When asked by The Cut to comment on Christian Dior's deposed creative director John Galliano, Theron stuck by the designer, saying, "I don't want to talk too much...I think that he's going through a really difficult time right now, and I'm sure that he wants some privacy. He's got an important journey to go through right now. But I wish him nothing but well."
