Johnny Depp has apparently been causing more on the new “Pirates of the Caribbean” set beyond getting into trouble for smuggling terriers. Studio bigwigs reportedly staged an intervention to get Depp to knock off the partying he’s been doing and take the job seriously, according to the National Enquirer.
“They’ve told him in no uncertain terms that he needs to clean up his act and concentrate on making the movie. He had a big sit-down with the head of Disney Pictures, as well as producer Jerry Bruckheimer, his agents and a few close friends,” a source says. “Basically, they told Johnny he had to get his act together. Johnny apologized to the crew and producers when he finally got back to Australia from L.A.”
Not only that, he also reportedly hired a sober coach to help him out. None of this, of course, explains why we need another “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, but I suppose we can’t have everything.
