Johnny Depp, Natalie Portman star in 3 new Paul McCartney videos
A clip from a new music video starring Johnny Depp and Natalie Portman for a song from ex-Beatle Paul McCartney’s new “Kisses on the Bottom” album has leaked, one of three videos for the song “My Valentine,” all three of which will be officially released at an as-yet-undisclosed location today in Los Angeles.
The 25-second excerpt now up on YouTube is described only as “Johnny Depp Video,” and there’s no sound, just the actor and amateur musician doing sign language while cradling a guitar in his lap. It can be seen here:
Reportedly, Depp stars in one video, Portman stars in a second, and they appear together in the third. The Sun tabloid in England has a photo of Depp and McCartney chatting and other shots of Depp and Portman from what is said to be the set where the videos were filmed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister.
McCartney himself is said to have directed all three videos, inspired by an idea from his daughter, fashion designer Stella McCartney.
The full videos are expected to go live on Saturday. “My Valentine” is one of two McCartney originals on the “Kisses” album, which consists predominantly of vintage songs McCartney loved in his youth.
