Depp battled a nasty cold, but survived to tell the tale
After missing Japanese press event, Mortdecai star blames an attack from a legendary creature
Johnny Depp has recovered from a cold. And a chupacabra attack.
The actor was all smiles while joking Wednesday with journalists in Tokyo about why he was a no-show at a news conference a day earlier. Depp had been ill but said that wasn’t the reason.
“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 in my suitcase. I threw him off the 23rd floor. So we’ll never see him again. Thank you for understanding,” he said.
The chupacabra is a legendary creature rumoured to inhabit parts of the Americas. Depp’s tale drew laughs from the crowd of reporters.
Johnny Depp is in Tokyo, Japan to promote his latest film, Mortdecai.
