Was Johnny Depp drunk at the ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ premiere?


Here are some photos of Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska at last night’s London premiere of Alice Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to the wildly popular Alice in Wonderland adaptation by Tim Burton. Depp returns as the Mad Hatter, Mia returns as Alice, and Sacha Baron Cohen (also pictured) stars as Time. This film also features Alan Rickman’s last voice performance as the Blue Caterpillar.

Personally, I’m a little bit surprised that Amber Heard didn’t join her husband at this premiere – Amber loves a red carpet, and she loves the attention she gets from being on Johnny’s arm. I guess she’s working on Aquaman (she plays Aquaman’s wife) and maybe she couldn’t get away? Perhaps. Or maybe she didn’t want to prop up a totally sauced Johnny Depp one more time. Although I will say that Depp doesn’t look completely sh-t faced in these photos. I’d say he had a buzz, but wasn’t fall-down drunk.

Speaking of Johnny slurring his words uncomfortably, most of you have already seen this video, but it’s worth posting. Following Depp and Heard’s hilariously awkward video apology in Australia, Johnny declared this week that wherever he goes now, he’s going to awkwardly apologize. How drunk does he seem in this video?

More photos… allegedly, Mia is wearing Prada. It’s so blah, but then again… I’ve never thought Mia had any red-carpet “presence.” She’s a wonderful actress, but a failure as a fashionista. Isla Fisher looks pretty though.

    I can understand that Johnny is not into fashion and clothes.. but he could at least get ONE GOOD SUIT and wear it to death. This is horrible. Everything about it. It is ill fitting and those shoes. He could have some feet problems and need shoes that have more support. Fine.. but at least get the hotel to polish them. I think that is still done. I have no idea if he is drunk or medicated. I just hate the way he dresses. .

    • Esmom says:

      I agree that decent suit and shoes (and a shower!) could improve his appearance a lot. I gasped out loud at how horrific his suit looks. But even with an imaginary suit upgrade, he’s looking pretty rough.

    • Sarah(too) says:

      I’m focused on his mouth. It looks dark. Like rotten teeth dark. No good picture of him really smiling so it is hard to tell.

      • Rhiley says:

        There are no good pictures of his mouth in this lot, but yeah, he his mouth is disaster. Teeth missing all over the place. The ones still there are tiny and chipped. I don’t know what Amber Heard does to get through kissing him on the mouth but whatever it is…

      • Sarah(too) says:

        With all his money, why doesn’t he get them fixed? My word…..Charlie Sheen had a similar situation a few years ago (and likely for similar reasons).

      • Amy says:

        @Rhiley Are you sure you’ve had a good look at his teeth? Because he doesn’t have teeth missing all over the place or tiny and chipped teeth. .

        And I would kiss him in a heartbeat.

    • mary simon says:

      I’ve seen guys do the boho look in a way that looks kind of romantic and attractive-it can be done. But Johnny’s style is a greasy saucer who stumbled in off the street by mistake. The beat up-just came from a construction site-Frankenstein clunker boots are hard to ignore. He always wears some kind of clown shoes – his oversized brown and white wingtips come to mind. Since Johnny married Amber, he’s been wearing lifts. That’s why his ankles look elongated and his shoes are oversized, like Tom Cruise and Ian Somerhalder.

    • Amy says:

      Really? This is actually a good suit.

  2. Alix says:

    Funny — for decades, the man never aged a single day. Then BOOM! Drink’ll do that to ya, I guess.

    • Paula says:

      Right? It’s like all the hotness was gone with the snap of a finger.

    • Katie says:

      I was beginning to wonder if the devil reneged on the deal they made. Johnny has aged greatly in just a few months it seems.

    • HollyG says:

      I was just thinking that he looks better here than he has at other events!

      I detect an unwillingness to accept the fact that he is now in his mid 50s, so he stubbornly clings to the Rock and roll jewelry and the messy clothes and that mouth-breathing blonde person. He’s like Austin Powers with worse teeth.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Yes! Bloated, greasy, boozey grossness.

    • MC2 says:

      This is like watching Marlon Brando 2.0, only Johnny is not as much of an a$$hole.

  3. EM says:

    His teeth are horrendous.
    He is a halfway through to being a billionaire, but has the teeth of a hobo.

  4. Tangueita says:

    “Was Johnny Depp drunk?” – Is grass green?
    PS. Probably not in California though.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I was thinking, “Does the sun rise every day?”

    • marymoon says:

      Echoes my thought – was Johnny Depp AT the ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ premiere?

      Then yes, Johnny Depp was drunk at the ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ premiere.

  5. QueenE says:

    he looks bloated and awful

  6. Elsa says:

    I don’t think he was drunk during the premiere. He looked fine to me. He has lost some of the bloat so maybe there’s still hope. I’m also glad Heard wasn’t there. How long has it been since he attended a premiere alone? I also read he signed autographs for over an hour in the rain so kudos to him. I hope he’ll get over whatever is troubling him cause I’ve always been a fan and want to see him doing good. I’m not sure if Ms Heard is good for him though … She seems to care too much about herself to pay attention to her husband.

