Charlize Theron Compares Press Attention To Being Raped! (Your Move, Gwyneth Paltrow!)

charlize theron rape comments controversy celebrity fame press intrusion personal life

Oh no! Just after Gwyneth Paltrow got into hot water for comparing her Internet trolling experiences to the horrors of war, another Oscar-winning A-lister has one-upped her in the bad analogy game.

Charlize Theron, usually known for keeping her perspective in check with a lot of charity work, was doing a UK television interview when she actually compared the pitfalls of fame to actual rape!

The interviewer asked if she is offended by how personal the stories are that come up when she Googles herself. She said:

"I don't do that, so that’s my saving grace. When you start living in that world, and doing that, you start I guess feeling… raped."

Oh no, gurl! People adoring you so much they want to talk about your family and your hot new boyfriend can NOT be compared to real victimization.

The world didn't like it coming from Kristen Stewart three years ago; what makes you think the Evil Queen can say stuff Snow White can't??

Simply put, this kind of analogy trivializes actual rape. We're sure Charlize feels like her personal space is being violated, but it is NOT the same thing.

You should really know to choose your words better, gurl.

Ch-ch-check out the video (below) to see Charlize try to explain her comments to the surprised interviewer.

    These two silly women talk about the horrors of celebrity as if it was war and rape? Honestly, they need a dose of reality. We have all been backstabbed, talked about, and harassed. It was called Junior High School.

    Between intrusive psychological harassment or rape are there really a difference between the two, is there a large gap?

    If being a celebrity is being compared to "war" and "rape"……why not chose a different profession? Just a suggestion.

    Celebrities need to realise that being an actress/actor is a matter of choice. If press intrusion is as horrific as rape don't be an actor work in a supermarket. No rape victim has choice or control completly insensitive statement to make

    The rape victims are not paid exorbitant amounts of money to do the things that get the celebs attention in the first place. Without the media, the celebs wouldn't be where they are, and no one can get famous without the media.

    None of the above applies to rape victims.

    Re: uheardme – Often, rape victims are prostitutes. You are right about the fact that it is not the large amounts of money as with celebrities………

    I think she definitely used the wrong choice of words; I think she meant that at times she feels "violated". I think it's a bit sad how quickly people want to assume the worst instead of assuming, hey maybe she didn't mean it that way, let's give her the benefit of the doubt.
