La grande bouche! (or is it bouche grande?)

Johnny Depp. I can't believe I'm writing this post.... He had to open his mouth. It's too bad he was blessed with good looks and a little talent for pretending to be who he is not.

BERLIN - Actor Johnny Depp likened the United States to a "dumb puppy that has big teeth" in an interview published Wednesday, ridiculing Washington's confrontation with France, where he lives, over the war in Iraq.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star — who spends much of his time in the south of France with his companion, Vanessa Paradis, and their two children — told the German magazine Stern he couldn't see himself paying more than short visits to his Los Angeles residence in the present political climate.

"America is dumb, is something like a dumb puppy that has big teeth — that can bite and hurt you, aggressive," Depp was quoted as saying.


[Regarding "Freedom Fries"] "Nothing made me happier than when I read that — grown men and grown women in positions of power in the United States government," Depp said. "I was ecstatic because they revealed themselves as idiots."

Depp said he wanted his two children, ages 1 and 4, to experience the United States "like it's a kind a toy — a broken toy maybe. Investigate a little bit, check it out, get this feeling and then get out."

There's nothing like an "American" going overseas and lavishing praise on his birth country. I suppose he has forgotten that his bastard children would be speaking German if not for the aggressions of the United States. I suppose that he is unaware that France can continue to pour billions of dollars into their revered social programs because they don't have a defense budget to think of-- because the doggy US has got their backs. And I suppose that by bashing the whole of America due to his hatred of one man and his desire to be adored by Euroweenies, he's being totally honest? How sad for his kids that he is taking away what could have been a great gift.

If he wants to live in a country that is something like a dumb puppy that keeps sniffing the bigger dog's butts, then go right ahead. And the dumb pups here will continue to line his wallet with millions of dollars so he can sit under his parasol in southern France and think about how broken the US is. As long as he can stay on the American gravy train, maybe he'll stay in France. They probably adore him there.
