I can't understand you guys. Johnny is being photographed by Terry Richardson and he says it's like being raped. And you think it's insensitive or something. Would you say the same thing if JD was a woman? What do you know about whether he's been raped himself or not...

If I say that laying in my new, huge, fancy bath tub is like swimming in the ocean, I don't mean it literally, it's an analogy to give an idea of the feeling.

God I'm so tired of this idea that everyone just has the say the right thing that doesn't offend. It all just gets so boring when people think before they speak.

Analogy? Are you kidding me, he is making a flippant remark comparing the feeling of being RAPED to being photographed for the cover of a major magazine! His exact words:

Quote:
“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.”
Now i dont know 100% if he experienced rape ever in his life, but i can assure you if he had, he would not be making a stupid reference like this! Being raped compared to being pampered on a photoshoot for a magazine with huge budget? Ridiculous! And from his comment its clear he was talking about photoshoots in general, not about photoshoots with Terry Richardson!

I don't think every celebrity needs to be super controlled in their interviews, but i do expect that, (especially from overpaid Hollywood veterans) they display a degree of diplomacy, why not just say what he did after the rape part? And as for your question if i would feel the same way if he was a woman, and said that? It's almost insulting you would even ask that, but to indulge you, yes, most certainly, the same exact way.

^I don't like that line of reasoning. It leads to that we all have to walk on egg shells.

I'm of the opinion JD seems like a reasonably intelligent guy, so here's how I interpreted his words: I guess to a young pretty boy hustling for gigs, it might have felt a bit like being a prostitute when being photographed. And I guess some people feel that prostitutes are if not raped so quite abused. Maybe that feeling never goes away?

He looks and sound like such a try hard. I never found him intelligent but pretentious.

Johnny Depp Apologizes for 'Regretful' Rape Comments in Vanity Fair
By Hollie McKay
Published October 05, 2011
| FoxNews.com


Johnny Depp has never enjoyed photo shoots. But comparing them to violent sexual assault was perceived by some as a bit insensitive.

“Well, you just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped ... It feels like a kind of weird – just weird,” the “Rum Diary” star told the November issue of Vanity Fair. “But whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like – you just feel dumb.”

According to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN), the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, Depp ought to know there is a marked distinction between posing for a photographer and being raped.

"While photos may feel at times intrusive, being photographed in no way compares to rape — a violent crime which affects another American every two minutes,” the organization’s spokesperson Katherine Hull told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column on Tuesday. "RAINN welcomes the opportunity to speak with Mr. Depp and educate him about the real life experiences faced by survivors every day, and ways that he can work with RAINN to help."

After hearing of RAINN’s concerns, Depp was quick to admit fault, and apologized to the organization late Tuesday.

“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. “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.”


RAINN accepted Depp's apology, saying: "We hope to work with him to provide hope to victims of rape and make sure they get the help they deserve."
I think we can consider the matter closed.

^ OMG she looks fantastic. Can't wait to read that. I still have the VF pics of her in the petals.

I'm glad Johnny has said sorry.

You're not kidding. The last article they did on him (in the Caribbean) was actually with regard for this Rum Diaries movie.

Love Johnny and think he's fabulous, but wasn't he just recently on their cover? I swear they've all lost their creativity at these magazines!
