Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp has revealed how he was almost killed by a horse, while he was filming for his latest movie The Lone Ranger. Johnny says that he expected that fear would kick in but instead, he felt very calm about the whole situation and managed to keep a cool head.
Depp explained to ordeal to David Letterman, saying, "The horse was unaware that the saddle I was wearing to sit on top of it was sort of jerry-rigged, kind of faked. When we came down, the saddle slipped and I went to the left and (lost) the reins, somehow I had the wherewithal to grab his mane - all very calm for some reason, I figured fear would kick in, but it didn't."
He added, "I saw in front of my eyes these very muscular horse legs and the striations of muscles moving, this kind of death machine. One word popped into my head - hooves! You know? Hooves. In any case, mind the hooves. The one thing that saved me was the horse's instinct to lift his front legs and go over me. If not, it was coming straight down into the head"
Johnny Depp plays Tonto to Armie Hammer's John Reid aka The Lone Ranger, in the movie, which has been directed by Gore Verbinski and is set to be released on July 3 in the US, before then being released on August 9 in the UK.
