Johnny Depp Sexy?

Is Johnny Depp Sexy?

When I found out Johnny Depp was named "Sexiest Man Alive" in People Magazine I was a bit confused. Now, most women would say "What?" "How can you be confused?" "Johnny Depp is the sexiest man in the world! EXCEPT for my friends who have entered their mid-forties. I will explain in a while, so please be patient. If you are a man reading this, it may not interest you but you may get a kick out of it.

A few of my friends (me included) were a bit "disappointed" that Rob Pattinson from the Twilight Saga did not get the title. Now, this my friends is the reason for this hub! Now I must admit that Johnny Depp is a very handsome and talented actor and I spent a lot of time with him when we were younger. At the beginning of his career and his first television show hysteria, I spent a lot of time hanging out and getting to know him as he slowly embarked on his movie career. I knew exactly what kind of person he was and the "Hollywood Machine" has printed a very different picture now that he is a mega star. You may say "well that was a long time ago and he has grown up." That is the point, "he has grown up!" Now to me at this time of my life, that is NOT that sexy! I hope this made you laugh a bit. Most of the time we hung out in the old days, we were in strip clubs, playing music and eating out at very expensive places with Johnny doing very crude things that I can not even mention here. I will never forget us sitting down and going through his fan mail full of young naked girl pictures and him grabbing some sushi as we giggled. This was before the internet was SO much of EVERYTHING folks. Could you imagine where these photos could have ended up? Some of the girls were really young (ages ten to thirteen) and I wondered if their parents knew. Terrifying!

At one point we were having dinner at a mansion in the middle of nowhere, he whispered to me and asked me to remove my shoes. I told him "hell no!" Now my point is, if he was "The Sexiest Man In The World" I would have removed my shoes even though I was married at the time! Afterall does the title not make women go absolutely "crazy" and lose all their marbles in their brain? You would think that "Sexiest Man Alive" would mean that every women who voted must go completely CRAZY at the thought of him. I never did and I often wonder "why?" You may say "well you were married." Well I will say that I was only twenty four, married way too young and not in the healthiest relationship. Besides, this was Hollywood folks! Even then people were always screwing around and no one I knew had any morals. The main reason why I kept it under control was my strong "self control" and my avoidance of substances that could make me make the wrong choices. I did not even have my first drink til I was twenty one and I hated it. Even now I rarely have a glass of wine and if I do, I'm bored out of my mind!

Now this is where it gets funny. I remember the time that his adorable and loving mother told me that her son was not good with women. There were times that I met his girlfriends eventually (some were famous, some were not) and they came and went and they all looked the same. At the age of twenty four, I was pretty in touch with my sexuality and a very "young" and fantastic flirt. I was extremely good at it and this made my husband angry, but he was understanding and would always say "If I was a woman, I would want to do him to." So be it the relationship continued for quite a long time. When Johnny came to me once to ask if he could have permission to take my husband out for "boys night," he fluttered his big brown eyes until I said "Yes." He also said something else, but we will keep this G rated.

The point is that I always felt Johnny was handsome and he did have a sort of presence, but he never did it for me. He does not do it for me now either, so this now leads me to the reason for this hub! Johnny Depp is in his forties and Robert Pattinson is only twenty three! So, this I believe makes me just as bad as an older man who dates younger women! I have even gawked at this when I have seen various couples (especially in Malibu) with a huge age difference. I have often been disgusted at the thought that a distinguished older man would go for such a young bimbo! A lot of my friends are even having a hard time finding men that are close to their age because most of them are dating younger women! In fact a lot of women who are nearing fifty are now dating men who are way into their sixties or seventies and this STILL makes them the "younger woman!" You see this all of the time in California especially in the Hollywood crowd.

All kidding aside, this has been a very funny experience! I'm going to list a few reasons why I did and do not think Johnny was sexy and why I think Mr. Patterson IS to give you a giggle. Some men may not find this funny and may think that I'm a woman in her forties with a midlife crisis. But to tell you the truth, I am really happy with my marriage and family. So, let's have some fun!

First of all Johnny did not have the best personal habits and they turned me off immediately. One of the first turn offs was his dirty hotel room and his lack for cleaning laundry or vacuuming. He did not like to shower that much either and wore the same dirty clothes all of the time. NOT SEXY. His refrigerator was full of chocolate milk (only drank one brand) and no food at all. In fact he never ate at home and it always smelled really bad from his chain smoking habit. NOT very sexy. Ok, we have heard the rumors about Mr. Pattinson "stinking" to, so they are sort of "even" on that subject. Of course I have not been to Rob's hotel room to check it out, thank goodness!

Physically Johnny was really scrawny and had no muscles and hardly ever exercised. He used to layer a lot of his clothes to look bigger then he was and this is not what I find attractive. Rob Pattinson looks "healthy" and ripped and he seems really intelligent and well read. Maybe it is the British thing too, but the point is that he comes across a lot more intelligent then Johnny did in the old days and this is very attractive to me. I do think that Rob Pattinson is a lot better looking and he has beautiful eyes and just grabs you in the film Twilight. As Johnny got a bit older he became more dynamic on screen but he still never made me go "He is hot!" Some women would think that I'm absolutely nuts!

So, the point is "to each his own" and everyone likes different things. This is the annoying point I'm trying to get across. Who the hell voted for this? Did I get to put my Rob Pattinson vote in? No!!! This has not been a fair race because I don't read People Magazine on-line?

Oh by the way, the new movie "New Moon" the second book in the Twilight saga is out now! I will wait and rent it because I do not feel like sitting with a bunch of screaming teenage girls like I did when I hung with Johnny many years ago. I may have flashbacks of hookers chasing us on a busy street in another country! REALLY annoying. Ok, I'm finally showing my age! Bah humbug! ha

ha ha ha Zsuzsy Bee! SO, shall we say that you are "Team Depp?" and I am "Team Pattinson?" Remember the big press thing on "Team Jolie" or "Team Aniston?"

