Johnny Depp calling it quits when he hits 50?
I don't know about anyone else, but I would watch Johnny at age 99 in an infomercial about wheelchairs at 2 am on a Wednesday morning. He better keep it coming long after 50!


Johnny Depp Wants To Quit Films At 50

Pirates Of The Caribbean star Johnny Depp is nearing the end of his acting career, insisting he will not appear on screen after he turns 50.

The 43-year-old heart-throb is concerned that his ageing appearance will affect how he is seen by the public.

He says: "I won't last in film much after I turn 50. People go on about how well I look for my age, but what happens when it all drops? I could end up as the Cliff Richard of film."

That's pretty stupid if it's true. It follows the stereotype that people of a certain age shouldn't be on the big screen, that Hollywood only wants to see youth, youth, youth. At least if you're so talented, and a MAN, one would think you'd use the opportunities that are handed to you so easily.

Johnny should know he gets nominated for awards not because of his looks but because of his talent.

Hopefully he didn't really say that.

Sounds like low self esteem to me You don't hear this sort of crap from Anthony Hopkins, that's for sure ...

They ALL come back eventually anyway in Hollywood. They retire and then expect us all to make a huge deal when they "come back" to grace us with their presence.

Here's a shout-out for your comeback at age 51, Johnny, just in case I forget to do it later :p

"Scissorhands forever"

Your greatest fan,

It sounds so childish, like "Wah wah wah I want to be gorgeous forever." Gimme a break. Your problems are so small!

yeah, remarkably vain for someone who always seems to choose unusual/nontraditional roles.

though maybe he'll have a second career, perhaps as my ageless cabana boy.
