Johnny Depp - Johnny Depp Disturbed By Chinese Head-shaving Stunt

Johnny Depp was freaked out during a recent trip to China to promote his new movie Transcendence when young boys with the film's title shaved into their scalps were presented to him.

The movie star admits he really enjoyed his Chinese trip, during which he became one of the first westerners to visit an abandoned bomb factory that has become a thriving artist colony, but there was one weird moment he can't get out of his mind.

He tells Wenn, "On the whole, I found a real warmth in the people there. They were very sweet and welcoming. It was quite a turn-out that we had and a lot of strange things went down that I'd rather not talk about ever again in my life.

"There were these four little quadruplet Chinese boys dressed in kind of priest outfits, and Transcendence comes out to (is written with) four Chinese characters (sic). Well, they'd shaved those characters onto those little boys' heads to bring them out on stage with me.

"I'm pretty shy, so I tend to run when that kind of thing happens. Little boys with their heads shaved into the name of the film; that scares me a little."
