When it comes to the stars, it's easy to put them on a pedestal. Many people have favorite celebs whom they struggle to believe could do anything wrong. In reality, of course, famous people make mistakes just like everyone else. And just like everyone else, when those mistakes hurt other people, they have to apologize.
Filmmaker Kevin Smith has recently offered a public apology to Bruce Willis for some nasty comments he made about him in the past. He worked with the actor on the 2010 movie 'Cop Out,' and later said that directing him was "soul-crushing." He went as far as to say "Were it not for Tracy, I might have killed either myself or someone else in the making of f--king 'Cop Out,'" referring to Willis' co-star, Tracy Morgan. In light of the recent news that Willis has been diagnosed with aphasia, a brain disorder that impairs his ability to speak, Smith felt it was time to apologize for his petty remarks.
"Long before any of the Cop Out stuff, I was a big Bruce Willis fan - so this is really heartbreaking to read," Smith tweeted on March 30. "He loved to act and sing and the loss of that has to be devastating for him. I feel like an a--hole for my petty complaints from 2010. So sorry to BW and his family."
More often than not, when a mistake is made in public, the apology is issued in public. Check out this gallery for some of the most memorable celeb-on-celeb public apologies.
