“That’s part of my rebellious side.”
Another about Depp he portrays the real-life Boston mobster Whitey Bugler in Black Mass, it is about a horrible person, Depp said he doesn’t think of him as a monster,

“With Bulger, whatever they’ve done in their life, good, bad, they’re still human at the end of the day.”
“I didn’t find it at all strange, that advice,” Johnny said. “I remember when I was a kid, maybe six years old, and there was some little horror at school who was needling me.
“I think I told my mum and she said to me, ‘Alright, here’s the deal. The next time anybody puts their hands on you, pick up a brick and lay them out’.
“And I’ve taken that advice ever since. So it worked for me, and if somebody tried to bully my kid, if they didn’t destroy the little booger, I would.”
