One of the greatest actors in the history of film, Mr. Depp conveys his characters with so much feeling that it's hard to distinguish between fiction and reality. He first made his acting debut in 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' and went on to have the starring role in '21 Jump Street' which turned him into a 'pretty-boy teen idol'. Hating the label the show gave him, he moved on to bigger and better things and was soon participating in films such as 'Edward Scissorhands', 'Cry Baby', 'Ed Wood', 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape' and, most recently, 'Pirates of the Caribbean', 'Chocolat', 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' and 'Finding Neverland'.
As well as acting, he has directed a film named 'The Brave' which he also starred in along with Marlon Brando, and has his own production company, aptly named 'Infinitum Nihil' (Absolutely Nothing) which he claimed was named with those Latin words so that when asked what it meant, he could reply, truthfully, 'Absolutely Nothing'.
Johnny Depp's acting skills are beyond excellent, and his portrayal of characters such as Pirates of the Caribbean's 'Jack Sparrow' and Finding Neverland's 'J.M. Barrie' have made teenage girls weak at the knees as well as made older fans beam with pride. His looks have attracted many, and he has been deemed, several times, 'Sexiest Man Alive', much to his amusement. Ask any true fan why he is so likeable, and you'll hear the same answer: his generosity, sense of humour and genuine kindness to everyone, the fact that he owns up to the fact that he has made mistakes, knows that he has made them and vowed not to make them again, his absolute modesty and humble attitude to life and his pride and love for his two children and partner of eight years, Vanessa Paradis is what makes him so attractive.
As well as his personality, there are his looks which make girls go weak at the knees. With his Cherokee heritage, Johnny's high cheekbones, slightly 'pouty' lips and highly original fashion sense make him beautiful in every way...as close to perfect as a human being could be.
"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." Johnny Depp

The best, sexiest, hottest, funniest, most talented actor on the face of the earth. One of the only men that I can think of who you couldn't make ugly if you tired. And also one of the only men who looks fine in eyeliner!

The best actor ever to walk the earth. not only just because he's so damn sexy, but because he's so talented and doesn't care what the hell people think about him. he could do any blockbuster he wants to, but he likes to go against the grain. did i mention he's a sexy bitch? well, he is, i'm very happy for (and jealous of) vanessa paradis.
he's kind of like a slug, he oozes sexy out and leaves a trail of sexy wherever he goes! sexy, talented, and humble, what else do u look for in a guy?

A magnificent actor with such good looks that he could make a straight man turn gay.
Johnny Depp can have any woman he wants.

The closest thing to a perfect human being. He is so beautiful, both in the flesh and in the roles he portrays. As well as being ridiculously attractive, he is an incredible actor, underappreciated by new generations of fans for his roles in films such as Edward Scissorhands (who knew the eyes could act more effectively than the mouth?), Ed Wood and What's Eating Gilbert Grape? Recent successes include Secret Window, Pirates of the Carribean and Chocolat. Brilliant. He is the epitome of a sex god. Almost too good for planet Earth, baby.
Johnny Depp is absolutely fucking brilliant.

a completely fantabulous actor who can light up an entire film by simply smiling, speaking, or even breathing. he thoroughly deserves all of the praise he is given, and is way too cool to be bothered by any of the mindless criticism thrown his way.

Johnny is God.
All praise Johnny Depp.
for further proof/convincing, please refer to any of his films, as they are all fantastic.
