After eating copious amounts of chicken wings slathered in various degrees of hot sauce, Charlize Theron had a simple statement that reflected all of her feelings. “I hate my tongue right now,” the Oscar-winning actress said. “If I could pull it out, I would.”
That’s the kind of wish that only occurs on the Hot Ones YouTube series, via the First We Feast channel.
Before the challenge began, Theron said, “I enjoy spicy food. I definitely love spice.” A few minutes later, she would come to regret that declaration.
Before the chicken really began to burn her taste buds, Theron had some interesting thoughts on celebrities trying to make their marks in the streaming world, including the fact she was eating chicken wings on YouTube.
Said Theron: “We need an evolution to things. It’s really up to us in this industry to pay attention to that. People like watching things at home. … Anybody will tell you who works in this industry, you really want as many bums in the seat. Wherever that seat is, it really doesn’t matter. Especially if this alternative is showing us that it’s not in lack of quality, why would we not embrace that?
She concluded that answer by saying, “The hot sauce is making me smart.” Soon enough, though, it caused her nothing but pain. Watch the episode below.
