Johnny Depp doesn't care about critics
'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor Johnny Depp doesn't care about his film critics.
Johnny Depp doesn't care about film critics.
The 51-year-old actor no longer worries about proving his critics wrong and is now "game for anything" after coming to the realization that he was becoming too preoccupied with what others thought.
He shared: "First, I reached a point where I cared so much and was so diligent in terms of approaching the work. Then you get to where you care so f***ing much that it gets goddamn beleaguering, you know? But then a great thing happens.
"Suddenly you care enough to not give a fuck, because not giving a f***, that's the total liberation. Being game to try anything."
Johnny - who is engaged to the 'Never Back Down' actress Amber Heard, 28 - is currently gearing up to star in the fifth installment of the 'Pirates' franchise, 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales', but as much as he as "loves" acting, he admitted to being disinterested in the self-promotion that comes with the trade.
He told Details magazine: "The process I love. The other stuff ... I can deal with being a fugitive for a bit, but I don't know how much longer a human being really wants to be that. Actors essentially have to peddle their ass to sell the movie. All the by-products or occupational hazards of the thing."
