Charlize Theron classified Steven Seagal, the action star of the 80s, as "incredibly overweight" and questioned his martial arts skills.
The actress appeared on Howard Stern's US radio show to promote her upcoming action film The Old Guard.
When asked how she was preparing for her action projects, Theron said, "At night I go online to watch fighters or see people fighting, and you always come across the strange Seagal video that he" fights "in Japan , but it really isn't.

"He's just incredibly overweight and pushing people. He's overweight and can barely fight ... look, it's ridiculous. He shoves people in the face. It's a whole setup."

She justified hurling the shadow with the On Deadly Ground actor and continued, "I have no problem talking about him because he's not very nice to women, so fuck you!"
Seagal has been accused of actresses such as Julianna Margulies, Regina Simons, Jenny McCarthy and Portia de Rossi for sexual assault and sexual harassment from the early 90s.
Most recently, British actress Rachel Grant claimed that he pulled down her top and exposed her during a foreplay.
Seagal contested the claim.

Theron continued that women who appear in action films "don't want to fight like men".
"We want to fight like we fight and find out what it looks like," she said.
"We want to fight smarter, we want to fight in a meaningful way, and we want to do it in a way that we're still part of emotional storytelling."
The Old Guard, based on the comic of the same name, finds the actress born in South Africa as the leader of a group of mercenaries who has a mysterious inability to die and has protected humanity for centuries.
It is scheduled to land on Netflix next month.
