Charlize Theron calls Steven Seagal “overweight” and “not very nice to women.”

During a recent interview, Charlize Theron called out famed actor Steven Seagal for being “overweight” and not as good at martial arts as he claims.

The actress, who has appeared in several action films including “Atomic Blonde,” “The Fate of the Furious,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and the upcoming film “The Old Guard,” appeared for a virtual interview on “The Howard Stern Show” where, unlike when she performs stage combat for her roles, she didn’t hold back in criticizing the 68-year-old “Under Siege” actor.

“At night, I’ll go online to watch fighters or watch people fight, and you always come across that odd Seagal video of him ‘fighting’ in Japan, but he isn’t,” she explained to Yahoo Entertainment when discussing researching for her roles. “He’s just extremely overweight and pushes people. He’s obese and can’t even fight… look it up, it’s ridiculous. He’s shoving them in the face. It’s a complete setup.”

She justified her harsh remarks by pointing out that the actor was rumored to be challenging to work with, particularly for women.

“I don’t mind talking s-t about him because he’s not very nice to women, so f-k you!” she exclaimed to the host.

Seagal’s representatives did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Several women have accused Seagal of sexual misconduct and assault. TheWrap reported in 2018 that Regina Simons, an extra in his 1994 film “On Deadly Ground,” accused him of raping her at a wrap party at his Beverly Hills home when she was 18. At the time, Dutch former model Faviola Dadis claimed she filed a report with the Los Angeles Police Department accusing the actor of groping her during an audition in 2002.

Portia de Rossi, who co-starred with Theron in “Arrested Development,” tweeted about her experience working with Seagal in 2017, writing: “My final audition for a Steven Segal movie took place in his office. As he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants, he told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen. I dashed out the door and called my agent. ‘Well, I didn’t know if he was your type,’ she replied, unfazed.”

Several other women have made similar accusations against the actor.
