In an interview with Vanity Fair, Johnny Depp talked about how Disney executives were less than thrilled with the fact that he played his character in Pirates of the Carribean as a gay guy, because clearly there’s nothing gay about a handsome, smooth-talking guy who hangs out on a boat with a bunch of muscular shirtless guys and wears eyeliner. So how long before Jack Sparrow gets to come out on the cover of People magazine?
Johnny Depp’s flamboyant portrayal of Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean” was good enough for an Oscar nomination, but the actor says Disney was less than thrilled. Depp talked about it in an interview with rocker Patti Smith for the January edition of Vanity Fair magazine. Depp said Disney “couldn’t stand” his Sparrow and one person there even asked if Sparrow was gay. Depp told the Disney executive “all my characters are gay,” and he said that “really made her nervous.” SOURCE
Yeah, I bet they would be nervous, considering there are no other gay Disney characters. Except Mulan. And everyone in High School Musical. And Perry the Platypus from Phineas & Ferb. Yup, sorry Disney, Perry the Platypus is ours now. Whatcha gonna do about it bitches? SCORE ONE FOR TEAM GAY!
