Drunk’ Johnny Depp gives bizarre speech at Hollywood Film Awards


Jack Sparrow appeared to have found the rum when a seemingly plastered Johnny Depp slurred and stumbled through a bizarre and embarrassing speech at the Hollywood Film Awards.

Depp, who was presenting the best documentary award to Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon, appeared visibly affected by alcohol the moment he stepped on stage.

“That’s the weirdest microphone I’ve ever seen in my life,” the 51-year-old announced, before wrestling with the equipment in front of the bemused audience.

I’m not very good at this kind of thing,” continued Depp, before switching into drunken pirate mode and apparently dropped a serious of expletives that producers were forced to blank out

Later, he quipped cryptically  that it was “one of those nights”, before he was abruptly cut off by a highlights package from the film.

Inevitably, Depp’s toe-curling performance was picked up by Twitter users, many of whom were amused by the whole episode.
