Los Angeles: Oscar-winning actress Patricia Arquette said she could have made her backstage remarks in a more eloquent way at this year's Academy Awards.
Arquette, 46, who is facing backlash from media for her backstage speech while collecting her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for 'Boyhood', reported The Wrap.
"You can't go back in time. But, I guess I would have chosen my words a little more carefully. I think the way people perceived it is not the way at all I intended."
The actress, who also clarified what she meant on Twitter following the post-Oscars uproar, went on to say that helping all women should be the priority.
"Everyone should help women. Everyone has a vested interest. Every single lesbian and transgender woman is a woman.
"Every single woman in the African American community is getting impacted. Every single woman in the Latino community is being impacted. This is having devastating economic consequences across the board [...] If people can throw their weight behind women I think it would really help each of these bases."
