Obsession ~ Johnny Depp

Updated on July 10, 2008

John Christopher Depp was born on June 9, 1963 in a small town called Owensburg, Kentucky. It was on this fateful day that the world was given one of the greatest American Actors of all time. Johnny Depp.

There is no denying that Johnny Depp brings both a charismatic and brilliant portrayal to any film that bears his well-known and much loved name. The mystery lies in his uncanny knack for picking the perfect characters to bring to life, and into the most perfect films. Characters such as Willy Wonka and Captain Jack Sparrow have brought this actor not only fame and fortune, but have given him a certain appeal and following that many other actors wish to aspire to. His comedic ability seems to be innate and flows easily. He is one of those few actors that is incredibly well liked by both men and women. Even in his more serious dramatic roles, as in "Finding Neverland" and "Secret Window", he brings a low-key vulnerable innocence that quietly takes hold of your soul, only to leave you begging for more. His versatility and ability to reel the viewers in, is bar none, descriptive of an actor on top of his game.

If we begin to describe this man's sensual appeal to women of all ages, we may have to take on a hub of much greater magnitude. So, I'll leave you with these beautiful photos and sincere quotes, just to give you an idea of what an incredibly gifted and sexy man Johnny Depp truly is.

“I think the thing to do is to enjoy the ride while you're on it.”

“There's a drive in me that won't allow me to do certain things that are easy.”

“Life's pretty good, and why wouldn't it be? I'm a pirate, after all.”

“I would do anything Tim [Burton] wanted me to. You know - have sex with an aardvark... I would do it.”

“With any part you play, there is a certain amount of yourself in it. There has to be, otherwise it's just not acting. It's lying.”

“Me, I'm dishonest, and you can always trust a dishonest man to be dishonest. Honestly, it's the honest ones you have to watch out for...'”

"If there's any message to my work, it is ultimately that it's OK to be different, that it's good to be different, that we should question ourselves before we pass judgment on someone who looks different, behaves different, talks different, is a different color."

"They stick you with those names, those labels -- ‘rebel' or whatever; whatever they like to use. Because they need a label; they need a name. They need something to put the price tag on the back of.""

“My body is my journal,and my tattoos are my story”

“It's all kinds of these profound things crashing on you when your child arrives into the world. It's like you've met your reason to live.”

"As a teenager I was so insecure. I was the type of guy that never fitted in because he never dared to choose. I was convinced I had absolutely no talent at all. For nothing. And that thought took away all my ambition too."

“I pretty much try to stay in a constant state of confusion just because of the expression it leaves on my face.”

"...What I like does tend to be left-field. I feel somehow much more comfortable playing it. I relate more easily than I do when I run across straight roles. I hate the obvious stuff, I just don't respond to it."

“I'm shy, paranoid, whatever word you want to use. I hate fame. I've done everything I can to avoid it.”
