Depp gave his first public interview on a radio talk show on June 26, since his acrimonious divorce from estranged wife Amber Heard amid allegations that he abused her throughout their relationship. However, he made no mention of his legal battle or allegations made against him.
The 53-year-old appeared on the ‘Jonesy’s Jukebox’ radio talk show alongside his band members from the Hollywood Vampires -Matt Sorum, Robert DeLeo and Bruce Witkin. During the interview, Depp revealed that he stumbled into acting while trying to pursue music as a teenager, reported people.com.
“I’ve (been a musician) since I was 12-year-old . I started playing clubs when I was 13 in Miami,” Depp said. “I needed to pay rent. Somebody said, ‘Why don’t you go meet an agent. My agent is with Nick Cage,’ so she sent me on an audition for something and I got it,” he added.
Depp said it wasn’t until his band broke up that he considered acting full-time. “It seemed like a good way to pay the rent for a minute,” he said.
