Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow and Paul Bettany joined chat show host Ellen DeGeneres this week to talk about their new film Mortdecai…but ended up revealing a lot about themselves instead.
It’s all thanks to a little game called ‘Never Have I Ever’. DeGeneres asked them all a series of questions and they simply had to hold up their paddle with ‘I have’ or ‘I have never’ depending on the truth – and the revelations tumbled out.
Have they, for example, ever been to a nude beach? That’s a yes from Bettany and Depp and a no from the two ladies. Have they ever been arrested? That’s another yes from the two men, and a no each from the women. Have they ever lied to get out of a speeding ticket… oh, why that’s a yes from Bettany, a no from Depp, a yes from Paltrow and a no from DeGeneres. And when asked if they’d seen another member of the Mortdecai cast naked, well, Paltrow has a change of heart about which way round her paddle should go…
