Kate Winslet says Johnny Depp interrupted filming on their latest movie – by secretly using a fart machine.
The sexy actress, who stars with Johnny in new movie ‘Finding Neverland’, revealed the 41-year-old actor disrupted the shoot by playing practical jokes during intense takes.
She told Britain’s The Sun newspaper : “There was one scene when we were having dinner together. It was a difficult scene and that’s when Johnny did one of the most triumphant things I have ever seen an actor do – he had a fart machine under the table.”
But 29-year-old Kate, who is married to director Sam Mendes, claims the cast had no idea the stunt was a joke – and thought someone had really broken wind.
Stunning Kate admitted both she and her four child-co-stars struggled to ignore the trick because no-one knew what to say.

She confessed: “The first take was priceless. The boys didn’t want to speak, to say, ‘Somebody’s farted.’ But then it happened again and we were bursting with laughter.”
But Kate admits Johnny’s fart machine actually helped make the shoot a success.
She added: “That was the thing that made the scene work. That was totally down to Johnny.”
It’s not the first time Johnny has been caught using the realistic machine on the set of his films.
Three years ago, Penelope Cruz claimed the heartthrob star sabotaged her scenes on the set of their film ‘Blow’ with his comic prank.
And Johnny, who has two children with French beauty Vanessa Paradis, has revealed he has used the machine in a string of other confined spaces. He said: “That kind of thing is particularly fun on an airplane and it’s quite fun in an elevator too.”
