Acting in Hollywood movies looks undoubtedly like the most glamorous job in the world.

Make up artists, fabulous costumes and famous co-stars...but then there comes learning your lines, and if you're the star of a blockbuster film this could take a while!

It was also claimed by TMG that "Depp insisted that this sound engineer be kept on yearly retainer so that he no longer had to memorise his lines."

Is this a clever way to get around the most arduous part of acting jobs or is he just plain lazy? We wonder who else in Hollywood is trying this trick!
