Although the Depp family owns its share of pricey properties, don’t expect flash bulbs, Ferraris and gold-plated toilet seats — because the purpose of most of Johnny Depp’s major investments is to allow his family to enjoy a simple, private life.
On his family’s private island in the Caribbean:
“Like everything else in my life it wasn’t planned, it just kind of happened. I went on vacation to escape with my kiddies and my girl and someone said that there was an island down the road for sale.
I said, Let’s go see it.’ I looked at it, I walked on it and I was done. It had to be. It came at the perfect moment for me.
The island provides me with simplicity and somewhere I can go where no one is looking at me or pointing a camera or a finger at me. I can just be. When we’re there we do absolutely nothing.”
Apparently, Johnny hasn’t left his 45-acre hamlet in France for 3 months, but he’ll soon be hanging out with Brad, Angelina and their 6 kids while he films The Tourist in Venice. Jokes Johnny: “I feel I’m not getting photographed by the paparazzi enough, so I figure I’ll go and hang out in Venice with Brad and Angelina.”
