Actor Johnny Depp, known for his cool demeanor and off-beat film roles, took a tumble on a Los Angeles street outside a restaurant after a late night dinner. Apparently food and drink got the better of him.
Depp, 47, who is known for maintaining his privacy, made a rare outing to 25 Degrees restaurant at the Roosevelt Hotel.
The street scene was chaotic as he emerged, with photographers and fans swarming the actor. Depp tried to sign autographs but went down.
“The Pirates of the Caribbean” star seemed unsteady on his feet. A friend tried to hold up the star to no avail.
Both tumbled, and a collective gasp from the crowd was audible. Depp was hoisted up, still not fully in control of his faculties and taken to an awaiting car.
Depp slumped in the back seat, pulled his hat over his face and held his arm straight out as he grabbed his bicep with his other hand.
The move could be interpreted as a “fu*ck you,” sign, or a Black Power salute popularized by the 60s radical group, The Black Panthers.
Likely it was the former; Depp is known for making outrageous comments and gestures.
Depp, who usually notoriously avoids public places, caused an uproar last week when he compared magazine photo shoots to being raped.
“Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like… you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid,” he told Vanity Fair magazine.
