Johnny Depp Nearly Died in Plane Crash
Johnny Depp has revealed that he was convinced he was going to die in a recent plane flight with “Rum Diary” director Bruce Robinson. As reported by Us Weekly, the 48-year-old actor discussed the white-knuckle moment in a new interview with Life magazine.
Depp and Robinson, 65, were on the airplane when its engines temporarily broke down.
“The plane just shut down,” Depp said. “The sound of the engines stopped. There was silence. Bruce and I were looking at each other and I think I said, ‘Is this it?’ It was like this weird extended moment when you’re just floating for a second and you could feel this unpleasant descent. Nobody said a word except for Bruce and I, sitting next to each other saying, “This is death; I guess this is how it goes down.”
The moment quickly turned humorous, however.
“Then we burst into hysterical laughter at the idea that this was how we were going to die,” he concluded.
Depp said that both he and Robinson were immensely relieved when the plane’s engines suddenly started back up, Us Weekly reported.
“I guess you could say that was a big bonding experience for Bruce and me,” Depp told the magazine. “For a moment there, we were going down together.”
