In one scene in “Long Shot,” Charlize Theron plays the Secretary of State who takes molly and then must negotiate a hostage situation.

“True story, Madeleine Albright did that,” director Jonathan Levine joked at a SXSW panel moderated by Variety‘s Ramin Setoodeh.

“JFK was on meth, so it’s not that far out, honestly,” co-star Seth Rogen added.

Theron joked about her method acting for the role, saying, “I’ve heard it feels good to touch things, so I just kind of went from there.”
