Actor Johnny Depp has said that he admires Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for their globe-trotting along with their large family.
The actor says that he rarely leaves the house and learns all he can about modern life through his two children.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star hates the attention he receives whenever he leaves the French property he shares with long-term partner Vanessa Paradis and their two children, Lily-Rose, 10, and Jack, seven, so he shuts himself away from the “insanity” of modern life, Contactmusic reported.
Depp, who also owns a private island in the Bahamas, said, “I don’t leave the house anymore. If it isn’t necessary, I don’t go anywhere.”
He adds, “I’m adamant when it comes to that. I will never get used to it. If you do, you must be insane. I’m thankful for everything, but there’s a limit to what a person can endure. I don’t know how Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can bear that kind of life, because personally, it’s an issue for me.”
The intensely private actor, who only feels truly relaxed when on his island, said his life is so insular, he learns everything from his children.
The 46-year-old actor said, “Because I never leave the house, I live outside society. But I’m a witness to my children’s lives. My kids are a lot smarter than me. When I watch them, I learn a lot. I don’t think there’s anything they could learn from me.”
