New Johnny Depp interview: "I take roles because I fall in love with the character"

An article from Contact Music called “Depp’s Character Ambition” describes Johnny as more interested in being a character actor than a leading man. “The PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN actor claims he became a star by accident and has always taken on roles because the characters interested him,” the article reports. “I never wanted to be a movie star,” Johnny declares. “I take roles because I fall in love with the character. It was never my goal to become a big box-office star.” Nor is he chasing a big paycheck: “It’s been tempting to accept a big paycheck, but I never saw the point of doing something that has been done thousands of times.” Thanks to Boo-Radley for posting the article on the News forum.
