Twilight star Kristen Stewart has issued a public apology for comparing being photographed by paparazzi to being “raped” in an interview with British Elle. Since her starring role in the Twilight film franchise thrust Kristen Stewart into international stardom, the actress has frequently whined about the price of being famous. Mostly we just ignore her, but her latest comment in an interview with British Elle really pissed some people off – including us.

Stewart compared viewing paparazzi photographs of celebrities to “looking at someone being raped” in the interview. “A lot of the time I can’t handle it,” Stewart said. “It’s f–ked. I never expected this to be my life.”

Now Stewart has come out to issue a public apology for her crass comment. “I really made an enormous mistake – clearly and obviously. And I’m really sorry about my choice of words,” Stewart said in a press statement. “‘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.”

Yeah, we have to agree with you on that one Kristen. And remember, if fame sucks SO badly, you can always do us a huge favor by taking your Twilight millions and retiring into obscurity on some deserted island anytime you like.
