Media coverage is like being raped – Says Charlize Theron

Sometimes you really have to wonder what people are thinking about when they say stuff.

Such is the case here.

TMZ reports:

Gwyneth 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.

Excuse me, what?

No ma’am, Charlize and no ma’am Gwyneth.  What in the world?It is CLEAR that neither of these women have experiences these tragedies that they so loosely speak of, but my goodness?  Honestly, I get where Charlize was TRYING to go with this, but it’s just a poor choice of words here.  It’s all wrong. How do you compare a Google search of yourself to feeling like you’re being raped?

And Gwyneth? Sis. War? WAR?
