Johnny Depp is almost blind

London, Jun 19, 2013 (PTI):

Superstar Johnny Depp has revealed he is completely blind in one eye. The 'Lone Ranger' star, who is rarely photographed without a pair of tinted glasses, said he is near-sighted in the other eye and that's why he relies heavily on prescription glasses, reported Contactmusic.

"Everything is just very, very blurry. I've never had proper vision," he said. The 50-year-old actor, who has two children Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11, with his ex-girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, said he can only see a few inches from his face if he is playing a character that does not wear glasses or sunglasses.

Meanwhile, the actor, who is now dating actress Amber Heard, also revealed that he thinks about retiring from Hollywood 'every day'.

"I think while I've got the opportunity and the desire and the creative spark to do the things that I can do right now, I should do them. And then, at a certain point, just take it down to the bare minimum and concentrate on, I guess, living life.

"Really living life. And going somewhere where you don't have to be on the run, or sneak in through the kitchen or the underground labyrinth of the hotel. At a certain point, when you get old enough or get a few brain cells back, you realise that, on some level, you lived a life of a fugitive," he added.
