Johnny Depp is out promoting his new movie, Transcendence, and stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to chat about that and… his rage issues, apparently. Since he recently turned 50, he’s feeling a lot calmer about things in life, which I think is probably a good thing for all of us.
“I think when you’re younger, 50 sounds old, and…you have this image of yourself,” DeGeneres told the Transcendence star. “But don’t you think you’re just getting better and better?”
“Well, calmer. You know, more calm,” Depp replied. “Less…well, not less weirdness, but less rage, maybe.” He noted, too, that there’s “less drama” in his life now. “Far less drama,” he stressed.
“It feels good,” he continued. “You definitely feel you’ve earned your stripes and you’re a little bit wiser, having been predominantly ignorant for the majority of your life.”
Good for him for embracing aging in Hollywood gracefully… then again, it’s a bit easier for the men folk, isn’t it, ladies?
