Danish director LASSE HALLSTROM is taking every opportunity to apologise to CHOCOLAT star JOHNNY DEPP for almost killing him with an iron ball.
The movie maker got carried away while showing cast and crew his skills at playing boules and didn't see Depp in his line of fire. Hallstrom says, "I nearly killed Johnny Depp. I'm so, so sorry." Depp adds, "Lasse had overshot and the ball came pretty close."
