Depp: 'I Was A Drugs Dumb-A*s'

Hollywood superstar JOHNNY DEPP has no regrets about his wildman past, even though he knows he would have spent the first two decades of his adulthood more productively without drugs.

The PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN actor quit his "dumb-a*s" narcotic-fuelled lifestyle prior to the birth of his daughter LILY six years ago (99).

The 42-year-old says, "There came a point where I'd just had enough. I think it was the point in my life when I was about to become a father.

"Then my first child arrived and you have a slew of realisations. They attack you. I had that moment where I thought, 'Oh, now I get it. Now I understand what it's all about.'

"I realised I'd wasted a lot of years being a dumb-a*s. But at the same time it's what I went through and made me who I am."

Depp is living with French singer/actress VANESSA PARADIS. They have two children, LILY and JACK.

I am ashamed in you, Johnny. I have just read two columns about yourself and Kate Moss, and I am disappointed to hear that you still have feelings for her. I know how it feels to love someone with all your heart only to discover that, rather then spending their nights dreaming of you, they're dreaming of someone entirely different. They are dreaming of somene in the past. I will always remain your devoted fan, Johnny. I know I have no place in your private life and nor does anyone else in the world other then the ones you love. But I am disappointed.

OK.........Johnny, as i dont know you in person or anything, i want to say i'm really worried for you TRUELY.My insight is telling me that you cant trust, as hard as that sounds and who am i to judge BUT. We all fight against the odds, but i really think with Kate it's going to be a pick you up in that time of need and when the time comes when everything else in yourlife has gone to bit's, she will walk on, come across other people, and drop you as a bomb shell.I'm not saying this for fun of it, i'm saying it for how i percieve it.Your a good man and i can totally understand that you feel thats she's worth that but look with in you plzzzzzzzz, use those cherokee insight.1974 what a year to be born, i know what a 1974 child is like and they well put this blunt dont learn, but when you have a young life it's not fair that, that life have be affected.I feel that you would NEVER let that happen to your children in your life but i feel your going to get seriously hurt, somwhere along the way with kate.I believe i have reason for passing these's comments, and certain radio would know, but because of your handsomeness i got carried away and not seen the true calling that i think i hold for you till now, i feel that you need a guiding hand, plzzzzzzzzzz look into your cherokee insight, search for truth with in your foundness for kate, alot of years have been and people maybe not what they seem but your life before kate having her own problems, things was so positive and just of recent i'm quessing your good nature is geting knocked. DONT LET THAT HAPPEN PLZZZZZZ.I'm quessing if you read this you would spit fire at me but you see, I'M NOT FAR FROM THE TRUTH, I HOPE YOU HEAR ME COS I'M WISHING YOU WELL. ALL BEST JOHNNY I THINK YOUR GOOD PERSON. XXX
