What do people mean when they say they "have no regrets?"

I'm genuinely puzzled every time somebody (usually a celebrity) says something like this. I would think having regrets is a natural part of human life...especially when it comes to hurting someone else.
I do not know why someone would NOT have regrets about being a jerk or asshole at at least one point in his or her life. I can understand how a saint would not have regrets, but the people who say such things IMHO, aren't exactly saints...usually just normal people.
Is there some other meaning I'm missing when someone says they don't regret a single thing they've done? Or do they SERIOUSLY not feel regret?
