Here's What Johnny Depp Is Really Drinking On Screen
By BOSHIKA GUPTA
While lots of actors prefer consuming colored water or something like iced tea instead of hard liquor, Johnny Depp goes for the actual drink to keep things as real as possible during filming. He allegedly had 11 shots of Jack Daniels while shooting for his 1993 film, "Arizona Dream."
When Depp was working on "The Rum Diary," he was determined to pay homage to his late friend, writer Hunter S. Thompson. The entire crew had quite a bit of whiskey while producing the film and stuck to Thompson's drink of choice, Chivas Regal.
Depp's drinking habit has also impacted his work in some ways. According to reports, he was accustomed to drinking a bit too much and showing up late to work while filming "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales."
