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.
