Johnny Depp attended the Hollywood Film Awards Friday while drunk and gave a slurred, rambling speech before needing to be cut off, Daily Times reported.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" actor was present at the awards show held in Los Angeles and was set to present an award to producer Shep Gordon, who was the subject of Mike Myers' documentary "Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon."

"That's the weirdest kind of microphone I have ever seen in my life, right?" Depp said to start his address as he struggled with the stand.

Depp, who was barely able to stand, stammered and struggled through his speech before being cut off by CBS after a minute of speech filled with several swear words, according to The Guardian.

Depp, who was wearing dark glasses, said, "Watch, I'm going to read this thing."

"He's someone I consider a great friend," Depp said of Gordon. "Somebody... uh, yeah, uh... incredibly, uh... loyal, loyal friend. Um. And so... you have to watch the film. Yeah, there you go."

Depp also swore several times, which needed to be blanked out, before saying, "I mean, it's one of those nights," and eventually getting cut off by a clips package.

Myers said that Depp's expletive-laden speech was "very rock 'n roll, which is very appropriate for Shep Gordon."

Depp's inebriation was apparently due to a jam session with Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford and several others the night before at the Montalban Theatre in support of "Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

However, Depp's demeanor garnered criticism online by fans.

One twitter user wrote, "Oh my!! Johnny Depp snookered at the Hollywood Film Awards! Why did they let him go on stage so drunk and make a fool of himself?!?" while another said, "Anyone watching the Hollywood Film Awards? Johnny Depp is on drugs or drunk as hell haha. Either way I still like him." One user added, "Johnny Depp drunk > Everyone else in the entire world."
