Johnny Depp finds meeting expectations after 'Pirates...' tough
Los Angeles: After a string of flop films like “Transcendence” and “The Lone Ranger”, actor Johnny Depp says it is difficult to live up to the success of his "Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise.
The actor, who portrayed the character of Captain Jack Sparrow, opened up about his career in an interview with Details magazine, reports usmagazine.com.
“It's like being a dog at the track. They expect you to live up to some race you happened to be in and won accidentally. From that first second, you're nothing more than a commodity. They have expectations of another 'Pirates'. It's great if something works. Boy, that's killer. But God, to have that as your design... it's ugly, I think,” the actor said.
The 51-year-old also said that he doesn't care about what the critics have to say about his films.
“First, I reached a point where I cared so much and was so diligent in terms of approaching the work. Then you get to where you care so f--king much that it gets goddamn beleaguering, you know? But then a great thing happens.
"Suddenly you care enough to not give a f--k, because not giving a f--k, that's the total liberation. Being game to try anything," the actor added.
