"Paltrow, who announced her split from husband Chris Martin in March, insisted cyber-bullying is like the scabs from your high school wounds being ripped off on a daily basis. "
Los Angeles, May 30 - Actress Gwyneth Paltrow says that she wants to see an end to online bullying, adding that posting hateful comments online is dehumanising.

The 41-year-old said that she sometimes gets affected by barbed remarks hurled at her online and that nasty comments are still hurtful, even if the victim is a star, reports contactmusic.com.

Celebrities, we've always gotten stones thrown at us and, you know, for good reason. We're annoying. Some of us look okay, we look like we have money, our lives seem great, she said while speaking at a conference for website coders.

That may or may not be the case. Nevertheless, we get it. or, at the very least, we expect that it's part and parcel to what we do, said Paltrow.

Anyone in any field who has their head rise above a poppy in the field, they get their heads chopped off. It's our human nature to feel that way, and to do it. Everybody takes st, it's just the way it is, she added.

Paltrow, who announced her split from husband Chris Martin in March, insisted cyber-bullying is like the scabs from your high school wounds being ripped off on a daily basis.

You come across (online comments) about yourself and about your friends, and it's a very dehumanising thing. It's almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanising thing, and then something is defined out of it. My hope is, as we get out of it, we'll reach the next level of conscience, she said.
