Christina Ricci says Johnny Depp taught her about being gay when she was a kid

Speaking to Andy Cohen for his SiriusXM show, the ‘Yellowjackets’ actress said Johnny Depp explained homosexuality to her ‘in the simplest terms’ during a phone call while filming ‘Mermaids with Cher and Depp’s girlfriend, Winona Ryder.

“There was something going on on set and somebody wasn’t nice to somebody else. And they were like, ‘Oh, well, he might be homophobic. And then I was like, ‘Well, I don’t understand what this is,'” Ricci recalled in the interview. “And I was in Winona’s trailer and she was like, ‘I don’t know how (explain).’ So she put me on the phone with Johnny, and Johnny explained it to me.”

Ricci said she was 9 at the time and Depp explained the term to her “very simply”.

“He was like, ‘It’s when a man wants to have sex with a man and when a woman wants to have sex with a woman,'” Ricci said. “And I was like, ‘Ah, okay'”

Cohen joked that he didn’t know why Ryder asked Depp for help “when you have Cher in the next trailer.”

Ricci burst out laughing. “I know, we should have raced there.”

“Yellowjackets” was nominated for seven Emmy Awards last month, including Best Drama. Ricci was also nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
