Johnny Depp is letting the world know that he couldn’t be bothered about the public opinion of him, because he just really, really doesn’t care.
During an interview with Details magazine, the Alice in Wonderland actor gave a profanity-laden speech about how he’s in a place in his life where he just doesn’t give a hoot.
“What is really satisfying is, like Marlon [Brando], getting to that place where he just didn’t give a f***,” Depp said of the late actor and his mentor. “Suddenly you care enough not to give a f***, because not giving a f***, that’s the total liberation. Being game to try anything.”
So, if you were thinking that Johnny Depp might be embarrassed and keeping a low profile after his very drunken award speech at the Hollywood Film Awards earlier this month, well, then we guess you’d be wrong.
Depp shocked the audience and made fans wonder if there was reason to be concerned, but Depp simply referred to it as “one of those nights.”
He is also aware of how the success of a film can be hard to live up to. Take Pirates of the Caribbean, for example, which was a massive box-office success — something that studio execs now expect from Depp every time he is in a film. So, how does Depp feel about the pressures of fame?
“It’s like being a dog at the track. They expect you to live up to some race you happened to be in and won accidentally,” he explained of his Pirates of the Caribbean success. “From that first second, you’re nothing more than a commodity. They have expectations of another Pirates. It’s great if something works. Boy, that’s killer. But god, to have that as your design… it’s ugly, I think.”
