Subscribe, sit back,.
And let’s start.CHILDHOOD John Christopher Depp II, better knownto us as Johnny Depp, was born on June 9, 1963 in Owensboro, Kentucky.He was the youngest child in the family: Depp had two older sisters, Debbie andChristy, and an older brother, Daniel. Johnny's childhood can hardly be called cloudless.His father, the full namesake of his son, was a civil engineer. He worked hard, drankfrequently, and had the pleasure of beating his wife and children. His Mom – Elizabeth SueWells, worked as a waitress from the age of 14, mostly in a roadside cafe. The professionand early growing up left their mark. In the interview with Rolling Stone, Depp talkedabout his mother's abusive and eccentric behavior,.
As well as their brokenrelationship in adulthood. “Yeah, there were irrational beatings …Maybe it’s an ashtray coming your way. Maybe you’re gonna get clunked with the phone.” Depp mostly remembers his mother returning home after working two shifts; he rubbed herlegs while she counted coins from the tip. Although he idolized his mother, he was notblind to her erratic behavior and meanness. He told Rolling Stone magazinewhat he said at her funeral: “My mom was maybe the meanest humanbeing I have ever met in my life.” It’s clear that all conditions in which Johnnygrew up influenced him and his future path. The only person with whom the future actorhad a close relationship was his paternal.
Grandfather Jim. He affectionately calledhim “Paw Paw”. While he was still very young, Johnny remembered picking tobacco in the fieldswith him and listening to his stories. He spent all his childhoodwith him, and when he died, the 9-year-old boy went through a real crisis,which was reflected in his behavior. Another factor was the constant change ofresidence. The family often moved, because, according to the actor, his parents did notlike to fix up and clean up their apartments. It got to the point that one day the familymoved to a new house at the end of the street. By the age of 15, young Depp had changedseveral cities and even houses in the same city, moving in total, according to his words, about 40times. When his father was offered a higher salary.
In Florida, their family moved there, leavingall of Johnny's childhood friends in Kentucky. The lack of constancy and stability, the lossof a loved one led to the fact that he began to constantly swear with his parents, at the age of12 he began to smoke and get involved in alcohol. And a year later he started a sexual relationshipwith a girl a few years older than him. When Johnny celebrated his 15th birthday, hisparents divorced. This completely unsettled him, despite the fact that, as he said, hehated both parents. He started to take “every drug known to man”. Among them, accordingto the actor himself, were cocaine, ecstasy, LSD, psychedelic mushrooms and pot.“Mom asked me to give her psychotropic drugs. I tried one pill furtively and realizedthat this is the only way to soothe the pain,.
”the actor later admitted.The result was logical: school absenteeism and the use of prohibitedsubstances led to expulsion from school. Although later Johnny said that hetried to change the situation: It's interesting that Johnny gave his daughterLily-Rose Depp a try of the drug when she was 13. The actor considers such an act amanifestation of a responsible parent, since many children in the high schoolwhere his daughter studied began to take alcohol and psychotropic substancesfrom the age of 12-13 at parties. “She was just 12, and she saidshe didn't know what to do,”… “I said, 'Listen, sweetheart, if you areat a party and someone hands you the joint,.
Take the joint from the person , and pass itto the next person. Please don't experiment with drugs with people you don't know.'”Johnny's first steps in music and cinema A significant event in the life of thefuture Jack Sparrow was a gift from his mother – a cheap $ 25 electric guitar,which he received for his 12th birthday. Watching his cousins play in hisUncles gospel group, he became obsessed with both guitar and music. It became anincentive and creative outlet for Johnny: he independently mastered a musical instrument,and when his parents divorced and decided to live an independent life, he left home andmoved into a trailer with his friend Sal. At first, Johnny played with small garagebands, then he formed his first band,.
Which he called Flame. At that time, it seemedto him that he had found his place in life, his professional vocation.Soon he joined the musical rock band “Kids” and performed in nightclubs as part ofthem. Once their performance was heard by Iggy Pop, after which he invited the guys to perform”as an opening act” for one of his concerts. The future star was also impressed by thevisual component of rock and roll life. You will hardly be surprised, knowing his styleof dressing. But the fact is that in order to stand out not only in behavior, but also in style,Johnny stole things from his mother's closet. Then I used to steal my mom's clothing. She hadall these crushed-velvet shirts with French-cut sleeves. And, like, seersucker bell-bottoms.In one of the interviews, he admitted that he.
