Johnny Depp appeared on the "Late Show with David Letterman," Thursday night. At a certain point during the interview, Depp talked about a close call he had on the set of his new movie, "The Lone Ranger," in which he was nearly trampled by a horse.

While riding his horse in the film, Depp says the animal decided to jump over a couple of bumps in the trail. He was riding on a special saddle, which makes it appear as if he's riding bareback, but isn't safe on a jumping horse. During one of the jumps, the saddle slid to the left, leaving Depp hanging off the side of the horse, with no way to pull himself back up.

He says he had to make a decision, "Will I go with the beast until someone wrangles it, or will I drop?" Depp chose the latter, falling on his back under the horse. »
