Johnny Depp: No Air Of Being “Famous”


The very versatile actor JOHNNY Depp thinks there is “something wrong” with famous people who are used to their fame.

Depp,who rose to fame on 1984 movie Nightmare on Elm Street, reveals his notion about being famous worldwide as a celebrated celebrity.

“I’m still sort of dealing with it. I don’t think it’s anything you ever get used to … for many years I could never sort of put my name in the same sort of category as the word ‘famous’ or anything like that,” he said.

For someone who has been famous half their lives,Johnny Depp is still not comfortable with his popularity and subconsciously longs for privacy.

“And I just found it very uncomfortable … if you get used to it, then something must be wrong … There’s got to be still a part of you that — somewhere in there that pines for anonymity.”

Moreover,Depp,who is known to be a devoted parent to Lily-Rose, 12, and nine-year-old Jack with long-term partner Vanessa Paradis,would want his kids appreciate him as their loving father rather than a “novelty” actor for a father.

“I don’t want my kids to experience me as a novelty. I want my kids to know me as dad, you know. And already, you know, if they have access to the internet or whatever, I mean they understand what the deal is. But I don’t want them to have to live through and experience that kind of attack,” she said.

“I don’t go out very much. I stay at home a lot. Or when you go out to eat, you know, you’ve got to – it becomes a strategic sort of plan.

“I do realize and understand very well on a profound level how lucky I am and what a privileged position it is and what it’s done ultimately for me, my family and my kids. But at the same time there are moments in a man’s life when you just kind of want to feel somewhat normal.”
