Johnny Depp - Johnny Depp Not A Fan Of His Films

Johnny Depp doesn't watch his own films.

The 47-year-old actor is uncomfortable watching himself on screen, but admits this pleases his frequent collaborator, director Tim Burton.

He said: "I do my best to avoid my films at all cost.

"Tim likes that I'm not one of those actors that runs up to the monitors between takes to see playback. I'd rather swallow a bag of ticks."

Asked what it would take to get him to watch himself, Johnny joked to Britain's OK! magazine: "Probably a few bottles of wine."

The 'Tourist' star - who has children Lily-Rose, 11, and Jack, eight, with long-term partner Vanessa Paradis - insists he is always quite hands-off with the filmmaking process as he trusts the directors and producers to craft his work into the way they want it to be.

He added: "I just know that when they say, 'You're done,' that my services are no longer required. Then basically it's in the director's and editor's hands.

"It's my job essentially just to give them options to play with. So they make it what they want."
