Touching Audiences More Important To Depp Than Awards
JOHNNY DEPP insists his movie performances are driven by the thrill of satisfying cinema audiences, not the possibility of winning major awards.
The 41-year-old actor deems creating a lasting magical memory for a child a far more worthwhile achievement than being awarded an OSCAR or other prestigious prizes.
He says, "Sure, I find (the Oscar speculation) touching, honestly, but awards are not as important to me as when I meet a ten-year-old kid who says, 'I love CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW.'
"They were really affected by this character and something away with them - that kid will have the memory in his head for a long time. That's real magic for me."11/10/2004 21:16
