Johnny Depp November 2011 Vanity Fair

Hunky Johnny Depp covers the November issue of Vanity Fair magazine, which hits newsstands in New York on Thursday, October 6, and nationally on Wednesday, October 12.

Here’s a few highlights from his interview with the mag:

On being Hollywood’s best paid actor: “Basically, if they’re going to pay me the stupid money right now, I’m going to take it,” he says in Vanity Fair’s November issue. “I have to. I mean, it’s not for me. Do you know what I mean? At this point, it’s for my kids. It’s ridiculous, yeah, yeah. But ultimately is it for me? No. No. It’s for the kids.”

On how much he hates photo shoots: “You just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped. The whole thing. It feels like a kind of weird—just weird, man…. Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like—you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid.”
