Depp Hated Working With Horses

Actor JOHNNY DEPP has named and shamed the worst movie co-stars he's ever worked with - horses. The Hollywood star was dragged through mud and manure by the towering animals in the 1999 film Sleepy Hollow on director Tim Burton's instruction. And the mucky stunt has put him off working with animals for life. He says, "One morning when we were filming Sleepy Hollow, Tim called me to the set, pointed to two large horses strapped to a carriage and said, 'This is what we are going to be doing today.' "I was to hold on to the carriage behind the horses, being dragged along through the muck. The horses must have fed on curry. I've never smelt anything like that."

Can't imagine Johnny hating horses...he owns that very same horse...some people just have nothing better to do with their time but try to cause trouble for others!!! I own horses and as much as I love them...they do have a certain um..odor at times...consider how big they are..and when they are sweaty well....

Margarey... I definately will go and see it - but it doesn't open in theatres in Denmark until February 1st. I'm dying to see this movie as I always am, when there's a new JD movie. I always go and see Johnny's movies, mostly more than once, and I do own all his movies on DVD. I am a fan and I do support him - in all ways I can. He's the best actor there is at the moment and will be (if he keeps working) for a long long time!!!

???????????Where does it say he hates working with horses? I saw the interview. He never said that. In fact, he adopted the horse who was named "Gunpowder" in the movie because he was going to be sent to "the glue factory". If anyone was strapped down in the movie like he was, I'm sure it wouldn't have been a pleasant experience for anyone either, with the potential of the horses urinating while whoever was being dragged. Yep! I saw the movie. You guys need to listen more intently to these interviews. Then you'd get your facts straight!

Margaray:Chill. It just came out! They only released the film to 1,249 theaters across the country and that's not much. Some people don't like to go on opening day because it's jam packed. Give it alittle time. The movie did approximately 13 million over the weekend which really isn't bad considering how many theaters showed it. Relax! Don't forget, it's going to be released overseas in January.
