Johnny Depp is a true lover of music and one who respects the craft so much that he would not dare to start a band because he does not feel that his music would convince fans to support him based on his musical skill. Thus it is a feeling of utter disgust that he feels when he hears about or sees actors begin music careers after they have established themselves as actors and try to use their celebrity status to attract fans to their music.
Recently while in Berlin he spoke out about the practice and his comments displayed his utter contempt for those actors who use their fame to create bands and made it clear that he is one person who will not be creating his own band in this lifetime. He enjoys playing music on the side with musical performers such as Oasis, Iggy Pop and Marilyn Manson and considers himself very fortunate but find the prospect of trying to capitalize on the fact that fans have seen him in many successful blockbuster movies as the reason they should support his musical interests as distasteful.
Fortunately, while he disagrees with the musical pursuits of some of his acting colleagues he has not let it affect his acting as his new movie "Mortdecai" is receiving good reviews. Moreover, it seems that the rumours about strife in his personal relationship may have been overblown as the Golden Globes Award winner was photographed on the "Mortdecai" red carpet for the London, UK premiere with his gorgeous girlfriend Amber Heard and both looked relaxed and had huge smiles on their faces.
Johnny Depp is an actor with strong convictions and his willingness to speak out and 'ruffle the feathers' of his colleagues is one of the many reasons why fans and filmmakers are so fond of this talented, 'reformed bad boy' actor.
