Amber Heard, Johnny Depp


When Johnny Depp and Amber Heard apologized on video for bringing their beloved dogs into Australia, the clip instantly went viral for how awkward it was.

Only a few weeks after his act of atonement spread across the Interwebs, Depp made it clear how he really felt about recording it. While promoting his latest movie, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Depp poked fun at his and his wife's video. "I'm going to do this everywhere I go," Depp told a room full of reporters Monday.

"I would really like to apologize for not smuggling my dogs into England because it would have been a bad thing to do," he said, causing the room to erupt with laughter. "Because the Australians, they're chipper."

He added in his slow drawl, "I tried to kill them after Australia."

Heard avoided a possible 10-year prison sentence and a fine of nearly $100,000 in April after pleading guilty to providing a false immigration document when she entered Australia last year with her pet Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo. The yearlong saga was dubbed Australia's "War on Terrier."

The Danish Girl actress was instead required to issue an apology, which Magistrate Callaghan claimed would help the Australian Department of Agriculture "get more deterrence value."

Sitting in an undisclosed office setting, Heard looked directly into the camera and said, "Australia is a wonderful island, with a treasure trove of unique plants, animals and people."

A stone-faced Depp added, "It has to be protected."

"Australia is free of many pests and diseases that are commonplace around the world," Heard said. "That is why Australia has to have such strong biosecurity laws."

Depp continued, "Australians are just as unique, both warm and direct. When you disrespect Australia law, they will tell you firmly."

"I am truly sorry that Pistol and Boo were not declared," Heard reiterated. "Protecting Australia is important."

Depp ended the PSA by reminding people to "declare everything when you enter Australia. Thanks."
