Johnny Depp feels sorry for Angelina, says Disney hated "gay" Jack Sparrow

.
Johnny Depp loaned his supreme hotness to Vanity Fair for their latest issue - smouldering on the cover and dishing on Angelina Jolie's hellish life and Disney's homophobia.

Johnny is set to hit screens alongside Angelina in The Tourist, and said he doesn't envy her paparazzi-plagued lifestyle.

“Poor thing, dogged by paparazzi, her and her husband, Brad... all their kids,” he told rocker Patti Smith (guest writing for Vanity Fair).

"There are times when you see how ridiculous is this life, how ludicrous it is, you know, leaving your house every morning and being followed by paparazzi.”

Johnny said the media attention was so fierce that he and Ange were “having to hide, sometimes not even being able to talk to each other in public because someone will take a photograph and it will be misconstrued and turned into some other s---.”

Johnny gave the interview on the set of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie, where he revealed his now-iconic Captain Jack Sparrow character wasn't embraced at first by movie bosses at Disney.

“They couldn’t stand him. They just couldn’t stand him,” he said. “I think it was Michael Eisner, the head of Disney at the time, who was quoted as saying, ‘He’s ruining the movie.’"

As you'd imagine, Johnny didn't give a crap that they weren't into his campy portrayal.

“Upper-echelon Disney-ites, going, 'What’s wrong with him? Is he, you know, like some kind of weird simpleton? Is he drunk? By the way, is he gay?'And so I actually told this woman who was the Disney-ite... ‘But didn’t you know that all my characters are gay?’ Which really made her nervous.”
