Johnny Depp Opens Up About Turning 50: "It's Great!"

It's hard to believe, but Johnny Depp turned 50 on June 9.

"It's great," Depp told me about the big milestone yesterday while promoting The Lone Ranger at the Bishops Lodge resort in Santa Fe, N.M. "I mean, I think any day you wake up and you're still around is a good thing. Every time you could take a breath and exhale and inhale again, it's a good thing."

He added with a smile, "50 is, like, 'Sure! Why not?'"

He's certainly not letting 50 slow him down one bit. Wait till you get a look at all the crazy dangerous stunt work he did for The Lone Ranger (in theaters July 3). In the movie, he plays Tonto to Armie Hammer's Lone Ranger, and Depp was almost trampled by a horse while making the big budget action flick.

"It was a weird one," he said of the accident. "Amazingly, I got up and walked away from it with just a few scratches."

Thank goodness.
