"I made an error, a judgment that is irresponsible. You know, I'm not just a kid who can say, 'You know, we're making movies in college. Put your buddy in the movie.' This is an adult decision with real responsibilities. And I didn't vet somebody. And it doesn't matter that I was shocked at these e-mails or that he misrepresented my friends and I. Oh my God. Doesn't matter. I was the captain of that ship. It's my job to make sure that those things don't happen. You see? And I failed. And I may have caused -- I did cause pain to people in the cast. That's unacceptable. I take full responsibility. I'm very deeply sorry. I mean, I think about this a lot. I hope I learned from this, because it really bothers me that this movie which could have been these beautiful people on a beautiful night with only this has been overshadowed in some ways by a stupid decision that I made. I'm very sorry to anybody."
