“I really made an enormous mistake – clearly and obviously,” Stewart, currently in Korea to promote the new installment of the Twilight series Eclipse, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “And I’m really sorry about my choice of words.”
Stewart, 20, is not known as one to mince words. “I’ve made stupid remarks before, and I’ve always reasoned: ‘Whatever. They can think what they want,’ ” she says.
But in this instance, the Los Angeles-born actress feels compelled to address the situation. ” ‘Violated’ definitely would have been a better way of expressing the thought,” she notes.
Or maybe even “Holocausted.” Just putting it out there.
But all jokes aside, I actually respect Kristen Stewart less for making this apology. She could’ve said, “Being famous is exactly like living a meaningless existence obsessing over a book about abstinent vampires because suburban life is a slow, suffocating death” and Twi-hards would’ve tripped over themselves to buy double the tickets for the new movie. No, really, I hit one with my car the other day, slapped in some vampire teeth and she gave me a hug.
Okay, it was a cat, but close enough.
