Courtney Love - who has a history of drink and drug abuse - has revealed Johnny Depp once saved her life by giving her CPR
Johnny Depp once saved Courtney Love's life.
The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star had to give the Hole singer - who has a history of drink and drug abuse - the kiss of life when she collapsed after a heavy session.
She said: "Nobody has ever loaned me money. I mean, I was going to die on a few occasions. Johnny Depp gave me CPR on one. That's as close as I ever got. I was watching that movie where he plays Dillinger, and I was like 'Mother f***er, I never had myself any JD except CPR.' "
Courtney - widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain - also revealed strangers gave her money following her financial difficulties earlier this year.
She and her 17-year-old daughter Frances Bean are currently staying at a New York hotel while they waits for work to be completed on a nearby apartment, and she admits they've been treated like royalty.
She told Britain's Style magazine: They are the best staff in the world. When my bank account got frozen, we had $14.32 a week, so we lived off the kindness of strangers. The guy at the travel agency put his credit card down for the hotel. How insanely nice is that? And we are on the sixth floor. Not love nor money will buy you this floor."
