JOHNNY Depp admits his kids don’t consider him to be cool.
The actor — who raises Lily-Rose, 12, and 10-year-old Jack with partner Vanessa Paradis – says his brood are now old enough to understand what he does for a living but they are not impressed.
“They are not bothered at all,” says Johnny, 47. “They get excited if Bob Downey (Robert Downey Jnr) comes to the house but they don’t get excited about me in any way whatsoever.”
Depp also revealed he has developed a dual personality to help him deal with life in the spotlight.
“It’s one of the dangerous pitfalls of doing this for a living,” he said.
“You feel infinitely more comfortable in the skin of your character than you do in life. There is one character that comes back to me quite a lot and that’s this Raoul Duke — a Hunter S Tompson character from Fear and Loathing and Las Vegas. It happens just because you find yourself in certain situation where you don’t feel you are capable to deal with it as you.”
Depp recently admitted he wants to “run away” from modern life.
“Sometimes I’d like to run away screaming from our technology-obsessed world, the invasive media, the madness of reality TV,” he said.
“We’ve lost touch with the simple things of life. We’re losing our individuality.”
