Johnny Depp Has a New Outlook on Life

Johnny Depp is intensely personal, so it's always a special treat when we get to hear him open up. He recently chatted with EW and melted our hearts talking about the scare back in March when his daughter Lily-Rose got very sick after an accident at their farm. Here's more:

"To say it was the darkest moment, that's nothing. It doesn't come close to describing it. Words are so small. But knowing that those people, Tim and the crew, shut down and stood by and waited ... I didn't know if I was coming back. I remember talking with Tim, saying, `Maybe you need to recast.' Now every single millisecond is a mini-celebration. Every time we get to breathe in and exhale is a huge victory. She pulled through beautifully, perfectly, with no lasting anything. Once we were given the all-clear, I had to dive back into the work. I had to get back in there for Tim."

We couldn't be happier for Johnny that Lily-Rose pulled through and made a full recovery, and we're selfishly glad that he was able to finish his work on Sweeney Todd. You can't really go wrong with Johnny and Tim working together.

There is nothing like the fear of losing your child and being powerless to stop it. Then, when it all turns around, it takes you a while to decompress from the trauma. After that you are left with that exact feeling- you evaluate every moment. Your child does something fantastic (or average, for that matter) and it occurs to you that it almost never happened. It's mind boggling.

And also, about press making up stories...? Same deal with the stepping on a nail business; That never happened, either. In fact, the press implied that she injured her foot, and that Johnny and Vanessa didn't treat it, thus causing her to come down with blood poisoning. This implies bad parenting, and neglect, and it would make me so happy if Johnny and Vanessa sued for libel. Johnny and Vanessa got some really nasty comments about their parenting skills because of that story, and I can't think of two people who deserve comments like that less. OK, rant over. Sorry to go on, I just... I love them.

There was no accident on any farm; that was made up by the press, because when they don't have enough facts to make a story, they make up their own 'facts'. She had e-coli posioning. Thank god she's pulled through. I just hope Johnny and Vanessa have recovered from their ordeal, too.

Does anyone know what kind of accident made her so sick? It is so beautiful to hear him talk about his family that way. You can tell he really has his priorities straight, and that he has a lot of integrity (both in work and family). Ah, Johnny. You hot hot man.

It just seems odd with them saying "an accident at the farm"... Sounds like a tractor injury or something! Eeesh!
