Depp Dubbed 'Arsehole' By Blur Star

Actor JOHNNY DEPP has been branded an "arsehole" after trying to start a fight with BLUR bassist ALEX JAMES. The rocker reveals he found it difficult to interact with other celebrities when his band was propelled to fame in the 1990s - and stars like Depp did little to help the situation. He recalls, "I met (Depp) in Soho House, and he was an arsehole. He wanted to talk to the girl I was with, and he poured a pint of Guinness over me. Very weird. "I think he wanted me to (hit him). But I just went home with the girl instead, which would have hurt him more."

This is nothing new. Go back into some of his earlier interviews and bios. He talks about carousing, thrashing hotel rooms. Letterman asked him about the hotel incident and he and Paul agreed Johnny is the coolest guy they ever met. I have poured a drink or two over some idiot's head and find it very satisfying, lol. But Johnny doesn't need defending, it just pisses me off cause I'm a fan and I adore him.!JOON

This from a man who stated awhile ago that he "was the second drunkest member of the drunkest band in Britain." Go figure. Who's the arsehole?

hmmm... he'd have to be one of the only people to say that about Johnny... so does he really think anyones going to agree with him?i wanna know when this supposedly happened though (i don't think it was in 1990 because that's when he said the band was formed... but didn't actually say that the event happened then.. it wouldn't have been in the 2000s though, it was at least 10 years ago though prolly :P stupid man.x Nash

This Alex James must be really bored with his life to bring up something that happened over 10 years ago. Talk about a grudge! Whether Johnny did it or not, he's all grown up now, a family man, and this guy isn't even a thought. Besides I'm sure Alex James is no saint and most likely has done worse things. Yo Alex!! Get over it!!

It is pretty clear to see who exactly the 'areshole' is and it certainly aint Johnny Depp! I have one thing to say to Alex James: "Go f**k yourself you loser"
