Johnny Depp refuses to take his career too seriously - because it seems like only yesterday when he had to steal Mexican money from pal Nicolas Cage to survive.

The movie star was once forced to crash at Cage's Hollywood home, where he stole some spare pesos the actor had tossed in a drawer.

Depp recalls that he exchanged the foreign cash so he could afford to eat.

He says, "I come from that, so it's pretty hard for me to take any of this seriously."
