Charlize Theron Slams "The Hills"

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!

From more on "Battle in Seattle," read writer/director Stuart Townsend's blog about the film (he's also Theron's longterm boyfriend).
