Johnny Depp apologizes for comparing photo shoots to rape



tbd-johnnydepp100511.jpgWhile we talked yesterday about Johnny Depp making "stupid money," he quickly apologized for making a bad analogy when he compared celebrity photo shoots to rape. Yeah, that wasn't the brightest thing to do, but at least we believe he's sorry about it.

"Well, you just feel like you're being raped somehow. Raped ... It feels like a kind of weird -- just weird, man," he told Vanity Fair. And while he'll pose with fans, "whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it's like -- you just feel dumb. It's just so stupid."

Well, a bunch of folks didn't care for that part of it, so groups like RAINN got really upset with him, prompting Wednesday's apology, the Huffington Post reports: "I am truly sorry for offending anyone in any way. I never meant to. It was a poor choice of words on my part in an effort to explain a feeling. I understand there is no comparison and I am very regretful. In an effort to correct my lack of judgment, please accept my heartfelt apology."

RAINN accepted the apology and wants to move on. How about we move on to finding out how The Juice* can make some of that "stupid money" someday?
