Johnny Depp has revealed that he has resorted to some bizarre disguises, so he can avoid being recognised in public.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean star admitted he would even wear false noses and facial hair in an attempt to blend into obscurity.

"I've worn ridiculous things to be able to go out in public. I'll glue on a fake nose and a ZZ Top beard," he said.

"I'll wear a bandana over my head and I'll look like a weathered roadie!" he added.

Johnny, who played Native American warrior Tonto in Disney's The Lone Ranger, also revealed he doesn't watch his screen performances.

"A long time ago, I made a choice that I was better off not watching my films, which is a drag because I miss out on a lot of my friends' incredible work. But I feel like it would harm me," he admitted.

"I'd rather stay as ignorant as possible about the results of playing a character, because once you've finished playing the character; it's really none of your business any more."

He added: "After you've finished, it's down to the director to make any choices about what happens on screen. My job is to give options to the director - and that's it."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Expressing your creative side is strongly advised. Take this opportunity to write, paint or play music. Relatives may not appreciate your work, but that doesn't matter. The important thing is to satisfy your own taste. People who are daring and experimental will appreciate your efforts. Don't be surprised if you're given a chance to showcase your work in a magazine, boutique or gallery. Fame and acclaim can be yours, so long as you're willing to follow your instincts.More
