The producers behind the upcoming Fox News reveal Bombshell and reveal that they have talked to 20 people who are connected to Fox News before they start working on the upcoming movie.
& # 39; We've all taken an oath to protect our resources & # 39 ;, star and producer Charlize Theron told The Hollywood Reporter.
& # 39; But we tried to communicate with everyone as much as possible. Yes, I just say that. & # 39;
However, Theron had no chance to talk to Megyn Kelly according to the latter's representative, while Gretchen Carlson was forbidden to speak with Fox News and former CEO Roger Ailes because of the $ 20 million settlement.
However, that confidentiality agreement did not stop Juliet Huddy, who admits sharing her story with Charles Randolph while working on the screenplay.
That would have to pay the former anchor – allegedly a six-digit exit package after she claimed that she had been sexually harassed by Bill O'Reilly – a $ 500,000 fine.
& # 39; I have lost my house. My television career burned and I couldn't get a job for more than a year, & Huddy said.
& # 39; So come after me. I do not have anything. & # 39;

Former Fox Newsers: Juliet Huddy (departed from Megyn Kelly) received a six-figure sum from Fox News after Bill O & # 39; accusing Reilly of sexual harassment, forcing her to sign an NDA
Silenced: Gretchen Carlson (above) says she was upset because she couldn't tell her story to producers while they were developing the film because of her NDA
Carlson says she was upset by the fact that she could not tell her story to producers while they were developing the film.
& # 39; It is really frustrating that because of my NDA, I cannot participate in any of these projects & # 39 ;, Carlson notes.
& # 39; That's why I work so hard on the hill to change that. & # 39;
And despite the fact that the trailer is full of scenes that seem to have been taken directly from Kelly & Settle For More's memoirs, she did not speak to producers and did not collect anything from the project.
& # 39; Megyn has never met or spoken to Charlize, and she has not sold the rights to the book (Settle For More) & # 39 ;, says her lawyer Bryan Freedman.
& # 39; In fact, Megyn was just as surprised as everyone else when the trailer fell. & # 39;
Huddy says that she was not given much control over how she was portrayed in the film, and noted that she heard about a scene after it was shot.
& # 39; I thought, "Well, God, he contacted me rather late to get my perspective," Huddy recalls.
& # 39; I really hope they have done their due diligence. I hope they have kept in mind that while Gretchen and Megyn became heroines, there were quite a few of us whose lives were turned upside down. & # 39;
This is not the first time Huddy has spoken in public after sharing her story in Kelly on Kelly earlier today.
Less than an hour later, her brother John was fired by Fox News & # 39; after a thorough investigation into a physical fight earlier this month & # 39 ;.
The network said the timing was a coincidence and they were willing to make the announcement Friday, but not in the Sabbath observation.
However, there was no explanation as to why Huddy, who was stationed in Jerusalem, was fired at the end of the day and not early in the morning.
However, she did not go into specific details at the time and cited her NDA as the reason for her silence on certain topics.
Blond ambition: Megyn Kelly did not speak with producers or star Charlize Theron and received no compensation, despite scenes that seemed to have been taken from Settle For More (l to r: Theron, Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie)
Kelly came in to give some commentary.
& # 39; At Fox News, Irena Briganti, Head of Media Relations, is known for her revenge. To this day, she is pushing negative articles about certain Ailes prosecutors, such as the one you're looking at now, & # 39; started the NBC anchor when she welcomed Huddy to her show.
& # 39; I am not pleased to report such news about my former employer, who has absolutely implemented some reforms because this has all happened. But this must stop. The abuse of women, the shame of them, the threat, the retribution. The silence of them afterwards. It must stop. & # 39;
Kelly also used the show as an opportunity to talk about her own experiences with sexual harassment at Fox, where she worked for more than a decade before coming to Fox News.
& # 39; Fox News was not exactly a friendly environment for harassment victims who, in my experience, wanted to report & # 39 ;, Kelly said.
& # 39; The suggestion from O & # 39; Reilly that no one complained about his behavior, however, is incorrect. I know because I complained. & # 39;
Fox News & # 39; parent company 21st Century Fox which has since been discontinued said: & # 39; Irena is a valued colleague and she has our full support. & # 39;
Fox News also responded in a long statement.
& # 39; Since Roger Ailes left in 2016, Fox News has worked tirelessly to completely change the corporate culture & # 39 ;, said a spokesperson.
& # 39; Over the past three years, we have created a whole new reporting structure, more than the triple size of our HR footprint, instituted mandatory personal training for sexual harassment, initiated quarterly business meetings and mentor events and implemented a zero tolerance policy for misconduct on misconduct on the workplace for which we engage external independent companies to handle investigations.
& # 39; No other company has made such a comprehensive & continuous overhaul. We are incredibly proud of our team and will continue to emphasize transparency in all Fox News Media. & # 39;
