    10 Actors Turned Musicians Johnny Depp Probably Hates

    The Mortdecai star isn't a fan of you actor/musicians!

    You know what Johnny Depp hates more than anything? Actors turned musicians.

    Depp told reporters in Berlin, "The kind of luxury now is, anybody with a certain amount of success, if you have a kind of musical being, you can go out and start a band and capitalise on your work in other areas. But I hate the idea, Come see me play the guitar because you've seen me in 12 movies. It shouldn't be that way. You want the people who are listening to the music to only be interested in the music."

    Depp says he's sickened by the whole thing, which means he's probably sickened by his Mortdecai co-star, Gwyneth Paltrow, who's used her fame to push a few singles.
