“It is only a doubt – I’m not obsequious anything,” Depp
said, according to a Guardian. “By a way, this is going to be
in a press. It will be horrible. we like that we are all a part
of it.”

Depp continued: “When was a final time an actor assassinated a
president?”

It was 1865, when John Wilkes Booth killed President Abraham
Lincoln.

“I wish to qualify, we am not an actor. we distortion for a living,” Depp
said. “However, it has been a while and maybe it is time,” he
said.

Libertine,” a film about a second Earl of Rochester, with
executive Julian Temple.
