Johnny Depp apologises over rape comment


Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp has apologised for “regretful” comments made in an interview, comparing photo shoots to being raped.

He told Vanity Fair magazine he found being photographed “just weird” and said: “You just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped. The whole thing.”

In a statement he apologised for “a poor choice of words on my part, in an effort to explain a feeling”.

It came after he was criticised by the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.

Speaking at the same interview, Depp, 48, added “whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like – you just feel dumb”.

“It’s just so stupid,” he added.
