Washington, Feb 19 : Actress Charlize Theron has slammed the tabloid press, insisting that journalists are out to wreck her career.
The 'Monster' star has pledged not to give in to the pressure of the tabloid press, accusing the media of trying to influence her decisions.
The Oscar winning actress condemned journalists for giving fans a fake representation of her lifestyle.
"Everyone is just waiting for you to fall on your face. So if I start making decisions based on what others think I should be doing, I am just getting myself into hot water," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
"So I just try and do things that I feel - no matter what happens at the end of the day, no matter what you guys say about how and no matter how much money it makes at the box office - I really wanted to do.
"I think we live in a culture where we want to raise people and see them fall. That's what the tabloids are all about. Why do we have tabloids? We want to see (celebrities) do embarrassing things," she added.
