Speaking at the A.F.I. Festival years ago, Depp explained: “Yeah, they wanted to fire me.”
Mentioning the former Disney CEO Michael Eisner, Depp explained that he did not have the best of reputations.
He continued: “It trickled back to me that Michael Eisner went on some sort of bent about how ‘Goddamnit Johnny Depp’s ruining the film!
“‘Is it drunk? Is it gay?’ So I fully expected to be fired.”
