JOHHNY DEPP admits he’s overpaid. A lot. But he’ll take the money however way it’s paid to him. Do the producers of the “Pirates Of The Caribbean” franchise feel the same way after Jack Sparrow’s had his way with their deep, deep pockets?
According to entertainment news today, swashbuckling Johnny received a whopping overpay of $300 million for all four “Pirates” films. That’s a total of $75 million per film, not counting his share of box office and film merchandize proceeds…
In fact, his salary has landed Johnny in the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest paid actor in the world.
“Basically, if they’re going to pay me the stupid money right now, I’m going to take it,”
Johnny‘s declared pointblank.
Depp has two kids with partner, French actress and singer Vanessa Paradis, and Lilly-Rose, 12 and Jack, 9 are dearer to him than any popular opinion about his earning powers ever will be.
And also because Johnny believes there’s…
“a part of me that needs to have this kind of stimulation to the brain.”
And by stimulation, does he mean the acting, or the money?
We’re rather thinking it’s both…
