Depp: I wouldn't change The Tourist

Johnny Depp has defended The Tourist

Johnny Depp has jumped to the defence of his latest film The Tourist, insisting he wouldn't change a thing about it.

Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's thriller, which also starred Angelina Jolie, was expected to be a box office hit but had a disappointing opening weekend on its release last month.

"I'd do it exactly the same - I don't know the main ingredient of success at the box office, I just feel that's not something I can do anything about," he told Entertainment Weekly.

Despite the film receiving miserable reviews, with Rotten Tomatoes saying it had a "slow, muddled plot" and a "lack of chemistry" between the two stars, it is up for three Golden Globe awards, including acting nods for Johnny and Angelina.

Johnny, who plays a maths teacher caught up in international intrigue while on a European holiday, continued: "I wanted to work with Angelina and I felt like I had a good handle on the character. It was not a character that I'd really played before."

Next for the actor is Gore Verbinski's Rango, where he voices the title chameleon hero, and the fourth instalment of Pirates Of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which will be released in May.

Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
