Johnny Depp Doesn’t Give a F**k About His Failing Career, is F**king Shy

Johnny Depp is slowly sliding down a slippery slope of bad career moves, too many costumes and weirdo makeup. The actor says he has come to a place where he really no longer gives much of a “f**k” about his career, even though he admits he was very cautious about how he played his cards at the very beginning:

“First, I reached a point where I cared so much and was so diligent in terms of approaching the work. Then you get to where you care so f***ing much that it gets goddamn beleaguering, you know? But then a great thing happens. Suddenly you care enough to not give a f***, because not giving a f***, that’s the total liberation. Being game to try anything.”

Johnny also says he is just really “f**king” shy and doesn’t enjoy much about being in the spotlight at all:

“I’m f***in’ shy, man. I’m living, in a sense, like a fugitive. I don’t like to be in social situations–it’s fine for me in a weird way, having to run and hide. Less and less, I have the opportunity to observe, because I’m the one being observed.”

On the crazy pressure to be successful, Johnny says he feels like a dog at a track:

“It’s like being a dog at the track. They expect you to live up to some race you happened to be in and won accidentally. From that first second, you’re nothing more than a commodity. They have expectations of another Pirates. It’s great if something works. Boy, that’s killer. But God, to have that as your design … it’s ugly, I think.”
