Charlize Theron Thinks “Maps” is Just a Yeah Yeah Yeahs Song

But then again, it’s such a good song. The 32-year-old actress was recently chatting with press about her backpacking travels with boyfriend, Stuart Townsend, mistakenly identifying Budapest as a city in Turkey. According to the Daily Mail, Theron said: “We went to Turkey. When we got over there, we rented a car and we drove all the way to Budapest. By the time we got to Budapest it was like the Cannes Film Festival, I’d never seen anything like it.”

As it turns out, all of the activity she was referring to was taking place at the Istanbul International Film Festival. I’ll be honest–I’m ridiculously ignorant when it comes to geography so I can sympathize with Charlize. I used to think that cartography was the study of carts, that is, until my boyfriend very helpfully corrected me. Dating a 5th grader might have it’s disadvantages, but at least it keeps me from looking like an idiot.
