(RoyalPatriot.com )- Entertainment media reported that Megyn Kelly and actress Margot Robbie met by coincidence in Utah, four years after Robbie portrayed Kelly in a movie based on her assault charges against Roger Ailes called “Bombshell.”
Kelly mentioned the experience in Deer Valley, Utah, in an Instagram post.
Kelly, 52, seemed cheerful as she took photos with Robbie, 32, who Kelly described as friendly and pleasant during the encounter.
The ex-Fox News hostess shared a snapshot of her child, 6-year-old Thatcher, gazing at the “Bombshell” poster at a movie theater.
The report explained that Margot portrays the fictitious character Kayla Pospisil in the film based on the experiences of some women employed at Fox News.
The film starred Charlize Theron as Kelly and Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson, and it was based on the true story of the harassment claims that led to Ailes’ resignation in 2016.
On her Instagram account, Kelly explained that she was not involved in the movie “Bombshell,” which is based partially on her ordeal during the harassment controversy at Fox News. She sold neither the story nor the book’s rights.
Kelly claimed that Ailes, who passed away in May 2017, engaged in harassment against her during her time at Fox News, which involved attempts to compel her to kiss his lips.
Reports showed that after leaving Fox in 2017, she made her NBC debut in June of the same year, where she was reportedly paid up to $20 million annually.
Megyn Kelly’s contract with NBC officially ended in January 2019 after she had been on the air for a year and a half amid much controversy.
Kelly explained she didn’t see a problem dressing up as a character someone liked on Halloween, as she and her friends did as kids. She supported Luann de Lesseps, star of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” when she was accused of darkening her features to dress up like Diana Ross.
After Megyn Kelly seemingly supported alleged “blackface” Halloween costumes, which resulted in a significant reaction, she apologized. The following day, NBC had decided to terminate her “Today” show tenure.
