Johnny Depp thinks there is "something wrong" with people who get used to being famous.

The 48-year-old actor - who shot to fame on 1984 movie 'Nightmare On Elm Street' - is still "dealing" with his celebrity lifestyle and feels "very uncomfortable" about being well known.

He said: "I'm still sort of dealing with it. I don't think it's anything you ever get used to ... for many years I could never sort of put my name in the same sort of category as the word "famous" or anything like that.

"And I just found it very uncomfortable ... if you get used to it, then something must be wrong ... There's got to be still a part of you that - somewhere in there that pines for anonymity."

The 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' star - who has two children, Lily-Rose, 12, and nine-year-old Jack with long-term partner Vanessa Paradis - is hoping his kids will appreciate him as a father rather than a "novelty" actor.

In an interview airing on CNN tomorrow (22.10.11), he told Larry King: "I don't want my kids to experience me as a novelty. I want my kids to know me as dad, you know. And already, you know, if they have access to the internet or whatever, I mean they understand what The Deal is. But I don't want them to have to live through and experience that kind of attack.

"I don't go out very much. I stay at home a lot. Or when you go out to eat, you know, you've got to - it becomes a strategic sort of plan.

"I do realise and understand very well on a profound level how lucky I am and what a privileged position it is and what it's done ultimately for me, my family and my kids. But at the same time there are moments in a man's life when you just kind of want to feel somewhat normal."
