Johnny Depp doesn’t want his fans and followers to think of him as a savage.
In case you haven’t heard, Depp and fiancé Amber Heard recently found their names mixed up with some pregnancy rumors perpetrated by industry insiders and anonymous sources. According to Hollywood Life, the folks at OK! magazine — a publication known for running less-than-accurate stories — suggested that the actress was ready to have Johnny’s baby.
“Amber is so ready to be a mom. [Johnny] says it’s a whole new life for him. He’s thrilled to bits!” the source explained to the publication.
Since everyone wants to know if Johnny Depp intends to reproduce one more time, the actor faced a question about the pregnancy rumors during his interview with Today. When co-host Savannah Guthrie asked if he was expecting, Depp seemed a little perplexed by the question.
“A child? Good god, what do you think I am, a savage? No, no truth to that. [It’s] not a shotgun affair,” Johnny said in response to the inquiry.
In addition to shutting down rumors that his fiancé is pregnant, Johnny Depp took a moment to sing the actress’ praises. He said, “She’s a wonderful girl. She’s sharp as a tack. A southern belle and sweet as can be, and very good for me.”
Celebuzz explains that Heard wasn’t so quick to accept Johnny Depp’s proposal. Instead of immediately giving the guy an answer, she decided to take her time and properly think about the situation.
“Amber really took her time to make up her mind. She turned him down before she said yes. So she waited and was thinking about it for a long time,” a source told the website not too long ago.
When he isn’t battling rumors about Amber’s pregnancy, Johnny Depp spends a lot of his time these days promoting his latest cinematic endeavor Transcendence. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, then we need to correct that problem as soon as possible.
In fact, take a moment to look at the clip below.
If that trailer doesn’t make a lick of sense, then you might need to read over this synopsis. It should help clear things up:
“Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him.
However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can… but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.”
Are you glad that Johnny Depp officially cleared up those pregnancy rumors?