Wanted to wear platform shoes,but “just couldn't find any.” But the first fees were not comparablewith what a young man needed to survive. Because Johnny was forced to get by withpart-time jobs: he worked at a construction site, worked as a courier and soon found a “stable” jobselling ball pens. But the guy gave all his free time to music. In just 4 years, Johnnychanged 14 different musical bands. At the age of 20, the guy first married thegirl Lori Ann Allison, who was 5 years older than Johnny and worked as a make-up artist.Happiness did not last long. Two years later, the couple broke up due to the fact that the girldidn’t like the constant lack of money. But their marriage was the second significant event inthe life of our future star. Knowing about.
Her husband's plans to become an actor, Laurieintroduced him to Nicolas Cage. By the time they met, he had already managed to gain experience inthe cinema: he starred in Francis Ford Coppola's “Rumble Fish” and a number of other films. From that moment, a new stage in the life of a young man began, which in the future wouldbe quoted by both children and adolescents, imitating the habits of Jack Sparrow.In the meantime, he got the first role in the horror film that later would become a cult- “A Nightmare on Elm Street”. It was released in 1984. Johnny claimed that he counted on anepisodic role, considering participation in the film as a springboard for his musical career.But the directors were touched by his naturalness and charisma, and they offered the guy the roleof Glen, one of the main characters in the plot..
Thanks to this role, other Hollywoodfigures drew attention to Johnny and began to invite the young man to shoot. And Johnny himself literally “fired up” with acting. Without hesitation, he accepted aninvitation to shoot in the teen comedy “Private Resort”, which was released in 1985. This was thefirst role of a young actor, where he had to make professional “sacrifices”, namely, to act naked.But musical dreams didn’t leave him. Wanting to save up for a new album, he took part in thefilming of such television series as “Hotel” and “The Lady in Blue”, as well as the supportingrole of Doni Fisher in the film “Slow burn”, along with Eric Roberts. But it didn't workout as planned. Instead of a new album, Johnny chose to spend money on acting classes(and not in vain, as time has shown)..
Pumping professional skills turned out to be veryuseful. It led to the fact that we met a young man in the cast of Oliver Stone's military drama”Platoon”, where he received the supporting role of Private Lerner. Filming took place in difficultconditions. The whole process of shooting took 54 days in the Philippines. Actors were “trained”like real soldiers: they had to learn how to move with equipment through forests, swamps androcks, eat army food, and sleep in trenches. It was here that Johnny was ableto play side by side with actors such as Charlie Shinn, Willem Dafoe, JohnMcGinley, Forest Whitaker and others. The film was released in 1986 and almostimmediately received eight Oscar nominations. According to the law of meanness,almost the entire performance of.
Johnny fell victim to Oliver Stone's editing,it was cut from the final version of the film. The actor appeared only in a few frames in thebackground and in the central role of only one scene, where he worked as an interpreter.Without losing hope, upon returning from the Philippines, he continued to go throughauditions. In some of them he was successful. So, in 1987, Johnny played in thepopular television series 21 Jump Street, getting the role of a policemaninvestigating the crimes of schoolchildren. By the way, another popular actor played alongwith John. Brad Pitt also participated in this movie, although it wasn’t the title role.”21 Jump Street” made the guy very popular among young people. Nevertheless, the actor himselffelt that the show was “stifling” his potential..
He didn't want to be seen as just a “teenageidol”; playing the same “one-dimensional” character became tiresome for him. Johnny claimedmore eccentric and meaningful roles, having not only creative talent, but great ambitions.In an interview about 21 Jump Street, the actor spoke unkindly about the series.“In the first two seasons I thought there was a lot of good stuff going on,” … “Therewere good, important messages. But I think around the third season, it started to geta little show-boaty, you know what I mean? It just started to become false. It started tobecome this action-packed can of soup, you know? You just market it, and send it out.”It got to the point that the actor began to commit provocative antics in order to be firedfrom the show. One day, he trashed a trailer..
