(showbizspy.com ) - 'Pirates of The Caribbean' star Johnny Depp a has revealed he considered quitting Hollywood after his daughter, Lily-Rose, fell ill earlier this year.
Lily-Rose, 8, was hospitalised after contracting the E.coli bacterial infection earlier this year, but Depp, 44 insists nothing matters more to him than his family.
Johnny, who also has a five-year-old son with Vanessa Paradis, said: "I wasn't sure if I would be able to come back. My kids and my girl - nothing else matters in life. My kids are very grounded, not monster-like at all. We keep discipline under control.
"When I was younger I used to play a lot of practical jokes and I pissed my mother off. But the greatest advice I ever got was from her, 'Don't take shit from anybody. Ever.' And that has stuck with me and I hope my kids never, ever have to take shit off anybody either."
Johnny, who was forced to postpone filming of new musical 'Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street' when Lily-Rose fell ill, also revealed he was nervous about his singing scenes in the movie.
He is quoted as saying: "I think I was probably more frightened than anyone. I've never even tried karaoke. It scares the hell out of me. I've never been that drunk - and I've been drunk. I didn't know if I could sing. I did these demos in my friend's garage studio because I didn't know if I could hit a note and to be honest I really didn't. I tried to use Iggy Pop as my inspiration.
"Someone is probably weeping after watching my performance."
