Kristen Stewart’s sorry about that whole rape thing

June 4th, 2010 // 55 Comments

Because nobody puts sparkly vampire box office in the corner, Kristen Stewart has issued an apology to People after equating her celebrity status with being raped:

“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.

    I am so sick of how everything has to be so pc. I mean just shut up and get over it. So she used “rape” to describe how awful it is to be hounded every minute. It should be illegal, what those paps do. Leave her alone! She shouldn’t have had to apologize.

    Kristen Stewart is infamous for complaining about her fame. “Oh woe is me! I totally did NOT want to be famous so I decided to star in a movie based on a besr selling novel that would obviously rake in millions!” Just quit acting if you hate the attention and the MILLIONS of dollars you are given for acting in these crappy movies. We’ll listen when you’re cast in a legitamate film.

    Ok, all of you that are defending her for whatever ludicrous reasons you have (she’s so talented, ooooooh! she isn’t an attention whore, wow! she is kinda down-to-earth), you are all idiots. This isn’t a situation like in the 1950s where everyone already smoked cigarettes and then found out they are bad AFTER they are addicted; Kirsten Stewart was born into a Hollywood in which there was NO (and I mean absolutely ZERO) privacy for celebrities. When she decided she wanted to be a Hollywood movie star, she knew EXACTLY what she was signing up for. If she just wanted to act, then the bitch could have gone to Broadway or could have done solely low-budget, independent films. But no, she wanted to get rich being an actress. Well, guess what, you whiny f***ing b***h?! Fame comes at a price, and you knew that before you decided to act in a film adaptation of a wildly (and unjustifiably) popular book series. You had to have known that teenage girls are the worst form of tabloid consumers. I have ZERO sympathy for this girl, first of all because she is filthy f***ing rich (no, it’s not jealousy, but I don’t think we should bemoan the fact that she knowingly exchanged her privacy for huge sums of money), and secondly because there is no way she couldn’t have previously understood the cost of her fame and the line of work she CHOSE to pursue. She made her bed, now let that worthless b***h sleep in it.
