Depp on Jolie: She's a 'shockingly great mother'

Johnny Depp says working with Angelina Jolie on his latest film taught him to think of her in a different way _ as a great mother.

Depp says he does not know how Jolie and husband Brad Pitt handle parenthood while juggling the distractions of being famous. He says Jolie is "a shockingly great mother" and remains calm despite all the paparazzi and pressures of fame.

Depp says he'd "probably be in prison" if he had to deal with as many kids.

Jolie and Pitt have six children. Depp has two with French actress Vanessa Paradis.

Depp was speaking at a Tokyo news conference Thursday to promote he and Jolie's film "The Tourist."
