Japan – Mortdecai Tour – Johnny missed an interview due to “being sick” He and Amber were in Japan together. His next appearance with Amber?
We’ve heard the “exhaustion” excuse from stars who miss events.
But “attacked” by a “chupacabra”?
You have to hand it to Johnny Depp for that one.
That’s what he said was his reason for missing a news conference for his new movie, Mortdecai, in Tokyo on Tuesday.
The 51-year-old actor laughed and joked with journalists at a press conference Wednesday as he explained why he was a no-show the day before, reports AP.
Depp said he had been battling a cold, but said that wasn’t the real reason for his absence.
“I was attacked yesterday morning by a very rarely seen or experienced animal called ‘chupacabra.’ I fought with it for hours. They’re very persistent, very mean. And I’m pretty sure it came into my suitcase. I threw him off the 23rd floor. So we’ll never see him again. Thank you for understanding,” he said.
