Washington (ANI): Actor Johnny Depp has revealed that he had not thought of becoming an actor until pal Nicolas Cage put the suggestion to him. The Pirates Of The Caribbean star admitted that Cage suggested that he might be able to carve out a career on the big screen. "Nic said, 'Why don't you try acting? I think you could probably do it.' I remember saying, 'I'll try anything, man. I gotta live without calling home and begging for money,'" Contactmusic quoted Depp as telling Rolling Stone magazine.
"So I met his agent, and she sent me to read for a movie (Nightmare on Elm Street), and they hired me." "I never wanted to be an actor. It just seemed like a good way to make easy money. I didn't care what the movies were. If you were going to pay me, fine. That was my philosophy," he added.
