 “There are all kinds of rape including the rape of one’s soul. All rapes are violent acts and all victims should be supported.”

This is Kim Novak’s publicist, Sue Cameron, jumping to the defense of her clinent. Recently, Kim Novak joined the ignominious band of celebs who have used “rape” insensitively, like when Johnny Depp said he feels “raped” by photo shoots. Kim Novak took out an ad in the magazine Variety to beef about the movie, “The Artist,” which uses music from one of Kim’s films. “I want to report a rape,” the ad says. “I feel as if my body – or, at least my body of work – has been violated by the movie, ‘The Artist.'” After rape crisis groups pointed out how such a comparison is callous, it put Kim’s team on the defensive. Other celebs, like Depp, have apologized for their stupid comments. However, it doesn’t look like Kim Novak has any intention. [Fox News]
