Depp "Not Too Far Away" From Calling It Quits

Johnny Depp, once Hollywood's highest-paid actor, said today (Monday) that he is not too far away from quitting acting altogether. Interviewed by the BBC in London where he is promoting the U.K. opening of The Lone Ranger on August 7, Depp said, When you add up the amount of dialogue you say per year and you realize you've said written words more than you've had a chance to say your own words, that becomes an insane option for a human being. That circumstance may be particularly egregious when it leads to Depp being ridiculed by comedians, as he was two years ago by Ricky Gervais for his performance in the critically blasted The Tourist, in which he starred with Angelina Jolie. That movie was one of several in recent years that have flopped at the box office. Others include The Rum Diary, Dark Shadows, and, yes, The Lone Ranger, for which Disney is expected to take a write-down of $100-150 million in the fourth quarter, unless overseas ticket sales amount to far more than expected. Nevertheless, he has also starred in two huge blockbusters during the same period, Alice in Wonderland and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. I wouldn't say I am dropping out any second but I would say it's not too far away, he said in today's interview. He made it clear that he would not do so before completing the upcoming Alice in Wonderland 2 and the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. No, I think we're all right in those categories, he said.
