PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN star Johnny Depp was amazed to watch the birth of his first child, as it banished any anger or selfishness from his character. The actor claims his life changed dramatically when daughter LILY-ROSE was born in 1999, and allowed him to discover who he really was. He explains, "I was never horribly self-obsessed or wrapped up in my own weirdness, but when my daughter was born, suddenly there was clarity. "I wasn't angry anymore. It was the first purely self-less moment that I had ever experienced. And it was liberating. "In that moment, it's like you become something else. The real you is revealed."
