Actor Johnny Depp has revealed his new philosphy in life, career and acting, according to Vanity Fair.

The "Into the Woods" star has shared how he learned to stop caring about how his movies fare in the box office in an interview with Details magazine.

Depp said he has learned to follow the late actor Marlon Brando's way of dealing with life and claimed it has helped him immensely.

"As Marlon once so beautifully f*****g said to me, life is a birdsong. That's stuck with me," the "Mortdecai" actor said. "What is really satisfying is, like Marlon, getting to that place where he just didn't give a f**k."

He then recalled how he used to be worked up about the trappings of an acting career and get affected when producers expect his movies to always be hits. "First, I reached a point where I cared so much and was so diligent in terms of approaching the work," he shared.

"Then you get to where you care so f*****g much that it gets goddamn beleaguering, you know?," he continued. "But then a great thing happens. Suddenly you care enough to not give a f**k, because not giving a f**k, that's the total liberation. Being game to try anything."

Depp also shared how he appreciates the process of making films but abhors going to events to promote them, according to Entertainment Tonight.

"The process I love. The other stuff ... I can deal with being a fugitive for a bit, but I don't know how much longer a human being really wants to be that," Depp said. "Actors essentially have to peddle their a** to sell the movie. All the occupational hazards of the thing."

He added, "At a certain point, one has to dig deep and go, 'Man, it is a birdsong.'"
