Johnny Depp - What happened?

He used to be SO incredibly sexy, dapper, seemingly nice, smiling, happy.

Now, he's just this greasy, grimy mess who may be a good actor but whose personality seems to match his physical appearance. He seems to take himself way, WAY too seriously. Oh, and needs a bathe.

I know he thinks he's super cool, etc.., but how much longer can he play this shtick before everyone tires of it?

What are you talking about? Johnny Depp is the most elusive, least famewhoring actor out there. You don't hear about Depp unless he's got a movie coming out and has to do publicity. He safeguards his personal life and family.

He just jumped the shark for me by being interviewed by Patti Smith in Rolling Stone.

I do love him as an actor, but personally he seems to be a bit of a mess. He obviously wants to escpe from his white-trash background, but has failed to develop any visible class or maturity.

I didn't have much of an opinion of him as an actor, but then read the VF article on him a few years ago which took place while he was sailing on his boat.%0D %0D I know these articles are puff pieces, but he came across like such a goofball playing cool. I know it must be difficult cause actors need to be guarded or whatever. Yet, it was a really lame article during which the author just talked about how cool it was to be sailing with JD and his ultra cool friends and rather than dispell that he seemed to relish it.%0D %0D otherwise, I can't recall ever going ot see a movie with him in it - never seemed like much of a draw

I think it's become clear that despite all his attempts to be edgy, he is just a dull man who hides behind manufactured quirky behavior, stupid facial hair, silly hats and friendships with outrageous artists to maintain his cred. I never used to feel this way, but something about his recent behavior (including the latest issue of Vanity Fair) hint at the fact that he is a boring guy who is terrified the public will see the pedestrian fraud behind the curtain.

I've always had the same feeling about Brad Pitt, R26. Masking his good looks with a disheveled appearance, his obsession with architecture and world causes. Even his choice of AJ felt contrived to me, as though he assumed she would give him some street cred.

C'mon , he was a quite beautiful in his twink days. I remember. However, he, like many aging twinks, seemed to never fully develop into a man. He really is kind of femme and starting to look a little like a drag-king. I do admire him not going all Hollywood, but alas that has become his narrative and is becoming tiresome all the same. The recent VF article made me gag. I used to want to read Just Kids, but after this insufferable hatchet job of an interview, I no longer care to.

Until this thread, I never quite realized how overexposed he's become. Ever since he became a supposed box-office draw, he's kept a high media profile, and I see that it's now annoying his fans. Perhaps he'd be happier doing interesting little indies and avoiding the press, but if that's what he really wanted he'd do it.%0D %0D He certainly doesn't need money at this point, but I suspect he likes having first crack at the top scripts, so he's doing what he needs to do to stay on the A-list. Frankly, I wish he'd find a better way to deal with the pressures of fame than by refusing to dress up for the famewhoring.

He's weird and unwashed. I've liked some of his performances but find him completely uninteresting. In interviews he seems totally humorless and affected. %0D %0D Remember back in his teen idol "21 Jump Street" days? He was as fucked up as any other young guy who gets rich and famous quickly; party all the time, fuck lots of women. He was a serial "proposer", engaged to Sherilyn Fenn and Jennifer Grey and Winona Ryder. He took up with Ryder when she was 17; he was 25. They were supposedly the perfect rebel couple and they did have one thing in common; they both wanted everyone to know that they were very, very cool. Why they read "beat" literature like "Naked Lunch" and "On The Road!" Wow, that's so cool! Anyway he and Ryder were portrayed as a forever couple; in a Rolling Stone interview the interviewer said that Depp loved Ryder "profoundly" and he gushed "I love her more than anything in the world." Oh puke! He had "Winona Forever" tattooed on his arm, the idiot. The forever couple eventually ended, as most Hollywood relationships tend to do.%0D %0D Depp was with the cokehead Kate Moss for a while. He said she has a "high-water booty."%0D %0D It's fitting that Patti Smith interviewed him in the Rolling Stone; they're both hilariously pretentious and rub the reader's face in the fact that they're artists, ARTISTS I tell you!%0D %0D Depp has tried for years to make people take him more seriously, but he's just not that bright or interesting. He seems like a very dull, not that likeable person.

