Before he began getting acting jobs, Depp supported himself by selling ballpoint pens by phone in Los Angeles.
Depp did not originate the role of Officer Tom Hanson on "21 Jump Street." On the series' pilot, the role was played by Jeff Yagher.
Depp was arrested in New York City in 1994 for allegedly trashing a hotel room. Charges were dismissed after he agreed to pay for all repairs.
Depp reportedly turned down the roles of Lestat in "Interview With the Vampire," Jack (the Keanu Reeves role) in "Speed" and Brad Pitt's role in "Legends of the Fall." He told Kevin Sessums in Vanity Fair February 1997: "I'm not 'Blockbuster Boy'. I never wanted to be. I mean, it would be nice to get a sh*tpile of money so you can throw it at your family and friends. I just don't know if movies can ever be considered art, because there's so much money involved."
The first home Depp purchased in Los Angeles, in 1995, had previously been owned by Bela Lugosi.
Depp recorded with the band Oasis and had a songwriting credit with Iggy Pop, whom he first met at the age of 17 when his band (The Kids) opened for Pop in Florida. At that time, Depp's obnoxious behavior earned a "You little t*rd" rebuke from the musician, but the two later became friends.
About allegedly attacking a group of paparazzi with a piece of wood: "They wanted a photograph of me and my pregnant girlfriend. And that angered me, that they would take something so sacred and try to turn it into a product." He asked them, like a gentleman, to go away. "And they said no, 'We'll be here waiting for you.'"Depp snapped. He grabbed the wood, rapped one photographer in the knuckles, and told them, "'Now take the picture. I'm f*cking begging you. Because the first flash I see, the guy is gonna be the recipient of this.' Six guys. Nobody took one picture. The beauty, the poetry of the fear in their eyes, in these filthy maggots' faces, was so worth it. I didn't mind going to jail for, what, five or six hours? It was absolutely worth it." – from Premiere, December 1999
People Magazine named Johnny Depp the "Sexiest Man Alive" for 2003.
E! named Johnny Depp as their pick for entertainer of the year for 2003.
Depp was named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People for 2004.
During an interview with reporter Nick Tosches for the November 2011 issue of Vanity Fair magazine, Depp compared doing photo shoots to a violent sexual attack. "You just feel like you're being raped somehow," Depp said. "Raped...It feels like a kind of weird – just weird, man." The actor quickly issued an apology for his comment: "I am truly sorry for offending anyone in any way. I never meant to. It was a poor choice of words on my part in an effort to explain a feeling. I understand there is no comparison and I am very regretful. In an effort to correct my lack of judgment, please accept my heartfelt apology."
In March 2012, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) announced Depp would be honored as a Fashion Icon for "personal and eclectic sense of style;" he was the first male to receive the honor. The Pirates of the Caribbean hunk will become the first male to pick up the accolade when he was hailed for his "personal and eclectic sense of style" at the CFDA Fashion Awards that summer.
Depp was adopted by the Comanche Nation on May 16, 2012 at the Albuquerque, NM home of LaDonna Harris, president and founder of Americans for Indian Opportunity. The actor was also given the Comanche name pronounced "Mah Woo May," meaning "shape shifter."
According to director Rob Marshall, Depp based his performance as The Wolf in "Into the Woods" on a zoot-suited hipster wolf who appeared in several 1940s cartoons by Tex Avery.
In 2015, Depp and wife Amber Heard were involved in an international incident when the couple were accused by Australia's Minister of Agriculture, Barnaby Joyce, of bringing their two teacup Yorkshire terriers into the country without the proper paperwork. After the dogs were threatened with euthanasia, they were returned to the U.S. without incident. On September 11, Depp explained on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," ""We were under the impression that we had all the paperwork done with the dogs. We were there with the dogs in front of everybody." He then joked, "There might have been other things smuggled."
