So Johnny Depp got into the act or bash Trump fest in the worst possible way.
Wait, in it he said he was not an actor. But in a 2013 BBC interview he said:
Depp stated in a BBC radio interview on July 29, 2013 that he hopes to be involved with “quieter things” at some point in the near future, implying that he will retire from acting. Depp explained in further detail during the interview: “I wouldn’t say I’m dropping out any second, but I would say it’s probably not too far away. When you add up the amount of dialogue that you say per year and you realize that you’ve said written words more than you’ve had a chance to say your own words, you start thinking about that as an insane option for a human being.” [Wikipedia]
Okay, what better way to set off defining yourself by making news in your own words calling for the assassination of President Trump? Picture it, Glastonbury arts festival in England, he remarked to the crowd: (what is it with these people and arts?)
“It’s just a question; I’m not insinuating anything. By the way, this is going to be in the press and it’ll be horrible,” he said.
“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? I want to clarify, I’m not an actor. I lie for a living. …
However, it’s been a while. Maybe it’s time?”
Yea, in all that spoken dialogue over the years, no one wrote that line to deliver. He can be sure it is original and it is him. Now the SS will have to ask him about his own words.
Then he had to go cleanup his statement in an apology, another Depp original:
“It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice.
I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.”
Right, a joke, didn’t mean any malice. But his original comment said he lies for a living. Oops. He knew it would cause a problem, though he did get some immediate cheers. He goes to England and does this?
He prefaced it by saying he wasn’t insinuating anything but then said “It’s been a while, maybe it’s time?” Really? Your words and the apology aren’t matching up again, Johnny.
Way to venture off into your own original words — not someone else’s. That’s sanity.
On the other hand, maybe Depp would have been better off sticking to someone’s written script. Who knows what else his own spoken words will reveal next?
