Kristen Apologies for "Rape" Comment - Says: I Made a Mistake


From NYDailyNews.com:

Kristen Stewart, who recently commented that the exposure and pressures of fame were similar to being raped, recanted almost immediately after the quote was published in an interview with British Elle.

"I really made an enormous mistake clearly and obviously," Stewart told People.com in an interview following the quote's publication. "And I'm really sorry about my choice of words."

The ink was barely dry on Stewart's Elle interview when the backlash hit. Rape victims' support groups in particular were up in arms over the piece. Stewart's retraction of her comments, the impact of which threatened to eclipse the release of the third "Twilight" film, was swift and direct.

"'Violated' definitely would have been a better way of expressing the thought," she told People.

Ironically enough, Stewart once played a rape victim in the 2004 film "Speak," and has previously done some public service announcements for the rape advocacy group RAINN.

She acknowledged that she should have been more mindful of her comments when she sat down with Elle to discuss her stardom.

"People thinking that I'm insensitive about this subject rips my guts out," Stewart said to People.

As the "Twilight" machine rolls on - "Eclipse" bows in theaters later this month - Stewart seems willing to just admit a bad choice of words and pay it no more mind as she gets back to work promoting her movie.

"I made a big mistake," she said to People.
