Johnny Depp is one of the most sought-after actors of this day. The Pirates of the Caribbean star may be getting older, but he’s not out of the spotlight just yet. Even though Depp has spent a significant portion of his life in the public eye, there are still some things that very few people know about him. Here, we present 15 things you probably didn’t know about Johnny Depp. Check out part one below, and stay tuned for part two, coming soon!
Number Fifteen: He Moved a Lot as a Child. More than 20 times, in fact! Throughout the entirety of his childhood, Depp moved around a lot until he and his family eventually settled in Miramar, Florida.
Number Fourteen: He Dropped Out of High School…to Pursue Music. That’s right! Rather than dropping out to pursue his eventual career of acting, Depp wanted to be a rock star first. He soon gave that up after realizing he wasn’t going to make it as a musician. However, he and his band The Kids did once open for Iggy Pop, so in a sense, they did “make it.”
Number Thirteen: He Is Grateful for Nicolas Cage. Depp has Nicolas Cage to thank for helping him get his very first acting gig. Cage apparently introduced Depp to his very first agent, and to this day, Depp credits Cage for helping him get his real start.
Number Twelve: He Has Never Won an Oscar. Despite the fact that Depp is a household name and has been nominated for three different Oscars, he has never actually won. However, he has said that he has no interest in winning one, because “I don’t want to have to talk.”
Number Eleven: He Is Buds With Tim Burton. Depp and eclectic director Tim Burton have collaborated on an impressive eight films together. The first film they collaborated on together was 1990’s Edward Scissorhands, and they also collaborated on 2012’s Dark Shadows.
Number Ten: He Was the Sexiest Man Alive…Twice. In both 2003 and 2009, People magazine named Depp the sexiest man alive. We certainly won’t refute those claims.
Number Nine: He Trashed a Hotel With Kate Moss. When Johnny Depp was dating Kate Moss, they stayed in New York’s Mark Hotel and reportedly trashed the $1200 a night presidential suite. Reports said that there was shattered glass, snapped wood, and loud yelling. Depp apparently blamed an armadillo for the damage.
