Depp can wield a sword – but the good money has to be on Joyce when it comes to hand-to-hand…
Johnny Depp has joked he would fly to Australia and “assault” Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce if his wife is sent to prison for bringing their dogs Pistol and Boo into the country.
Earlier this year, Mr Joyce said the dogs were illegally imported without meeting Australia’s import conditions, after Depp and his wife Amber Heard brought them to the Gold Coast during filming of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
Mr Joyce issued an ultimatum to Depp at the time saying the dogs should “bugger off” back to the United States or be put down.
The dogs were flown back to California a few days later, but commonwealth biosecurity charges against Heard were due to be presented to the Southport Magistrate’s Court last week.
The case was adjourned until November 2 after the star did not attend.
