Johnny Depp: Became an actor by accident

Johnny-DeppDepp gave his first public interview since his acrimonious divorce from estranged wife Amber Heard on a radio talk show on June 26, but made no mention of his legal battle or allegations made against him.

The 53-year-old appeared on the Jonesy’s Jukebox radio talk show alongside his band members from the Hollywood Vampires — Matt Sorum, Robert DeLeo and Bruce Witkin.

During the interview, Depp revealed that he stumbled into acting while trying to pursue music as a teenager, reports people.com.

“I’ve (been a musician) since I was little. I have played since I was 12. I started playing clubs when I was like 13 in Miami,” Depp said.

“I needed to pay rent. Somebody said, ‘Why don’t you go meet an agent. My agent is with Nick Cage,’ so she sent me on an audition for something and I got it,” he added.

Depp said it wasn’t until his band broke up that he considered acting full-time.

“It seemed like a good way to pay the rent for a minute,” he said.

Even as his divorce battle with Heard continues, Depp plans to take the stage with his band during their US tour, which commences from July 1 in Pennsylvania.

A Los Angeles court hearing has been scheduled for August 15 and 16 on Heard’s request for a permanent restraining order against Depp amid allegations that he abused her throughout their relationship. A temporary restraining order has been reissued in the interim.
