Depp wants to be anonymous

Johnny DeppJohnny Depp told Esquire magazine that he wishes he could be anonymous, saying, “I’m sure it will be a possibility someday again. Maybe when I get old. They get tired of you.” Depp says he doesn’t understand the attention paid to celebrities and wants no part of it. “I don’t want to be a product,” he elaborates. “Of course you want the movies to do well. But I don’t want to know… who’s hot now and who’s not and who’s making this much dough and who’s boffing this woman or that one. I want to remain ignorant of all this. I want to be totally outside and far away from all of it.” Depp, who lives in France with Vanessa Paradis and their two children, can next be seen on the big screen in the musical Sweeney Todd.

    Johnny(B!)Depp It’s all been said and done before. I am glad for your success and I know how much you like to remain unknown. Your spirit thrives for your various talented expressions. If you do get the chance to read these notes on this website please know this, 1990 is the year I still remember! I am glad that you found your L.T. and there will always be a bones poem in my heart!

    Now’s the time to take our call!

    Johnny Depp is such a great actor and his personality as a celebrity is really great!! Can’t wait to see Sweeney Todd.. saw it on Broadway and I was so glad to hear that they chose HIM to play the barber!!! It’s going to be AWESOME!!

    Now Depp wants to be Anonymous. We already have one or two Anonymous(s) on this site. Why can’t Johnny be Hot2 or GinaA or something like that.

  6. Gina • December 15, 2007 @ 2:15 AM

    THATS IT!! Any new Ginas will have to go by Gina_fan…gina_fan1, gina_fan2 etc etc. haha

    Gina-blue, what are you so mad at? I’m one of those ‘anonymous’ who he wants to steal the name from. No way Johnny Boy – you want it, you get to pay me for it!

    And just what decade does he think he’s going to be blessed with his renewed anonymity? Better yet – what continent is he planning on living on to become an unknown again?

    Johnny Depp is my fave actor and I agree with everything that was said by Cynthia… He is awesome.

    You women should learn from Vanessa Paradis. When they first met, Vanessa asked Johnny out not the other way around. And now she’s got Johnny Depp as a husband. Good for her. I hate how all women just wait around for guys to ask them out.

    To Cynthia,

    I’m pretty sure that Johnny did the Pirates movies for the money. They are not very deep movies at all. Ka-ching!

  11. Arnold • December 16, 2007 @ 1:38 AM

    Maybe the movies were not very deep but his performance was exceptional. His talent is far and above most of his peers.

  12. Nancy • December 16, 2007 @ 5:30 AM

    what you talkin’ bout Arnold? Who’s performance was exceptional? Psssst…he wants to be anonymous…shhhhh!

    Depp hands down is the best actor in hollowood.
    Put it this way you could ask him to play any role and he would not only put his heart into it he would murder it. The only real bankable star in hollowood.

  14. Nancy • December 16, 2007 @ 10:01 PM

    so….he would put his anonymous heart into it and then murder it? So he would then be killing himself, right?? Oh, and where might this ‘hollowood’ be?? LOL.

    What pirate acts like that, “slightly gay”?
