Johnny is a down to earth guy who just has the balls to pick what ever roles he wants to play and has the courage to walk away from the alluring amount of money that contracts bring, he just doesn't want to be a 'product'. He is a great person all in all.

His talent :) he's so amazing and weird. He's different. He doesn't "go with the flow" and he personalizes all his movie characters... Now THAT'S a talented actor.

I like johnny depp of course because of his looks but also because of his unconventional way of choosing his roles. He is into the character of the role.

The role i liked was one he played in the movie From Hell of an inspector.I just admire him &wish to just meet him once in my lifetime.

Johnny Depp says that when playing a role you must become that role, or it wouldn't be acting. It would be lying. I love him for that.

I love Jdepp for his looks & character, I haven't met him. [i wish i could]

On my license plate reads <3jdepp. Call me obessed. [it's a johnny thing] you wouldn't understand ;)

(I think the best role jdepp ever played was the Gonzo Journalist: Hunter S. Thompson in Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas. It's a must-see!)

(a new Hunter Thompson book is being made into a film! The Rum Diary. I cannot waittt!!!)))

<3 jdepp

& i could never forget axl rose <3

Hi Leslie,

Without having him as a personal friend, it would be hard to say what he is really like;however, I believe you can learn much about Depp from the way he chooses to live, from his actions, and from the choices he makes. A true measure of most people is shown in their actions, wouldn't you agree?

People admire Depp because he chooses unconventional roles. That takes guts. And he executes those roles in such an understated yet skilled manner.

Leslie 7 years ago

You know, no one really knows that much about who Johnny Depp really IS... I mean, anyne can go and ask him questions or post him on the internet saying that they know him... But who really DOES? Just because you know his first and last name and the movies he has played in doesn't mean that you really know him. I like to think of Johnny as a mystery to be solved... He's nice and very good looking, but what is he really LIKE? What are your views on this?

Yes, I think that's why people admire him, because he doesn't go with the flow but is a maverick. He pushes the boundaries and is true to himself.

Anyone can look at him and instantly say they like him, but to respect him as an actor is something people don't often do anymore simply because they only care about looks. What I like about Johnny is that he chooses roles based on what effect they have on him as a person. Acting is an art form, and he's the only actor in a long time that can remind (some) people of that.
