Charlize Theron Slams "The Hills"

Posted: Updated:

In an interview with MTV to promote her film "Battle in Seattle" Charlize Theron slammed MTV's faux reality show "The Hills," which she recently watched for the first time.

Theron: So I watched a couple episodes. I was doing a world tour at the time, so I watched them in a couple languages. I realized that this f---ing show is huge. Now I'm going to ask you a question: Why?

MTV: Why what?

Theron: Why is it so big? It's about nothing! This is a free country. Freedom of speech! You can tell me right now to my face that "Reindeer Games" was a piece of sh--. That's totally fine. But "The Hills" is about nothing. I think the girls are beautiful and when they cry their mascara runs and that's real, but I don't get it!
