Johnny Depp Was Unhappy Before Having Kids

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

JOHNNY Depp says becoming a father finally made him happy.

The actor — who raises two kids with partner Vanessa Paradis — admits he was miserable until he had children.

“There is nothing on earth that could ever make me want to relive certain years of my life when I was young,” he said.

“You grow up a bit damaged or broken then you have some success but you don’t know how to feel good about the work you’re doing or the life you’re leading.

“You feel empty. I was angry and frustrated until I started my own family and my first child was born. Until then I didn’t really appreciate life the way I should have, but fortunately I woke up.”
