'The Lone Ranger' star Johnny Depp kisses Jimmy Kimmel (Video)
Note to self: If you compliment Johnny Depp, he may kiss you. Three times.
Or at least that's what the 50-year-old heartthrob actor did when Jimmy Kimmel called him "very handsome" to his face while starting to interview him on his ABC talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Monday night.
Depp slowly stood up partially, leaned over to Kimmel and planted a kiss on his cheek. He then got up again and planted a quick one on his mouth.
"I'm done, I'm done," he said, as Kimmel chuckled and audience members screamed.
"I've lost my train of thought," the host said, fanning himself.
Depp then got up a third time and kissed Kimmel again, near his mouth.
"That's more kissing than I did in all of high school," Kimmel said, to which the actor responded: "Me too."
Check out 3 additional facts Johnny Depp revealed about himself during his interview on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!":
1. He got One Direction to come over to his house -- a gift for his daughter
In November 2012, Depp's daughter Lilly-Rose, who is now 14, posted on her Twitter page a picture of Depp posing with members of the popular boy band One Direction. The group had appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and the actor's daughter wanted to go see them.
"So I hooked it up," Depp said. "I arranged for her to go and see them on the show and then they wanted to come back [to our house] and say hi."
2. A teenage Johnny Depp did something out of the ordinary for his own music idol -- Iggy Pop.
Depp is originally from Kentucky and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music. He said that at age 17, he "adored" rocker Iggy Pop. His band got to open for him at a bar gig and Depp wanted to "make an impression" on the singer. So he started hurling expletives at him.
"I'm not sure he enjoyed it. I'm not sure I enjoyed it but he did walk up to me, like, as l close as he could possibly get without exchanging DNA and look me straight in the eye with these unwavering eyes that said, 'You little turd,'" the actor said, adding: "By the way, I was completely happy. I thought, 'I got him.'"
Depp and Iggy Pop went on to star together in the 1990 musical film "Cry-Baby."
3. "The Lone Ranger" star was adopted into an American Indian tribe -- and not all members were happy about it.
Depp plays an American Indian warrior named Tonto in "The Lone Ranger," Disney's new film adaptation of a popular story that inspired radio and TV shows and comic books. In May, the actor was adopted formally by the Oklahoma-based Comanche Indian tribe.
We were doing the film and there was a great woman who was a longtime activist ... LaDonna Harris," Depp said. "She's my Comanche mother and she decided that she wanted to adopt me into the Comanchi nation."
When asked about the reaction of Harris' family members, Depp told Kimmel: "Some were happy."
For decades, various adaptations of "The Lone Ranger" have often been criticized over the portrayal of Tonto, who speaks broken English, lacks cultural traits and whose name means "fool" in Spanish." Depp has said his version is less subservient, honors the proud American Indian warrior and displays a dry sense of humor seen throughout Indian Country, the Associated Press reported.
American Indian actor Saginaw Grant, who plays Chief Big Bear in the new "Lone Ranger" movie, talked to OTRC.com at the film's premiere in June about some of the backlash that has already affected Depp.
"There's a few that have criticized him," Grant said. "But the people who have done that don't even know Johnny. They only know him by name, know that he's a movie star. They don't know what he's done for my people, the native people." (WATCH a video of the interview with Saginaw Grant at the "Lone Ranger" premiere.)
