Johnny Depp - Johnny Depp Apologises Over Rape Comments

Johnny Depp has apologised for comparing photoshoots to rape in a recent interview following an outcry from activists.
The Hollywood star spoke about his dislike of posing in front of the camera during a chat with Vanity Fair magazine, telling the publication, "Well, 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 photoshoot or something like that, it's like - you just feel dumb. It's just so stupid."
His remarks caused a storm of controversy, with angry members of America's Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (Rainn) calling for the star to meet victims of sex attacks in order to fully understand the gravity of the crime.
Depp has now apologised for the offence he caused, insisting his comment was down to a "lack of judgement".
He says, "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."
