When Christina Ricci needed a life lesson, Johnny Depp was there to give it to her straight.

During an interview with Andy Cohen for his SiriusXM show this week, the Yellowjackets star revealed she was 9 years old when she discovered “what homosexuality was” — and it was none other than Johnny Depp who explained it to her!

It all went down while the child star was on the set of 1990’s Mermaids alongside Cher and Johnny’s then-girlfriend Winona Ryder.
