Los Angeles - Johnny Depp appeared to be drunk on stage at the 18th Annual Hollywood Film Festival on Friday night.

The 51-year-old Hollywood icon appeared at the event to present the documentary award for Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon, directed by Mike Myers.

However, it soon became apparent Johnny wasn't in the best shape for the role, expressing bemusement about the double microphone in front of him, saying: ''That's the weirdest microphone I ever saw in my life.''

Johnny subsequently tried to adjust the microphone, which drew laughter from the crowd, including music manager Shep Gordon, who was seen giggling.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor admitted: ''I'm not very good at this type of thing.

''Watch, I'm going to read this thing.''

Trying to regain his composure, Johnny added: ''For decades Shep Gordon has been one of the most beloved and respected talent managers in the music industry, he is also the current star and subject of the documentary Supermensch ... cos he is a mensch [Yiddish for a person of integrity].

''I've been very, very lucky to have him in my life. He is someone I consider a great friend, an incredibly loyal friend.

''So you have to watch the film!''
