Johnny Depp has said that even though he has been in the public eye for more than half his life, he still isn't comfortable in the spotlight - and probably never will be.
Depp and his family share their time between four homes around the world, and the devoted dad still takes his kids to school each day when he can, but says he "prefers to stay in the background" so he isn't too embarrassing.
In a recent interview, the Pirates Of The Caribbean star compared being photographed to being "raped", comments he has since apologised for after angering anti-sexual violence groups.
"I used the wrong word, but I meant the violation you feel when you're hit by the paparazzi, and all those cameras and people screaming your name," he explained.
"It's a very strange and surreal moment you never get used to. I've been running that gauntlet for more than 25 years now and it's stranger and worse than it ever was."
Johnny can currently be seen in The Rum Diary, based on the debut novel by his great friend, the late Hunter S Thompson
The release of The Rum Diary marks the fulfilment of Thompson's final two wishes. One was to shoot his cremated ashes out of a cannon, while the other was to get the film made.
"When Hunter made his exit back in 2005, I had to focus my attention on getting his last wish ready - to load him into a bunch of giant bullets and shoot him into the sky out of a 153ft cannon," said Depp.
"His other wish was to get The Rum Diary made and to get it out there. We've done that now and I feel all my commitments to Hunter are done."
