Biography

Johnny Depp spent a decade on the fringes of Hollywood as a favorite of independent directors like Tim Burton and Lasse Hallstrom, until his unbridled originality and penchant for extreme characterizations found a worldwide audience with "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" (2003). Throughout the 1990s the actor built a strong critical and art house following portraying societal outsiders - from the anatomic anomaly "Edward Scissorhands" (1990) to cross-dressing B-movie director "Ed Wood" (1994) to twitchy drug-addled journalist Hunter S. Thompson in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" (1998). He was so adept in disappearing into characters and accents that many had long ago forgotten that this respected "actor's actor" had initially gotten his start as a posterboy of both bad behavior - numerous real-life run-ins with the press and the occasional trashing of a hotel room - as well as good, getting his big break on the teenybopper favorite, "21 Jump Street" (Fox, 1987-1991). Depp's reputation as an "actor's actor" solidified with leads in mainstream films "Donnie Brasco" (1997) and "Blow" (2001), but when Disney cast him as Captain Jack Sparrow, the actor's characterization of the plundering pirate captivated international moviegoers and made box office history. While Depp remained loyal to the offbeat and fantastical films of Tim Burton, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise turned the edgy and inventive leading man into a reluctant superstar.

Bonus Trivia

.

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.

.

He was arrested in NYC in 1994 for allegedly trashing a hotel room (he agreed to pay for all repairs) and again in London in February 1999 for allegedly threatening photographers with a plank of wood.

.

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."

.

"One of the most incredible moments I've ever had was sitting in Vincent [Price]'s trailer and I was showing him this first-edition book I have of the complete works of Poe with really amazing illustrations. Vincent was going nuts over the drawings and he started talking about 'The Tomb of Ligeia' then he closed the book and began to recite it to me in this beautiful voice, filling the room with huge sounds. Such passion! I looked in the book later and it was verbatim. Word perfect. It was a great moment. I'll never forget that." – Depp quoted in Movieline, October 1994

.

" ...not a lot of people can say that they have been able to sit down at a table with Iggy Pop and Patricia Hearst and Polly Bergen and John Waters all at the same time." – Depp in Us, February 1994

.

"There's an element of Johnny that's extremely nice and extremely cool, but at the same time, he's hard to figure out. But that's what makes him interesting." – Leonardo DiCaprio on working with Depp in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" quoted in Premiere, February 1995

.

"His childhood informs who he is, but his choice of roles is where he wants to live as artist." – "Don Juan DeMarco" co-star Faye Dunaway quoted in Premiere, February 1995

.

"I CANNOT take this job seriously. There's nothing worse than those actors who give the impression they've taken on the priesthood. At the end of the day, acting is really about lying and, in my case, drinking coffee." – Depp as quoted by Liz Smith in her syndicated column, Feb. 17, 1999

.

Depp has recorded with the band Oasis and has a songwriting credit with Iggy Popp, 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 turd" rebuke from the musician, but the two later became friends.

.

"I had done a few films, like 'Platoon' with Oliver Stone, then came '21 Jump Street.' Suddenly, I was not an actor. I was a personality, a product. That was definitely not what I wanted. I told myself, 'When this TV thing is done, I will only do the things I find interesting and see how long I can do it.'""People say I make strange choices, but they're not strange for me. My sickness is that I'm fascinated by human behavior, by what's underneath the surface, by the worlds inside people." – Depp to USA Today, Nov. 29, 1999

.

"I used to go through the world, thinking I was seeing things clearly, but I was kind of stumbling and viewing events through a haze, like a gauze or something. Then the instant my baby was born, I looked at her and immediately, instantly, everything came into a sharp focus. I looked at her, this pure little angel, that I was just meeting for the first time, and I realized I had known her for 10,000 years. There will never be anyone that will know me better, that will understand me just by a look. I know I will never be closer to another human being. She hasn't changed my life, she's given me my life, in the sense that everything now has a reason. I used to think I was happy, that there were things in my life that would make me smile, but the biggest difference is that now I can feel my smile, it's all connected." – Depp on fatherhood, quoted in San Francisco's The Examiner, Nov. 22, 1999

.

"I know this sounds so f*cking stupid, but I can't help it, I just want to be normal. I mean, I got a strange job, yeah, [but] I'm a father, I've got a girl, I got a family, and I want to be normal, that's all, and I don't want to be looked at like some kind of freak. If you want to turn me into some kind of freak or animal in the zoo, the anger starts to rise in me. Immediately. I just don't like it.""Fame isn't something you figure out until you've swallowed a bit of it, till you've had that ramrodded down your gullet. Celebrity is a strange word. I can't think of myself in those terms. There's no way I walk 30 feet down the boulevard and someone doesn't say, 'Johnny Depp.' There is never that day. I don't have that day." – Depp quoted in Detour, December 1999-January 2000

.

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

.

"If you ever catch me saying 'I'm a serious actor', I beg you to come and smack me. I'm not a serious actor. Just an actor." – Depp quoted in London's Evening Standard, Dec. 30, 1999

.

"In some sense there is a monofilament running through the guys I've played. They are outsiders. They're people that society says aren't normal, and I think you have to stand up for people like that." – Depp quoted in the London Times, Feb. 7, 2002

.

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.

.

"It's my job, you know. I go and I act in movies. When they say, 'Hey you're done' on a movie, at that point my job is done and the rest is none of my business. So it always feels uncomfortable to go out and talk about your self." – Depp in Premiere magazine, May 2004

.

Depp was named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People for 2004.

.

"I did feel like an outsider. I felt completely and utterly confused by everything that was going on around me. It was the one thing that the teachers didn't want you to do in school, you know, question things. But I always wanted to know why. It was 'Well, you should do this and you shouldn't do that...' 'Oh okay, why not?' It really pissed them off, but it shouldn't piss them off because it's a fucking valid question. It's the only question." – Depp on feeling like an outsider growing up, to Empire, August, 2005

.

"I've always considered myself very lucky to still be getting jobs after all the weirdness I've put people through in terms of having to watch my films." – Depp to People, Sept. 13, 2005

.

"Part of the process that I've always enjoyed is being the observer. You know, just watching people and learning. At a certain point, the reversal took place. I was no longer the observer – I was being observed. That's obviously very dangerous because part of an actor's job is to observe." – Depp to Esquire, January 2008

.

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 will be honored as a Fashion Icon for "personal and eclectic sense of style;" he is 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 is hailed for his "personal and eclectic sense of style" at the Cfda Fashion Awards this 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."
