Depp to quit at 50
16:30 11 August 2006
Johnny Depp says he will retire from acting in seven years time.
The 43-year-old 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star believes his sex appeal will not last for much longer and he worries his looks will fade once he hits 50.
He said: "I won't last in film much after I turn 50. People go on about how well I look for my age, but what happens when it all drops?"
While Depp may fear his sex symbol status is fading, his recent performance as Captain Jack Sparrow in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' have proved he is still a hit with the ladies - after adoring female fans from all over the world flocked to see him at the premieres.
Meanwhile, the actor may be moving to Britain after buying a £500,000 house in Bath.
Johnny and his French partner Vanessa Paradis were also reportedly seen looking around local schools.
The couple have lived in the singer's homeland France since the birth of their daughter Lily-Rose seven years ago, but now they appear keen to move to England.
The pair - who also have a four-year-old son Jack - fell in love with the historic UK city while Johnny was filming 'Chocolat' in 2000.
