Johnny Depp's

Johnny Depp wants a "beer belly".

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star - who first appeared on the big screen around 25 years ago in horror classic 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' - daydreams about eating and drinking whatever he likes when he eventually retires from movies.

He said: "I just want to become a traditional old man with a beer belly. I'd like to be sitting on the veranda of our place in France, just staring out over the lawns."

However, the 45-year-old actor seems to be one of the few celebrities desperate to expand his stomach.

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin recently admitted he lives in fear of "Belly Day".

He said: "I feel like you've got to write as many songs as you can between the ages of 28 and 33 because those are your last few years before you get a belly.

"I couldn't possibly write a hit record when I've got a beer belly, so we're just going to try to write as many songs as possible before that D-Day, or B-Day it should be - for Belly Day!"
