Johnny enjoys work on family films

Johnny Depp wants to star in more family films so his children can watch his movies.

The actor - who has two young children, Lily-Rose and Jack, with partner Vanessa Paradis - has recently starred in a string of children's films, including Finding Neverland and Pirates of the Caribbean.

While the 41-year-old star insisted he won't be turning his back on adult roles for good, he admits he is thrilled his children can now watch more of his movies.

He said: "Finding Neverland was great because it was much more accessible to my kids than, say, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. I want my children to see daddy's work."

Depp's next movie is a re-make of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, directed by Tim Burton, and the heartthrob is confident movie-goers will be impressed reports Femalefirst quoting Empire ma

He said: "Tim's version will be much truer to the Roald Dahl book. It's darker."
