Johnny Depp is an actor whose acute brilliance far surpasses that of most actors I have seen. His characterizations are amazingly different, and he brings out the quirks of each character not only with his delivery of lines, but also with his body movements and his facial expressions.
There is no doubt that Johnny Depp is one of the public's favorite people, and not just because he's attractive. (Although I did hear that there is a band by the name of 'Gay for Johnny Depp.')
We love him for many reasons; for instance, we love him for his commitment to his children and his partner, Vanessa Paradis. We love him for his personality quirks, his humor, and his innate sense of style (vintage is in). We love him for his performances, and his sheer humanity.
Many of these definitions read that he is 'perfection.' But this is not true. The reason we love him is because he is NOT perfection; he represents a greater package that transcends mere perfection, and that is a person who has the ability to have flaws, and still remain loveable on many levels.
Most of all, we love him (or I love him for this reason at least) for the mere fact that he came out of the Hollywood Machine unscathed.
Thanks to Johnny Depp for being himself! He's an inspiration!
Some of his movies:
-The Ninth Gate
-Chocolat (a little more mainstream)
-The Man Who Cried (not one of my favorites)
-Pirates 1, 2, 3 (very mainstream, good characterization though)
-Finding Neverland (somewhat mainstream)
-Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
...and many others that I would try to find but for the fact that I have no money.
-Sweeney Todd (I'm excited)
-The Rum Diary
