Johnny Depp in Hot Water For Comparing Photo shoot to Rape


Despite his pretty face, actor Johnny Depp has earned the wrath of some socially concerned citizens. The Pirates of the Caribbean star was recently quoted comparing photo shoots to rape which angered members of the Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network (RAINN).

In an interview for Vanity Fair’s November cover story, the 48-year-old actor told the magazine that he finds photo shoots absurd and weird. He furthered and compared the experience to being rape.
“Well, you just feel like you’re being raped somehow,” said the versatile actor musician. “Raped. The whole thing. It feels like a kind of weird, just weird, man…Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like—you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid.”

But Depp did not stop there. The thespian went on describing his Hollywood paycheck as “stupid money”. According to the 21 Jump Street alumnus, he still makes popcorn movies because the money he makes is for his kids.

Meanwhile, the RAINN has fired back at the actor. “While photos may feel at times intrusive, being photographed in no way compares to rape—a violent crime which affects another American every two minutes,” RAINN spokeswoman Katherine Hull tells E! News. “RAINN welcomes the opportunity to speak with Mr. Depp and educate him about the real life experiences faced by survivors every day, and ways that he can work with RAINN to help,” she furthered.
