Brando taught Depp never to discuss his personal life with mediaDecember 19th, 2007 - 6:44 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Dec 18 (ANI): Actor Johnny Depp has revealed that late movie icon Marlon Brando taught him never to discuss his personal life with the media.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star said he did a television interview where he talked about his family life but was shocked when he received an angry phone call from Brando after the interview aired.
“I had done some television interview, and they asked about my family life and kids. I talked about how I’m a proud father and how much I love my kids and how they’re fun and what we do and how it’s great, Conatctmusic quoted Depp, as saying.
“I was thinking that if in 25, 35 years my kids watch old footage, I’d be proud for them to see their dad saying how much he loves them.
“Well, the show aired, and I get a phone call: ‘What the f**k are you doing?’ I said, ‘Marlon, what are you talking about?’ He said, ‘That’s none of their business!’ “I tried to say, ‘Marlon, listen, man, I only wanted my kids to…’”
“And it was like he gave me this sort of once-over. ‘You don’t do it, man. That’s your world and it’s nobody else’s business. It’s not anybody’s entertainment.’ And he was right,” he added. (ANI)
