Johnny Depp Confesses He's Close To Retirement!

This is madness!

He hasn't even won his Oscar yet — a feat, we might add, that has been deserved for years now!

But despite his incomplete trophy shelf, Johnny Depp is warning us all of his impending retirement.

After hinting on the subject in his recent Rolling Stone interview, Johnny further confirmed his thoughts on leading a life without scripts and premieres in a Monday chat with BBC.

Speaking words of (unbearably sad) wisdom, he mused:

"I wouldn't say that I'm dropping out any second, but I would say it's probably not too far away. At a certain point, you start thinking, and when you add up the amount of dialogue that you say per year, for example, and you realize that you've said written words more than you've actually had a chance to say your own words, you start thinking of that as a kind of insane option for a human being."

Nooo!! He sounds super serious!!

Quitting a life of maximum fame for more worthwhile activities!?!

Sigh… but, but… let's just look on the bright side here.

Maybe he'll pour all of his time into writing a book and going on a tour that makes it 10x easier to meet him! We'd be all for that! Ha!

Fortunately we still have a while before he jumps off the Hollywood grid, as he is still set to woo us in a number of upcoming films: Transcendence, Alice in Wonderland 2, and the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean!

And if he doesn't win a tiny lil' gold man during his career, he BETTER get one of those 'thanks for kicking ass throughout your entire life and creating characters that will last forever' lifetime achievement Oscars!

    I'd like to see him do more roles that don't include heavy make-up. Hopefully Transcendence will be better than The Tourist.

    He never wanted to be an actor and is a shy man. all those press tour may become very unbearable for a man like him. He always says that he enjoys the process of acting and creating a character but he hates all the other side of the fame and promotion. Maybe he needs to take roles in little projects not these big blockbuster with 6 months of shooting away from home and big promotional tours.
    About his quieter projects, remember he opened the last year his own books imprint for HaperCollins, so maybe that is what he want to do.
    I love the gif Perez!

    Is that clip from Private Resort? I remember seeing that movie when I was a little kid. Hopefully he'll stick around for a long time.

    Agreed! Johnny deserves an Oscar, he's done so much good movies hardwork and yet none…

    I think he would be happier playing music and painting.

    I don't see him quitting acting. He needs to do more serious roles that he doesn't hide behind makeup and characters. Lone Ranger wasn't so bad and most of the "blockbusters" this summer have done poorly and not the money the studios expected.
    .
    What the studio doesn't understand is that most people are spending their movie money to go to kid's movies, but wait for movies to go on DVD and On-Demand so they can watch at home so they don't spend money on baby sitters.

    Nah. He's in a position to cherry pick rare roles, even character supporting roles, while taking ample deserved time for himself and his loved ones. He never has to 'retire.' He can be Helen Mirren, and choose smartly to suit himself. He should never officially hang anything up. Whenever he does pop up, it will be a treat.

    I think he created this story to spin us away from him and Amber. I just wish he would take off the makeup and just be himself. He is to die for handsome. I know how he feels. I have always been stared at like I was 9 ft tall and 10 ft wide. I told my brother once that I wish my face would go thru a windshield so people wouldn't keep staring and saying how pretty I was. My brother came back with the best line ever. He said,, "If your face went thru a windshield people would stare at you because you were ugly so take what god gave you and run with it. I have always felt self conscious about my looks. I have always wanted to be a singer but am too self conscious to get up in front of people and sing, I wish Johnny would just be Johnny.

    Re: sunshine63

    It must be nice to get called beautiful all the time. I receive compliments too, but I get called creepy a lot more, because of my love of dark things, but I work with it. I play it off with my humor, so people enjoy my company when I'm around them. It's all in how in how you present yourself… Though sometimes when I don't feel like being bothered, I just stick with creepy. Much like the moon. It can be beautiful and it can be scary, but either way, it steals the show, which is why it needs its solitary space from everyone, but will show up again X)
    Johnny's gonna be okay. He just needs a boost and guidance from the right guide. I often say I would love to encourage him. I love guiding people who are in the dark about themselves, being a light to them in a shadowcasted world …much like the moon at night lol

    I agree I think this is a PR spin either to distract from Amber or to get people to see the LR. By saying you will retire soon, people may think well if he is going to retire, so better see his film, it could be his last.
    He mentioned retiring in the rolling stones article and in NM press junket, but it gave me the impression it is like 10 years, but now he is sounding, in the new interviews, quite soon. He has alot of new projects lined up, so it will be in a few years a least

    I look forward to his future films. Except Skifi movie. When you I do not like Skifi the films.
    I hope he does not retire, it would be a great loss. He's so talented.
    Go Johnny.

    I don't think he's bluffing, having all your mess out in public must not be fun and we all have our messes in life. I think even with Vanessa he just wanted to live in France fall off the radar and raise his kids and she wanted more out of him than that. It's sad but Amber just seems like more of the same, Vanessa just with a more willing and fertile uterus. This may be the test for Amber does she want him or ”THE JOHNNY DEPP”. I don't blame him, fame sort of seems toxic. Not to knock either one of them V or A, some people want different stuff out of life.

    I think Johnny should continue to act maybe with out the heavy make up or customs or he could do animated picture like when he did Rango. I love that movie it was so awesome he also look like he had fun making it and it involves no make up or customs .Come on Johnny we love Rango find some thing to do that excites you ..I could care less about his relationships Relationships could come and go especially if there is an age difference. Keep being productive helps with aging and you need that energy for your kids . Tramps are a dime a dozen.

    Johnny is incomparable. He is a truly artist. He can not stop working because he is an artist and he works with passion and he is so talented. I really hope he doesn't want to stop, because as The Fox in The Little Prince that he is "already happy since three o' clock", I'm already happy when they announce a new film or work with Johnny. Johnny is perfect.
