Johnny Depp Doesn’t Give a Fuck Anymore

In his Details interview, Johnny Depp explains why he’s been breaking hearts by starring in turds like every Pirates of the Caribbean movie ever, Transcendence and Lone Ranger. It’s because he doesn’t give a fuck anymore and that, according to Depp, is true liberation.

“What is really satisfying is, like Marlon, getting to that place where he just didn’t give a fuck,” Depp says, explaining the evolution of his emancipation. “First, I reached a point where I cared so much and was so diligent in terms of approaching the work. Then you get to where you care so fucking much that it gets goddamn beleaguering, you know? But then a great thing happens. Suddenly you care enough to not give a fuck, because not giving a fuck, that’s the total liberation. Being game to try anything.”

So, much like a new college co-ed, Johnny Depp is in the process of discovering himself and finding out what makes him happy. Pirates of the Caribbean was his lesbian phase. Lone Ranger was his bring a black boyfriend home to meet his old fashioned southern parents phase. Into the Woods where he plays the Big Bad Wolf is his date an unemployed dreadlocked white guy who’s too into Bob Marley phase. Black Mass where he plays Whitey Bulger could be the I’ve dated enough wrong guys that it’s time to meet a normal guy phase.

Granted, Depp does sound like he truly doesn’t give a shit anymore.

“For everybody, the clock’s ticking. The main thing is whether you sit there and stare at the clock in fear of your ultimate demise—which is pointless—or you just live.”

For all anyone knows, we could see him in the next Pee Wee Herman adventure.
