Depp: 'Art Gone From Hollywood Cinema'

JOHNNY DEPP has accused Hollywood cinema of lacking any art, praising European filmmakers for their superior creativity. The Pirates of the Caribbean star, who has acted in over 35 Hollywood movies, as well as directing, producing and screenwriting various films, has lost respect for the American movie business. He says, "I'm not sure that art in cinema is possible any more, in Hollywood anyway, but in Europe there's a real regard for the filmmaker and the writer. And the product too, the end result. They respect authors, painters, filmmakers, film and creativity. They celebrate it. And the wine is pretty good."

I so agree with Johnny. There is no respect in Show business in this country. Most roles seem to be geared toward young actors and some of the older, extremely experienced performers are more or less hung out to dry. It's a cut throat business here. There is more respect overseas. Sad.
