Paltrow and Theron in trouble for war and rape comparisons

A PAIR of Hollywood bombshells are in hot water, having each compared internet criticism to the horrors of war and rape.

Gwyneth Paltrow - who recently "de-coupled" from Coldplay singer Chris Martin - described comments about herself online as "almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody de-humanising thing, and then something is defined out of it".

Meanwhile Charlize Theron told an interview, who said he had googled her name, "I don't do that. When you start living in that world, and doing that, you start, I guess, feeling raped".

Both comments have drawn ire from all sides, particularly those who have ever experienced either of these particular traumas.
