Johnny Depp Doesn't Leave the House for Months at a Time

Johnny Depp is infamously private when it comes to his private life. In fact, he's so keen on staying out of the limelight, he literally only leaves the house when he has to.

“We have a great place in the South of France.,” he said. “It’s a little hamlet — only about 45 acres — and I don’t do anything. I’ve not left the property for three months at a time. I literally just wake up, go out, check the garden and see the vegetables growing. It’s a pristine existence in terms of simplicity.

“There’s no talk of movies or work and, infinitely more important, the telephone never rings. It really is a beautiful, simple life.”

He also claims that his decision to buy a private island in the Caribbean was a spur of the moment decision.

“Like everything else in my life it wasn’t planned, it just kind of happened,” he said. “I went on vacation to escape with my kiddies and my girl and someone said that there was an island down the road for sale.

“I said, ‘Let’s go see it.’ I looked at it, I walked on it and I was done. It had to be. It came at the perfect moment for me.

“The island provides me with simplicity and somewhere I can go where no one is looking at me or pointing a camera or a finger at me. I can just be. When we’re there we do absolutely nothing.”

The fact that Johnny has removed himself from society may be the reason why he's so down to earth. He's perhaps the nicest, most humble celebrity in the industry!
