Happy New Year! Johnny Depp praises some of his fansites in Moviefone's "Unscripted" interview

The Zone welcomes 2008 with a wonderful comment Johnny Depp made in the recent “Unscripted” interview he and Tim Burton did for Moviefone, in which the men interviewed each other using questions that Moviefone’s readers submitted online. Tim asks Johnny, “Do you ever go online to see what your fans are saying?” Of course one would expect the answer to be “No, of course not,” but instead Johnny says this:

JOHNNY DEPP: There are a couple of sites that are actually very, very helpful . . . like, a couple of them I can access and I can see what’s happening before, like, before I know, before my agent knows . . . .

TIM BURTON: There’s a lot of stuff that’s not accurate, isn’t there? I mean–

JOHNNY DEPP: Yeah, but they sift through somehow, miraculously, they . . . these people are able to sift through and get to the, you know, the actual part of it, you know, the truth. [. . .] Either that or they know, they’re familiar enough with me and, you know, who I am, that . . . they can slice away the crap, you know what I mean, and go straight to the heart of the matter. It’s, it’s . . . they’re amazing; it’s really . . . a lot of information out there.
