by at . Comments

In the latest issue of Vanity Fair, Johnny Depp does not shy away from strong opinions.

Johnny Depp in Vanity Fair

On working with Angelina Jolie on The Tourist: "You don't know what she might be like - if she has any sense of humor at all. I was so pleased to find that she is incredibly normal, and has a wonderfully kind of dark, perverse sense of humor."

Who does Angelina remind him of? "I've had the honor and the pleasure and the gift of having known Elizabeth Taylor for a number of years. You you know, you sit down with her, she slings hash, she sits there and cusses like a sailor, and she's hilarious. Angie's got the same kind of thing, you know, the same approach."

On Disney's initial reaction to Captain Jack Sparrow: "I think it was Michael Eisner, the head of Disney at the time, who was quoted as saying, 'He's ruining the movie.' Upper-echelon Disney-ites, going, 'What’s wrong with him? ... Is he drunk? By the way, is he gay?' And so I actually told this woman who was the Disney-ite ... 'But didn’t you know that all my characters are gay?' Which really made her nervous."

On accidentally falling into acting as a career: "I had no desire, no interest, really in it at all. I was a musician and I was a guitarist, and that's what I wanted to do."

The Tourist opens on December 10. Check out its official trailer now:
