Charlize Theron

Compares Media Coverage to Being Raped

5/30/2014 6:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

053014_charlize_theron_launchGwyneth Paltrow held the title of "Worst Metaphor" for just one day ... because during a recent interview ... Charlize Theron compared media coverage of her personal life to rape.

Theron was sitting down with Sky News, voluntarily, when the reporter mentioned the results of a Google search on her name.

Charlize said she tries to avoid Googling herself because "when you start living in that world, and doing that, you start feeling raped."

Earlier this week, Paltrow compared reading insulting Internet comments about herself to war. Like ... actual war. 

So we gotta ask ...

She is absolutely right! Rape is nothing else but someone violently doing something to another person. And this is what you guys here at TMZ and all your so-called journalist colleagues do each and every day!

People--especially celebrities--have to stop using "raped" when they just mean "violated."

Lol. Here come all the Charlize fangirls to defend one of the biggest diva bitches in HWood. Let's talk to REAL WOMEN who are victims of brutal raprs and see if a picture by a pap or a gossip story is the same. Fvcking ass holes in HWood need to STFU and stay in their mansions until they are needed on set.

Charlize feels raped? Gwynie sees mean things written about her on the internet and she feels like she knows the strife of war?

Seriously, delusional celebrities, STAHP!!!! You dealing with the press and public opinion in no way equates to horrific events like war or rape. So sit down and STFU.

The Truth    

We don't know if Charlize was ever raped or attacked. Working in Hollywood I am sure she had some unwanted sexual in counters and she probably just ment she felt violatored by the media.

C'mon guys. Is this jump on celebrities and beat them to a pulp week? Hell, that's every week. First off, these are just human beings like you and me. We say dumb stuff, we regret some stuff we say, people interpret our words differently then we intended. None of these people are jerks or mean to insult others. Let's stop playing passive-aggressive, whiny victims whenever a celeb opens their pie hole. They spew out as much caca as the rest of us. Let it go.

I think "violated" would have been a better choice, but no matter. The media will make you famous or infamous. Check your bank balances today and accept being "raped" is profitable for you personally .
