Charlize Theron Was Rude to Tia Mowry at SoulCycle
Get ready for everything you thought you knew about what Tia Mowry and Charlize Theron's interactions might be like when they see each other at SoulCycle to be changed—forever.
I always imagined it like this—Tia Mowry spots Charlize Theron from across the room. Oh my god. All around them, people are SoulCycling. Tia's eyes go back to Charlize. "You're a celebrity, too," she thinks to herself. "Stay calm." It works. She strolls up confidently to Charlize and greets her with a big, understanding smile. "Hey!" Charlize looks at her and, after a pause, says, "Hello." Her eyes show no signs of recognition, no signs of understanding. Hmm. Did she know that Tia was semi-famous? Hard to say. Tia thinks better than to clarify and walks away.
Is that what you always imagined, too? Here's how it really happened—which is not too far off!—from In Touch:
"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."
HAHAHA. "Oh my god." To Tia Mowry, no less, who knows how to approach another celebrity. That is rude! And in the age of Twitter! I'm surprised that Tia Mowry didn't Tweet about it instantly. "Uh, @CharlizeAfrica—'CharlizeAfrica' btw—just rolled her eyes and said 'oh my god' to me at @soulcycle please RT." "Hey @soulcycle please ban @CharlizeAfrica she is rude please RT." "Hey @soulcycle don't you think celebs should say hi to each other, even if they are strangers? cc: @CharlizeAfrica"
