Johnny DeppJohnny Depp was shooting a scene for his upcoming movie, Public Enemies, when a stuntdriver lost control of his car. The 1933 Ford slipped on a patch of ice and was heading towards a group of six extras, who didn’t notice the oncoming car. Depp, who had witnessed the car sliding, sprang to action. A witness said: “Johnny slammed into the group with arms outspread, shoving them all back,” according to a British newspaper. No one was injured. Depp plays 1930s bank robber John Dillinger in the crime drama.

    “duh”, what is your problem? He RISKED HIS OWN LIFE to save six others! Do you really think he stopped to think about what he could get out of it for himself? Man, your name says it all.

    50 years from now they’ll do a bio-pic about Johnny Depp and they won’t be able to find and actor to play the role. That, plus the fact the film would have to be five hours long to detail all the wonderful things he does.

    I’ve got another cavity, damn!
