Johnny Depp Mocks Australia Dog-Smuggling Apology (Video)

Actor jokes about legal trouble in the land down under while promoting “Alice Through the Looking Glass” in England

After his Australian international incident, “Alice Through the Looking Glass” star Johnny Depp is wisely leaving his dogs stateside while in England. But that didn’t stop him from making a joke about the original situation while promoting his new film.

“I’m gonna do this everywhere I go,” Depp began. “I would really like to apologize for not smuggling my dogs into England, because it would have been a bad thing to do.”

The actor was mocking the odd, proof-of-life-style video he and his wife, Amber Heard, were forced to make after not declaring their dogs on a trip to Australia. The mea culpa was widely made fun of across late-night TV — and even by the Aussie deputy prime minister.

In his own self-deprecating opportunity, Depp continued: “Because the Australians, though a little chipper …”

He wisely stopped there, and was cut off (Read: saved) by his co-stars. One of those guys even quipped that he accidentally killed Depp’s dogs by sitting on them backstage.

“I tried to kill them after Australia,” Depp offered.
