Charlize Theron Doesn’t Seem To Like Steven Seagal

Bombshell ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Following the 4th of July festivities, realizing that we have still several more weeks before theaters reopen (AMC on July 31, Regal now on July 30, sigh), cleaning up spent fireworks reminds me of something I saw earlier this week.

Charlize Theron is dialing up the diss on Steven Seagal.

The Mad Max: Fury Road star then justified her criticism of Seagal, 68, noting, “I have no problem talking s— about him because he’s not very nice to women so f— you!”

Charlize Theron Says ‘Overweight’ Steven Seagal ‘Can Barely Fight’: ‘He’s Not Very Nice to Women’

I enjoyed some of Seagal’s earliest few films, but haven’t seen an action film starring him as the lead in a long time that was worth recommending, in some cases not even worth watching.

Look, we all slow down as we age. Some will gain weight, some things sag, aging isn’t a pretty proposition. I’ve personally looked about 20 years older than I am for the last 10+ years, although because of my physical job, I’m in very good physical shape. Steven Seagal, however, looks like he went through the Star Trek transporter and had his 80s appearance and body fused with the present. I don’t think he should be in action films as the action hero in this physical condition. He never was a great actor, even in his prime, uttering lines like he’s whispering and gargling glass. Add to that, he seemed even a bit creepy at times.

Take Katherine Heigl who was a teenager when she starred in the Under Seige sequel (which I sort of enjoyed, despite it being a pretty bad movie). Listen to what she says about working with Seagal and remember, she had just turned 16:

“You know, Katie, I’ve got girlfriends your age,” Seagal said, according to Heigl on the last day of shooting.
“Isn’t that illegal?” Heigl replied.
“They don’t seem to mind,” Seagal said.
Heigl called out, “Mom!”

And then Jimmy Kimmel shows a picture with Seagal’s hand on Heigl’s breast with her mom wearing sunglasses in the background.

Yikes. Just not a good optic. I don’t know if it’s stranger that people are laughing in the audience over this or that Kimmel even brings this up. The whole video interview doesn’t make me laugh, it just creeps me out.

Related to Theron’s angsty comments? I don’t know.

Meanwhile, Charlize Theron has been in several recent movies that were not only worth watching, but at least one that I’ve recommended. So, one is relevant in 2020, the other was relevant 20 years ago.

Steven Seagal Not ‘Above The Law’ In Crypto Currency Debacle

Steven Seagal has been in some good and very bad movies. Apparently he was also once the “Brand Ambassador” for a crypto currency company. Unfortunately, he used social media to promote the currency which is a violation of securities rules and regulations.

The company he represents was issued a cease and desist and Segal left the position thereafter. Now, it appears that Seagal has settled with the SEC over the situation.

Seagal “failed to disclose he was promised $250,000 in cash and $750,000 worth of B2G tokens in exchange for his promotions,” which included posts plugging Bitcoiin2Gen and its initial coin offering in 2018, the SEC says. “Bitcoiin” is not a typo.

This applies to everybody, regardless of your website audience size, traffic, social media followers, etc: don’t do this. Ever.

Especially those of you reading this with any type of internet or real “celebrity” status and are using affiliate links and other advertising to your followers, always give the proper disclosure if you’re paid and never, ever, ever recommend securities or investments. That’s just asking to have the feds come knocking.

You’d think Steven Seagal who spent time as a law enforcement officer (cough – Lawman — cough) would realize that this activity was prohibited. Maybe that’s what the SEC thought, also.

One thing I’ll say about Seagal not related to this case. He doesn’t look as much like the Steven Seagal we all remember from the 80s and 90s. Hey, very few of us do, but in 2016 Seagal starred in six movies. Some actors and actresses are lucky to be 1-2 per year, but he was in six.

He was in three movies in 2019. None so far in 2020. Seagal’s first few movies were among his best: Above The Law, Under Siege, Hard To Kill, Marked For Justice and he remains an actor I’m somewhat interested in, but will admit it’s been a long time since I’ve seen anything he’s been in that I enjoyed. Any reader recommendations of Seagal movies in the last say 10 years that he’s been in that are good?
