Depp: 'I Don't Want An Oscar'

JOHNNY DEPP never wants to win an Oscar - because he hates getting up in front of huge audiences. The 44-year-old actor was nominated for an Academy Award in 2003 for his role as Jack Sparrow in Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl, and again in 2004 for his part in Finding Neverland. But he has never actually won the coveted accolade - and he never wants to. He says, "I don't want to get up in front of all these people and thank them. It scares the s***t out of me! The nomination was enough for me. I felt very honoured. It's not really about the awards, though, it's about the work for me. I just love acting."
