Kristen Stewart Apologizes for Equating Fame with Rape

Kristen Stewart has apologized for her remarks in British Elle after equating having pictures taken by the paparazzi to images of women being raped.

The 20-year-old actress told People, “I really made an enormous mistake – clearly and obviously…I’m really sorry about my choice of words.”

“‘Violated’ definitely would have been a better way of expressing the thought,” Kristen continued. “People thinking that I’m insensitive about this subject rips my guts out. I made a big mistake.”

FYI: Kristen‘s original quote to Elle was “What you don’t see are the cameras shoved in my face and the bizarre intrusive questions being asked, or the people falling over themselves, screaming and taunting to get a reaction. The photos are so…I feel like I’m looking at someone being raped. A lot of the time I can’t handle it. It’s f—ed. I never expected that this would be my life.”
