It seems Johnny Depp has well and truly fallen out of love with Australia.

The Alice Through The Looking Glass star took time out of his press tour for the film to mock the apology video he and his wife Amber Heard made after they were caught smuggling their two dogs into the US.

The 52-year-old finally made it known how he felt about recording the message to a room of reporters at a press conference.

“I’m going to do this everywhere I go,” the actor confessed.

“I would really like to apologise for NOT smuggling my dogs into England, because it would have been a bad thing to do.”

The comment was met with an erruption of laughter from the crowd. Johnny, feeling bolstered by the response, added, “Because the Australians, they’re chipper.”

And it seems Tim Burton has also jumped on the bandwagon, with the director chiming in with, “I forgot to tell you. They’re dead. I sat on them upstairs by accident.”

“I tried to kill them after Australia,” the Pirates of the Caribbean star replied.

Amber and Johnny left court in Australia amid a flurry of media.

Johnny’s 30-year-old wife, Amber, narrowly avoided a possible jail sentence and $100,000 fine after she was caught not declaring she flew their Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo into Australia on a private jet.

Her husband had been in town filming a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

At the time, Australian politician Barnaby Joyce called for the pet pooches to either leave the country immediately or be euthanased.

No stranger to making fun of Australia, Johnny later said, “I killed my dogs, and a I ate them, under orders from some sweaty, big-gutted man from Australia.”

He was said to be referring to Barnaby.

The long and drawn out saga was referred to as Australia’s “War on Terrier”.

Instead of imposing jail time or a fine, the judge presiding over the case decided the movie stars should issue the bizarre apology video, as it would “offer more deterrence” for the Australian Department of Agriculture.
