Johnny Depp stopped by the "Late Show with David Letterman" on Thursday and offered a movie stunt story you don't hear very often—his face was almost smashed in by a horse. (Thousands of women shuddered at the mere thought.)

Depp, who was filming on the set of his upcoming fim 'The Lone Ranger,' said the near-death experience could have left him "horrifically mangled."

On a side note, if you don't already know, Depp is actually a pretty talented musician. He's performed with The Black Keys on their song "Gold on the Ceiling," which he did at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, and has his own band, the Kids. While on Letterman, he performed as the musical guest to rock out with friend Bill Carter on his song "Anything Made of Paper" about the West Memphis Three.
