London: 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star Johnny Depp thinks there is something wrong with stars who get used to being famous, and says he is still dealing with his celebrity lifestyle.

The 48-year-old actor, who shot to fame on 1984 movie 'Nightmare on Elm Street', says he is very uncomfortable about being well known, according to reports.

"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," Depp said.

Depp, 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.

"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,” Depp said.

"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," he added.
