Johnny Depp launches new attack at Aussie apology video and Deputy PM: 'He looks inbred with a tomato'

If the dog smuggling controversy wasn't deterrent enough, now Johnny, 52, has once again mocked both his apology video and Australia's Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

"He looks somehow inbred with a tomato," Johnny said of the man who led the charge against him and Amber. "It's not a criticism. I was a little worried. He just might explode."

It was obvious this wouldn't be a standard sit-down from the moment Johnny showed up onstage, kissed Jimmy Kimmel on the lips and announced: "This is a time for apologies. I'd like to apologise for kissing you."

They then segued into a more infamous apology, the mea culpa Johnny and Amber filmed for illegally bringing their two Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo, into Australia while he was filming the upcoming film here last year.

"Who wrote that?" Jimmy asked.

"A genius," Johnny deadpanned.

"And who directed that presentation? Was there anybody telling you what to do?" Jimmy continued.

"You know who directed that? The iPhone," Johnny answered.

Johnny: "Sometimes you have to giggle a little to get it out."

Jimmy: "Did you watch it back afterwards before releasing it."

Johnny: "No, because I didn't want to kill myself."

In this context, the apology does seem pretty laughable. Johnny and Amber appear to be struggling to keep straight faces, which wasn't lost on Barnaby.

"What I can say is although I don't think he'll get an Academy Award for his performance, the fact that he did it...He looked like he was auditioning for The Godfather," the Deputy PM, who had threatened to euthanize the dogs, said afterwards.

"At the end of it, we've got a message that is going all around the world right now," he added. "It's going off like a frog in a sock telling people that if you come into this nation and you don't obey our laws, you're in trouble. That's what this is about."

At least Johnny has a sense of humour about dog-gate, and he used it in the most biting way.

"It's clearly dangerous in Australia because there are so many poisonous creatures in Australia," he said. "You could die at any minute. So the dogs were obviously a problem."

Amber, who was the only one charged in the case, was given a one-month good behaviour bond sentence, with no blemish on her record.
