Depp Taught To Never Discuss Private Life By Brando
JOHNNY DEPP refuses to discuss his personal life with reporters - ever since late movie icon MARLON BRANDO admonished him for talking about his daughters in a TV interview. Depp was surprised to receive an angry phone call from Brando, who died in 2004, just moments after the interview aired. He says, "I had done some television interview, and they asked about my family life and kids. I talked about how I'm a proud father and how much I love my kids and how they're fun and what we do and how it's great. "I was thinking that if in 25, 35 years my kids watch old footage, I'd be proud for them to see their dad saying how much he loves them. "Well, the show aired, and I get a phone call: 'What the f**k are you doing?' I said, 'Marlon, what are you talking about?' He said, 'That's none of their business!' "I tried to say, 'Marlon, listen, man, I only wanted my kids to...' And it was like he gave me this sort of once-over. 'You don't do it, man. That's your world and it's nobody else's business. It's not anybody's entertainment.' And he was right."
