Charlize Theron didn’t have the consent of Nelson Mandela to put a meeting with him under the hammer at an auction last week.
The actress auctioned a meeting with the former South African president at a charity event in San Francisco earlier this month — the same event where she famously smooched another woman — but the Nelson Mandela Foundation said a meet-and-greet with the anti-apartheid icon needed “a rigorous process” and that the South African-born star was yet to send in a request.
