Johnny Depp did not mince words when talking about President Donald Trump at the U.K.’s Glastonbury Festival on Thursday (June 22).
“Can we bring Trump here?” the Oscar-nominated actor asked a crowd while onstage at the music festival. “I think he needs help.”
Depp went on to ask, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”
The question drew loud cheers and some boos from the crowd as Depp shrugged. “I want to clarify: I’m not an actor. I lie for a living,” he continued. The star’s comment was in reference to John Wilkes Booth, the man who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theater in 1865. Booth, like Depp, was an actor.
Depp was at the festival to speak about his film The Libertine, which follows 17th-century poet John Wilmot, the Earl of Rochester.
