Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron thoroughly enjoyed her travels through Turkey during a recent vacation, but should have been more thorough in reading her guide books and maps.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Theron gave an interview in which she raved about her travels through Turkey, but repeatedly referred to the Turkish city of Istanbul as "Budapest." (Budapest is in Hungary.)

"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," Theron told the Mail.
