Actor Johnny Depp compares his Hollywood career to a "child's job", because he has such a fun time shooting films.

The critically acclaimed Edward Scissorhands actor accepts he's fallen into an industry which offers him excitement on a daily basis, in contrast to the mundane jobs most people have to undertake to make a living.

He says, "It's kind of a child's job, being an actor. It's play, it's a fun time to some degree. It's a great job, being irresponsibly responsible.

"It's how I make my living, but I've also used it as an avenue towards another education. You do research on these (roles), and you get to learn so much."
