Johnny Depp Almost Died While Making The Rum Diary

Life without Johnny Depp for some would be devastating, but for others no big deal. Well if you are a Johnny Depp lover, this was almost the worst news ever.

During the filming of his new movie, “The Rum Diary,” Johnny and the director, Bruce Robinson, were on a plane that broke down in mid-air.

“The plane just shut down.  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, ‘Oh [crap]!  This is death;  I guess this is how it goes down.’  Then we burst into hysterical laughter at the idea that this was how we were going to die.”

The engines in Johnny’s plane kicked back in and everything was fine again.

“I guess you could say that was a big bonding experience for Bruce and me.  For a moment there, we were going down together.”

What a terrible feeling to have for anyone!  When you think of how many planes are taking off, landing, and flying in the air at any given moment around the world, flying is pretty safe. Seems safer than driving around St. Cloud anyway.
