Hoffman's Finger Chat With Depp's Dad

DUSTIN HOFFMAN found a friend in JOHNNY DEPP's dad on the set of JM BARRIE biopic NEVERLAND after losing the tip of his finger in a freak deckchair accident.

Hoffman had to have his finger stitched back together in a London hospital after a faulty chair sliced through his digit.

The incident made the actor fascinated by the fact that co-star Depp's father JOHN - a guest on the set - had lost his finger.

Hoffman says, "It was the best experience I ever had because I was on morphine the entire time.

"I come into Johnny's camper the next day and his father is visiting him so I'm showing him my finger and his dad comes up and goes, 'Join the club.' He's missing an entire finger."
