Johnny Depp has claimed that he's not fussed over how much money his latest film 'The Rum Diary' makes because he believes that the film is good and will be watched over the years.

After the flick was panned in the U.S. and dubbed the worst movie of the actor's career, the 48-year-old has said that he has faith in it regardless of the cash he makes.

Talking about the movie, in which he plays gonzo journalist Hunter S Thompson, Depp told The Guardian: "I believe in this film, regardless of what it makes in, you know, Wichita, Kansas, this week - which is probably about $13 - it doesn't make any difference."

He also added: "I believe that this film will have a shelf life. I think it will stick around and people will watch it and enjoy it."

Taking a stab at the U.S. audience, Depp reckons that the film will perform better in Europe because it's a deep film.

"It's something that will be appreciated more here, I think. Coz it's well, I think it's an intelligient film," he said.

"And a lot of times, outside the big cities in the States, they don't want that."

Adding credit to his choice of film, Depp also stated: "If you have (money) in your head while you're making a movie the process would become something very different."

'The Rum Diary' will be in cinemas on November 11.
