    Apparently, Charlize is looking to outdo Gwenyth Paltrow on stupid and offensive analogies of the week.

    I can't wait for Angelina Joli to compare Pintrest to the Holocaust.

    Meh. She's almost 40. Give a couple of years and she will be forgotten.

    It seems like Sean Penn realized he better get in there quick because the expiration date is tomorrow.

    So first take her picture and annoy her.
    Then rape her.

    If she still can't tell the difference, does it matter?

    Seems like her career was gang raped by being in that cowboy musical.

    I am not outraged. I just think it is stupid for a multimillion actress to compare the worst part of their dream jobs to what are tragedies. It is an insult to people who were wounded in a war or lost someone or someone who was actually raped though.

    I just think it is ridiculous that celebrities that are treated like royalty 95% of the time complain about the 1% of the time where their job actually sucks. And act like it is worse than normal people's problems. Gwyneth Paltrow is reportedly worth $100 million. I would gladly have people say horrible things to me on Twitter for that much money. Theron isn't as rich, but she could easily keep her relationship with Sean Penn out of the spotlight. Plenty of celebrities who are bigger than her can keep their love lives out of the tabloids.

    They're comparing being bothered by the press (which would go away in all of about four minutes if they stopped trying so desperately hard to get the press to pay attention to them) to some of the most horrific experiences imaginable. Being covered by the media really leaves you with the same aftermath as the sheer terror that comes with being overpowered and sexually violated? It's not only tasteless, but offers a horrible analogy.

    Their awful word choice is only topped by the fact that they're basically bitching about how, now that they've acquired the fame they've so desperately asked for, they want more privacy. Wait five or ten years, then Chalize'll be begging for the press to pay attention to her, and complaining about ageism when they don't.

    This twat, Katherine Heigl and Gwyneth Paltrow should have a stupid-off on network TV to determine the champion nitwit.

    along these lines..
    I was listening to Pete Dominic's show on 104 Indie this morning only because I had the station on on my car from C&R and happened to catch him blathering about personally being an activist for women blah blah...
    cut straight into a Name Your Price commercial

    then I kept listening because he was having this former speech writer for Busch and I guess Pete Dominic had to say on air that he would not allow those commercials to air on his show becuz someone called and nominated him for the Ted Kennedy Activist For Women award.
