Well, I never saw this one coming. While it’s not terribly surprising that Johnny Depp would be a fan of “South Park,” it’s slightly more unanticipated that Penelope Cruz considers herself an avid fan of the Comedy Central series as well. In a very odd twist, it turns out that behind-the-set antics led to Penelope losing a bet with Johnny, and her punishment was to dress up like Mr. Hankey, The Christmas Poo, and walk around on set for all to see.
“Johnny and I are both fans of South Park and the character Mr Hankey the Christmas Poo. It’s absurd but very funny. Johnny made this outfit for me and we had a bet which I lost. And I had to wear the Poo outfit on the set.
“He was on the floor laughing and crying and he took a thousand pictures of me which I hope never come to light. But, of course, now that I’ve said it, I’m sure they will appear somewhere.”
Seriously. Apparently, Penelope is a pretty good sport who keeps her word in such matters, but I think the lesson here is clear … never make a bet with Johnny Depp.
