Lily's really together - she's a sharp kid and one of the smartest human beings I have ever met. Whatever she is doing, if she needs any advice, I'm there for her.

Johnny Depp Quotes 2062582

I'm doing a film called 'Black Mass' where I play James Bulger. The reason to play him is obvious to me. He's a fascinating character. It's not like anything I've done before on that level. I'm very excited to slide into that skin for a little bit. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1996877

You could make an analogy to a security guard who, three weeks prior, was mowing lawns for a living. The second he puts a uniform on and that badge, he's a man. I imagine the majority of us have felt the wrath of the over-zealous security guard guy. Is there something lying dormant in the man, that's waiting to be pumped up with that kind of power? I don't know. Does it reveal him? I don't know. Does it change him? I don't know. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 2069451

It's good to experience Hollywood in short bursts, I guess. Little snippets. I don't think I can handle being here all the time, it's pretty nutty. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1015113

America is dumb. It's like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you - aggressive. My daughter is four; my boy is one. I'd like them to see America as a toy - a broken toy. Investigate it a little, check it out, get this feeling, and then get out. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1739668

If I ever thought of directing again, I mean - I don't know, even the idea of directing a film is a strange one for me, because I feel kind of anti mathematics in a way in that sense. Anti - I don't like when things make sense, I prefer if they don't, so if I made a film, it wouldn't make any sense and no one would see it. So maybe I'll just make little films at home with my phone, never to be released. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1565286

I still love the layers of cinema whether it's 35mm or 16mm or 8mm, super 8 which I love. I love the grain. If I had my druthers I'd film everything in kodachrome. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 2092359

They said, "You get $2 million to make the film, if you're not in it. If you are in it, you get $5 million to make the film." There was no way to make the thing for $2 million, so I made it for $5 million. And then, it turned out there was no way to make the thing for $5 million. That's when it got weird. — Johnny Depp

Knowing that a great bit of the technology is active and actually happening, and that the technology that we're talking about, in terms of uploading a human consciousness, is probably not all that far away, to be honest. Indeed, it will happen. It's pretty close. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 120555

There may be something in the fact that when I was a little kid I'd been told growing up that we had some degree of native American blood in us, I always found that a point of pride. So, when it came to cowboys and Indians I most certainly did not want to be John Wayne. I wanted to be one of the Indians. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 175771

With every part you act, there must be a little of yourself in it. If there isn't, it's not acting. It's lying. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 270070

Ironically, it was only maybe a year prior to Tim calling I had re-read Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, and what I took away from it was these very strange, little cryptic nuggets that he'd thrown in there. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 278931

I detest jokes - when somebody tells me one, I feel my IQ dropping; the brain cells start to disappear. But something is funny when the person delivering the line doesn't know it's funny or doesn't treat it as a joke. Maybe it comes from a place of truth, or it's a sort of rage against society. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 324771

It's been insane. From Whitey Bulger to the Mad Hatter, you can imagine the schizophrenia. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 352199

It really depends on what the screenplay is asking of you, and what your responsibility is to that character. You have the author's intent to deal with, you have the filmmaker's vision, and then you have your own wants, desires and needs for the character. It's collaborative. But I knew, right off the bat, that there was no way to go into some sort of pink-haired, clown-nosed character with Ronald McDonald shoes. — Johnny Depp

I just watched cartoons for three years, and that had a strong affect on me. — Johnny Depp

I've been told I smell good. I don't look like I smell good. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 601709

It's such a funny thing when you see your daughter transitioning from your baby, your little girl, to suddenly being a young woman. If you're not really looking for it, you can miss it, and Lily-Rose is on that road already, and there's nothing I can do to stop it. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 626045

When you disrespect Australian law, they will tell your firmly. Declare everything when you enter Australia. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 659876

I've weaned myself down to about, on a great day, on a really great day, three cigarettes. For a nicotine junkie the essential cigs are three: the first-of-the-day cigarette smoked after lunch, the after-dinner cigarette and then the one taken whenever you want - the luxury-wild-card smoke. It used to be quite a bit more. It used to be, I'd smoke the table. I'd smoke the patch. I'd smoke the gum. So I feel good about it. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 698460

Prior to 'Pirates of the Caribbean' - the first one in 2003 - I had been essentially known within the confines of Hollywood as box office poison, you know what I'm saying? You know, I basically had built a career on 20 years of failures. — Johnny Depp

There's a drive in me that won't allow me to do certain things that are easy. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 777357

I've always enjoyed hiding behind these characters. It's a strange thing, you're more comfortable as a character than you are in life. I could stand up in front of, it doesn't matter how many people, as a character. But if I had to do it as myself and give a speech, I would be liquid. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 797643

The thing is, even if you're playing sort of a heightened character and playing inside sort of a heightened reality, you can still apply your own truths to those characters. — Johnny Depp

My body is my journal, and my tattoos are my story. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 936930

Simplicity - that's what I want. It's been a rare commodity for me for a number of years, but I enjoy being able to hang out with my girl, read the newspaper, and sit back and start to read a book by someone I admire, like Lawrence Krauss or Christopher Hitchens. And that's it - simplicity, where the game of Hollywood doesn't exist. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 944630

I experimented with drugs and I experimented with everything that little boys do - vandalism, throwing eggs at cars, breaking and entering schools and destroying a room.

