What Did Obama Say When Charlize Theron Invited Him To A Strip Club?

“I get so nervous that I just say something really inappropriate,” said Theron before revealing how she was left tongue-tied in front of the 44th President of the United States.

If you imagine yourself being tongue-tied while meeting President Barack Obama, you’re not alone. Charlize Theron feels the same way.

The Mad Max actress recalled an incident on Jimmy Kimmel Live when she met the president backstage during an earlier appearance on the show.

As Obama told Theron he enjoyed appearing on a program where he could reach a “younger demographic,” she came up with a rather awkward suggestion.

"…Then there was this pause, and I didn't know what to say. All I could come up with was, 'Well, if you're looking for a different demographic, I can take you to a strip club.'"

Fortunately for Theron, Obama was "nothing but lovely" about the faux pas.

"Then I couldn’t sleep for four weeks because every time I close my eyes I went ‘Oh my God, I said that! Oh my God, why did I say that?!” Theron lamented.