“After being confined to a televisionseries when you can’t play anything but one particular character for, you know,nine months… that’ll make you insane.” Trying to get rid of the sugary role,Johnny happily accepted the invitation of the infamous director John Waters to play thelead role in the grotesque musical Cry-Baby. There John was a rebel, handsome,impudent and imprudent bully. The musical film was released in 1990 and receiveda lot of positive feedback from the audience. Such a step broke the stereotyped ideaof Johnny as an actor of one role and became a springboard to the next rolewhich became significant in his life. You probably immediately guessed which one. And while I haven’t spoiled the movie yet,.
Pause and write your guess in thecomments (yep, I’m waiting) In 1989, Johnny was lucky. He was invited to thelead role in Tim Burton's Edward Scissorhands, despite the fact that there weredecent competitors for the role. And all of them were no less talented than Johnny:Brad Pitt, Robert Downey Jr., Jim Carrey… It’s for this role that we remember JohnnyDepp when we talk about his career achievements (“Pirates” are not taken into account),and exactly this role brought the actor three important things: it raisedhim to the acting Olympus, and also – brought him the Golden Globe nominationand introduced him to Winona Ryder, with whom he connected his life for four years. It’s interesting that the main character – a.
Cyborg, played by Johnny, speaks only 169 wordsfor the entire film. However, this does not prevent the actor from showing us the whole rangeof feelings and emotions that Johnny experiences, using only one thing – his eyes. Well, there is one more important thing. This role helped Johnny make a long and strongfriendship with Tim Burton, which gave the world such films as Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and theChocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd, Dark Shadows and other cool works of the tandem. They were two brilliant minds and at the same time – two men experiencing difficulties withcommunication. But with a similar outlook. Johnny recalled their first meeting this way: “After sharing three of four pots of coffee, stumbling our was through each other’sunfinished sentences but somehow still.
Understanding each other, we ended the meetingwith a hand shake and a ‘nice to meet you’.” In turn, Tim said: “Johnny is very much known as a teen idol and he’s perceived as difficult and aloof. As a personhe's funny and warm, a great guy. He's a normal guy-at least my interpretation of normal-but he'scompletely the opposite of this perception. The strong cast: Vincent Price, Alan Arkin, DianneWiest, gave the young actor a new experience. With particular warmth, he recalled working withVincent Price. They became very close during filming and communicated until Price's death. But it was not without curiosities. It took some time for Johnny to get used to his costume. Thisfact led to several blade incidents. For example, once in a scene where Anthony Michael Hall'scharacter had to confront the main character,.
He accidentally stabbed Hall's hand. But back to matters of the heart. Winona charmed our hero. Innocent face,big eyes…She even wore an engagement ring, and Johnny got a “Winona Forever”tattoo in honor of her. When they met, Winona was 16 and Johnny was 26. “It was a classic glance like in West Side Story where everything else went foggy,”…“When I met Winona and we fell in love it was absolutely like nothing ever before-ever” They soon became one of the most frequently discussed and adored couples in Hollywood. Theywere inseparable, spending whole days together: reading beat poetry, going to bookstoresand listening to their favorite records. They even had “their own” song -“Crazy For You” by Madonna..
Five months later, Johnny proposed to Winona. Shealso admitted that Depp was her first love. “When I met Johnny, I was pure virgin. Hechanged that. He was my first everything. My first real kiss. My first real boyfriend.My first fiancé. The first guy I had sex with. So he'll always be in my heart.forever. Kind of funny, that word.” But love didn't last forever. Gradually they began to move away from each other. There were several reasons for this. The firstwas the workload of the schedules of both stars, since at that time they were at the peak of fameConstant filming, schedules that didn't match – somehow they started to spend less time. The second reason was the paparazzi, as well as rumors and gossip about young actors. Winona was credited with romances with Gary.
