Johnny Depp says he fell asleep ‘about 15 times’ during Black Mass screening

Initial reviews of Black Massmay be positive, but star Johnny Depp told Jimmy Kimmel earlier this week that he fell asleep “about 15 times’’ during a screening of the movie at the Venice International Film Festival.

“I have a problem watching films of any kind, unless it’s a documentary … I become narcoleptic,’’ said Depp, who plays notorious Boston gangster James “Whitey’’ Bulger in the new movie.
