Charlize Theron Stupidly Compares Press Intrusion To Rape…After Gwyneth Paltrow Compares Trolls To War (VIDEO)

In today's dose of "foot in your mouth," Charlize Theron points out that press intrusion is like being raped. This comes on the heels of Gwyneth Paltrow comparing internet troll comments to fighting in war. When will these girls learn?

Theron stopped by Sky News to promote new flick "A Million Ways To Die In The West." A reporter asked if she googles herself, to which she replied:

"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."

It sounds like the reporter gave her a chance to redeem herself, asking, "that strong?"

But Sean Penn's leading lady continued on.

"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."

Theron added, "My job has made my life incredibly blessed and good and I am very grateful for that, but it does not mean that every aspect of my life all of a sudden becomes fodder for an article. I try to protect against that as much as I can."

Fans are understandably up in arms and demanding an apology.

Within the last two days Paltrow's atrocious comments about war were revealed to the public.

"You come across (online comments) about yourself and about your friends, and it's a very dehumanizing thing," she said. "It's almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing, and then something is defined out of it. My hope is, as we get out of it, we'll reach the next level of conscience."