He had the kind of good looks that don't age well. See also Leo DiCaprio and, if he had lived, River Phoenix. There is a feminine quality to their bone structure that doesn't work due to the natural aging process. I'd contrast that to someone like Ben Affleck or Matt Dillon who have more "square" features and are aging quite well, IMO. If you'd make a pretty girl at 21, you're going to be a mess at 45. That and massive alcohol and heroin abuse.

The final nail in the coffin of my Depp fandom was the way he referred to that hack Nick Tosches as "my brother" in that tedious Vanity Fair interview. Tosches is the worst tough guy wannabe out there. For a good laugh, check out the Amazon reviews for his Sonny Liston book. Tosches spends as much time talking about himself as he does Liston.

I also find Depp's veneration of Hunter Thompson laughable. HST never wrote anything worthwhile after "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72" and spent the last 30 years of his life a parody of himself. Depp is a sucker for all the stereotypical bad-boy stuff like Thompson and Bukowski. He has no taste; he's just trying to project an image.

Bruce Robinson, on the other hand, is a good writer, if inconsistent. It's just too bad he felt obliged to resurrect the insignificant Rum Diary.

"The one good thing he ever did was Gilbert Grape"

"Ed Wood" is also an excellent movie, and Depp is wierdly brilliant in it.

His getups and greasy hair is how he deals with aging. He isn't a handsome young guy anymore, so he disguises his looks with distractions like greasy hair and beard, kohl underliner, etc.

I will always love him as an actor, but he lost me as a human being when he started about complaining about having to pay taxes. Greedy bastard.

He thinks the West Memphis 3 should obtain a PRESIDENTIAL PARDON!

He thinks Polanski is a great KIDDIE FUCKER!

And now, he speaks in a fake accent?

The man lost it. Fuck him.

What happened his that his audience grew older and less easily impressed.

What happened is he aged and losing his looks made people less likely to overlook his mediocre acting skills.

Wouldn't shock me at all if he were balding. Take a look at the guys you know from work or family that are in their 30s and 40s. Probably more than half of them are balding or have receding hairlines. Then look at H'wood, where the figure probably drops to about 10%. Gives you some idea of how many H'wood men are wigging out.

I was flipping through John Water's "Role Models" today while browsing in a bookstore. The chapter on Leslie Van Houten (Waters supports her and thinks she ought to be let out of prison) mentioned Johnny Depp.

Seems Waters told Depp (Depp starred in the lame "Cry Baby") about Leslie and her plight and Depp wanted to go VISIT HER. Yep, he wanted to go visit a member of the Manson family who gleefully took part in the torture and murder of two innocent people.

I imagine if he had visited her he would have been taken with her "charm" and lobbied to have her released. But alas, the meeting never took place. Depp filled out a visitor's form but was rejected because he had an assault charge against him at the time (Depp was quite the Hollywood Badboy, trashing hotel rooms, getting pissed at photographers, etc.).

Johnny Depp is an idiot.

That Guardian interview:

[quote]What? Hang on a minute; why did he leave France? He makes a sour noise, part grunt, part hurrumph. "Cos France wanted a piece of me. They wanted me to become a permanent resident. Permanent residency status – which changes everything. They just want," and he mimes peeling off notes in his palm. "Dough. Money."

[quote]If Depp spends more than 183 days in France, he explains indignantly, he'd have to start paying income tax. "I'm certainly not ready to give up my American citizenship. You don't have to give up your American citizenship," he adds sarcastically, but then he'd have to pay tax in both countries, "so you essentially work for free."

He makes it sound like he would be double taxed. Correct me if I'm wrong, but since French taxes are higher, wouldn't the IRS credit him whatever he'd pay in France as a full-time resident and he wouldn't owe anything in the US that year? I think the US and France have some sort of tax treaty.

A limited amount of income is exempted from double taxation. In 2009, it was $91,400. There's also a foreign tax credit. I have no idea what it really means for someone who makes as much money as he does. I think we need to page the taxtroll.

He was a good sport about letting the lady get a picture of him even though he implied she was lying about his story.

Most Americans perform poorly on that show. It seems they only know how to plug their recent project and have no personality otherwise.

Gawker today says he was spotted emerging (24 hours after arrival) from Ashley Olsen's apartment (via building next door) in February. Is she his new waif per midlife crisis?