Oldman, then with Daniel Day-Lewison the set of The Age of Innocence. Gradually, conversations around the coupleabout betrayals, partings, engagements and disagreements in their couple began to grow. They experienced the breakup in different ways. According to rumors, Winona said that it would bebetter for both of them. Depp, on the other hand, experienced their breakup very painfully. TimBurton, who watched Ryder and Depp's relationship, noted that the latter was “never the same”after their relationship with Winona. In the interview with the LosAngeles Times, the actor said: “It’s very hard to have a personal lifein this town. My relationship with Winona, it was my mistake to be as open as we were. ButI thought if we were honest it would destroy that.
Curiosity monster. Instead, it fed it, gave peoplea license to feel they were part of it.” After a while, Johnny changed the tattoo from”Winona forever” to “Wine forever”, arguing that the complete removal of the tattoo would mean theremoval of this part of his life with this girl. And he didn't want that.Career takeoff After “Edward” the career of the futurecaptain Jack Sparrow rapidly went up. He was noticed by eminent directors, and one ofthem was Emir Kusturica – a symbol of the Balkan cinema. He offered Johnny a role in one of hisfilms, Arizona Dream, which was released in 1993. Like all of Kusturica's films, “ArizonaDream” became a very unusual, surreal movie, where Depp played a romantic guy who followedhis dream, learned to love and went through.
The metamorphosis of growing up. Although thedream, like the film, came out quite unusual: it featured Alaska and a flying halibut.Despite the eccentricity, the movie found its fans, becoming very popular in France andreceiving a prize at the Berlin Film Festival. Then there was a tandem with MaryMasterson in the touching comedy “Benny and Joon” directed by JeremiahS. Chechik, which was released in 1993. The next work was the participationin the filming of the film “What's Eating Gilbert Grape” of the same year,together with the young Leonardo DiCaprio. It was one of Johnny's first bright dramaticroles, where he revealed the image of a young guy, tired of life, who didn’t see any prospects. Of course, until he met love and went on a.
Trip with his younger mentally retardedbrother, who was played by DiCaprio. Recalling the shooting, Depp admitted thathe was going through hard times at that time and Leonardo annoyed him a little.“I tortured him…I really did. He was always talking about these video games, you know? Itold you it was kind of a dark period. ‘No, I will not give you a drag of my cigarette whileyou hide from your mother again, Leo.’” Gradually, Johnny became addicted to public life.In 1993, he opened a club called the Viper Room, which was meant to be a rock concert venue.The club quickly gained popularity not only among musicians, but also among celebrities. Everyoneplayed there: from Guns N’ Roses to Johnny Cash. Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Aniston andUma Thurman became frequent guests..
The haven of fun and revelry wasovershadowed by the death of Johnny's friend River Phoenix. He died from a drug overdose.There was information in the press that some time later, Johnny blamed himself for this, allegedlyhe personally gave Phoenix the same dose. As an argument, they gave his phrase:“Imagine living with that…” Friendship with Tim Burton brought theactor another role in 1994. It was the comedy-drama Ed Wood, where he showed the fate ofthe worst director in Hollywood, Edward Wood. The picture was shot in black and white, whichmade it very stylish and atmospheric. The biopic also impresses with its cast.In addition to our hero, you can see Sarah Jessica Parker, Martin Landau, Bill Murray,Patricia Arquette and Vincent D'Onofrio.Tired.
Of serious roles, Johnny gladly set to work,where he could have a lot of fun: for the sake of Wood's famous “cat” smile, special dentureswere inserted into him, he changed into a woman …and freely felt in a workingtandem with a brilliant director. Despite the film's box office failure, manycritics received the movie positively. So, according to Rotten Tomatoes, “Ed Wood” has arating of 8/10, based on 59 reviews from critics, 92% of whom liked the film. The National Boardof Film Critics of the United States included “Ed Wood” in the list of 10 best films of 1994. In addition to the unusual role that brought our hero a lot of fans, this year gave Johnny ameeting with the famous model – Kate Moss. This romance was stormy and dizzying. It wasof those that could be called “on the verge”,.
