And my point is that the cast of Fantastic Beasts looked an interviewer in the eye and said ‘I had no idea Johnny Depp was in this movie’ yet movie evidence would suggest that they were a) lying and b) magic is real and their memories were wiped. The point of my post was that actors, people who are paid to pretend to be other people, lie and they’re good at it. It’s what they do.
And by ‘everyone’, you actually mean Felicity and Pablo are the only people who have said anything point blank. Pablo also lies and has contradicted himself many a time, and he also says not to take anything he says as canon. I chose to wait until movie evidence debunks a theory because actors and movie producers are actively attempting to deceive you so their movies do well. That’s just smart advertising.
casual reminder in the wake of felicity’s ‘psa’: actors lie. they lie because they’re told to. especially around secretive releases. the cast of fantastic beasts and where to find them swore they had no idea that johnny depp was in the movie and look what happened there. not saying this to say that what she’s saying is wrong, but just to be mindful that actors have bosses and those bosses want secrecy, you know, to make you go see the movie.
“We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers… and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.”
omg like two or three years ago i went to see that johnny depp movie where he was a detective, i think it was called Mordecai??????? It was honestly so bad the story was crap they jokes were flat and awful and it was genuinely a terrible film lol 🌟
