The actor is often seen puffing away

Johnny Depp has quipped that he smokes 1,000 cigarettes per day.

The actor, 50, joked about his nicotine habit while being interviewed by singer Iggy Pop for a magazine feature, who asked how many fags he gets through every 24 hours.

‘I’ll bet a thousand,’ Johnny told Interview.

‘I’m working my way up to ten thousand.’

Johnny‘s comment comes a day after he made an admission about something else rather odd – wearing a woman’s engagement ring.

The dad-of-two was rumoured to have proposed to girlfriend Amber Heard, 27, in January after she was snapped with a huge diamond sparkler on her left hand. 

The pair had kept quiet on their reported happy news but Johnny was snapped sporting a rock in Beijing yesterday, reportedly because it’s ‘too big for Amber‘.

When asked about his marital status, Johnny – who’s in China promoting his new film Transcendence – pretty much confirmed that he did get down on one knee.

‘The fact that I’m wearing a chick’s ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway,’ said Johnny.

‘Not very subtle.’
