considers himself lucky to be such a successful actor as many of the movies he has made flopped at the box-office.
Depp, who has now tasted mainstream success thanks to the Pirates Of The Caribbean
films, admits he isn't a great judge of whether scripts he is sent will turn out to be profitable movies.
The 43-year-old says, "I was in a cluster of movies that by Hollywood definitions were not successful. They were flops. I was considered box-office poison but to me they were all successful and I don't feel any different about a success or failure. I don't know how to explain it, but by some miracle I have always been able to choose my characters for movies. Being able to get jobs throughout the 90s when, in the language of Hollywood, I was box-office poison should have been hard, yet I was able to do everything single film I wanted to do. To me, whether I'm playing Ed Wood
or Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
, all these movies have commercial potential. Pirates could have easily flopped. It's always a crap shoot."
