“It was very painful. When I said it was like a rape, that was how it felt to me. I had experienced in my youth being raped, and so I identified with a real act that had been done to me. I didn’t use that word lightly. I had been raped as a child. It was a rape I never told about, so when I experienced this one, I felt the need to express it. … I never reported my real rape, so I felt the need to report this one.”

– Actress Kim Novak spurred a whole lot of eyerolling when she said that the music from her 1958 film “Vertigo,” being used in the Oscar-winning film “The Artist” was like a “rape.” Last month, Novak took out a page in the magazine Variety which read, “I want to report a rape. I feel as if my body – or, at least my body of work – has been violated by the movie, ‘The Artist.’” She was slammed by rape crisis groups who pointed out, uh, it’s not really the same thing.

 “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]