I have to disagree. Might be seeing a photo of him at my cousins house in Tx or knowing that we lived a mile from one another and our parents had retail businesses in the same shopping center or just my attraction to his charming ferrel qualities but I'm partial to him, his look and hope he doesn't change a thing.

by Anonymousreply 16002/21/2013

Will someone tell him he's 50, not 25 and needs to stop with the hipster look? It looks stupid. Same for Brad Pitt.

by Anonymousreply 16102/21/2013

Oh, yeah I am partial to him too and wonder sometimes if he is not playing the biggest joke on everyone.

Johnny Depp is very subversive, not for only his Tim Burton macabres, and his anti-glamour look. He is dead handsome and his trashing of is to be more expected in a younger actor.

When a young girl or guy, dyes their hair green, tattoos and pierces everything it can be viewed as personal expression with some rebellion against the norm. Did some myself.

But I think Johnny Depp is not a hipster at all, more a kind of emotionally diseased and dark guy. Not romantic dark, just dark. I bet that his private actions make his syphilitic screen portrayals pale. I am guessing that he is very bad news. His affected way of speaking, the horrible robin williams meets madonna ennui trash talking with a Lewis Carol twist gives me the creeps. Like he has his own coven somewhere. Just because he looks dirty does not make him down to earth. I think he is hiding in plain sight publicly, though he hides elsewhere most of the time.

Al Pacino is a greater actor and lifelong weirdo too and Brando tops them both. Depp has a history of the darkest things, heroin and women beating.

His is not an attitude of angry anarchy, like Joaquin Phoenix or the petulant rage of Sean Penn. Depp is more a dark force of De Sade, The Ripper, pedophiliac Willy Wonka, Captain Jack with the rock and roll entitlement, and of course all the drugster hipsters and bad guys that he plays with twee and glee avoiding their true ugliness and destruction. I guess I think he might be evil.

The sensitive long haired pretty boy gave way to the insulated and privileged freak. He owns an island, and comes out to act and shows up at award shows like a dark presence. He has no irony. It is more sociopath. He had no chemistry with Angelina Jolie because darkness blots blackness.

I used to love his work and he had a beautiful face, but I think he is a bad deal.

Secrets I would not want to know....

Well, r162, I suspect Johnny Depp would be either amused or frightened at all you're reading into his personality!

by Anonymousreply 16302/22/2013

I really thought he was sexy in his early-mid twenties. Beginning in the late 1990's, he began to look smelly and unbathed. Around ten years ago, he started wearing his "Pirates..." make-up in all of his personal appearances. Last night on Letterman he looked ghastly. I wanted to pull a firehose into that studio and douse him with it. I guarantee that the people on the backrow of the audience could smell his B.O. --- I could almost smell it through my TV screen. His hair was filthy. He was wearing more make-up than a French whore. Nasty!

I never understood the fascination with him. He is humorless, has no wit, doesn't sound very bright and has little talent as an actor.

I bet there are lots of really dark and creepy things happened in his life. He has a disturbing interest in criminals; Polanski, The West Memphis Three, John Wayne Gacy, Charles Manson Gang. He likes to date Lolita women and has a huge alcohol and drug problem, also anger management issues.

The story of Anthony Fox, his former business partner from The Viper Room, who disappeared before he was to testify against Depp in court on charges of fraud is alarming as hell.

He hit the wall right after Sweeney Todd, and hard. He's always been pretentious, with the literary taste of a 16 year old with a bad case of fuck you Dad, but he had a certain beauty and rakish charm. I enjoyed him in stuff like The Libertine, bad accent and all. After Sweeney it's like karma came knocking and everything appealing about him got sucked out all at once. I've never seen anyone lose appeal overnight like that.

Depp's always been a bit of a weird case. Cry-Baby was the first time I really paid attention to him although I had seen him before in Nightmare On Elm Street but only thought of him as The Hot Guy. I never thought he's a good actor when he was younger. To me he was in the films only for his looks, practically another Keanu Reeves although not nearly as sexy. He did have indie reputation so it was weird to see him become one of the best paid actors in the business. One year he earned $100M if I remember correctly.

He's not that bad of an actor really but he's become such a caricature after becoming successful that he's a bit of a joke nowadays. I actually liked him quite a lot in the first Pirates of the Caribbean, and he's almost believable as a British cop in From Hell. The reality is I don't want to see him in anything anymore. He's been around too much. He's got a new movie Black Mass coming out later where he's supposed to be showing his acting talents but I had trouble even watching the trailer. He just makes me cringe now. I know that's a nasty thing to say since I don't think he's a bad human being but his acting has been so lazy for years that I just can't stand it.
