Chris Rock Messes Up Charlize Theron's Name Oscars

Hear the Hilarious Way Chris Rock Messed Up Charlize Theron's Name at the Oscars

Chris Rock opened the Oscars with a searing monologue that smartly and hilariously touched on a variety of important subjects, but one of the most stand-out moments of his speech was the way he appeared to mispronounce Charlize Theron's name as "Charice" Theron. Everyone on Twitter appropraitely freaked out, and couldn't help but be reminded of John Travolta's notorious gaffe at the 2014 Academy Awards, when he introduced Idina Menzel as "Adele Dazeem." Watch Chris's very funny mistake below, and check out the greatest candid moments from this year's show!!
