The amazing Johnny Depp says that hi mother has played a vital role in his life, She taught him how to tackle the bullies and that advice has saved him from the precursors of life. Currently the actor is playing tough criminal James ‘Whitey’ Bulger in Black Mass, which has created loads of Oscars buzz. While Johnny is much softer than his evil alter ego he does know how to hold his own thanks to lessons learnt early on in life.

“She toughened me up,” he answered Germany’s TV Direkt magazine when asked what his mother taught him. When he was bullied in preschool, his mother advised him to pack a punch and that’s exactly what he did and they left him in peace. He continued to hold on to that advice metaphorically because you just can’t allow any unfair treatment. With that said, theĀ 52-year-old Johnny has two beautiful kids, Lily-Rose and son Jack with his ex-partner Vanessa Paradis and is happily married to Amber Heard. His life is not complicated but complete.
