The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales actor, 51, disobeyed Australia’s animal import laws and brought his dogs into the country without permits or a period in quarantine. The actor – who is currently filming the fifth Pirates instalment Down Under – apparently broke an Australian rule, as AFP reported that Depp has come under fire from Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce.
