Kristen Stewart on the red carpet

The star of the "Twilight" movies, Kristen Stewart, 20, has apologized after comparing constantly being photographed by paparazzi to being raped in the June issue of Britain's Elle.

After the interview was released Stewart received a lot of negative comments about her comparison.

On Friday, Stewart told People magazine she was sorry.

"People thinking that I'm insensitive about this subject rips my guts out. I made a big mistake," said Stewart.

The actress has been involved in RAINN, an anti-sexual assault organization, and they were quick to say how inappropriate her comments were.

However, they accepted her apology on Friday.

"I'm really sorry about my choice of words," said Stewart, noting that "violated" would have been a better choice of words.

Stewart's comments were as follows:

"What you don't see are the cameras shoved in my face and the bizarre intrusive questions being asked, or the people falling over themselves, screaming and taunting to get a reaction," she tells the new issue of Britain's Elle. "The photos are so ... I feel like I'm looking at someone being raped," said Stewart.

She said she "never expected" that this would be her life.

"A lot of the time I can’t handle it," she added

She told Elle in the interview what "really bothers me when people write nasty s--- about me and the perception is that I don’t give a f---. It could not be further from the truth."

The next "Twilight" installment is due out at the end of June.
