Johnny Depp will return to acting one day as he focuses on directing.

The 60-year-old actor - who DailyMail.com revealed has undergone a radical transformation including weight loss, haircut, and embracing 'clean living' - has not retired from his career as a thespian according to TMZ on Wednesday. 

Insiders for the publication claim that he is not done acting but his current passion is directing and he is happy doing that as he is currently at the helm of biopic Modi.
