You know how when you have a favorite actor or actress and you love everything about them, then you slowly realize you're in love with the Hollywood illusion they've created, because when they have to be actual humans and open their mouths, they're just some regular person with mostly boring lives who may or may not know how to use a proper metaphor? Cool. Say what up to Charlize Theron.
The Oscar-winning actor Charlize Theron has compared press intrusion into her life to rape. The star, who is in the UK to promote the film A Million Ways To Die In The West, made the comments when she was asked by Sky News if she ever Googled 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." Asked if she felt that strongly about the issue, Theron said: "Well, you know when it comes to your son and your private life. Maybe that's just me. Some people might relish all that stuff but there are certain things in my life that I think of as very sacred and I am very protective over them. "I don't always win that war but as long as I don't have to see that stuff or read that stuff or hear that stuff then I can live with my head in a clear space, which is probably a lot healthier than living in that dark room."
Wow, she managed to throw in "rape" and "war" to describe opening her Mac Book and typing her name into the Google search bar and pressing enter. Impressive. I mean, if you're legit famous, I'm not sure why you would ever want to invite that kind of stress into your life anyway, but let's just all agree that there are a lot of violations in this world, but there is only one rape. It would serve all of us well if we could all finally be able to make that clear distinction. It's imperative that we have one definition of what is rape and what isn't, not make it confusing. Like when it's 10am and Taco Bell already has their lunch menu up. Look man, can I get a waffle taco or not? Who do I need to speak with about this? This is bullshit quite honestly. I'm gonna need the district manager's name for this location.
