As if in retirement, Johnny Depp is spending his time in the quiet English countryside.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor is enjoying life in the English countryside, far from the limelight, a far cry from the flashy showbiz lifestyle he came to know so well in Hollywood.
“I love places with character. I have several houses in various places and they all mean something special to me,” the 59-year-old once said, according to the magazine. Somerset Life.
“I don’t have them just to say I have them, I have them to wear and because they are a little bit special.”
“In truth, I am quite a shy person,” he added. “That’s one of the great things about Britain, and especially Somerset. I can just be me, and that’s good.”
Depp said that Living your low-key lifestyle is made easier because of your neighborhood.
“The British are great and will greet you like a neighbor without being over the top,” he said.
“I don’t care if people want an autograph or a quick chat, but not when i have a private moment with my family”.
“I can go to the stores without being surrounded by people who want selfies. I don’t mind to a certain extent, but sometimes it gets too crowded,” added the “Rum Diary” star.
Earlier this month, Depp happened to fly by helicopter to Lincolnshire, northern England, to make a surprise visit to an antiques shop.
The actor bought “a lot of fancy items, as well as some furniture for his own house in London,” the shop owner told Fox Business.
Last year, the “Cry Baby” star went head-to-head with his ex-wife Amber Heard in a highly publicized defamation trial.
Depp was legally victorious in the case, but Heard’s team has since filed an attempt to appeal the jury’s verdict, which ordered Depp to pay more than $10 million in damages.
The actor, who was in the UK when the verdict was delivered, said in a statement: “The jury brought me back to life.”
