From now on, let’s only let Johnny Depp give interviews to Vanity Fair. Because not only do we control who Johnny Depp gives interviews to, but whenever his voice connects with VF‘s recorder, magic happens. His last cover story with the glossy gave us the rockstar line, “Money doesn’t buy you happiness. But it buys you a big enough yacht to sail right up to it.” While he’s not exactly right—we bought a gram of happiness last Saturday—it’s still rare to hear a star of his caliber sound so cocky. In Vanity Fair‘s November cover story, Depp holds back even less when he compares getting his picture taken by professional photographers to being raped.
Well, you just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped … It feels like a kind of weird — just weird, man… Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like — you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid.
We’re pretty sure that most people wouldn’t agree, but most people aren’t Johnny Depp. In totally unrelated, non-rapey news, the photographer for Depp’s Vanity Fair shoot was Terry Richardson.
