Noel Vasquez/Getty Images for Extra(NEW YORK) — When Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is on television, Johnny Depp can’t look away.

In a recent interview with Extra, The Lone Ranger star admitted he has a polarizing relationship with the sometimes controversial program. “I’m a little frightened of the show,” Depp said. “They’re probably great people, but there are bits that happen that just I am mesmerized by.”

The acting vet of almost 30 years laughed and added that when push comes to shove, he could be called a fan of the 7-year-old Alana Thompson, who first gained fame as a child beauty pageant contestant on Toddlers & Tiaras.

Depp, who’s linked romantically to his The Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard, also discussed the possibility of calling it quits in the next decade.

He was a little torn when asked about his comments in Rolling Stone on how he contemplates retirement “every day” and would like nothing more than to concentrate on “really living life.”

“Naw, I don’t know about retirement,” Depp told Extra. “I really do love making characters and making movies.”


“Yeah, I mean sometime in the next 10 years, you probably just want to kind of be able to look around a little more, wander a bit and maybe experience some degree of anonymity somewhere.”

Not possible.
