Johnny Depp has decided to do less of his own stunts after injuring his back on the set of ‘The Lone Ranger‘.
Johnny injured his back shooting ‘The Lone Ranger’. The 49-year-old actor was left writhing in pain on two occasions during action scenes for the Western film – in which he plays Native American Tonto opposite Armie Hammer, who portrays the title character – and he has now realized he can’t do many of his own stunts and needs to rely more on a double.
A source told America’s Star magazine: ”While it’s been hard to accept that he can’t perform such demanding feats anymore, Johnny is seeing it. He threw out his back twice while shooting the movie and then had to push through, getting massages in between takes.”
As well as suffering with back pain, Johnny has also been struggling with insomnia on set.
The Johnny Depp Web staff wishes him nothing but the best and much health! May he get well soon!
