'Public Enemies' star Johnny Depp has revealed he hates watching his own movies, preferring to have a ''profound degree of ignorance''
Johnny Depp can't look at himself in the mirror.
The 'Public Enemies' star - widely considered to be one of Hollywood's hottest men - avoids examining his appearance and even hates seeing his movies.
He said: "If I can avoid the mirror when I brush my teeth in the morning I will. I find security and safety in the most profound degree of ignorance. If you can just stay ignorant about just about anything you will be OK. Just keep walking forward.
"It is OK to notice things, but to judge things will bog you down, so I don't like to watch myself in movies.
"I don't like to be aware of the product, I like the process. That is not my fault. I didn't do it. I was there but I didn't do it."
Johnny also claims the secret to maintaining his good looks is staying at home and abstaining from cigarettes and alcohol.
The 46-year-old star joked to BANG Showbiz: "I would say the way I look is down to clean living. Most definitely. If you can avoid wine I would do it. And liquor definitely. Most definitely don't smoke - anything. "Stay in your room and watch reality television. That is how I do it."
