Joe Rogan believes the mental conditions of actors like Will Smith and Johnny Depp are caused by their film roles. Further damaged by their choice of life partners.
The podcast host was discussing talented actors with his guest, Tony Hinchcliffe. He claimed that performers in these film roles often let emotional roles bleed into their personal lives. They brought up recent examples, including Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars and issues that came to light during Depp’s ongoing lawsuit with his ex-wife Amber Heard.
Joe Rogan Thinks Will Smith and Johnny Depp Must Be “A Little Crazy”
We know that a host of The Joe Rogan Experience has never been shy about picking controversial topics as he recently focused on Roe v. Wade, with his position surprising many on the Internet.
Rogan said on his podcast:
“To be one of those people, whether it’s Mel Gibson or one of those types of actors, to be incredibly good in a movie, you have to be a little crazy.”
He referred to multi-Oscar winner Gibson as he faced a lot of controversy during his career. Including accusations of anti-Semitism, homophobia and sexual misconduct. Hinchcliffe talked about Smith slapping Rock as an example of his role in KingRichard affecting his mental state. Rogan agreed:
“He’s an amazing actor, isn’t he? He shows emotion in his film, it’s so real. The guy is probably always on the verge of cry, it’s probably a mess.”“I mean, the way his wife [Jada Pinkett Smith] smiled after Chris Rock was slapped. Everything was just, oh my god. Like, he’s under a spell, like he’s been captured by witchcraft.”
“He’s one of the greatest movie stars of all time, and he lives in hell.”
To prove his point about Will and Jada’s relationship, he shared a clip of Jada filming Will without his permission, which she later posted online. As another example of actors in troubling personal situations, Rogan shifted to the current trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. He hasn’t held back in his words of the case so far.
“The trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, like whoa, you feel jealous that some people are movie stars? Yeah? You wanna know how they are behind the scenes? When there’s that witch who convinces the super millionaire to don’t sign a prenup so she can get all the money out of him Throw a f****** glass bottle, cut off his finger, beat him then go to the press and tell everyone that Johnny beat her.”
