Check out what this handosme hunk has to share:
Johnny Depp on avoiding the paparazzi while filming with Jolie:
“[Always] having to hide, sometimes not even being able to talk to each other in public because someone will take a photograph and it will be misconstrued and turned into some other sh–.”
Johnny Depp on Disney executives not liking his interpretation of Captain Sparrow:
“They couldn’t stand him. They just couldn’t stand him. I think it was Michael Eisner, the head of Disney at the time, who was quoted as saying, ‘He’s ruining the movie.’
Johnny Depp on his many eccentric roles over his career:
“They’re all still there, which on some level can’t be the healthiest thing in the world…. I always picture it as this chest of drawers in your body–Ed Wood is in one, the Hatter is in another, Scissorhands is in another…. They’re still very close to the surface.”
Johnny Depp on the music career he almost had:
“Going into acting was an odd deviation from a particular road that I was on in my late teens, early 20s, because I had no desire, no interest, really, in it at all. I was a musician and I was a guitarist, and that’s what I wanted to do.”
Johnny Depp on the appeal of his character in The Tourist:
“I was always fascinated by people who are considered completely normal, because I find them the weirdest of all.”
Johnny Depp on working with Angelina:
“Meeting her and getting to know her was a real pleasant surprise. You don’t know what she might be like—if she has any sense of humor at all. I was so pleased to find that she is incredibly normal, and has a wonderfully kind of dark, perverse sense of humor…I’ve had the honor and the pleasure and gift of having known Elizabeth Taylor for a number of years. You know, you sit down with her, she slings hash, she sits there and cusses like a sailor, and she’s hilarious. Angie’s got the same kind of thing, you know, the same approach.”
