Johnny Depp's friends, family and business associates have to keep in contact with the Hollywood actor by email because he doesn't own a cell phone.
The Tourist star refuses to carry a portable telephone and instead relies on the internet for all of his communications.
Depp is adamant online messaging is safer and more interesting than using a mobile phone, and he feels liberated by remaining out of touch.
He tells Access Hollywood, "We have internet and stuff like that because I think that's the safest form, well, most interesting form of communication. I just don't like phones, I just don't like them. Being reachable all the time... (If you want to contact me,) you'd have to know how to just buzz me on the internet or something."
