London: Johnny Depp has admitted that he is not too fond of public attention and rather feels more at home and ‘himself’ on set in front of a camera.

Depp says he does not like fans clicking his pictures all the time, whenever he is out in public.

“Outside in life people are looking and staring at you,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

“You see them taking your picture all the time with their iPhones. You become a kind of novelty in the world.”

“At some point, it became more honest for me on set.”

The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star feels that the outside world has become unnatural for him.

“I understand it – everything is defined. Here are the lights, here’s the scene I have to do.”

“It has become very natural, while the outside world has become unnatural.”

“It’s bizarre, because I’ve done interviews where there’s a camera on and I still feel uncomfortable. Yet if it’s a scene and I’m in character, then I’m not,” he added.
