Transcendence's Johnny Depp Shares A Weird Story About Chinese Quadruplets And 3 Other Gems
He Has Had Some Very Weird Times In ChinaIn the last few years, international film audiences have become an extremely influential force in Hollywood, and there are few places where this is more true than in China. The Asian nation has about 1.3 billion potential movie-goers living in its populace, and studios see the potential to make a lot of money by getting their films wider exposure over there. Because of this, earlier this year Johnny Depp took a flight to China to promote the upcoming release of Transcendence, and his time over there was strange to say the least.
Discussing his time visiting the Middle Kingdom, Depp said that there was a great deal of culture shock involved, as the world over there is so different from our own. He described feeling "a real warmth in the people" and said that the people were very sweet and welcoming, but also that there was plenty of strange stuff going down that he’d "rather not talk about ever again in [his] life." Talking about his experience appearing on a bizarre Chinese television program, Depp said,
" There were the four quadruplet Chinese boys dressed in Shaolin priest outfits with the character…"Transcendence" comes out to four Chinese characters. They had shaved those characters onto those little boys' heads. So they come out on stage with me. So I’m pretty shy. I tend to run when that kind of thing happens. Little boys with their heads shaved with the name of the film. That scares me. But I trusted the little boys."
Seems like something you could certainly call a "unique experience."