I got out. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 999229

I started pulling gags on Al [Pachino]. That was the moment I realized that he was absolutely out of his mind. I mean that he's certifiably insane. I wouldn't spend a night in a room where he's at. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1000423

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 of almost everything you'll be OK. It's fine to stay informed and look at things, but to judge things will bog you down. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1004504

I have this fear of clowns, so I think that if I surround myself with them, it will ward off all evil. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1013276

I started out printing silk screen t-shirts. I sold ink pens. I worked construction. I worked at a gas station. I pumped gas. I was a mechanic for a little bit. I went into sewers, down into sewer lines. I had a lot of somewhat unpleasant gigs for a time there. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1019549

Attention is a strange sort of being, anyway, the idea of attention if someone appreciates your work. It's always nice that someone appreciates your work. — Johnny Depp

That pipe, just so happens to lead to the room where I make the most delicious flavored chocolate covered fudge."
Then he will be made into strawberry flavoered chocolate covered fudge, they'll be selling him by the pound, all over the world!"
No, I wouldn't allow it. The taste would be terrible. Can you imagine Augustus flavored chocolate covered gloop? Ew. No one would buy it. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1100313

'Edward Scissorhands' was tough to let go of because I found real safety in allowing myself to be that open, that honest. To explore purity. It was a hard one to walk away from. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1117401

I did do a film that I refer to as 'The Unpronounceable' by a guy named Yvan Attal with Charlotte Gainsbourg. I had a bit part in there. That was quite fun, doing scenes in French. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1130555

It's kind of interesting to experience that kind of a ride after well, essentially so many years of enjoying a career based on failures and then suddenly something clicks. The weird thing is, I never changed a thing. The process is still the process as it ever was. The fact that people decided to go and see a movie that I was in was probably the most shocking thing that I've ever been through. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1155180

When you had the fangs in, you wanted to be a little bit careful that you didn't actually pierce the jugular, kind of like my experience shaving Alan Rickman, which by the way neither of us want to do again, especially Alan. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1165034

Throughout my lifetime I've left pieces of my heart here and there. And now, there's almost barely enough to stay alive. But I force a smile, knowing that my ambition far exceeded my talent. — Johnny Depp

other kids pack lunch — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1440733

I love people. And when you love people that much that you're disappointed in them every day, that love can turn to hate in a flash of a second. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1442647

If there's a message to pass to people, I'd say that it's normal to be different from others, it's good to differ from one another, and we'd better look at ourselves first before we start criticising someone who looks, acts, speaks different or has a different skin colour. I'd like to continue, even at a minimal level, what John Lennon had started. If I could do as much as a bit of what he did, if I could contribute to the elimination of hatred among us, that would be a great deal. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1524269

I still approach a scene as one would approach a solo. There's nothing set or pat. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1559030

I needed to wander ... whenever and wherever I wanted! I'd found myself at the end of my rope as far as school was concerned; there seemed no particular reason for me to stay. The teachers didn't want to teach, and I didn't want to learn - from them. I wanted my education to come from living life, getting out there in the world, seeing and doing and moving amongst the other vagabonds who had had the same sneaking suspicion that I did, that there would be no great need for high-end mathematics, nope ... I was not going to be doing other people's taxes and going home at 5:37 p.m. to pat my dog's head and sit down to my one meat and two vegetable table waiting for Jeopardy to pop on the glass tit, the Pat Sajak of my own private game show, in the bellybutton of the universe, Miramar, Florida. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1650297

Alice and I, we'd met before, but we were able to kind of sit and chat on the set of Dark Shadows, and talk about maybe writing some songs together. We started doing that, and then one thing led to another and it became this Vampire project - because he was telling stories about all those days, which were fascinating. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1705595

If there's any message, it is ultimately that it's okay to be different; that it's good to be different, that we should question ourselves before we pass judgment on someone who looks different, behaves different, talks different, is a different color. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1719452

Tomorrow it'll all be over, then I'll have to go back to selling pens again. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1761195

If it's called a selfie, why are there people in it? — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1800194

If someone is being bullied or feels like an outsider, and they relate to something that I've done, even if it's just igniting a spark, that's great. I had that feeling as a kid. I was messed with no end. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1867676

I had just had a daughter, who was three or three-and-half years old, and I had been watching nothing but cartoons. That's really it. There was no YouTube. You're in France and you're raising a kid, so you break out the Tex Avery. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1898597

Wes Craven was the guy who gave me my start, from my perspective, for almost no reason in particular. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1911800

When I can focus on something like guitar or painting, I do. I started painting people I admire, like Kerouac, Bob Dylan, Nelson Algren, Marlon Brando, Patti Smith, my girl, my kids. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 1995385

When I see someone who just follows their dream and succeeds, and just does basically what they want to do and doesn't have to answer to anyone, obviously not harming anyone, that's great. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 2020447

There are these mythic unicorn-y tales of method acting, but Marlon [Brando] wanted to have a good time. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 2025783

I started out as a guitarist in the early '80s. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 2041833

In terms of it being a first screenplay, literally, my hat is off to him [Wally Pfister]. I didn't see any virgin blather in screen direction, or anything like that. It was just a wonderfully executed piece, and a complicated one. The mathematics involved in putting this film together, between Jack and Wally, and the great support of Alcon, it was not a easy little operetta. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 2209934

France, and the whole of Europe have a great culture and an amazing history. Most important thing though is that people there know how to live! In America they've forgotten all about it. I'm afraid that the American culture is a disaster. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 2224673

Out on the street, you never know what you're getting, and suddenly two days later you're beating yourself in the head with a tennis racket, wearing a towel, quoting Poe. You don't want that for your kid. You really don't want that. — Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Quotes 2238513

Not being well-versed in that arena myself, it's a little bit frightening because I'm not very good in those situations with lots of people and lots of famous people and cameras and all of that. It's not my specialty. — Johnny Depp
