Johnny Depp has hit out at reality TV and fears the genre, and it's talentless stars will take over our screens in 20 years.

Johnny Depp hates reality shows.

The 50-year-old actor is terrified of the modern world's obsession with material goods and reality star icons, and believes the shallow craze will be the downfall of society in a few years' time.

He mused to Interview magazine: ''It's really frightening. And when you see all this stuff that goes on in the commercials - the endless commercials - people yelling down your gob, 'Buy this, do this, this will save you, this will fix you.'

''Everything can be a reality show now. Imagine what's it going to be in 20 f***ing years, man.''

Johnny - who is engaged to Amber Heard and has children Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11, with former partner Vanessa Paradis - also went on to apparently slam stars like the Kardashians and Paris Hilton by lamenting that talentless socialites have become idols to a whole generation thanks to the phenomenon that is reality TV.

The 'Rum Diary' star added: ''People get famous now for I-don't-know-what. People have reality shows because they're a Hollywood socialite, and these things become very successful and they generate a s**tload of money for the company.

''And it's multiplying, to where you're literally looking into your next door neighbour's bathroom with reckless abandon. It is like watching a fire. You can't take your eyes off of it.''
