Johnny Depp Jokes About Killing and Eating His Dogs Because He's Johnny Depp

johnny depp, amber heardJohnny Depp is famous for giving reporters unexpected answers to questions, but the 52-year-old actor outdid himself recently when he was approached about the ongoing saga involving Depp's Yorkshire terriers being smuggled into Australia. In fact, Depp's response may be his most bizarre quote yet!


"I killed my dogs and ate them under direct orders from some kind of, I don't know, sweaty, big-gutted man from Australia," said Depp during a press conference for his new gangster flick Black Mass at the Venice Film Festival. 

Bizarre even for our favorite swashbuckling rocker, right? Except when you consider the details of the story, I don't blame Depp for trying to have a little fun with the situation. Depp got into big trouble with the Australian government earlier this year when he snuck the terriers -- named Pistol and Boo -- into the country, where he was filming the 89th (approximately) installment of Pirates of the Caribbean. Australian law dictates that the dogs should have been quarantined, and the country's agriculture minister, Barnaby Joyce, was not pleased with Depp's attempt to skirt the rules.

“If we start letting movie stars -- even though they’ve been the sexiest man alive twice -- to come into our nation [with pets], then why don’t we just break the laws for everybody?” asked Joyce. 

Fair enough, but Joyce even threatened to have the dogs euthanized (!), and Depp's wife, Amber Heard, could face up to 10 years in prison and/or a $75,000 fine if charged (she was the one who actually transported the dogs, apparently).

The whole thing is so overblown and ridiculous, I'm sure Depp is sick to death of hearing about it. And we all know Depp's sense of humor leans pretty heavily toward the dark side. Plus, Yorkshire terriers are so tiny. They'd barely qualify as a snack! I'm KIDDING. Just like Johnny. Who is probably busy hiding Pistol and Boo from Barnaby Joyce right about now!
