Johnny Depp: 'Sometimes I'd Like to Run Away' from Modern Life.

Johnny Depp lives a fairly secluded life with his partner Vanessa Paradis and their children Lily-Rose, 11, and eight-year old Jack, and he likes it that way. In fact, Depp thinks it's difficult to maintain a sense of self in today's fast-paced world.

He explained: “Sometimes I’d like to run away screaming from our technology-obsessed world, the invasive media, the madness of reality TV.

“We’ve lost touch with the simple things of life. We’re losing our individuality.”

Johnny, 47, lives in the south of France with his family, but he and Vanessa, 38, own a Caribbean island where they can retreat for some privacy, which the actor says is crucial to keep him sane.

He told Red Bulletin magazine: “The island might sound extravagant but I need somewhere I can breathe easily or just sit around and chat without someone taking my picture.”

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor used to be famed for his wild partying, and he credits meeting Vanessa 12 years ago with helping him turn his life around.

He said: “Anything I’d done before was kind of an illusion.

“My daughter, the birth of my daughter, gave me life.

“Now, my greatest hope is that I’ll be fair to the people I love.”
