Quote Of The Day

| Filed under: Johnny Depp


“I don’t leave the house anymore. If it isn’t necessary I don’t go anywhere. I stay at home. I’m adamant when it comes to that. I will never get used to it. If you do, you must be insane. I’m thankful for everything, but there’s a limit to what a person can endure. I don’t know how Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can bear that kind of life, because personally it’s an issue for me. Because I never leave the house I live outside society,” he said. “But I’m a witness of my children’s lives. I see how they’re doing at school and how they treat their friends. My kids are a lot smarter than me. When I watch them I learn a lot. I don’t think there’s anything they could learn from me.”

- The very much alive, Johnny Depp

    Well, why go out when you are rich enough to bring everything to you??? Still sounds strange to me, but I love him anyway ;)

    Blatantly taking a stab at Angelina. This is all timed perfectly for the start of their filming. Sending a clear message that he is not interested — don't even try homewrecker.

    he's a little strange, but I can't say that I'd feel any different if I had the odd life of a celebrity.

  4. Laury says – reply to this


    A celebrity who stays away from all the Hollywood craziness. Love it. And he seems to be a much better parent to his children than Brad and Angelina could ever be. Vanessa Paradis is a very lucky girl.

    How fortunate is he to STILL have people interested in him whether he`s living in a cave or not? *sigh* So dreamy.

  6. 6

    Is there no end to his perfectness?

  7. 7

    Oh Johnny. You have that kind of attention because you are amazingly talented. Brad and Angelina have that attention becasue they are homewrecking sluts. People just watch to see when they will end…which I'm sure will be sooner than later. Since they are both cheaters ( Angelina being a repeat offender….how shocking) its only a matter of time before one fall into their old habits of spreading their legs and lieing about it… But Johnny you need not be worried about that.. You ditched that loser Kater moss who has no bottom… you common law wife is stunning and your tallent exceeds no boundaries… YOU ARE AMAZING. Plus kidz can always learn something amazing from their parents.. you..especially you are no exception. I tip my hat to you Mr. Depp.

  8. 8

    sounds to me like he's handling the fame with a lot of common sense…plus he's actually RAISING his kids and really involved in their lives. as opposed to brangelina who feel quantity is better than quality time and haul their poor children all over the globe and uproot them several times each year to drag them to the city in which they are filming. i bet thier kids have NO friends outside of their siblings.

  9. 9

    Re: bash2 – i think you are 100% correct bash about him using this as an opportunity to warn Angelina and her husband stealing snatch to not even think about trying to seduce him.

    he's too good for her skanky ass anyways.

  10. 10

    he's so sexy and wise.

  11. 11

    i got 20 bbms yesterday saying he was dead. i nearly cried. i love JD

  12. 12

    He doesn't seem the type to enjoy the red carpet life. Remember he kind of fell into acting because his friend (Nic Cage) suggested he had the looks and charisma for it. He didn't chase fame.

    I'm sure he's got everything he needs at home including large acreage to play with the kids in.

    Unfortunately, I don't go out because I can't afford it.

  13. 13

    I think he sounds like a smart man. He knows what's important, and he's keeping them close. You can say he's strange, but the Jolie clan is not impressive to me.

  14. 14

    Don't stay home too long Johnny. Unless your home will serve as the new Collinwood. We are stuck enduring one bad vampire movie after the other. especially Twilight. Come on now!

    Very well put. I LOVE JOHNNY!!!!

  17. 17

    Re: bash2 – In my opinion J. Depp was not "taking a stab at Angelina" on the contrary ! He expressed his admiration for Brad AND Angie coping with all the mud that has been thrown at their couple by the media ! J. Depp doesn't dare to leave his house, because he fears the eye of the media and their 'toxic" influence on his children and family. I think smart mister Depp was actually taking a stab at the media! Moreover, I really don't think Angelina has J. Depp on her mind currently! I wish Angie and Brad lots of succes in coping with all their troubles. If the rumours about the breakup are true, I wish them both the best in this difficult moment of their lives !

  18. 18

    Fame is a prison…

  19. 19

    Wow..I love him. His kids actually mean more to him than fame..who would of thunk it?? Maybe some other actors/actresses/entertainers can learn from him!

  20. 20

    Good for him. I wish Britney Spears would do that. I'm tired of seeing her ugly face.

  21. 21

    Sounds like a quote from Michael Jackson yet he was called Wacko. You're investigating the wrong "death". Better check those clues. They're EVERYWHERE.

  22. 22

    He's so right in that this day and age with the media hounds as they are, you can never be truly private unless you cut yourself off from the world. I love him so though and will never change. I dont think it was a stab at Angie and Brad either….just stating the truth since their life is madness and a half the way they are constantly followed.

  23. 23

    Ugh, one of those weird 70's throwbacks to the whole "Oh, Children know so much more than adults" bullshit. Hey Depp, if your kids are so smart, fine, let them start earning a living, and then you can quit acting and start going outside again…..douchebag.

  24. 24

    Re: Gambitgirl – You have absolutely NO IDEA what their children think, go through or who is with them. Trying to state as such is just wrong. I'm sure they love their kids as much as any parent and at least I see one, both or either of them with their children all the time. Quit bitching about a life you have no role in, no say in, and can never understand.

  25. 25

    he's smart, simple, sweet i just love him =)

  26. 26

    I love Johnny, one of the best actors around, Donny Darko, Ed Wood, Edward Scissor Hands, Finding Neverland, Blow, Sweeney Todd, Chocolat, Dead Man, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Arizona Dream, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Platoon, A Nightmare on Elm Street and now The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. He is truly amazing.

  27. 27

    Smart smart smart man this Johnny Depp.

  28. 28

    This guy is cool.

