A shocking new profile on Johnny Depp has revealed that he has used an ear-piece on film sets but he claims that they are sounds that create a truth.
The claims were made in 2017 as the details of a bitter court battle with his former business managers, The Management Group, emerged amongst which was the allegations that Depp had a sound engineer who was kept on yearly retainer so that he no longer had to memorise his lines.
Ive got bagpipes, a baby crying and bombs going off, Depp has now explained.
It creates a truth. Some of my biggest heroes were in silent film…It had to be behind the eyes. And my feeling is, that if theres no truth behind the eyes, doesnt matter what the f–king words are.
But the revelation is just one among many that is uncovered in the interview that Depp partook in with Rolling Stone.
Over 72 hours in his house in London, the magazine claims there was a never-ending reservoir of wine that is poured into goblets – backed up by Depps bombshell that it was insulting to say that I spent $30,000 on wine…because it was far more – and that Depp sits at the head of the table and motions toward some rolling papers and two equal piles of tobacco and hash.
Other admissions included his news that he once lived with a bank robber whom he gave crabs to after catching them in a Venice Beach hostel, and that he spent $5 million to shoot the ashes of Hunter S. Thompson out of a canon.
He also revealed that he used to take bootleg quaaludes with arsenic in them so the high was far more immediate and that he believed that the US Army would have caught Osama Bin Laden much quicker if they had dropped LSD over Pakistan.
You get a bunch of fucking planes, big fucking planes that spray shit, and you drop LSD 25, he told the magazine.
You saturate the fucking place. Every single thing will walk out of their cave smiling, happy.
Penelope Cruz, who has been pals with Depp for many years, also spoke on his behalf and revealed that he was the first person she told that she was expecting a child, as she was considering dropping out of the Pirate film On Strangers Tide.
He protected me every day, and by the end, I was six months pregnant, Cruz said. Ill never forget that.
But she also told a story of how during a dinner in London with her and Stella McCartney, Depp once attempted to remove his own tooth.
No word on if he succeeded.
However there were also admissions from friends and family of his alleged refusal to listen to his family about his romance with Amber Heard.
His family reportedly begged him not to wed the actress or to at least get a pre-nup signed, but Depp refused.
Members of Depps inner circle told the magazine how Depp and his sister Christis relationship became badly damaged; He cut himself off from the only people looking out for him, a longtime associate said.
Heard accused Depp of physical abuse and the pair later divorced; Heard later donated her settlement money from Depp to various charities including the Childrens Hospital of LA, and organisations protecting women from violence.
