Johnny Depp Blasts Reality Shows

Johnny DeppJohnny Depp hates reality shows.

The 50-year-old actor is terrified of the modern world's obsession with material goods and reality star icons, and believes the shallow craze will be the downfall of society in a few years' time. "It's really frightening. And when you see all this stuff that goes on in the commercials - the endless commercials - people yelling down your gob, 'Buy this, do this, this will save you, this will fix you.' Everything can be a reality show now. Imagine what's it going to be in 20 f***ing years, man," he mused to Interview magazine.

Johnny - who is engaged to Amber Heard and has children Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11, with former partner Vanessa Paradis - also went on to apparently slam stars like the Kardashians and Paris Hilton by lamenting that talentless socialites have become idols to a whole generation thanks to the phenomenon that is reality TV. "People get famous now for I-don't-know-what. People have reality shows because they're a Hollywood socialite, and these things become very successful and they generate a s**tload of money for the company. And it's multiplying, to where you're literally looking into your next door neighbor's bathroom with reckless abandon. It is like watching a fire. You can't take your eyes off of it," The Rum Diary star added.