  7. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I don’t mean to be a goodie goodie, but I think it’s so annoying that he ridicules Australia for their laws about bringing animals into their country. It’s not funny. He acts like just because his dogs are cute and small, it’s mean of big old Australia to care, but those laws are there to protect the animals living in Australia and they should be respected.

    • SusanneToo says:


      • B n A fn says:

        You are not being a goodie, goodie. If Johnny believed he did nothing wrong why apologized. He is being a spoiled celeberity and mocking Australia laws. And btw, he’s as drunk as a skunk. Look at the way he’s trying to stand, cannot keep his balance.

    • Izzy says:

      You’re not being a goodie goodie. You’re simply not being an a-hole. Pity Mr. Depp doesn’t know how not to be one!

    • Maum says:

      I know. It’s arrogant and pathetic. These people have opportunities and perks that we lowly non-celebs can’t even imagine so the least they should do is respect the law of the countries they travel to.

      You’re not a goodie goodie. It’s common sense and, you know, THE LAW. And it’s there for a reason.

    • paolanqar says:

      He cowardly makes jokes of the rules now. Not so much while in Australia and facing the chance of going to jail.

      • elle says:

        YES, 1,000 times. That alone should invalidate his deal. Come get him and lock him up, Australia!

      • Amy says:

        Actually, he did make jokes about it last year when Heard was facing possible jail time. But he mostly made fun of the way Barnaby Joyce handled the situation.

        @elle They can’t “come get him and lock him up” because he’s not the one who got charged.

      • Liz says:

        @elle it’s not his deal. It was Amber’s. He was never going to get any punishment. She shanghaied him into that video because she knew it would help her case. Amber was the one charged. They are Amber’s dog’s. She lied on the passenger form. BOTH of them because according to her statement, she filled out his and hers because of his hand injury and he was heavily medicated.
        But she still won’t get anything because the deal was “public shamming” basically. Deal accomplished.
        He does need to shut up about though. But there was never, ever, any chance of Johnny going to jail or paying a fine or being charged. Only Amber Heard.

    • anon says:

      To be fair, I think he only made the joke to save Tim Burton. If you watch the whole thing someone asked a question about lgbt representation in cinema and Tim was all over the place saying cringey things and that’s where Depp said he was a lesbian woman and the about the joke about the Australian incident

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        In this case, you’re probably right, but he has make fun of it before.

      • Dana says:

        Yep. If Depp didn’t say what he said, Burton would’ve gotten in trouble.

      • Liz says:

        Nah the event was OVER and the host was rapping it up. Tim didn’t need to be bailed out, Depp just threw that out randomly. Tim bailed HIM out cause Johnny got halfway through and forgot his own punchline!

    • Duchess of Corolla says:

      Totally agree. Australia’s laws are in place for a reason, and Depp should respect them. If he doesn’t agree with them, he shouldn’t go to Australia.

    • Goodnight says:

      I totally agree. I’m Australian and I usually love poking fun at my country but this is NOT a joking matter. As Steve Irwin used to say in the ads, ‘quarantine matters’. He was a very flawed person on many fronts but he would have put them both in their place over this, without being a dick.

      Our ecosystem is so fragile. I’m glad this asshole thinks it’s something to be blase about, because we sure don’t.

  8. Mikie says:

    I miss 90s Johnny Depp. Just watched a Tom Petty documetary on Netflix. They showed the Into the great wide open video. He was so good looking back then.

    • JustCrimmles says:

      I love it when I am reminded of things I want to watch in the most random places. Thanks for mentioning the documentary! And I miss Tom Petty videos.

  9. Mia4s says:

    The first movie was awful and this one is apparently worse. No thank you, to any of it.

  10. LannisterForever says:

    I adore Mia’s dress, but I agree about her red carpet precense. Imagine it on Isla!

    • tracking says:

      +1 Meanwhile Isla’s dress is a little too junior prom c.1988.

    • Erinn says:

      Oh man, me too. I would LOVE to own that dress, though I’d ditch the train just for practicality sake.

      But I mean, I’m not a fancy person by any means, and I’d probably just wear it to dinner in our tiny little town. It’s not what I would have expected of a red carpet gown.

      But I still want it.

    • Birdy says:

      I agree!

  11. roxane says:

    I actually love Mia’s dress and her hair.

  12. elizabethswann says:

    Oh. My. Did Johnny buy that jacket at Liberace’s yard sale?

  13. Melody says:

    I’d be “working on” Aquaman, too. Mmmmmm Momoa…

  14. Sarah01 says:

    I find Mia so pretty but that haircut does not suit her. I wished she’d do a bob or mid length hair.

  15. Skins says:

    Not aging well at all

  16. Duchess of Corolla says:

    Sacha Baron Cohen looks like he’d rather be anywhere than the premiere.

  17. Lucy says:

    Is it weird that I prefer SBC over Johnny here…?

  18. Kitten says:

    I’m actually starting to feel legit bad for Johnny. Sigh.

    • frisbee says:

      And me, I think he’s genuinely in trouble and needs help, I hope he gets it… he still has the capacity to be a fabulous actor, it’s tragic to see so much natural talent go to waste.

