Johnny Depp Stuns Fans With His Admission About His Most Famous Role

Trial has begun for Johnny Depp's defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard, and things have already gotten messy. The couple — who was married from 2015 to 2016 — had a tumultuous split that ended with Heard filing a domestic violence restraining order against Depp, accusing the actor of assaulting her in May 2016, per The Hollywood Reporter. The pair later settled their divorce and Heard withdrew her abuse allegations.

However, a 2018 Washington Post op-ed by Heard — detailing the alleged abuse she endured at the hands of an unnamed ex-lover — further complicated her conflict with Depp. In response, the "Black Mass" star sued Heard for defamation, claiming the piece caused irreversible damage to his reputation.

The trial is currently underway, and Depp has made several startling accusations about his relationship with Heard and his personal life. The entertainer — known for his starring contributions to films like "Alice in Wonderland" and "Into the Woods" — also made a shocking revelation about one of his most famous roles.

Johnny Depp prefers to not watch himself on-screen

Johnny Depp has touched on many subjects in his opening testimony in his $100 million defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife, Amber Heard. In addition to disclosing details about the abuse he endured as a child, the actor also revealed a more light-hearted detail about his hit franchise "Pirates of the Caribbean."

Depp was asked how he felt the 2003 Disney film "turned out," and his response may have been shocking to some. "I haven't seen it," Depp exclaimed (via the Daily Mail). Despite not seeing the actual movie, he still had positive remarks. He added, "But I believe that the film did pretty well, apparently, and they wanted to keep going, making more, and I was fine to do that." Fans seemed surprised by the admission, with one tweeting, "did johnny depp just say he never saw pirates of the caribbean?" Someone else called it a "baller move," while another expressed disbelief by asking, "Seriously?" One person simply said, "I'm not buyin that one!"

The actor explained his decision to refrain from watching his films during a 2009 appearance on "The Late Show With David Letterman." "In a way, once my job is done on a film, it's really none of my business," Depp told Letterman. "It's just that, you know, I don't like watching myself." While he hasn't seen the movie himself, plenty of people have, as the first film in the franchise has raked in $305,413,918, according to Box Office Mojo.
