Johnny Depp: I’m Mesmerized by "Honey Boo Boo"

Noel Vasquez/Getty Images for Extra(NEW YORK) -- When Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is on television, Johnny Depp can’t look away.

In a recent interview with Extra, The Lone Ranger star admitted he has a polarizing relationship with the sometimes controversial program. “I’m a little frightened of the show,” Depp said. “They’re probably great people, but there are bits that happen that just I am mesmerized by.”

The acting vet of almost 30 years laughed and added that when push comes to shove, he could be called a fan of the 7-year-old Alana Thompson, who first gained fame as a child beauty pageant contestant on Toddlers & Tiaras.

Depp, who’s linked romantically to his The Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard, also discussed the possibility of calling it quits in the next decade.

He was a little torn when asked about his comments in Rolling Stone on how he contemplates retirement “every day” and would like nothing more than to concentrate on “really living life.”

“Naw, I don’t know about retirement,” Depp told Extra. “I really do love making characters and making movies.”


“Yeah, I mean sometime in the next 10 years, you probably just want to kind of be able to look around a little more, wander a bit and maybe experience some degree of anonymity somewhere.”

Not possible.

Kate Moss Talks Heroin, Crying Over Johnny Depp

Vanity Fair(NEW YORK) -- Even Kate Moss has insecurities. In a new interview in Vanity Fair's December issue, the 38-year-old supermodel opened up about how Johnny Depp damaged her and how modeling made her a mess.

Moss and Depp began a high profile, four-year relationship during the 1990s. Moss said it was one of the first times she felt taken care of.

“There’s nobody that’s ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said,” Moss said. “Like if I said, ‘What do I do?,’ he’d tell me.”

When he left, it was a disaster.

“And that’s what I missed when I left,” she said. “I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!”

Moss said she had some regrets about posing topless with “Marky” Mark Wahlberg for the 1992 Calvin Klein photo shoot that made her famous. Around age 17, Moss had a nervous breakdown.

“It didn’t feel like me at all. I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy,” she said. "I didn’t like it. I couldn’t get out of bed for two weeks. I thought I was going to die.”

She shot to fame in the 1990s as the face of “heroin chic,” a look characterized by rail-thin, pale models with angular bones and dark eyes. But Moss said she never took part in the drug. Moss was photographed snorting cocaine in 2005 and was questioned by British police. She ultimately avoided charges.

“I had never even taken heroin. It was nothing to do with me at all,” Moss said. “I was thin, but that’s because I was doing shows, working really hard. At that time, I was staying at a B and B in Milan, and you’d get home from work and there was no food. You’d get to work in the morning, there was no food. Nobody took you out for lunch when I started.”

Moss said she was never anorexic and that if she were, she wouldn’t have been able to work. She also recalled how uncomfortable she felt when posing nude, saying she would lock herself in the bathroom and cry before stripping down.

After all that, maybe it’s no surprise that when she’s not working, Moss hates being photographed.

“I don’t want to be myself, ever. I’m terrible at a snapshot. Terrible,” she said. "I blink all the time. I’ve got facial Tourette’s. Unless I’m working and in that zone, I’m not very good at pictures, really.”

Johnny Depp’s Newly Single Life

ABC/RICHARD CARTWRIGHT(NEW YORK) -- Just days after Johnny Depp announced his split from longtime girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, reports are swirling about the actor's newly single life.

Depp has already been linked to a handful of women, including his Dark Shadows co-star Eva Green and The Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard, according to People magazine. Reports linked the co-stars earlier this year after Heard was spotted boarding a private plane with the actor headed for Las Vegas. But the openly bisexual actress also brought along her girlfriend, artist Tasya van Ree.

Depp has also been seen regularly hanging around Hollywood bad boy Marilyn Manson, including spending late nights at the rocker's home and jamming on guitar at a Manson concert in April.

The actor is currently busy working on Disney's The Lone Ranger in Albuquerque, N.M., and Creede, Colo., but has been frequently hopping on a private plane back to Los Angeles, sometimes several times a week, according to People.

As for Paradis, she was seen returning to her native Paris June 14 after promoting her film, Je Me Suis Fait Tout Petit, at the Cabourg Festival of Romantic Cinema.

"She looked tired," an observer told People. "She just didn't look well or happy."

Depp's spokeswoman confirmed the Pirates of the Caribbean star's split this week, after months of speculation.

"Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated.  Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children," said his publicist in a statement to ABC News. The couple, never married, was together for 14 years.

Paradis, 39, and Depp, 48, once lived a very private life together in the romantic hamlet of Plan-de-la-Tour, France.  But over the last few years they often lived in different homes -  Depp in Hollywood, Paradis often in France.  The couple has two children together.

In January of this year while promoting her film Café De Flore, Paradis said she didn't buy the idea of marriage or soul mates because "if you lose your soul mate everything is done for."

"'The idea of a soul mate is beautiful and very romantic to talk about in a movie or a song," she said, "but in reality, I find it scary."

While she was talking about the movie, Depp and Paradis have been outspoken about not needing a piece of paper to be a fully committed couple. They first got together in June 1998.  According to People, Depp spotted Paradis sitting at a bar in Paris.  He was so taken with her that he sent a friend over to invite her to his table where they talked for two hours.
