Johnny Depp Upset New Movie Held Back Cocks

Fighting cocks that is.

In Johnny Depp's new movie The Rum Diary, based on the best-selling book by Hunter S. Thompson, there is a scene with a cock fight.

The fight used real cocks but had to follow the American Humane Association rules.

"They harnessed the cocks with pieces of invisible monofilament (to stop them going for the kill). We did hold them back. We did. I think it was stupid."

We're gonna have to agree with the Humane Association on this one, sorry Johnny.

Toning down the cock fights wasn't the only thing changed in the movie but Johnny, being a friend of the late Hunter S. Thompson, made sure things stay true, not to the book, but to Hunter's vision.

"The most arduous part of making it was just every day sort of policing it, being the police of what Hunter would or would have wanted, and really going, All right, here’s the scene. That’s great. Here’s a scene, but we have to police this scene.

Some things work in books that just don’t work in movies and Hunter understood that. He understood it. He understood."

All we know is we're glad they didn't host a real cock fight.
