“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,” Depp said in the statement. “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.”
If you’ve ever been in a relationship with a man, then you’re familiar with the non-apology-apology that goes something like this — “I’m sorry that I upset you” or “I’m sorry for my role in it.” I’d like to publicly denounce that as the opposite of contrite. And now — over to Johnny Depp. In a recent interview, Depp equated photo-shoots to being raped (apparently, he learned nothing from Kristen Stewart). But unlike most men and celebrities in hot water, he gave a perfect apology that actually sounded remorseful. And in case boyfriends across America want to learn how it’s done, I’ve posted the quote below. Enjoy.
