A revista Playboy de maio traz uma entrevista com Johnny Depp. O ator de 40 anos fala um pouco sobre uso de drogas e sua carreira.
Li pedaços dessa entrevista no jornal The SacBee. Vou colocar aqui, em inglês mesmo, pois estou com preguiceira de traduzir.
. on his drug use: “I was never a cokehead or anything like that. I always despised that drug. I thought it was a waste of time, pointless. But I was poisoning myself with alcohol and medicating myself. I was trying not to feel things, and that’s ridiculous.”
. on acting: “I never really had an interest in it in the beginning. Nicolas Cage – we had some mutual friends – introduced me to his agent. She sent me to a casting director, and I audicitioned for the first Nightmare on Elm Street. I got the job. I was stupefied. They paid me all that money for a week. It was luck, an accident. I did it purely to pay the rent.”
. on what appeals to him: “I have an affinity for damaged people, in life, in roles. I don’t know why. We’re all damaged in our own way. Nobody’s perfect. I think we are all somewhat screwy, every single one of us.”
