Johnny Depp knows what you’ve probably been thinking vis-à-vis his olfactory presence, and he wants you to know it’s not true. While presenting an award at the second annual Beauty Awards this weekend, Depp addressed the long-standing rumors that he smells bad, claiming that, in fact, many people have told him he smells good. Recalling one interaction with strangers, Depp recalled, “They said, ‘You do look like a hobo, but you smell really good. And goddamn it, I smell really good!” Depp also claimed he was not mad about everyone thinking he smells bad, saying he actually found it funny, even.
