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 ...

Is she serious? What an idiot. How about you stop doing minimal work for millions of dollars, if you're really so bothered about "media coverage"
These people who live in Hollywood AKA La la land seriously have no idea about the real world.
People work 12 hour shifts 5-6 days a week for minimal pay because they have to, so they can eat and pay bills. She learns a few lines for a few months, earn millions, then cries in her 5 million home.
**** you, Charlize.

Obviously, Charlize has never been in a situation like that. I understand what she's trying to say, but that was definitely poor wording.

Can the dumb blonde actresses shut the hell up.
No one forces you to be an actress.
No one forces you to be famous.
No one would ask your moronic opinions if you say worked at walmart.
You are famous for nothing other than being pretty and reading some one elses words for money.
A trained chimpanzee could do that.
Oh and to the idiot posters here who comment about my non use of puncuation is this more to your liking.

What this stupid bimbo means is that she feels VIOLATED, not "raped." That said, fkn get over it, you're very handsomely compensated. No one forced you to seek fame. *rolls eyes dismissively* <-- This is my sympathetic look......

I'm fairly certain that Gwyneth has never been in armed combat. On the other hand, I do not know the details of Chalize's private life. Perhaps she's been a victim of sexual assault. In that case her metaphor may not, in fact, be inappropriate. For those reasons, Gwyneth continues to be the reigning champion of cluelessness.

She makes a living based on her looks. If she's tired of being violated/ raped Walmart is hiring.

Poor baby. She won the genetic lottery, but still whines about her life.

While Paltrow is clearly delusional (not in an insane way, in a sheltered, super privileged existence way) Theron has legitimate experience with torment, given her family history what with her family being killed from within and I believe lots of abuse of all kinds leading up to the murders. That she is as functional and successful as she is is a miracle. So if she says it feels rape-y, I'll give that to her.

Yet, she goes to the press about her "rape". Idiot.
