• Hear the Amazing Tale of Why Johnny Depp Missed His Tokyo Press Conference

    Johnny Depp is sorry — VERY sorry — that he had to postpone a press event earlier this week in Tokyo. But he has a great excuse.

    The Mortdecai star admitted that he had been battling a cold, but said it wasn’t the reason for his absence. Nope, the real reason…

    … was the famed Chupacabra!

    I was attacked yesterday morning by a very rarely seen or experienced animal called ‘Chupacabra.’ I fought with it for hours. They’re very persistent, very mean. And I’m pretty sure it came into my suitcase. I threw him off the 23rd floor. So we’ll never see him again. Thank you for understanding,” Johnny told his Tokyo fans.

    The Spanish-named Chupacabra translates to “goat-sucker” in English.

    Watch Depp’s heartfelt recounting of the clearly terrifying incident in the clip above.