THAT was hilarious! ha

I LOVED that you used the word "old broad." VERY funny! Thanks for stopping in!

G,This may seem harsh, but why are they (who?) always picking actors. Is it the "man" or the "character" that is being chosen.... As you point out (sorry) the "man" may not have won, if only they (again?)had known... I liked it, ha, ha. JM

Isn't it just great to know a celebrity inside out before they get noticed by the world. I always like the feeling of knowing what many don't know about the 'rave of the moment' guys.

Enjoyed this G.

viryabo! That is the point of this hub (sorta). Like "what" makes someone the sexiest man in the world?" I have met a lot of sexy men, but after spending a long time with them, quite a few fell "short." ha Celebrities pay Public Relations people as much as $15,000 a month (the top guys) to make them look GOOD. THESE people are the one's that make their "image" in the press. It was fun to be there in the beginning of his career. There is a lot more "dark" stuff in Mr. Depp. BUT, thought I would just hit "one point" about his lack of cleanliness to be fair. CLEAN and intelligent is sexy!!!!!! ha Ofcourse maybe he has changed his habits now! I hope so! ; Best, G

Johnny Depp is a really versatile actor. As a cartoon, I feel I must disqualify myself as a judge of sexiness. I think Sponge Bob is pretty hot, m'self.

Depp may not care about vacuuming, but I'm sure he's got that covered now. His talent makes him sexy.

Here I am! I gotta tell you, I have never thought the word "Sexy" should be applied to men at all. I think it is a feminine word. "She's sexy" is a natural thing to say. "He's sexy?" I don't think so. He's handsome, maybe. He's manly, He's virile, He's debonair, He's suave. She's pretty, She's beautiful, She's gorgeous, She's sexy. Now we're talking.

Depp is, to me, a great actor. I've been a fan since Gilbert Grape. The other guy? I've never heard of him. I've heard of (the book and) the movie but I've never seen it. All I know is it is about vampires and young kids are crazy about it.

But I do love your Hub and I think YOU are sexy. But not the sexiest man, thank goodness.

JAMES! Always great to see you here! You are right about the word "sexy!"

I like "handsome," "gorgeous" and "debonair" for a man. I think the whole thing about "voting" for someone is sooooo silly!!!!!!! The point is, how can one really know without spending time with this person? That is in the real world, NOT Hollywood!!!!.....ANYWAY, thank you for the nice compliment and I do think you are "Handsome and Debonair!" You are REALLY "smart" to. A MAJOR "HOT point!" Oh no.....DID I SAY "HOT?" OR is that word just for food? ha ha ha ha

After seeing the cover at the store the other week, I thought the exact same thing!

Sexy - YES Sexiest- No Very Talented - YES I am in my 40's and sexy to me is a combination of maturity, intelligence, personality, talent and a natural distiguished look, maybe a nice smile and great eyes, a sexy voice. I guess I want it all :)enjoyed the hub.

Ellen....glad you enjoyed the hub! I do agree with your "check list!" ha

I doubt any of us find people we know the sexiest. Our love with celebrity is fantasy. How do you know you would still find R.P. sexy if you knew him? That being said everyone I know finds Mr. Depp very sexy. My girlfriends and I get together and talk about how watching his movies makes melt, (I,d say more but lets keep this g-rated). My grandmother even thinks hes sexy!As far as Mr. Patterson I haven't met anyone yet who finds him attractive or talented.

I'm always up for hearing opinions from others! It is really up to the individual and their likes and dislikes. Maybe it is the accent? Who knows? I like what I like!!!!!! Thanks for your comment. Best, GPAGE

You are the funny one! The part about waiting to see the new twilight movie reminds me of the time I went to a Britney Spears pre-show meet& greet I felt kinda dirty being there with all these screaming little girls, and their younger than me, moms. I soldiered through and got my Autographed picture, because she has nice... Botox!

I love Johnny Depp! Even now when he is crossing the age line, he is still one of the most handsome men in Hollywood!

I was on Team Depp all the way until I saw him in 'Fear and Loathing'. 'Alice in Wonderland' didn't really do anything for me either but everything else I have seen him in... wow! It is probably because he is allowed to portray a lot of himself (if it is the real him) into his movies now - such as with Tim Burton. I have just ordered a Team Edward (Scissorhands) t-shirt online though haha :D

Laura....When I knew Johnny, he was not who he is now. He is much more confident and funny now. BUT I also know how he was "way back when." He learned a lot from "key talent" and people he worked with and knew that will never get the credit for making Johnny who he is today. BUT all great talent takes stuff from other great talent. This is just the way things go in Hollywood.... I never watch any of his films cause I guess I was associated with him for so many years, I just was not interested. I kind of knew his deal and how he was as a person. So never wanted to see more....BUT I'm really happy for his success.....

Thanks for stopping by here.....GPAGE

Very interesting article. It is great to see a refreshing and honest perspective. Like many people, Johnny Depp had to arrive at his current stage of life by going through other significantly different stages of metamorphosis to become who he is today. Even now, there still exists traces of those quirks, but you would not know it unless you were close to him and lived it behind the scenes. This is a great article. I find it very endearing. Thanks for sharing!!

Latasha. Thank you for your very nice comment. I'm glad you enjoyed my article. What you said is true...about people going through different stages of metamorphosis throughout their lives. It is all part of who we are and who we become. It is so nice to see you here! Best, GPAGE

The reason Johnny is rated as the sexiest man alive and not robert pattison is maybe because masculinity comes with age? The reason older man date young woman is because young woman are much more feminine and beautiful than older one.
