"I'm her fan," Kelly, 48, said of the "Monster" Academy Award-winner, when asked about the casting choice during a recent interview with The Daily Mail. "She's smart, seems like a good mom — so you could do worse."
As for the movie itself, Kelly said, "I don't know anything about it."
The flick, a dramatization of the sexual harassment scandal that led to the ouster of late Fox News founder Roger Ailes, is poised to be released Dec. 20.
Kelly says she didn't watch an Ailes-focused TV series released earlier this year, Showtime's "The Loudest Voice in the Room," that starred Russell Crowe as the Fox News executive.
Asked whether she'd be heading to the movie theater to watch "Bombshell," Kelly replied with a smile, "I don't know about that ... I haven't decided that yet."
"I'm going to let someone who loves me watch it first and tell me whether I should see it," she said.
The publication also inquired with Kelly — who parted ways with NBC News last year following backlash over her remarks during a Halloween discussion on her morning show regarding blackface — whether there was a chance she would moderate a presidential debate anytime soon.
"Do you think they can handle me?" responded Kelly, who as a then-Fox News host served as a 2015 GOP debate moderator.
