Pi­rates of the Caribbean” star Johnny Depp (left) says that he be­came an ac­tor by “ac­ci­dent”. Depp gave his first pub­lic in­ter­view since his ac­ri­mo­nious di­vorce from es­tranged wife Am­ber Heard on a ra­dio talk show on June 26, but 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, re­ports peo­ple. com. “I’ve (been a mu­si­cian) since I was lit­tle. I have played since I was 12. I started play­ing clubs when I was like 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.

Even as his di­vorce bat­tle with Heard con­tin­ues, Depp plans to take the stage with his band dur­ing their US tour, this month. A Los An­ge­les court hear­ing has been sched­uled for Au­gust 15 and 16 on Heard’s re­quest for a per­ma­nent re­strain­ing order against Depp amid al­le­ga­tions that he abused her through­out their re­la­tion­ship.