It’s not for nothing that journalistsdubbed their relationship “cocaine”. They met in 1994 at the New York Cafe Tableand immediately noticed each other. “I knew from the first moment we talkedthat we were going to be together,”… then the model told They didn’t part until 1998, and all this time their relationship was reminiscentof a rollercoaster: scandalous antics, naked, outrageous passion and demonstrativeness. Kate introduced herself to journalists under the surname Depp, and Johnny mentioned tothe media about his plans to have children. Whether it was on camera or real intentions- we won’t know. But the couple didn’t get out of their hotel rooms for weeks andtried to spend all the time together. .
“They can't keep their hands, lips, mouths,legs off each other,”…one of Depp's friends recalled in an interview with People magazine. At the same time, they were under the influence of alcoholic beverages and drugs almost allthe time. When, some time later, in 1994, the supermodel announced the breakup, Depptrashed the Mark Hotel room, for which he was arrested. This was followed by an equallyeccentric situation: a loud scandal with breaking dishes in a London restaurant. The couple decidedto reconcile in the same restaurant, making love in front of obviously stunned spectators. In 1998, Moss already distinguished herself: she trashed a room in the French hotel Hoteldu Cap, where they rested together. Because she was not allowed to walk in a commoncorridor in a bikini (Nothing strange…). .
Trying to keep Kate, Johnny gave her expensivegifts. For example, a diamond necklace, which he bought for his beloved and hid betweenthe buttocks. (I wonder how long she searched) The couple broke up after 4 years of relationshipquietly, without official publicity. At some point, they stopped appearing together, and laterit became known about the separation itself. Johnny himself took the blamefor the breakup entirely. “I'm so stupid because we had so much going forour relationship…I was difficult to get on with, I let my work get in the way and I didn't giveher the attention I should have done…Sure , I should care about my movies, but when I gethome I should try to leave that stuff behind, …I couldn't do that and I was horrific to livewith. Trust me, I'm a total moron at times.” .
Kate recalls their relationship with warmth:“I was lucky to be with Johnny…He taught me a lot about fame. He told me,'never complain, never explain'. Love adventures didn’t prevent our herofrom following his acting dream. Another reincarnation was waiting for Johnnyin the film by Jim Jarmusch “Dead Man”, which was released in 1995. Here he hadto play the shy accountant William Blake, who was forced to go on a mystical,possibly posthumous, journey. This was followed by two works withMarlon Brando – “Don Juan de Marco” and “The Brave”, released in 1995 and 1997. Their joint work was marked by an amazing coincidence of minds. In a 2016 interview,Depp recalled their meeting, during which.
They discovered that they were both big fans ofWilliam Saroyan's play The Time of Your Life. After that, Johnny opened his wallet and took outa folded piece of paper – an excerpt from a book with the same play, which he always carriedwith him. Surprisingly, Marlon did the same: he showed him a frame in which therewas exactly the same, folded and many times re-read excerpts of the book, which he hadcarried in his purse for many years before. Depp greatly respected and looked up to Brando.In the same interview, speaking of Marlon, he said the following words:“He understood me very well and I understood him…We connected on many levels, especially thefact that no one wants to be a novelty.” It's important to mention that The Brave wasJohnny's first directorial debut. The film was.
Based on the novel The Brave by Gregory MacDonald,in which the actor also played the main role. But this debut was not easy for him. Moreover,he was forced to invest about $ 2 million in film production, paying aquarter of the total costs. “I felt driven to do this movie,”…“This was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. It's justabout ripped me to shreds.” Despite Johnny's efforts, the picture failedand received a number of negative reviews. Variety called the film “a turgidand unbelievable neo-western.” Screen International were more categorical:“Depp’s ignominious directorial debut crawls across the screen for two hours like a snail.Narratively inept and dramatically empty. “ .
In parallel, a kind of “criminalperiod” began in Johnny’s career. He starred in the action movie “Nick of time”by John Badham, where he played the role of a cowardly accountant who faced a difficult moraland ethical choice with an unexpected plot twist. In “Donnie Brasco” in 1997, Johnny workedon the set with the famous Al Pacino. An experienced gangster and his assistant,who was actually an undercover FBI agent, made an excellent team not only inthe film, but also on the set. Both Alfredo and Johnny confessed they admireeach other. In fact, it was Al Pacino who was first supposed to play Brasco in the movie. Butonce Pacino decided to don the character of Lefty, the actor recommended Johnny Depp for therole. This proved to be a strength of the.
