Charlize Theron Calls "Bulls**t" on That Whole Gluten-Free Trend

Don't tell Goop, but Charlize Theron is a believer in bread. During an appearance on Chelsea Lately, Theron and Chelsea Handler got to talking about some gluten-free cupcakes which Handler had sent to Theron and let's just say she did not appreciate them very much. "I just think that if you're going to send a gift, let it be enjoyable," Theron said. "Why send me a f**king cupcake with no sugar in it? What's the use? There's no use; it tastes like cardboard."

Theron and Handler then discussed a birthday brunch which Theron threw for Handler and got into it over the presence of a gluten-free cake at said brunch. They bickered for a bit and then the whole thing sort of devolved into a Snapchat session with Chelsea. I've watched the video a couple times and I'm still not sure how we ended up where we did.

Anyway, in case she hadn't made it clear, Theron shared her thoughts about the gluten-free diet phenomenon. "First of all, I think the gluten-free thing is bulls**t," Theron said. "Sorry, that's just me. It's bulls**t. I don't believe it and I think studies now recently just proved that it is bulls**t. I actually do think it's bulls**t. And I think it's rude for you to only have gluten-free cake when none of us eat gluten-free, except you, who then didn't eat the cake."

    badday4 you keep trying to make some connection between apartheid and gluten, and it makes no sense whatsoever, so just give up. Also, why her comments may have been carelessly said( don't think she was talking about Celiac disease, just the fad diet), I don't believe she was insulting the PEOPLE who are on the diet. Just the diet itself, and saying its B.S..

    the way I see it, she wasn't talking about the illness existing or not existing, she was talking about gluten free diet as a FAD diet. The whole notion that it helps you lose weight is B.S. to her.

    people who know nothing about something should keep their mouth shut and Charlize proves it again. it's like saying 9/11 first responders/survivors don't have a higher risk of respiratory diseases and cancer from exposures to contaminants released when the world trade center collapsed and the fire at the pentagon

    So Remember Actress Jennifer Esposito the former Actress from Blue Bloods and has had years of complications with Celiac Disease, if you go to attend a party at Charlize Theron house and you can't eat her Gluten Cake, she will insult you because of your Auto Immune Disease. Hey in her native Country of South Africa they enslaved blacks and with her comment you can bet she turned a blind eye to injustice just as she is so willing to insult people who have an Auto Immune disease like Jennifer Esposito and Jon Stewarts wife and Child because they have an Auto Immune Disease called Celiac Disease. To Charlize EAT IT I DO NOT CARE IF YOU GET SICK OR NOT. What a horrible woman and she thinks that is funny.

    If it were gay people she insulted which is only 2% of the polulation THERE WOULD BE MASSIVE CALLS FOR AN APOLOGY. She never specified who she was talking about and CELIAC DISEASE REGARDLESS IS AN AUTO IMMUNE DISEASE. She doesn't even sound like she knows what Gluten is? She should have more class then how she acted on this woman's show knowing that Celiac Disease is an Auto Immune Disease that could lead to other Auto Immune diseases like Type 1 Diabetes and ADHD

    Because that was the recent study that came out and is making news all over the place Google Search this title **Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity May Not Exist** From Real Clear Science** & **Gluten Sensitivity May Not Really Exist** from Shape Magazine & **Researchers Who Provided Key Evidence For Gluten Sensitivity Have Now Thoroughly Shown That It Doesn't Exist** Business Insider Except if you google search this title **No Effects of Gluten in Patients With Self-Reported Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity After Dietary Reduction of Fermentable, Poorly Absorbed, Short-Chain Carbohydrates** and if your scroll down to the bottom you will see Australia George Weston Foods funded this study. What is George Weston Food THE TOP BREAD (GLUTEN) MANUFACTURING IN AMERICA. That makes this study suspicious as it is, but if you really want to see the truth about this study and it's bogus lies Google Search this title **Non-celiac gluten sensitivity and lies promoted by I Fucking Love Science**

    badday4, Charlize didn't point to any particular study, how do you know the study she's referring to doesn't have more than 32 participants? I think you need to be more informed about what she's talking about, and Charlize probably needs to be more informed about Celiac Disease. I won't pretend I've done my research, but maybe we should find out what research she's referring to before we judge her.
