Johnny Depp - Johnny Depp Mulls Retirement In A Decade

Johnny Depp is considering retirement when he hits 60 in a decade - because he'd like to spend his twilight years living life.

The movie star, who turned 50 earlier this month (Jun13), admits he's sick of constantly being "on the run" from the paparazzi and he has grown tired of having to "sneak in through the kitchen or the underground labyrinth of the hotel," so he has an exit strategy.

He tells the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, "I can't say that I'd want to be doing this for another 10 years.

"I think while I've got the opportunity and the desire and the creative spark to do the things that I can do right now, I should do them, and then, at a certain point, just take it down to the bare minimum and concentrate on, I guess, living life. Really living life.

"At a certain point, when you get old enough or get a few brain cells back, you realise that, on some level, you lived a life of a fugitive."

But the Pirates of the Caribbean star insists he'd still need a plan for semi-retirement, adding, "I don't know if I can relax... My brain, on idle, is a bad thing. I just get weird. I mean, not weird... I get antsy.

"There's a great part of me that has deep concerns for, let's say, the world, as everyone does. If you're, in any way, sensitive to that stuff and you just keep taking in, taking in, taking in, you'll drive yourself f**king nuts. You start getting into things, like - people are fighting because each one says their god is better than the other. And zillions of f**king people die. Savagely. Horribly. Innocent people.

"You can't take that in as a machine and then spit it out as data that makes sense. You can't do it."