Film because as the great Roger Ebertpointed in the review of the film, “Donnie Brasco is essentially a movieabout friendship between two men, two tough men who hardly find anchorin each other.” (Roger Ebert) The film received positive reviewsfrom critics and commercial success, as well as about 20 awards and nominationsat American and international film festivals, including nominations for the Oscar, Best AdaptedScreenplay and the European Film Award. And here we turn to one of theiconic movies of Johnny Depp. Well, who did already guess it? And now?That's right, folks! It's about the hallucinogenic adventures of themain characters in the film “Fear and Loathing.
In Las Vegas”, which was released in 1998.The story is based on the novel of the same name by the infamous writer Hunter Thompson,which the actor read at the age of 15. In 1994, Johnny had the opportunity to meetthe author himself. Struck by his openness and extravagance, bordering on insanity, Johnnyimmediately felt that they were alike. (well, who would have doubted…) According to Johnny himself, their meeting took place in 1994, at the WoodyCreek Tavern, which was located in Colorado. The first thing the actor remembered about hisfriend was the sparks that his stun gun gave out: …I see sparks! I realized there was …a Tasergun, and …people were leaping and hurling themselves out of the path of the mayhem thatwas approaching—and I heard the voice first say,.
“Out of my way, you bastards!” … He made theRed Sea part, arrived at my table, and said, “How are you? My name is Hunter.”To prepare for the role, Depp lived with Hunter for several months at his house. And during thisperiod they became so close that journalists began to call them “family”. This friendship lasteduntil the writer's death in 2005, after which Johnny paid for his rather expensive funeral.Its price was associated with the writer's unusual last wish. And Hunter wanted to be shotwith ashes from a cannon (quite an appropriate funeral for such a person). In addition, hepaid off all his debts and produced the film “The Rum Diary” based on Thompson's novel of thesame name. He also played a major role in it, and this role was the beginning of a sequence oftroubles for our hero. But more on that later. .
Remembering Hunter Thompson,Johnny said the following: He knew I worshiped him, and I know that heloved me, so he may have been part father figure, part mentor, but I'd say the closest thingis brothers. We were like brothers. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was nominated forthe Palme d'Or at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival, but the jury, which included Depp's ex-girlfriendWinona Ryder, awarded the prize to the work of Greek independent director Theo Angelopoulos. The turn of the millennium was crowned with the opening of Johnny's personal star onthe Walk of Fame and wild popularity. Now he could sort through the films and chooseonly those that matched his taste and vision, selecting the actors with whom he would like towork with. But fame and success didn’t prevent.
Our hero from critically evaluating himself andremaining “sober” in relation to his results. In 1999, the next cult filmstarring Depp was released. It was the mystical thriller The Ninth Gatedirected by Roman Polanski. The actor was able to brilliantly embody in the film a new image forhimself – a charming, money-hungry scoundrel. The Ninth Gate packages its scares with classystyle that the characters deliver with sexily provocative intelligence. Dean Corso may beJohnny Depp’s greatest spiritual transformation, from odious to ultimate evil andthe audience cheers on his descent, happy to ride with him straight to hell.The film brought the actor not only an excellent role. On the set of TheNinth Gate, Johnny met his future wife,.
Vanessa Paradis, with whom he lived for 14years and had two children. In the interview with the Daily Mail, the actor recalled:She was wearing a dress with an exposed back and I saw that back and that neck, and thenshe turned around and I saw those eyes, and — boom!… you have this feeling— I can’t really explain what it was, but I had it when I met her. I saw her across aroom and thought: “What’s happening to me?” A year later, their daughter was born. They calledher Lily-Rose Depp. The actor changed a lot, according to friends' words. He gave updrinking, drugs and idle entertainment. “When I saw my daughter being born, it was thefirst really totally selfless moment I'd had” Johnny completely immersed himself in thefamily and the upbringing of his first.
