It appears actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are set to boycott Australia, after the row that saw them accused of illegally bringing two dogs into the country.
Heard, who is busy promoting her upcoming film Magic Mike XXL, says she is no more a fan of the land Down Under.
"I have a feeling we're going to avoid the land Down Under from now on, just as much as we can, thanks to certain politicians there," the actor, 29, replied when asked about her cute little pooches, Pistol and Boo, whom she shares with Depp.
"I don't know, I guess everyone tries to go for their 15 minutes, including some government officials," she added.

Barnaby Joyce, Australia's agriculture minister, was the target of the actor's snipe.
The politician made headlines when he threatened to have the dogs euthanised because Depp had his pets flown in on a private plane in May without documentation.
Australia has very strict biosecurity laws for pets coming into the country, which includes medical testing, proof of vaccinations, blood work, and more to ensure that the animals are healthy.
