Depp: 'I'd Be Happy With No Money'

Hollywood superstar JOHNNY DEPP claims he would be perfectly content to earn a small salary. The PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN actor, who has two children with French beauty VANESSA PARADIS, would only require enough money to pay for the roof over his head. He says, "I could be happy with a few hundred dollars. As long as I could pay the rent and take care of my family I would be fine."

Unselfish?? Look at the movies he has chosen? You mean look at the movies he IS choosing! I don't see him asking for less than 17Million a movie, do you? You can only use so much money! Why isn't he being shown like Angelina Jolie? 30% of her income goes strickly to charitable organizations. Johnny doesn't have to flaunt how much money he would give, just that he gets out there and supports worthwhile charities. Yes, he's lived BOTH ways! That's why it would have even more of an impact for him to promote worthwhile charites. Angolina grew up privileged with a celebrity father and she is promoting the poverty in Africa...Johnny knows what it is like to have poverty in America. Doesn't the saying go "to those whom much is given, much is expected"!

errrr......no not all the girls on here have 21 Jump Street crushes on Johnny Depp. I happen to be a 49 year old women who thinks that he happens to be a very good actor. All the coments above have some truth in them; why does he ask so much for a movie?; why doesnt he give some to charties?....but who is to say that he doesnt....just because it isnt published in the newspaper or no the tv like some actors do, doesnt mean to say that he isnt giving his money to some chartity or other....he might like to keep it private like he does his family...I would rather get more blessings when I do something quietly, than getting the reward of having it show to everyone on the news, and maybe Johnny is like that....who real knows...no one....but of course Johnny and his family.

That is why I like him so much because he is not greedy. As long he have enough money for what he needs for his family,and rent than he is fine and that is he's number 1.To me he should win a Oscar POTC2.

I can't believe you guys would say that. Johnny has always said he doesn't care about the money - and proven it by the film roles he chooses. He is fantastically unselfish, and he means it when he says it!

Box-office receipts "are kind of none of my business," Johnny Depp says.Then how could he base his going rate of 17-million dollars if he didn't concern himself with the end dollar amount? Did he just guess?The only people defending him are women who have some dreamy childish, "21-Jump Street" crush him. Yea he's perfect girls. Keep dreaming....It's all about the money!!!

I laugh at almost everything that comes out of his mouth! What he says is NOT what he does...$17,000 bottle of wine because you were celebrating, ya right, you'd live with no money! Well you might, but your fraile little frog wife wouldn't! You can bet she had baby no.1 timed perfectly to snag you!! She likes attention..look at who she's been linked with! No she would never live in that airstream you just bought! I like the other people's suggestions...you can always help many many people with money like yours. I bet there is tons of families in Kentucky that could use help! Give it all away then! Unbelievable smoke screen Johnny...we are NOT stupid people. We can see right through all of the pretenses. I think you live life like a role you are playing...fake.

The height of conceit. One of the luckiest ppl on the face of this earth. Truly a comment to be made when it can never be proven otherwise. I wonder if it has ever occurred to him that it was $$ that got the wife and then the kids in the first place. Cynical, but true. It must be nice to be JD.
