Johnny Depp reminisces about the "absurd" '70s for Dark Shadows. Hi there, I'm Lauren Bradshaw, and we have your look at what Johnny has to say about the decade and the nice things his leading ladies have to say about him. It's in today's PopSugar Rush. CHLOE GRACE MORETZ: Are you stoned or something? JOHNNY DEPP: They tried stoning me, my dear, it did not work. In the upcoming movie Dark Shadows, Johnny Depp plays a vampire who's transported to the 70s, but when it comes to Johnny himself, it sounds like he'd rather not relive the decade, calling it . . . JOHNNY DEPP: "the worst time aesthetically in human existence" [laughs] JOHNNY DEPP: "Kids, people of that era accepted troll dolls, and macrame, and lava lamps, and pet rocks . . ." Johnny was just nine years old in 1972, the year the movie takes place. But while he's speaking out about his dislike for the era, his Dark Shadows leading ladies can't stop talking about how much they love working with him. CHLOE GRACE MORETZ: He is one of the coolest and most humble guys I've ever met . . . MICHELLE PFEIFFER: He's just one of the most gifted actors working today . . . EVA GREEN: He has the most intense eyes, he doesn't move, and then it's just like — thunder. Dark Shadows is actually based on a late '60s, early '70s TV series, which Johnny says was one of his favorites, though this new remake does have its differences. JOHNNY DEPP: It's sort of taking what they did on the series and heightening the universe, that world little bit . . . so it's a fine line between soap opera and reality. The film comes to theaters on May 11.
