( FF ) - Johnny Depp is tired of living life in the fast lane.
The Golden Globe-winning actor, who was famed for his wild partying in the mid 90s, has given up driving fast cars and now lives "calmly" in France with partner Vanessa Paradis and their two children.
Johnny said: "I've have always liked speed - now I like comfort. We all go through stages of wanting fast cars and bikes. I was no different. Who wouldn't want a Maserati? But I also wanted to ride in style, or with a bit of history. To get there and to enjoy the journey.

"I have learnt to grow up and still enjoy myself. I spent a lot of years living on the edge - everyone knows that. So it is good that I now live calmly and happily."
The 44-year-old star, who spent his childhood moving around with his mother, also revealed he now finally feels settled.
Johnny said: "I have never felt more rooted anywhere. I have never been in one place, like this, where I do feel completely at home. Los Angeles was my home from the early 80s to the late 90s but it still felt so transient compared to this."
