Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is catching criticism and mockery for a quote that was recently published:

Did Paltrow really compare Hollywood celebs putting up with nasty online comments to surviving a war? You be the judge:

She also compared enduring the wrath of Internet commenters to surviving a war.

“You come across (online comments) about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing,” the star said. “It’s almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing … My hope is, as we get out of it, we’ll reach the next level of conscience.”

Among those who didn’t appreciate Paltrow’s comments was Cindy McCain, wife of Arizona Senator and former GOP presidential nominee John McCain:

Paltrow recently complained that working moms have it so much easier than rich actresses who work a few months a year, and she’s now elevated the stress of her “craft” to war-like levels.

Great advice.
