Twilight’s Kristen Stewart apologizes for “rape” remark

By Kim Palacios Of late, Kristen Stewart has broadcast her resentment of an intrusive public with anyone who would listen. Speaking with everyone from Oprah, to Elle, to Flaunt Magazine about her displeasure, she recently likened such invasions of privacy to rape. While some fans have justified her vitriolic tirades, many others condemned this comment and other recent outrageous actions. Only after rape victim advocacy groups spoke out against her did Kristen step forward to apologize.

“The photos are so … I feel like I’m looking at someone being raped,” said the star in the July issue of Elle UK. Yet, in a statement made today to People Magazine, she ran in the opposite direction. “I really made an enormous mistake – clearly and obviously,” said the actress exclusively to People. “And I’m really sorry about my choice of words. I’ve made stupid remarks before, and I’ve always reasoned: ‘Whatever. They can think what they want.’” Concluded the actress, “People thinking that I’m insensitive about this subject rips my guts out. I made a big mistake.”

Though Kristen seems genuinely remorseful about her choice of words, she seems steadfast in her original points about intrusiveness. Statements made in spring and summer interviews, even when they did not mention “rape” included wording and tone that was quite strong. Most recently, Kristen made her feelings known while in Sydney on May 31st and June 1st to promote “Eclipse”. While standing on the balcony of her hotel room, she double-flipped the bird to paparazzi and fans standing below.
