Johnny Depp and his band, The Hollywood Vampires, stopped by 95.5 KLOS in LA yesterday. Before we get into what he talked about, or didn’t talk about, please enjoy this photo:

Does he remind you of Sloth from The Goonies? Did you ever think that it was possible to draw a comparison between Johnny Depp and Sloth from The Goonies?

Anyway, this was Johnny’s first interview since his marriage went nuclear, since Amber Heard filed for divorce, and accused him of spousal abuse. Yesterday I posted about Winona Ryder and how even though she actually has nothing to do with the situation between Johnny and Amber she was asked about Johnny and Amber. Johnny has everything to do with the situation and, not surprisingly, he was not asked about Amber. Likely because his rep, or the band’s reps, specifically instructed the radio station not to ask about Amber. Which is standard celebrity operating procedure, a procedure that works out great for him – as life almost always does these days – and not so great for everyone else who’s shouldering the responsibility of defending him or speaking to his character, a position Winona found herself in while promoting her own television project. He’s not f-cking promoting it for her. And yet for whatever reason, somehow he benefits from her press tour, never having to lift a finger or take a question he doesn’t like or address a serious accusation. Being Johnny Depp doesn’t suck.

Johnny gets to do interviews and tell listeners that acting is his “accidental” job, the one for money, and that rock’n’roll is his one true way:  

During the interview, Depp revealed that he stumbled into acting while trying to pursue music as a teenager.

"I've [been a musician] since I was little – since I was 12 I've played," he said. "I started playing clubs when I was like 13 in Miami."

Depp said he became an actor by "accident."

"I needed to pay rent," said Depp. "Somebody said, 'Why don't you go meet an agent. My agent is with Nick Cage,' so she sent me on an audition for something and I got it."

The actor said it wasn't until his band broke up that he considered acting full-time. "It seemed like a good way to pay the rent for a minute," he said.

Rent? Rent these days is a private island in the Caribbean. For a job he’s really good at but isn’t street enough for him. Click here to listen to the full interview.
