I, predictably, love Johnny Depp. But I am not really feeling his casual way with words in the November issue of Vanity Fair. Apparently, in an interview with Nick Tosches, Johnny seeks to show the extent to which he dislikes photo shoots. “Well, you just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped … It feels like a kind of weird — just weird, man,” he says. “Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like—you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid.” [NY Post]

Johnny apparently didn’t get the message that comparing things that aren’t sexual assault to sexual assault is hugely insensitive and just wrong. How we wished he’d learned from these celebs who did it before him.
