Johnny Depp's expressionless apology may have raised eyebrows, but he couldn’t help but smirk as he joked about the incident during a press conference in London on Sunday.
"I'm going to do this everywhere I go. I would really like to apologize for not smuggling my dogs into England because it would have been a bad thing to do," Depp quipped, while promoting his new film, Alice Through the Looking Glass.
Depp and Heard found themselves in hot water last year after Heard brought their dogs Pistol and Boo into Australia without putting the Yorkshire Terriers through required quarantine procedures.
After Heard, 30, pleaded guilty to falsifying documents in order to sneak the dogs into the country, a Queensland court let her off on a good behavior bond.
Two further charges were dropped after the pair agreed to record footage in which they highlight the importance of Australia's strict biosecurity rules.
The resulting video became the butt of jokes around the globe due to the couple's emotionless tone and awkward demeanor, many comparing the recording to a hostage video.
Showing his sense of humor, Depp, 52, brought up the incident during a photo call and tea for press at London's Corinthia Hotel.
Tim Burton, producer for Alice Through the Looking Glass, also got in on the joke, piping in, "I forgot to tell you. They’re dead. I just sat on them upstairs by accident.” Depp responded: “I tried to kill them after Australia."
