Johnny Depp Is 'Basically Blind' In His Left Eye
Though he possess a plethora of characters in his repertoire, the Oscar-nominated actor can barely see what he's doing most of the time.
In his latest interview with Rolling Stone, Depp revealed that he's always suffered bad vision -- to a point where he's "basically blind as a bat" in his left eye. His trademark tinted glasses are what helps him see. Well, kind of.
"Everything is just very, very blurry," he said. "I've never had proper vision."
The publication added that the Lone Ranger actor's right eye is nearsighted (and lately, far-sighted) and has difficulty seeing past a few inches from his face without his glasses.his breakup with longtime girlfriend and mother of his two children, Vanessa Paradis.
"The last couple years have been a bit bumpy. At times, certainly unpleasant, but that's the nature of breakups, I guess, especially when there are kiddies involved," he told the music mag.
"Relationships are very difficult. Especially in the racket that I'm in because you're constantly away or they're away and so it's hard. It wasn't easy on her. It wasn't easy on me. It wasn't easy on the kids. So, yeah. The trajectory of that relationship - you play it out until it goes, one thing leads to another"
He continued, "So for whatever reason that ceases, it doesn't stop the fact that you care for that person, and they're the mother of your kids, and you'll always know each other, and you're always gonna be in each other's lives because of those kids. You might as well make the best of it."
The couple, who's been dating since 1998, split last June.
