained, “I have this thing that happens when I get nervous where I will say something really inappropriate. It’s like Tourette’s in a weird way… I was really nervous because he had waited to meet with me and everything had stopped around his world to meet me. It was just a lot of pressure.”
Theron continued, “He was so complimentary about you, [talking about] how grateful he was to be on the show, and how he felt like by being on the show he was reaching a [younger] demographic. And then there was this pause and I didn’t know what to say. All I could come up with was, ‘Well if you’re looking for a different demographic, I can take you to a strip club.'”
Theron, recounting the story, laughed and blushed about her mortifying comment to the leader of the free world, as the audience cheered. Kimmel then responded, “And he didn’t go? I would’ve gotten right onto Air Force One and said ‘Drop us off at the nearest strip club immediately!'” Theron laughed, adding, “Michelle Obama is gonna kill me.” Kimmel then amusingly observed, “If you had said that to President Clinton, you’d probably still be at that strip club.” Check out the full video below!
