Back in 1996, actress Teri Hatcher was a big name movie star who many people were dying to work with, while Charlize Theron was just an up and coming star, looking to make a name for herself in the acting industry. The two stars worked together on the movie 2 Days in the Valley, which featured a very impressive fight scene and now Charlize has revealed how she actually punched Teri in the face while shooting the scene.
It was whilst doing a piece with W magazine, that Theron made the revelation, saying, "2 Days in the Valley - Rotten Tomatoes gave it number 17 on the list of 20 Greatest Fight Scenes Ever. The fight was between me and Teri Hatcher. I hit her really bad. I think she was bruised. And because it was Teri Hatcher, who was a star, and I was this bleached-blonde-Amazonian, catsuit-wearing nobody who was punching her in the face, I was like a wild animal."
She then went on to add, "Back then I didn't know how to hone in my energy and I was knocking over lights. I had no concept of a set. I connected right with Teri Hatcher's face. I felt terrible about it. I had no money and sent her some cheap beer the next day. Sorry, Teri."
Next up for Charlize Theron is the upcoming new movie Atomic Blonde, which sees the actress sharing the big screen with some huge Hollywood stars including Toby Jones, Sofia Boutella, Bill Skarsgard, James McAvoy, and John Goodman. Atomic Blonde has been directed by David Leitch and, after appearing at the South by Southwest Film Festival earlier this year, the movie will open in the US on July 28, before then landing in the UK on August 9.
