Megyn Kelly’s 6 year old son was very confused when he saw a pic of Charlize Theron on a poster for the movie Bombshell and he thought the actress and his mom were twins! Indeed, the two women look quite alike!
As you may know, Theron plays the journalist in the film so seeing the poster might have felt like seeing double for 6 year old Thatcher.
And Megyn thought it was super funny and cute so she took to social media to share a snap of the boy starring up at the promotional material.
In the caption, she explained the story behind it, saying that: ‘My husband @dougbrunt and I recently took our 3 kids to see the movie Frozen 2. As we walked into the theatre, our six-year-old stopped at this poster promoting another film hitting the big screen. The ad confused him as it appears to show a picture of me.’
The movie’s all about a group of women taking on Roger Ailes, the head of Fox News and the toxicity he propagated while at the network.
It stars some other huge names in the industry, including Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie!
Megyn continued her letter in the caption, explaining how she feels about the film.

My husband @dougbrunt and I recently took our three kids to see the movie “Frozen 2.” As we walked into the theatre, our 6-year-old stopped at this poster promoting another movie hitting the big screen. The ad confused him because it appears to show a picture of me. But while the movie “Bombshell” is loosely based on my experience during the sexual harassment scandal at Fox News, I have nothing to do with this film. I did not sell the rights to my story or book and only got my first look at the film once it was past the point of any possible edits, though there are certainly some I would have made. Watching this picture was an incredibly emotional experience for me, and for those with whom I saw it. Sexual harassment is pervasive in this country; it can leave scars that do not heal. My heart goes out to those who’ve gone through it, who I hope might find some comfort in this story. As for my thoughts about the film, I’ll have more soon.

Megyn admitted that it was a very emotional experience to see that poster and the trailer for the movie and teased that she’ll share her thoughts on it in more detail soon.
