Opens Up About Fatherhood

The World Premiere of THE LONE RANGER in Disney California Adventure

It seems like Johnny Depp is just everywhere these days promoting his new film, “The Lone Ranger.” The Hollywood actor opens up to Charlie Rose show on how he broke the news to his children about breaking up with Vanessa Paradis and what turning 50 meant to him. Here are some highlights:

On his split with Vanessa: “When you have children, there is no room for lies, no room for anything but the truth. Anything other than that is a bad example, I believe. We were just very truthful with them and they were just incredibly understanding, incredibly accepting. I was extremely proud of them, the way they dealt with it.”

On playing The Lone Ranger sidekick: “I would rather be a Keith than a Mick.”

Aging gives him more freedom: “I suppose the only thing at 50 you can really start to look forward to is just total irresponsibility. As you get older you can just sit in a chair, wear anything you want, you know you can walk down; old people dress cool. You know they wear sweatpants. The elderly have it down.”

Having children made him grow up. “You know you start getting hit with some very interesting situation in life, you as a parent when they approach that teenage area, which is frightening because you still have memories of that age and they things you were doing at that age…. Please don’t do what I did.”
