Johnny Depp Apologizes for Vanity Fair Comment

Well, that was fast.

Less than 24 hours after an excerpt of his Vanity Fair was published online, actor Johnny Depp apologized for comparing photos shoots to rape.

“You just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped. The whole thing. It feels like a kind of weird…just weird, man… Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like – you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid,” Depp said in the November issue, which hits Los Angeles and New York newsstands on Oct. 6 and nationally Oct. 12.

The 48-year-old released an apology Wednesday:

“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.”

I’m sure Depp’s people had this apology ready to go as soon as the story hit the Vanity Fair website.

Think before you speak, people. Think before you speak.
