Monday, May 9, 2011

Johnny Depp is more than just a good looking actor. He also is a good director and a very talented musician. His real name is John Christopher Depp, Jr. and was born in Kentucky. He admits that as a kid, he was very withdrawn and is considered as odd doing always weird things all the time.

He started at 16 as a member of a garage band from when he also dropped out of high school. He was 21 when he was first introduced to Nicolas Cage who introduced the young actor to a Hollywood agent. He then became an overnight teen idol for the hit TV series 21 Jump Street and became very memorable by landing the title role in the Tim Burton classic Edward Scissorhands.

From then on, Depp did not stop making hit movies in the likings of Don Juan DeMarco, Donnie Brasco, Sleepy Hallow, Once Upon A Time In Mexico, and a lot more. He was a sure fire hit for the role of Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean and each of its every film sequel. He worked with Tim Burton once again for films like Sweeney Todd and Alice in Wonderland.

Johnny Depp has a total of 13 tattoos which includes his very popular tattoo called Winona Forever which he altered to Wino Forever when he broke up with Winona Ryder.
