I don’t actually need to write an article about why Johnny Depp is everyone’s favorite actor. Its easy to see why. He is probably one of the best, most famous and one of the best loved actors of this generation.
According to Wikipedia, John Christopher “Johnny” Depp II (born June 9, 1963) is the American actor known for his portrayals of offbeat, eccentric characters. He has been nominated for an OScar several times and has received numerous acting awards. Despite of this, here’s my opinion on why Johnny is a hit, not just among screaming adolescent girls but to mature people as well.
He is flexible in terms of the characters he plays. HE simply does not put limits to himself. How can you go from Mort Rainey to Willy Wonka? Who can transform himself like that? Only him.
His characters simply become unforgettable. He is so absorbed into them that his characters simply become iconic and almost identical as him in real life, even long after the movie was made and done. Who can foget Jack Sparrow, Willy Wonka, The MAd Hatter, Edward Scissorhands, Victor Van Dort, Sweeney Todd, Gilbert Grape, to name a few? He can dress himself in drag and play LAdy Gaga, and people will still see Lady Gaga in him decades after the movie.
He is sexy. Over and over again he has been declared as one of the world’s sexiest people. ANd he is not sexy in an ordinary, typical way. He is sexy in a weird way. No one can really put their finger on it.
He has been making movies since 1984 until now, nonstop. His body of work has become immensely remarkable and he simply does not stop working or disappears from the limelight for a long time.
He never watches any of his movies. So that he won’t know what a wonderful actor he is because if he realizes that, he’s still a wonderful actor.
He can sing and he owns restaurants. What can be sexier than a great actor who can sing? Even if I’m not a fan, I’d still probably eat in his restaurant anyway.
There’s nothing about him that’s not lovable. True..He is not known to be a drug addict, a lawbreaker or a prostitute screwing scum and that’s enough for the world, isn’t it?
