Johnny Depp: “I Killed My Dogs And Ate Them” (VIDEO)
Johnny Depp joked about killing his dogs and eating them during a press conference at the Venice Film Festival on Friday. His wisecrack was in reference to the recent controversy surrounding the actor illegally smuggling his two dogs, Pistol and Boo, into Australia. Watch the video below!
As Gossip Cop previously reported, Depp failed to declare his two Yorkshire terriers after flying them into Australia on his private jet this past May, breaking the country’s strict quarantine laws. At first, it was reported that the actor, who was in Australia to film his next Pirates of the Caribbean movie, could face up to 10 years in prison or a fine of $265,000 for his transgression. But in July, it was announced that his wife Amber Heard was the one facing the stiff penalty because she, and not Depp, is the owner of the dogs.
While on hand at the Venice Film Festival to promote his upcoming movie Black Mass, Depp was asked during a press conference if he planned on taking his dogs on “a gondola ride” while visiting the Italian city. In response to the reporter’s flippant question, Depp shot back, “No, I killed my dogs and ate them, under direct orders of some kind of, I don’t know, sweaty, big-gutted man from Australia.”
