Johnny Depp is opening up his 45-acre private Bahamian island, Little Hall's Pond Cay, to Vanity Fair magazine. "I don't think I'd ever seen any place so pure and beautiful," Depp tells the magazine. "You can feel your pulse rate drop about 20 beats. It's instant freedom. And that rare beast – simplicity – can be had. And a little morsel of anonymity…. Whenever I was getting frustrated about being 'novelty boy' and making movies, I told myself, Calm down. I can come down here and disappear. I spent the Christmas season here with [girlfriend] Vanessa [Paradis] and the kids." (Photo: WENN)
