Kate McKinnon introduces Charlize Theron at the 2019 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Kate McKinnon introduces Charlize Theron at the 2019 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Kate McKinnon attended the 2019 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards to introduce her “Bombshell” co-star Charlize Theron, who was one of the honorees of the night. Head over to the gallery to see photos and read Kate’s introduction below!

“For some reason I was asked to introduce Charlize Theron at this Glamour event, which is sort of like a bridge troll being asked to introduce a Queen, but trolls love snacks and green rooms, so here I am.

What can be said about Charlize Theron, a person whose Helen of Troy-esque, ship-launching face, is absolutely the least remarkable thing about her? A person whose real-life bad-assness makes her character from Mad Max: Fury Road look lazy and selfish? A person so grand that when you meet her, it only feels right to get on the floor—but who is so nice and normal that you end up just kind of doing a little curtsey?

In my mind, the finest screen performance of all time is Charlize in Monster. A performance filled with so much compassion and so much humanity that I found myself thinking 1) my god, the pain of so many women in this world is so overwhelming that I can’t even move; and 2) my god I want someone to make out with me outside of a roller rink. Charlize’s finest screen work came in 2014, of course, when we did an SNL sketch together about two ladies working in a cat shelter, a sketch that would go on to win a BAFTA. But seriously, she kind of swooped in and turned a bunch of cat jokes into a fully-fleshed out drama dynamic and for that I owe her so much.

What I owe her everything for is getting to be a part of her latest incredibly important film, Bombshell. Where she not only transforms into Megyn Kelly but she embodies every nuance of a horrifying and horrifyingly common situation, which is the Goliath that women face when they choose to come forward about sexual harassment. But these kinds of revelatory roles have become par for the course for Charlize. In whatever she does, she always stands for bravery, risk and making tough choices. She does it as an actor, as a producer, an activist, a philanthropist, and a mom. And that’s what makes her a Glamour Woman of the Year.”

Kate is gracing the cover of the 50th Anniversary Issue of Interview Magazine. She answered questions from Seth Meyers, Margot Robbie, Charlize Theron, Bill Hader, and much more. Our gallery has been updated with the amazing photoshoot they did with Kate and you can read the full interview in the press library. You can buy a copy of the magazine here!


Somewhere beneath her panoply of personas is the real Kate McKinnon. For as long as Saturday Night Live’s most beloved star has been in our lives, she has retained an air of mystery that serves her well the other six days of the week—and when vanishing into the madcap characters that have made her a fan favorite since she started on the show in 2012. Behind every funhouse-mirror weirdo she creates, there’s the girl who grew up on Long Island, impersonating teachers to fit in with her classmates. For every go-for-the-jugular political impression she nails, there’s the 35-year-old openly gay New Yorker, who brought her feminist streak to roles in Ghostbusters (2016), Rough Night (2017), and The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018). And for every Emmy-earning (she has two), zeitgeist-capturing, show-stopping portrayal of Hillary Clinton—or Ms. Rafferty, the unhinged victim of an alien abduction—there’s the everyday woman who likes to sprinkle cumin on her avocado toast and who would prefer to be home with her cat, Nino. In celebration of our 50th year, in an issue devoted to ripping off a half-century of the magazine’s archives, we photographed McKinnon, who will next appear in the Fox News drama Bombshell, and then as Elizabeth Holmes in an upcoming Hulu series, in homage to some of our most iconic images. For the interview, it only made sense to have the master of impersonation answer questions from a whole cast of (very famous) characters.
