Speaking to BBC Breakfast while promoting his latest film The Lone Ranger, the 50-year-old icon said he has contemplated trading in the silver screen for a "quieter" existence.
Depp revealed: "At a certain point you start thinking, and when you add up the amount of dialogue that you say per year, for example, you realise that you've said written words more than you've actually had a chance to say your own words.
"You start thinking of that as a kind of insane option for a human being."
The star continued: "I wouldn't say that I'm dropping out any second, but I would say it's probably not too far away."
Depp has brought a wide variety of characters to life on the big screen during his long career, including iconic roles as Edward Scissorhands and Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean films.
The Lone Ranger hits UK cinemas on August 9.
