Adam Brody regrets suggesting Kristen Stewart should give up acting - because he "sounded like an idiot" and isn't surprised he was slated for the remarks.
The former The O.C. star riled Twilight fans when he insisted the actress should quit her movie career if fame gets too much for her.
Referring to the actress in an interview with Diablo Cody, he said, "It's only gotten worse, I'm sure, being a celebrity. At the same time, I don't have a lot of patience for people who moan about it too much. Because there are many things you could do... It's like, quit... you don't need to be an actor, so it's like, if it's that much of a problem... there's the door."
The comments sparked an online hate campaign from loyal followers of the vampire franchise - and now even Brody admits his words were too harsh.
He tells MTV News, "It wasn't taken out of context. I saw (the interview) and thought I sounded like an idiot. I did. Regardless of how anyone else took anything, I would think that sounds very ungentlemanly and I sounded like a jacka**."
