LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Tia Mowry and Charlize Theron's recent feud was reportedly exaggerated.

The 36-year-old Sister, Sister star and 39-year-old actress had a run-in at a SoulCycle class in July. Mowry told In Touch magazine she attempted to befriend Theron, who "wasn't very nice" and "just mean" in response. Subsequent reports claimed Theron attempted to have Mowry banned from class, but a source told E! News the rumor is untrue.

"This is totally fabricated and completely not true," the insider asserted.

Mowry herself told the website last week the incident got "blown out of proportion."

"I do not know her," she said. "I do not know Charlize. I absolutely love her, she's my "Woman Crush Wednesday," you can even see it on my Instagram! I'm obsessed with her, I love her, but it was definitely blown out of proportion. So that's all I'm going to say about that."

Mowry currently stars as stepmother Stephanie Phillips on Nickelodeon series Instant Mom, while Theron will next appear alongside Christina Hendricks, Nicholas Hoult and Chloe Grace Moretz in Dark Places.
