While we have already learned that the "Drunk Girl in Public" video was a fake (is anything even real anymore?), now the actress hired to play said drunk girl is also speaking out.

Jennifer Box has released a video apologizing for the stunt Monday, which she says was originally pitched to her as a "lighthearted prank show."

She said she never would have participated if she had known the damaging outcome of the video. But isn't forever being remembered as "that drunk girl in public on Hollywood Boulevard" a good enough reason to turn it down?

The men in the video recently spoke up about the prank to Inside Edition and the mastermind behind the entire debacle, Stephen Zhang, has made the original video private, which had racked up millions of views since it aired.
