Johnny Depp isn’t someone you can just call up, even if you’re a close friend of his.

Access Hollywood’s Tony Potts caught up with the actor at the New York premiere of “The Tourist” on Monday, where Johnny explained how he maintains keeping a low profile.

“We have Internet and stuff like that because I think that’s the safest form, well, most interesting form of communication,” Johnny told Tony when asked about reports that he kept his house tech-free. “I just don’t like phones.”

“I just don’t like them… being reachable all the time,” the actor continued.

“How would I get a hold of you if I was your friend?” Tony asked.

“You’d have to you know to just buzz me on the Internet or something,” the 47-year-old explained.

One person who the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise star might take a call from is his dentist. Johnny was still sporting his Jack Sparrow teeth on the red carpet on Monday night.

“You still got the [‘Pirates’] teeth in, how long are they going to be in?” Tony asked.

“Just until I can find a dentist to rip them out, essentially,” he explained. “They sort of have to be yeah, yanked out… we just literally finished like, you know, last week.”

“The Tourist,” co-starring Angelina Jolie, hits theaters on Friday and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” is slated for the big screen in summer 2011.
