Hollywood big gun Johnny Depp has surprised many by claiming that the coveted award isn’t on his mind at all.
The Pirates of the Carribean star in a recent interview with BBC revealed that he isn’t really interested in winning the Academy Awards despite the buzz being generated by his portrayal of the Boston gangster James ‘Whitey’ Bulger in his latest movie Black Mass.
“I don’t want to win one of those things ever, you know. I don’t want to have to talk,” he said, referring to the acceptance speech he would have to give if he won the award. Johnny Depp continued, “The idea of winning means that you’re in competition with someone, and I’m not in competition with anybody, I just stick to my guns and do what I want to do. Sometimes people don’t like it, but that’s alright.“
