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."

Kevin Smith Shaved His Beard

Oct 28 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: IDon'tLikeYouInThatWay.com

  Kevin Smith wrote a movie called Yoga Hosers (“…when an ancient evil rises from beneath Canada’s crust and threatens their big invitation to a Grade 12 party”). And what you just read after the movie’s title is part of the premise, but I’m confused because it doesn’t star Justin Bieber, it stars Johnny Depp instead. Smith shaved his beard for the movie, where I assume he’s playing a character who is on some kind of neighborhood watchl ...

Kim Kardashian: I Was OBSESSED With Johnny Depp!

Oct 24 2014 11:41am CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

We thought we knew everything there was to know about the life and times of Kim Kardashian. In the last few days, however, we've learned about her past, and dare we say - it's all making us like her a lot more: First we saw video of Kim when she was 13 and acting a fool at her eighth grade graduation. It seems the revelation that she was as corny and annoying as the rest of us in her middle school years has only helped her reputation. Next, we lea ...
