But, Johnny Depp is perfectly happy if his movie choices don't please everyone. Johnny Depp told Details that he admires his late friend Marlon Brando for eventually deciding he “just didn't give a f*ck.” However, this way of thinking was not very easy for the actor.

“First, I reached a point where I cared so much and was so diligent in terms of approaching the work,” Depp said. “Then, you get to where you care so f—ing much that it gets goddamn beleaguering, you know?”

Johnny Depp's last role was earlier this year in the box office disaster, Transcendence. Transcendence was a disappointment at the box office, grossing only slightly more than its $100 million budget. The film received mainly negative reviews; it was criticized for its plot structure, characters and dialogue.


Johnny Depp has managed to “are enough to not give a f—, because not giving a f—, that's the total liberation. Being game to try anything.”

Depp revealed that “it's like being a dog at the track” when movie studios expect his movies to make as much money as 2003's Pirates of the Caribbean. 

“They expect you to live up to some race you happened to be in and won accidentally,” he said. “From that first second, you're nothing more than a commodity. They have expectations of another Pirates.

He revealed that although it is exciting when a film is a major hit, it is ugly to make that movie its only goal.

Johnny Depp has several major films coming soon including the Big Bad Wolf in fairy-tale adaptation Into The Woods, Mortedecai where Depp plays an adventurous art dealer and a notorious gangster Whitey Bulger in Black Mass.
