Johnny Depp says owning an island in the Caribbean is more than just a luxury — it’s a necessity.


“The island might sound extravagant but I need somewhere I can breathe easily or just sit around and chat without someone taking my picture,” he tells Red Bulletin magazine. It also helps him avoid the gadgets that have become so popular in the rest of the world.


“Sometimes I’d like to run away screaming from our technology-obsessed world, the invasive media, the madness of reality TV,” he says. “We’ve lost touch with the simple things of life. We’re losing our individuality.”
