Kristen Stewart Apologizes for "Enormous Mistake"

by at . Comments

Way to go, Kristen Stewart.

Under fire for invoking the word "rape" when explaining what it feels like to be photographed by the paparazzi, the Twilight Saga star didn't hem or haw or make any excuses. She simply came out and apologized today.

"I really made an enormous mistake – clearly and obviously," Stewart said to People. "And I'm really sorry about my choice of words.

""'Violated' definitely would have been a better way of expressing the thought. People thinking that I'm insensitive about this subject rips my guts out. I made a big mistake."

We commend Kristen for tackling the error head on and owning up to her poor word choice.

She's actually played a big role in combating violence against women in recent years, having appeared in public service announcements for the advocacy groups RAINN and for SOC.

I agree with pak31. It's nobody elses buisness on what you want to do! Just follow your heart and don't worry about what other people think. Atleast you know you're good enough to look at if they are saying something about your apperance. Besides if they hate you so much then why are they talking about you? Answer those questions!

It's good that she apologized because if she didn't, this issue would go on for a very long time. I did think that her choice of words were a bit 'over the top', but in the end I understand and agree with how she feels. Keep it up, Kirsten, and ignore all those people who talk negative about you.

So you managed to brow-beat her into apologizing, so what? She said exactly what she felt at the time, and everybody with even half a brain understood just what she meant. It seems to me to be exactly like rape with the mob mentality added in. Some, if not most,of the paparazzi are actual scum, like she says, jibing at her to get a negative reaction. Personally, I still think they should be thrown to the ground and have their heads kicked 'til they see "the light".

I agree. Plus, everyone says things they regret. She made a mistake don't hound her about it. People today have to walk on egg shells because if you say or do anything "wrong" people can't just ignore it, they have to make a huge deal about it.
