Even when she was an up-and-coming actress, Charlize Theron was not a woman to be messed with!
Teri Hatcher found out the hard way, through no fault of her own.
During an interview with W magazine, the "Atomic Blonde" star recalled when she accidentally punched Teri in the face when the two filmed "2 Days in the Valley" in 1996, when Teri was a big star and the female lead.
Charlize admitted that she didn't really have discipline during their fight scene, and was acting like "a wild animal." And, although, the punches being thrown weren't supposed to actually connect, they did.
"Back then I didn't know how to hone in my energy and I was knocking over lights. I had no concept of a set," she told W. "I connected right with Teri Hatcher's face. I felt terrible about it. I had no money and sent her some cheap beer the next day. Sorry, Teri."
Teri, she said, was a bit bruised from the battle, but thankfully kept all of her teeth and no bones were broken.
Since then, Charlize is better at fight scenes, and there are plenty of them in "Atomic Blonde."
"It's like dance, and I grew up taking ballet. I love discipline," she said. "I function really well within the parameters of discipline and knowing what to do."
Teri wasn't the only woman to feel her punching power either.
"I was working in Milan as a model, and this girl got very aggressive with me at a bar," she said. "She pushed me and started talking smack, and that was it. My body just took over, and I thought, 'I didn't just do that, did I?'"
