There is a story making the rounds today that Johnny Depp fended off a would be mugger and saved his friend outside a Los Angeles recording studio. The Sun is reporting that a man confronted one of Depp's friends with a broken bottle in his hand. The mugger asked for money and then Captain Jack showed up and the mugger said "I ain't stealing from Captain Jack." The guy then put down the bottle and Johnny gave the guy a few bucks and told him to straighten up his life.
Really? This all sounds like crap. I would love to have someone ask Johnny about this when he does press for The Tourist or some other project. The mugger was supposedly out of his mind, yet somehow he managed to recognize Captain Jack and suddenly didn't want any part of it. What do you think? True or not?
The link to The Sun story has disappeared. The headline is still there. Hmmmm.
