Johnny Depp Says He Didn’t Smuggle His Dogs into Australia, but Hints He Might Have Sneaked in Some Other Things.

Johnny Depp isn’t too concerned that his wife Amber Heard could be jailed over the couple’s doggy drama in Australia – because he says they didn’t even smuggle the pups into the country to begin with. “We were under the impression that we had all the paperwork done with the dogs, we were there with the dogs in front of everybody,” Depp told host Jimmy Kimmel during his Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearance on Thursday. Heard is charged with illegally importing the dogs – terriers Boo and Pistol – and producing a false document back in May when the couple arrived to Australia for Depp to film the newest installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Looking back on the sessions — which ended up luring the likes of Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh and Joe Perry – he laughed, “It was pretty shocking.” The record, which evolved over a period of several years, was inspired by Cooper’s years spent partying with an Los Angeles-based crew of liquor-loving rock stars that included Keith Moon, John Lennon, Ringo Starr and Harry Nilsson. In a TV interview earlier this year, Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce threatened to kill the pets if they weren’t flown back to America. “This sort of like, weird, sweaty … gut man, who decided that you know, two, 5 or 6-inch teacup Yorkshire terriers would harm the country in some way, he’s got a point, especially when you consider that Australia has the most poisonous creatures on Earth,” Depp said. In another clip from Joyce’s threat, he called the actor by his character name “Jack Sparrow” and mentioned that he’s been PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive twice. “What did one thing have to do with the other – that I had been voted some kind of thing?” Depp asked. “I can’t quite equate the two – it was funny.” Depp said that if Heard is jailed (the charges can lead to up to a 10-year sentence), he’d “fly to Australia and assault that man” so he could join her in prison.

Depp and his band the Hollywood Vampires (which also features legends Alice Cooper and Joe Perry) were rumored to be playing on the building’s roof for the Kimmel episode, but the performance has yet to air. If you told them you were going to do an album after they were gone called ‘All My Dead Drunk Friends,’ they would have died laughing.” The process proved instructive in more ways than one for Depp, who told Kimmel he used Perry while preparing for his role as infamous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger in his latest film, Black Mass. “Joe’s got a pretty thick Boston accent,” he pointed out. “So I just sponged it.” It seems unlikely that the entire Hollywood Vampires gang will find its way back onstage for any single live date, but fans will have a few opportunities to find out starting next week, when Cooper, Depp and Perry lead a band that’s currently scheduled to include Guns N’ Roses vets Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum through a pair of gigs at the Roxy on L.A.’s Sunset Strip Sept. 16 and 17.
