Johnny Depp Covers 'Vanity Fair' November 2011

Johnny Depp crosses his arms on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s November 2011 issue, on newsstands Thursday (October 6) in New York and Los Angeles and nationally on Wednesday (October 12).

Here’s what the 48-year-old actor had to share:

On despising photo shoots: “You just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped. The whole thing. It feels like a kind of weird—just weird, man…. Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like—you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid.”

On why he feels compelled to take on as many projects as he can: “Basically, if they’re going to pay me the stupid money right now, I’m going to take it. I have to. I mean, it’s not for me. Do you know what I mean? At this point, it’s for my kids. It’s ridiculous, yeah, yeah. But ultimately is it for me? No. No. It’s for the kids.”

    I hate celebs who complain.
    if I got his millions I’d gladly get “raped”(get my picture taken).

    Johnny you’re amazing actor..BUT please can these stars stop comparing being photographed WHICH makes them more famous to being raped. Is it some trendy thing they say which they think makes them seem cool. Have they ever met anyone who has actually been raped? I hardly think being pampered and having everyone at you hand and foot to take your pic is comparable to being raped.

    Seriously, Johnny Depp? Is he SERIOUSLY comparing photo shoots to rape?

    That honestly offends me slightly.

    Let me count the reasons I love Johnny Depp (and its not his looks). to be fair, Johnny Depp has been anti fame and all that BS his entire career and before so the interviewer prob asked him about why he hates the paps and moved to France to get away etc.

    Idk, he seems cool, i’d drink with him and vanessa!

    I’m honestly slightly offended by the comparing of photoshoots to rape, that just honestly is the stupidest thing ever to say, and this is coming from someone who likes Johnny Depp.

    Oprah Says:

    Aw ****, I thought my last comment didn’t go through, so I made another…And this one to comment on it. XP

    Kirsten Says:

    I like Johnny but he shouldn’t have said the rape comments. Also, why take on silly projects to make more money? He’s already a superstar. He’s a great actor and it seems like he’s selling out a bit. He should focus on quality films. I still love him, though and the cover is nice.

    I will always love Johnny, but he is pretty ridiculous complaining abut photoshoots and comparing them to being raped. He talks about all the money he makes being for his kids, but he has a very expensive lifestyle too. He has the chateau in France, apartments in London, Paris, and New York, several houses in Hollywood, and he owns a private island, a few boats, and his own private jet. When was the last time you heard anything about him taking a commercial airplane? coming and going thru an airport like most other famous celebrities? He has a lot of people working for him, too, serving him and keeping up with all his “stuff.” He’s a beautiful looking man and a great actor when he wants to be, but please spare me all the goss.

    I wonder if Johnny’s gonna get sh*t for comparing rape and being photographed…same thing Kristen Stewart said and she got slammed by it. I mean, I’m sure they don’t mean to offend anyone. But it’s really just their opinion.

    Johnny just made a no no. There are just certian things you don’t say and comparing a photo shoot to getting raped is one of them. Johnny you signed up for this life style if you don’t like it anymore, quit. I think you’ve made enough money for you and your kids. A person who raped didn’t choose anything, they are victims of crimes and is a terrible ordeal. Again it’s just a big no no.

    he’s offensive for every raped victim and he worked with Polanski

    i can explain you dislike to be taken in pics but here he’s idiot and hypocrite

    Smile Says:

    Vanity Fair has three favorite actors who every single year grace their cover: Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp and Robert Pattinson.

    But comparing photoshoot to rape is beyond ridiculous. Nobody makes him to do it. Well if Depp wanted , he wouldn’t do this VF cover, right?Sometimes it’s really getting annoying when famous people complain about their life, fame, but they don’t complain when take millions dollars checks.

    @xoxo: Good point. Who would mind doing it?

    jane Says:

    hm… I lOVE Johnny Depp, but last time Kristen Stewart compared anything to rape she got a huge amount of crap. Deserved crap, but still. I doubt that’s going to happen to Johnny.

    soph Says:

    What? What he has is not enough to feed, dress and give his kids tons of opportunities most children never get? I mean, it’s not like he is a working actor who needs a paycheck to pay his bills. And then complaining? Money makes people a bit delusional which is kind of surprising when we are talking about Johnny Depp, I thought he was different:/

    you only get “raped” if your publicist calls the paps and tells them to do so…

    Bibi Says:

    He must have hundreds of millions by now. How much money do his kids need/spend? He and Vanessa look like borderline homeless people with their appearance. I am glad to see him fresh and cleaned up every once in a while when he is “raped” (photographed by world’s most talented photographers!!!)

    what? Says:

    Shut up, Johnny. Just shut up.
    He sold himself out to the all mighty dollar by doing garbage like Pirates 4 for the money, then he has the nerve to whine about fame?
    Then to top it, he compares getting his picture taken to rape?
    And we wonder why he supports Polanskl?
    That’s it.
    He will never get another dollar at the box office from me.

    eww Says:

    Has he had work done?
    He looks….different.
    BTW Johnny.
    After that comment about rape…..go to h*ll.

    Victoria Says:

    Kristen Stewart made similar comments last year about how she felt she was “raped” regarding the media intrusion into her private life. I wonder how the public will react to a male star’s, in this case Johnny Depp (who is is a more popular artist ) as compared to a female making similar comments. I remember it was there was a lot of negative PR she received where her publicist had to issue a statement and do some damage control with RAINN.

    Just an interesting thought. I think we understand why stars might feel violated but their choices of words in describing their emotions and experiences should be considered and chosen carefully. Their comments are read my many and can be considered insensitive in an area of already difficult issue. My thoughts go out for the people who have unfortunately are victims of a horrendous crime nonetheless.

    Thank you.
