While playing “Plead the Fifth” on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Theron was asked about a comment Tia Mowry allegedly made to In Touch in 2014 about a run-in with the Mad Max: Fury Road actress at a SoulCycle class.
“She wasn’t very nice to me. I said, ‘Hi,’ and she actually rolled her eyes and said, ‘Oh, my God,’ ” Mowry told the tabloid. “I wasn’t over-the-top. I know how to approach another celebrity. Charlize was just mean. I’m just being honest.”
Weeks later, the rumor escalated when Dish Nation reported that Theron was “so pissed off” by the story that she tried to get SoulCycle’s management to ban the Sister, Sister star.
“When the manager refused, Charlize just got angrier and said she’d go to the top to make it happen,” said an insider at the time.

Mowry herself squashed the story years ago, telling E! News that the whole thing got “blown out of proportion.”
“I do not know Charlize,” Mowry said. “I absolutely love her, she’s my ‘Woman Crush Wednesday,’ you can even see it on my Instagram!”
