JOHNNY DEPP only learned to appreciate life following the birth of his first child because he felt "angry and frustrated" before becoming a father.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star commands multi-million dollar pay cheques for his projects, but admits he only truly started enjoying life when he settled down with Vanessa Paradis and became a dad to daughter Lily-Rose in 1999.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "There is nothing on earth that could ever make me want to relive certain years of my life when I was young.
"You grow up a bit damaged or broken then you have some success but you don't know how to feel good about the work you're doing or the life you're leading.
"You feel empty. I was angry and frustrated until I started my own family and my first child was born. Until then I didn't really appreciate life the way I should have, but fortunately I woke up."
Depp also has a son, Jack, 10.
