London: Hollywood star Josh Brolin respects his friendship with Johnny Depp because he thinks the `Pirates Of The Caribbean` star is a self-made actor who is loaded with talent to give power house performances.
The W star and Depp almost fell out when both were up for a lead role on TV show 21 Jump Street in the mid 1980s - a part Depp eventually landed.
But the two actors have remained friends and Brolin could not be happier for his pal`s success.
"I have more respect for that guy than for most people out there because he... has done it his own way," the Daily Star quoted Brolin as telling Playboy magazine.
"He`s found whatever his niche is, and it`s a big one. What a f**king talent, man. Every movie I watch him in, I just thank God he exists," he added.
