Johnny Depp halts a mugging in process on himself and his friend. Then he even gave the poor criminal money and told him to sort out his life! How’s that for superhero.
More pictures of Johnny after the swashbuckling…
The perp wanted to steal their wallets until he recognized Johnny – or Captain Sparrow. From the Digital Spy:
Depp had just left a recording studio in Los Angeles when his friend, Babybird star Stephen Jones, was threatened by a man with a broken bottle, The Sun reports.
“It was an extremely scary moment,” a source said. “This guy looked off his head. Johnny looked him straight in the eyes and told him to back off.”
However, the mugger allegedly backed down after Depp intervened.
“The guy was OK,” the insider continued. “He looked at Johnny and said, ‘I ain’t stealing from Captain Jack’ and put the bottle down. Johnny gave him a few bucks and told him to straighten up his life.”
Well, Johnny can’t dance, but he can sure act mean! Would you have been brave enough to do what Johnny did?
