Johnny Depp is notorious for not watching his own movies, but he’s making an exception for the good of his fans.
Depp, 53, saunters into “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” for a fleshed out discussion about his new movie, Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump impression and watching his kids grow up.
He tells DeGeneres that his new film, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”, is the first movie of his he has ever watched. “This one I did see because I thought ‘I want to make sure we’re delivering what we need to do the people,'” he says.
“Because the people… deserve to not be spoon-fed formula,” he continues. “I tried to up the stakes a little.”
The “Black Mass” star also reveals he has never seen Baldwin’s famous impression of U.S. President Donald Trump. DeGeneres praises Depp’s own Trump impression; the actor starred as the President in the Funny or Die-produced parody “Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie”.
Depp says he is open to taking over the moniker of Trump, should Baldwin retire his version on “Saturday Night Live”.
He also reflects on how well his daughter Lily-Rose is handling fame, juxtaposing it with his own young rise to fame.
And DeGeneres puts Depp in the hot seat, asking him personal questions in front of a studio audience.
