Steadman’s praise for Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp is “one of the easiest people to talk to you could ever imagine”, according to the British cartoonist at the centre of a new documentary.

Ralph Steadman, the subject of For No Good Reason, heaped praise on the Hollywood star, who appears in the film about his work.

Speaking before the film’s screening at the BFI London Film Festival, Steadman reminisced about time he spent with Depp and writer Hunter S. Thompson at the latter’s home in Colorado.

“He’s a lovely fellow. I met him in the Nineties. He was at Hunter S. Thompson’s farm in Colorado – this was before he committed suicide of course.

“He used to turn up to see Hunter as I turned up, but I would turn up to see Hunter because we were working together doing gonzo journalism,” he said.

Steadman worked with Thompson most famously on Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, while Depp acted in The Rum Diary last year which was based on one of Thompson’s best known novels of the same name.
