Like most 50-year-olds, Johnny Depp has been considering retirement more and more. In an interview with the BBC regarding the U.K. release of his The Long Ranger, Depp expressed some of his plans to lead a quieter life.

“I wouldn’t say that I’m dropping out any second,” said Depp, as E! reported, “But I would say it’s probably not too far away.”


“At a certain point, you start thinking, and when you add up the amount of dialogue that you say per year, for example, and you realize that you’ve said written words more than you’ve actually had a chance to say your own words, you start thinking of that as a kind of insane option for a human being,” he explained, in what sounds like a sort of midlife crises existential self-reflection. At least he didn’t ask, “who am I really?”

He had already told the Rolling Stones that he thinks of retirement “Every day,” and that he would love to “just take it down to the bare minimum and concentrate on, I guess, living life. Really living life,” voicing the concerns of the over-worked men and women everywhere. The aspirations to get away from the noise of publicity and simply live life – this has to be a common sentiment for most actors who have put out as much work as Depp has.

So he can get right on that retirement, as soon as he films the big-screen adaption of Into the Woods, where he will play the big bad Wolf; after he puts on his Mad Hatter regalia for the Alice in Wonderland sequel; after he makes the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean saga, which has netted $3.7 billion. Then after all these movies, he might consider settling down a simple life of “really living.” Assuming Tim Burton doesn’t take him hostage.