Child, while continuing to shoot in movies. In the same year, 1999, another famous film wasreleased. It was a gothic horror film featuring Depp – “Sleepy Hollow” by Tim Burton. As you cansee, his friend didn’t forget about Johnny. It was a loose adaptation of Washington Irwin'sshort story, in which Johnny played the role of Constable Ichabod Crane, who investigatedmurders and at the same time lost consciousness at the sight of blood. The image of Ichabodwas, as if, painted under Johnny – just look: extravagant, bright, eccentric, he quicklygained popularity and became a cult. And, of course, it’s impossible not to mentionthat such amazing actors as Miranda Richardson, Casper Van Dien, Christopher Lee, Geoffrey Jonesand others worked on the set with Johnny. .
Perhaps it was thanks to the good directorialand acting work that Sleepy Hollow collected a number of awards: the Oscar forBest Production Design, the BAFTA for Best Costume Design, Saturn and others. After filming, Johnny had the warmest memories of his work and a very unusual bonus – a one-eyedhorse that played Ichabod Crane in the film. The final period of Johnny's “dark” filmswas another horror film – “From Hell”, where he appeared in the imageof Inspector Frederick Abberline, a brilliant drug addict detectivewho was also a clairvoyant. Under an opium stupor, he saw crimes beforethey happened, but couldn’t prevent them. The work of Albert and Alain Hughes reallydeserves attention (if you haven't seen it yet,.
Check it out now). Great acting by IanHolm, Robbie Coltrane, Ian Richardson, and of course Depp didn't give the film achance to fail. Although some critics with cynical sting reacted to Johnny's approachto the manifestation of the character. Despite the fact that “From Hell” was not thefirst historical film in Johnny's biography, he took the opportunity to participatein the film with great enthusiasm. “I'm a history freak and alwayswanted to travel back in time, so period films give me that opportunity.”…”walking onto the Whitechapel set they built in Prague was about the closest opportunityyet for me to step back in time.” Between horror and family life, Deppwas involved in a number of roles. So,.
In 2000, three films were released: “The Man WhoCried”, “Before Night Falls” and “Chocolat”. The role of a transvestite prisoner, as wellas a sadistic jailer in the same film – Until Night Falls by Julian Schnabel is considered oneof the most scandalous in Johnny's career. And not only because the actor played twoopposites, opposed in one plot. The tape touches on a number of political and acute socialissues in the life of post-revolutionary Cuba, mixed with the fate of people who got outof the regime: poets, artists, gays. By the way, for his role Johnny didn’ttake a cent, thus confirming the idea that acting for him is, first of all, away to express himself and his ideas. In 2001, one of the most controversial,according to critics, Depp's works,.
Cocaine, was released, where the actor hadthe opportunity to work with Penelope Cruz. Here he got the role of American smugglerGeorge Young. Drama directed by Ted Deme was based on real events and told aboutthe life path of the protagonist. While preparing for this role, Johnny even visitedGeorge Young in prison for several days. Here is what he later wroteabout these meetings: 'It’s very rare in life that any person opensup their heart and soul to you with unlimited access to their most profound thoughts, dreams,fears, regrets, intimacies,' … Even more rare when you’ve just met that person and, becauseof the obvious predicament, it’s highly unlikely that you will be spending too much time withthem in the near future. So for this and more,.
I owe a great debt of gratitude to George.'Cocaine did not live up to financial expectations. At an outlay of $53 million, it raised just alittle more within the US and another $30 million worldwide. The rating was also disappointing:at 55% at Rotten Tomatoes, based on 141 reviews and Metacritic, the film has a weighted averagescore of 52 out of 100, based on 34 critics. But Johnny didn't give up. Later fategave him a role that became a cult. The image which became the culmination ofhis career, and in which he was able to embody all his artistry and extraordinariness.Yes, this was the role of Captain Jack Sparrow. Initially, it wasn’t important at all inPirates of the Caribbean, and Jack Sparrow was supposed to be completely different. And, ifeverything went according to the original idea, we.
Might not enjoy a drunken, cheerful and slightlyvulgar pirate at all. But Johnny suggested very non-standard corrections to the image…What? Whodid Johnny copy Jack Sparrow's mannerisms from?
