Johnny Depp claims music is a 'lifesaver'

Apr 1 2014, 5:24am CDT | by

<p>Johnny Depp says making music is a "lifesaver".

The Hollywood star's "first love" was rock 'n' roll after getting a guitar aged just 12 and after years devoted to his film career, the 'Rum Diary' actor claims he's never felt better now he's back in the studio making music with the likes of Ryan Adams and Marcus Mumford.

In a special chat for Interview magazine conducted by Iggy Pop, Johnny - who opened for the godfather of Punk with his old band the Kids as a teenager - revealed how music has changed his life.

He explained: "I've been playing a lot of music lately. It's a real lifesaver, being able to focus on my first love. It's freedom. And immediate - yeah, f**k, we captured it. I suppose that's it, capturing something.

"I've been writing and recording with Ryan Adams a lot lately. Ryan is incredibly prolific and he's just a pure soul, he's just this being. He's got a great handle on it. And is taking good care of himself. But what a talent, man. I'm amazed by the f**ker.

"And then, here and there I'm doing some stuff with Alice [Cooper], which is really fun. Also with Marcus Mumford, who's amazing."

The 50-year-old actor - who is engaged to actress Amber Heard - and Iggy next met on the set of 'Cry-Baby' in 1990 and have been firm friends and collaborators ever since, but the 'Edward Scissorhands' star reminded him that their first meeting didn't go quite so well.

He told his musical idol: "After the gig you were walking around the club, and I was standing at the bar, all of 17 years old, guzzling as much spirits as I could to get up the nerve to talk to you. And I remember making the horrific decision in my teenage drunken state to go, 'Well, I'll just get his attention.'

"I started going, 'I-I-Iggy Pop, Piggy Slop', you know? You walked towards me and put your face about a quarter of an inch from mine and just went, 'You little turd.' And not only was it exactly the reaction that I deserved, but it was the one I wanted. I had a moment with you."

Jul 16 2014 10:42pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

The inside story of the summer movies that lost a fortune, from Catwoman to The Lone RangerWe are near the height of the summer movie season right now, and overall it's been a pretty good year for Hollywood. Transformers: Age of Extinction and X-Men: Days of Future Past have made an absolute fortune, but it's always more fun to talk about the bombs. Studios are quite willing to spend upwards of $300 million on a movie if it means they might make $1 billion — so when somethi ...

'Batman V Superman' Versus 'Captain America 3' Isn't The Only Crazy Box Office Showdown

Jun 10 2014 2:32pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Back in 1984, when a hit film played for six months, the world didn’t live or die by opening weekend. Today such a head-to-head match-up would be suicidal. Yet we see on the horizon, in 2016 especially, a handful of seemingly insane demographic box office duels, where films either targeting identical demographics or big enough that they need to suck up most of the oxygen in the room are opening against each other.As someone that didn’t follow the release date until th ...

Benedict Cumberbatch attended the French Open on Sunday and Monday. He loves tennis. And fast cars. And dogs. And hats. He really, really needs a job you guys. This is a man who worked back-to-back on like seven different projects over the course of a year and a half. He’s been out of work for several months and while I enjoy having new photos of him on the reg, I’m starting to get concerned. Surely he should be due in Bosto ...
