Woah woah woah, Johnny Depp is not a douche? This throws my whole worldview into question.
 
2008-01-15 07:19:08 PM  
Cue the "No, no, Johnny Depp really is a douche because..." stories. There's no hate like celebrity hate.
 
2008-01-15 07:23:54 PM  
:( He's getting married.
 
2008-01-15 07:45:44 PM  
No, Johnny Depp is not a douche. He is known to be one of the most gracious stars to his fans in public, never refuses to sign autographs and is ever willing to pose for photos with them.
 
2008-01-15 09:02:53 PM  
Bravo! Excellent way to show their gratitude.
 
2008-01-15 09:29:16 PM  
That's just awesome. I'm so happy for his daughter. I bet that really brightened up the children's day to have "Captain Jack Sparrow" reading to them.
 
2008-01-15 10:08:57 PM  
But why is the rum gone?

missmez: No, Johnny Depp is not a douche. He is known to be one of the most gracious stars to his fans in public, never refuses to sign autographs and is ever willing to pose for photos with them.

Yes, this. I don't even like a lot of his movies, but he's a class farking act.
 
2008-01-15 10:13:18 PM  
cool for him.
 
2008-01-15 10:21:08 PM  
Somehow he managed to get Disney to pony up another 10 million pounds as well. So he's a nice guy and a farking magician too.
 
2008-01-15 11:05:33 PM  
Depp is quite possibly the only non-douche in Hollywood, or the entertainment industry as a whole, worldwide. Hell, I'm not even a star, just an aspiring filmmaker and actor, and I am a humungous douche! Just ask anyone who works with me.
 
2008-01-15 11:19:17 PM  
That's pretty cool, but I wish he would read to them as Officer Tom Hanson.
 
2008-01-15 11:36:27 PM  
Always nice to see someone show that one doesn't have to become famous at the expense of their own integrity. Bravo, Mr. Depp, bra-farking-vo.
 
2008-01-15 11:53:21 PM  
That wasn't Depp dressed up as Jack Sparrow. Keith Richards just happened to be in the hospital for a total body blood transfusion and he tends to walk into random rooms while telling stories.
 
2008-01-16 01:13:27 AM  
So very, very cool. A good man, indeed. Tip O' the hat, good sir.
 
2008-01-16 02:40:07 AM  
When was the last time Depp was actually in Hollywood? Doesn't he live in France?

There's Yankee hate, it runs deep in these parts. Not quite at the level of Dane Cook hate, but close.
 
2008-01-16 05:05:11 AM  
I heard he also found no-no land
 
2008-01-16 05:20:04 AM  
This is how people used to talk about another heart-throb actor...namely Tom Cruise. Lets just hope Johnny doesnt take the crazy pill
 
2008-01-16 05:32:14 AM  
Johnny Depp once showed me a video of him making love to my wife, and it was the most beautiful thing I ever saw!
 
2008-01-16 05:55:14 AM  
I once saw him scissor kick Angela Landsbury.
 
2008-01-16 05:57:48 AM  
honestly, he seems like an OK guy, and then some.
 
2008-01-16 06:03:21 AM  
How much did he donate to hospitals before this?

Just askin', still think it's great.
 
2008-01-16 06:13:21 AM  
I'd *totally* let him drill me.

Johnny is consistently named nicest/most gracious/most approachable/etc by a number of places. I'm not a fangirl by any means, but good lord, it's hard not to love him.

Echo...echo...echo.

This thread needs more pics.

He's the next Walken
 
2008-01-16 06:42:41 AM  
Just so we are clear:

Fist of an angry deity.
Mighty hammer of Thor.

You know who else is hot and *seems* to be a nice guy?

"crazy" or not Cruise is a cool dude. So is John.
 
2008-01-16 06:49:45 AM  
Johnny Depp is a fantastic guy all around.

Also, is it just me, or is that dress falling off Helena Bonham Carter?

Panties. Just. Disintegrated.

/I'll be in my room.
 
2008-01-16 06:57:23 AM  
If I got sick, even really sick, it'd pretty much be worth it if he'd come read me stories dressed as Jack Sparrow. More pics, please....
 
2008-01-16 07:03:48 AM  
einsiders.comwww.cinemablend.com

These are the two characters I'd like to visit me in the hospital.

\Imagine if he'd shown up as Edward Scissorhands or Willy Wonka. They'd have to have passed out Psych meds afterwards.
 
2008-01-16 07:04:19 AM  
And-1: When was the last time Depp was actually in Hollywood? Doesn't he live in France?

Maybe that explains it.
 
2008-01-16 07:07:35 AM  
Good grief! Vanessa Paradis is 34?!? I remember way back when she was 18 and made my pants feel strange. I wonder if she still got it.
 
2008-01-16 07:22:09 AM  
This thread is in need of more Johnny pics.

Great! Now my 15 yr. old daughter wants to get sick and move to London...Of course I'd HAVE to go..as a concerned mother, you know...

/More pics please...
 
2008-01-16 07:46:13 AM  
FTFA:And on November 29, unknown to the public, Depp spent four hours at the hospital telling bedtime stories to patients dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow

Especially impressive that he didn't turn it into a PR event.
 
2008-01-16 07:56:59 AM  
That is a good thing for sure, but how Bill Gates can give away BILLIONS and is still a douchnozzle to you people amazes me.


/bad mood this morning

Johnny took the crazy pill in the nineties/eighties. Trashing hotel rooms, getting engaged 2938743 times, drugs, all of it. He's all mature now. It's cute.
 
2008-01-16 08:23:37 AM  
This almost makes up for Secret Window.
 
2008-01-16 08:38:08 AM  
I think it would have been great if he showed up as Donnie Brasco.
 
2008-01-16 08:44:50 AM  
Malinki: How much did he donate to hospitals before this?

Just askin', still think it's great.


He has been very active in the Make A Wish foundation and a contributor to childrens hospitals since 21 Jump Street. He recieved the Courage To Care award in 2006 at Los Angeles Childrens Hospital. He just does his humanitarian thing quietly without all the media circus which is how it should be.

My coffee just came out my nose. Thanks a bunch LOL

Me + Johnny + boat = offshore drilling.

He's just a Costco-sized container of yummy, and this only makes him yummier in my eyes.

CatJumpJohn: This almost makes up for Secret Window.

NOTHING will ever make up for Secret Window. Actually, Secret Window was just punishment for 21, Jump Street.
