Depp Vows Never To Raise Child In U.s.

Actor JOHNNY DEPP has vowed never to raise his child in the U.S. - branding the country a truly "frightening" place. The Pirates Of The Caribbean star, 44, currently lives with his wife, actress/model Vanessa Paradis, and two children - Lily-Rose, 8, Jack, 5 - in rural northern France. And despite the fact he grew up in the U.S, he is vehement about never returning to his home country with his children. He tells the New York Post, "I'm not particularly optimistic about society. We're in an age where everything has gone too far. It's an ugly world. "I'm truly frightened of America in terms of raising my daughter here. I don't believe that is an option at all."

I do agree with Mr. Depp except for, not just the US, but the whole world is a scary place. The fact is we live here on this planet an must do what we can as parents to "insulate" our kids, Not "isolate" them! They will be living in the mess that the prior generations have created. We have been a part of it. I believe that societies in all countries do not have a moral compass anymore to guide humankind in what is right and wrong(I've also travelled the world Mr. Depp)...it is just not the US. I think it is very sad that you have not lived in our country long enough lately, and haven't been in any other "real life" town long enough, other than LA, to know that we are still a faith believing country and we have more towns, other than LA, that still have a fraction of a compass, which is hopeful. It's not just scary here. If you don't like it Mr. Depp, that's your right, but don't dump on JUST the US because you don't like it here. I have high regards for your abilities, but I feel you are one lost up puppy.

Trust Contactmusic to recycle ancient history as if it is "news". Johnny has TWO children with his PARTNER (not wife) Vanessa Paradis, and they raise their children in the United States AND in France. Check the facts, folks, and always be aware that Contactmusic creates "news" when there isn't really anything NEW to report!

Why do you have this as news ?It's not, your pathetic attempt to grab the headlines is about years to late.

Ahem! Mr. Depp said this many years ago when his daughter was an infant and his son was not yet even a twinkle in his eye. You are YEARS late to be jumping on this bandwagon. Also, while much of his time is spent on location while he's filming, his steady home for the last three years has been in his home in West Hollywood, family included. He even said this in an interview, this last spring/summer.I suggest that you check your facts before you go around spreading untrue rumors. You cannot afford not to be accurate, if in fact your goal is that people will take what you broadcast as being the least bit credible.

This is going around again, and it's October. Also, there's one more inaccuracy. It's rural southern France. Check the map.

I find it interesting that there are two major errors in this (that I see) especially if it is supposed to be a recent quote.1) It menetions only one child - Mr. Depp has two2) The article states the Mr. Depp "currently lives with his wife, actress/model Vanessa Paradis" ~~ unless I missed something major, he has not married Ms. Paradis, (and actually feels that a piece of paper is not needed to validate his relationship w/ her)Now, in a positive light, that is an awsome picture of Mr. Depp.
