In case you fell off the face of the earth yesterday or just chose to not give a shit about how Johnny Depp has tried to bump his next movie over the $1 Billion box office mark, you missed him comparing photo shoots to rape. Right, well he walked that shit back faster than John Travolta in a backwards footrace through a cornfield. Depp’s statement via Huffington Post:

I am truly sorry for offending anyone in any way. I never meant to. It was a poor choice of words on my part in an effort to explain a feeling,” Depp said in the statement. “I understand there is no comparison and I am very regretful. In an effort to correct my lack of judgment, please accept my heartfelt apology.

He really wasted no time getting this statement out while simultaneously getting even more press for The Rum Diaries. It’s almost like this whole thing was a set-up. You see a handsome Johnny on the page, oh, he says something controversial to pique your interest. All of a sudden you’re swept up, say intoxicated, with the madness of controversy and the curiosity of this dark, edgy gentleman. Then he’s soothing the flames with cool confidence getting you even more drunk on his charm. Next thing you know, you’ve awoken having paid to see his movie and you’re left wondering if you really ever wanted to in the first place. Well played, Depp. Well played.
