I was angry and frustrated until my first child was born, says Johnny Depp

   May 8, 5:42 pm

London, May 8 (ANI): Johnny Depp has revealed his life was miserable until he started his own family and had kids.

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star undeniably had it tough when he was growing up.

His parents divorced when he was 15 and he used to self-harm as a way of coping with personal problems.

But he admitted that this "emptiness" remained until he had children Lily-Rose, now 12, and Jack, ten, with long-term partner Vanessa Paradis, 39.

"There is nothing on earth that could ever make me want to relive certain years of my life when I was young," the Sun quoted the actor as saying in an exclusive interview.

"You grow up a bit damaged or broken then you have some success but you don't know how to feel good about the work you're doing or the life you're leading.

"You feel empty. I was angry and frustrated until I started my own family and my first child was born. Until then I didn't really appreciate life the way I should have, but fortunately I woke up," he stated.

Coincidentally, waking up is the central theme of his new movie 'Dark Shadows', his eighth collaboration with oddball director Tim Burton.

The film sees Depp playing a vampire who comes round after being buried alive for two centuries. (ANI)
