Depp Bans Kids From New Movie - For 20 Years

JOHNNY DEPP has banned his two children from watching his new movie THE LIBERTINE for 20 years, because it's too rude.

The actor plays debauched alcoholic 17th century author LORD ROCHESTER in the film, and insists it will be inappropriate for six-year-old LILY ROSE and three-year-old JACK for some time.

He says, "I want my kiddies to be given the opportunity to be children and innocent and innocent and free for as long as possible before the inevitable bad things in the world rear their ugly heads.

"I would say it's safe for them to see PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY but I'd want to wait 20 years before letting them see The Libertine."

It's understanderble that Johnny wants to protect his kids from the big bad world, don't we all? But sometimes it just creeps into your life and you don't realise its there or the damage it does. I think its fair to say that Mr Depps children will bought up with open minds and open hearts and know the difference of right and wrong. And they want prejudge until they see for themselves and experience everything the world has to give, good or bad. I'm sure that they will be well protected until they are ready for the big bad world. Have no fear and fear can't hurt you!

I think that it's very understandable actually, that he would not wont his flesh and blood to see this certain film.I certainly wouldn't wont my childrens eyes peering to an older film not that i have seen it yet, but we hear about things dont we.On realistic views 18 is the age for, well anything, so 26 going on 27 i dont think unless his daugther would wanting to view his film's that he could stop her, but as a parent i can understand why he would say 20 years later.Very reasonable to say those things as i'm a parent and i can totally reason with why he said them ;).

Good for you Johnny,the little critters sure change our outlook and lifestyles don't they.My godchildren have made one heck of a difference in my life too.I am shaking in my boots.I am terrified that the parental curse is going to smack both of us in the face.I guess all we can do is take a deep breath and hang on for the ride.

I don't blame him. I would to if I was him. Young children don't need to watch movies with bad langaues, sex. They need to watch like Charlie & Chocolate Factory of the Willy Wonka and Pirates of the Cabirreane.