  29. 29

    ha. thanks for answering me. good to know depp is still alive.

  30. bash2 says – reply to this


    Re: FabulousMind – I think Angelina has every new relationship prospect on her mind. Depp might be the only way for her to top Pitt. So I respectfully disagree with you. I think this is a clear warning and proclaiment to the media that he is not going to be involved with her in any way shape or form - bc you know those rumors will start flying once they are filming. Most likely coming from Jolie herself (her PR people)

  31. 31

    He is famous because he's so talented. He doesn't need to go out fame and attention whoring and searching for the next train wreck.
    And as much charilty work as Brad and Angelina do (God bless them!) Johnny does as much-probably more. You just don't hear about it.
    Plus he's smokin HOT! Love him!!

  32. 32

    Re: Vampire Barnabas – Amen to THAT!

  33. 33

    Utterly rich, massively talented, and gorgeous looking celebrities are truly the people who have to deal with the worst aspects of life……….

    Please Johnny..I am not saying that your stardom doesnt come with severe disadvantages to your private life. But why not just stop making the blockbusters and go underground.

    Why choose to have a few photogs ruin your mood? go out..have them take their pics..hire a great chauffeur and enjoy life best as you can all the most exclusive and highly guarded resorts as you can.

    get some earplugs and go out for a coffee in a nice cafe with 10 guards surrounding you..why not..you can afford them..

    I know that your love for acting should not have brought you your seclusion…but hee…shit happens

    You are alive and happy (i guess), your family is too…and you can enjoy whatever life has to offer….but just not all of the time. I am a homebody too..nothing wrong with that. But my appt is probably the size of one of your bathrooms…but hey..who cares about that…

    You dont desere this..

    Just like the rest of us..only just a little different…

    Sigh…the life of a celebrity…just too darn tough..

  34. 34

    The only time Hermit=Not crazy :)

  35. 35

    Johnny is one STYLISH actor.

  36. 36

    Hes amazing. i admire that.good for him.

  37. 37

    Re: Gambitgirl – Too right he is!

  38. 38

    what a nutcase. all those deep and wacky roles he has done is really starting to affect his psyche.

  39. 39

    Wow he really sounds like a tool.

  40. 40

    if i lived on a humongous villa / estate in france with a vineyard i wouldnt go out either… and can you imagine being gawked pawed screamed at by masses of people and cameras everywhere you went… no thanks

  41. 41

    Re: bash2 – Well Bash2, I partly agree with you, in the sense that maybe Angie's PR-team has J. Depp on its mind, but I really don't think Angie, who's family has (maybe) fallen apart, is thinking about her next partner so little time after a breakup. Even great actors can't fake love and hapiness all the way, don't you think? On a human level, this (aleged) breakup must be very hard for Brad and Angie. I just don't understaind people who totally dismiss that fact and write horrible comments about Brangelina and other stars, like they're not human beings with feelings. (and I'm not saying you do)

  42. 42

    Johnny Depp is sexy beyond belief.

  43. 43

    Re: MyOpinionOnly – whatever opinion…you get to have an opinion, i get to have one too. and hey, you don't know either WTF is going on in their lives EITHER. so i can say whatever the hell i want…and so can you.


  44. 44

    thats why i love this man soooooooooooooooooomuch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  45. 45

    Now that's a real parent right there.

  46. @v@ says – reply to this


    He needs to fight that hermit urge just a little. It's important to get out a little with the woman and kids and have a bit of sunshine and balance. The kids need to see their parents relate to the outside world and people because that's how they learn to, apart from the head tripping teacher/school yard thing. It's too easy to become hermitted, and especially with that kind of cash. Howard Hughes at the end was a sad person. Resist the urge occasionally.

  47. 47

    People think fame is great but it isn`t, it`s hell. The only good thing about it is the money. I mean when you are walking down the street and a bum hits you up for money, how does that feel? Well imagine that happening 2000 times a day. It`s the same thing when you ask a star for his autograph or a photo. It`s fun at first, but after the billionth time it`s hell. Imagine people asking you for something every two seconds. You can`t go out to eat, see a movie, go to your corner coffee shop, and then you got the papparazzi tailing everything you do like your a little kid being constantly watched. It`s hell, it truly is. You gotta be completely insane to want to be famous today, and I think a lot of people fall into it because they get that idea in their heads when they are kids that being famous is cool when it is not in the least. Your life is over when that happens. It`s not yours anymore, it`s the publics.

  48. 48

    I am in love with him. Deeply in love!!!

  59. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: Naomid – Gwen Stefanie and Gavin Rossdale are very good examples. They just go out and interact. Their kids aren't cloistered. Depp could walk around without being bothered much in several countries. I think he lives in one.

  60. 60

    depp is so hot :] i always thought he was more so than orlando in pirates and omg i can't wait for alice in wonderland!

  61. 61

    Johnny Depp= Perfection
    He's like the biggest actor out there but he lives out of the country (I think he lives in France, right??) and avoids the media and limelight. He spends his free time at home and puts his kids first. What does the man not do. And that man is smart, experince wise, he knows alot about life and theres nothing more important than that. Theres alot his children could learn from him- acting skills being one- but I'm sure the last thing he wants is for his children to be in this industry. All I know is that I could probally learn more about acting from Johnny Depp in one day then I could from anyone else in a year!! He's able to be crazy and do totally weird things infront of the camera as his characters and be comfortable with it and thats something I would love to learn how to do.

  62. 62

    I HIGHLY doubt he said this, or even something similar to it. Though I am pretty sure that Johnny Depp knows a lot about what's going on in Hollywood, he comes across as the type who would not talk about it or even think much of it, especially when it comes to the private lives of other well-known people.