      • Kitten says:

        Me too, Frisbee. He was one of my faves back in the day which is why it pains me to see what he’s become.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I agree. I watched a trailer for Alice and he was really good. He has talent, but he’s going to ruin his life if he isn’t careful and it’s sad.

      • Kitten says:

        He’s super-talented and by all accounts, a really nice guy.

        (not overlooking the dog incident however which showed that he is capable of being a spoiled movie star like the rest of them)

        The comments about his looks are so harsh yet so undeniably accurate.

        But I’m still not-so-secretly rooting for him.

      • Liz says:

        me three!

        He’s not well and it’s getting harder to laugh at.

  19. iheartjacksparrow says:

    DM had some close-up photos of Johnny and his pupils were barely visible. I did an internet search, and apparently that’s caused by opiates such as heroin. So I think he was a little more than drunk.

    • Liz says:

      Agree. He admitted to “pills” before and considering he nearly chopped off his finger last year, and you KNOW he got some good shit to deal with that, I wouldn’t be surprised if he is hooked on opiates, either prescription or non.
      He’s been giving me a “stoned” vibe more than a drunk vibe for a while.
      And if he’s doing both, which he likely is, that’s only gonna make it messier at times!

  20. WTF says:

    As for where is Amber Heard? She was in LA. She called our office to say that she would be out shopping. My boss decided not to go because he knew Depp wouldn’t be around and says that the outlets aren’t paying enough for pictures of just her to make it worth his while. Evidently, given her current status, there is very little public interest in her, unless she is standing next to Johnny Depp.

    So my bet is that she’s getting tired of having to prop up her drunken husband on red carpets.

    • Liz says:

      he’s not in need of propping up when she’s not around!

      Not to say he’s sober, but he was certainly more together than in her presence. I don’t think HE likes having her at his events.

  21. mmm says:

    I don’t think he was drunk. There are many interviews of him on the red carpet and he seemed like always. He always speaks like that
    About Amber, i think she didn’t attend because Johnny’s in London (or Europe) since around a week ago, when Amber was still in New York for the Met Gala. Johnny had some mysterious business meetings in London and Paris, before the promotional stuff of “Alice Through the looking glass”, that i guess could be linked to his new project about Dominique Strauss-Kahn with Marion Cotillard

    • Liz says:

      mysterious meeting in Paris = night out getting wasted. photo proof.

      Though his ex Vanessa was also in France.

      All meetings related to his new project were done in LA. The ink was dry before he got to London or it wouldn’t be announced publicly.

      • iheartjacksparrow says:

        The movie’s getting jokes on the media blogs since it’s being announced as “‘The Libertine’ starring Johnny Depp.” Someone needs to tell Brett Ratner: been there, done that.

      • Liz says:

        iheart I honestly think they may keep the title because it sounds like the whole thing is going for cheeky. They may try to French it up like Le Libertine’ LOL.

  22. Dana says:

    This is the best he’s looked in a while. I don’t think he was drunk.

  23. Guest says:

    Wtf happened to this man? He was pure perfection once. Btw does Mia and Jesse do the carpet together? Ever?

  24. Danny says:

    I actually LOVE that jacket he’s wearing. More like this please, Johnny!

  25. Nickim says:

    You are misinformed, Aquaman? Only next year, maybe from June, July. We will update this site’re misinformed. lol

  26. Nickim says:

    And he’s great, elegant, cheerful and spoke for time with the fans. This site or the writer needs glasses.

  27. Magnoliarose says:

    He just makes me cringe. He’s a mess and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. That clip was very awkward.

  28. Liz says:

    Johnny went to Paris the night before the press conference and pulled an all nighter so was he drunk/buzzed in that video? YES.
    At the premiere, I think he was stoned. I think that’s what he does now before red carpets.

  29. KikiGee says:

    I watched the video of this earlier. He was so long winded and tedious the other guys in the panel had to jump in with some jokes and liven it up. There was next-to-no audience laughter at his ‘joke’.
    I can’t tell whethet he’s drunk, got wet brain, or is just not-too-sharp. And, really, who cares? In fact, why am I even commenting?

  30. Emily C. says:

    What goes around doesn’t usually come around in this lifetime, especially for rich people. But it seems to be for Depp. And in this, I’m not talking about his cheating on and leaving Vanessa Paradis. I’m talking about before that, when he made a video defending Roman Polanski, claiming that artistes were allowed to do whatever they liked to we poor muggles. His downhill slide since then has been amazing.

    Sadly, he’s still ridiculously wealthy and has a private island. But we muggles take what we can get.

    • Pandora says:

      He didn’t leave Vanessa.

      He was asked about Polanski in a press conference and defended him because he worked with him and thought he was a nice family guy that wouldn’t do something like that, but he never claimed that “artistes were allowed to do whatever they liked to we poor muggles.” He didn’t even sign the petition.

      Btw, Alice in Wonderland went on to gross over a billion dollars AFTER that. His career is fine, he got great reviews and awards attention for Black Mass and this movie will likely make money.

      He’s actually one of the nicest guys in Hollywood, and he’s done a LOT of good deeds. Why only focus on one bad thing? He is human, nobody says the right things all the time.
