Sharon Stone issued another apology for her remarks at the Cannes Film Festival about the earthquakes in China.
"There have been numerous reports about what I said in Cannes," she said in a statement Wednesday. "I would like to set the record straight about what I feel in my heart and end all of the misunderstandings. Yes, I misspoke. I could not be more regretful of that mistake. It was unintentional. I apologize, those words were never meant to be hurtful to anyone, they were an accident of my distraction and a product of news sensationalism. I am deeply saddened by the pain that this whole situation has caused the victims of the devastating earthquake in China."

Despite an apology for her remarks blaming the earthquake in China on the country's karma because of its human-rights history, this year's Shanghai International Film Festival refuses to roll out the red carpet for the American actress.
Stone, 50, had attended the 2007 event, but no invitation for the June 14-22, 2008, gathering will be forthcoming, fest spokeswoman Tang Bing said Wednesday, the Associated Press reports.
Furthermore, according to Tang, festival organizers dispatched a letter to the Basic Instinct star, protesting her comments and demanding an apology.

Red carpet questions are usually limited to "What are you wearing?" or "Who are you dating?" But when Sharon Stone was unexpectedly asked about the recent earthquake in China – which claimed the lives of 80,000 people – the actress walked right into a political minefield.
"At first, I'm not happy with the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans ...," she said on camera Thursday at the Cannes Film Festival, referring to the country's alleged human rights violations. "And then all this earthquake and stuff happened and I thought, 'Is that Karma, when you're not nice that the bad things happen to you?' "
