He might be one of the most talked about people on the planet - but Johnny Depp has revealed that he hates the trappings of fame and success.
He told the Mirror that he was once so unhappy with being a celebrity that he tried to get fired from 1980s hit show 21 Jump Street, by deliberately being difficult on set and trashing his trailer.
"I tried to be fired because I felt I was in a prison creatively. I was stuck in a box.
"I'm not 'blockbuster boy'. They created this image, this monster and they were selling it to the world. I'm an actor. I don't even watch [the films] most of the time. People will say a movie bombed at the box office but I couldn't care less."
Johnny split up with long term partner Vanessa Paradis in June. He is rumoured to be dating his 'Rum Diaries' co star Amber Heard.
