Washington: Johnny Depp has branded himself a failure after watching Clark Gable in 'Gone With The Wind' because it made him realize that his career pales into insignificance compared to those of vintage screen stars.  

Therefore, despite winning an Oscar nomination for his  role of Jack Sparrow in 'Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl' this year, Depp deems his career to be a series of disasters and failures.  

"If anything, mine has been a career of failures. I think I'm getting all this attention right now because people feel sorry for me. I'm an underdog. Other actors look at me and think, 'That poor b**tard is still hacking away at it," TeenHollywood quoted Depp as saying.  

Depp's conception of a real movie star came after watching the 1939 classic blockbuster 'Gone With The Wind'. "When it was over, I remember saying to myself, 'Boy, that Clark Gable is a real movie star," said Depp. ANI
