A-list Bachelor fan! Charlize Theron gushed over how “excited” she is for Peter Weber‘s season — which premieres on January 6 — during the 2020 Golden Globes on January 5. Same, girl! Fans started shipping the actress and Bachelor Nation stud after they had a flirty Instagram exchange, but she’s looking forward to watching him find the woman of his dreams.
“I know a good show when I see one, yes … I’m excited,” she confessed during an interview with Access Hollywood on the red carpet. “I hope he finds the woman of his dreams, but do not let me down: I need some drama, I need some tears — I heard there was an injury, I’m already excited.”
Fans gushed over Charlize, 44, and the 28-year-old’s adorable social media interaction on December 29. The Atomic Bomb star shared a photo of herself standing in front of a poster that was promoting season 24. It featured the leading man holding a rose and read, “Expect Turbulence.”
“Turbulence I like,” Charlize cheekily captioned the black-and-white photo. In response, Peter shared a similar photo posing with Charlize’s J’adore Dior poster ad and captioned it, “Turbulence can be fun.” Say no more!
Some people took this as major flirting and even theorized that Peter slid into Charlize’s DMs to shoot his shot. However, the Long Shot actress shut down that quickly during an interview with Entertainment Tonight on January 2.
“No,” she responded when asked if the pilot private messaged her. “I don’t even know really what a DM is, let’s be honest. Maybe yes? I don’t think so. No. I think it’s all in fun.”
One of the biggest question marks surrounding Peter’s season is his reunion with former Bachelorette star Hannah Brown. The Alabama beauty is shown in teasers not only getting out of the limo on night one but having an intimate conversation with the pilot where he seemingly asks her to join the cast. Show host Chris Harrison confessed that the exes definitely had some unfinished business.
“I think it’s something that needed to be dealt with, the relationship. I think it’s a relationship that didn’t have a clean, clear break. I think, and some underlying feelings that maybe they thought they had both dealt with,” the 48-year-old admitted to on December 16. “I knew once they saw each other, they probably hadn’t really dealt with them all, so I think it’s a hurdle that we needed to clear before we moved forward.”
Time will tell, but we know Charlize will be watching!
