"I apologize to the pap for a stunt that was done 4 months ago regarding an umbrella. I was preparing my character for a roll (sic) in a movie where the husband never plays his part so they switch places accidentally. I take all my rolls very seriously and got a little carried away. Unfortunately I didn't get the part."
– Britney Spears, in a post on her Web site, addressing a run-in with the paparazzi just before she entered rehab
