The increasingly mad world of Johnny Depp


Ten years ago if you asked any hip person who they’d like to be maybe they would reply Johnny Depp.  Good looking, witty, talented. He had it all.

Johnny Depp, was somebody I once really admired.  He seemed to be selective in the films he chose to be in,  often  playing oddballs and outsiders.  He seemed to really stamp a strong identity on each role he played.  Films I really like include Edward Scissorhands,  Benny and Joon, What’s eating Gilbert Grape? He was a natural in Tim Burton films.  Of course he was graced with good looks and a natural abundance of talent. He had the ability to play different roles  including comedy parts.   You would imagine a man such as he, would have the world at his feet…no?

Like so many stars before him, his life in recent times seems to be on a constant downward spiral.  Damning articles have sprung up like noxious fungus.  What’s more youthful Johnny has overnight transposed into bloated Johnny. In previous times  Marlon Brando was once  noted for his great looks and physique and then  piled  on the pounds,  undeterred by what is expected of an iconic Hollywood superstar.  Is Johnny letting himself go in a similar fashion?  Is he pressing the self-destruct button.

He seems to be racking up ex-wives.  His latest break up  hasn’t exactly painted him in a very good light. It seems Johnny’s life  has been fueled by  drugs and alcohol, leading too alleged violence to his much younger wife (Amber Heard).  These domestic  violence abuse allegations, tarnish a diminishing reputation, his stock going down dramatically.  Damning words from Amber include  “There was one severe incident in December 2015 when I truly feared for my life,” she wrote in the court filing in which she also said she “endured excessive emotional, verbal and physical abuse” during the entirety of their relationship. It seems in terms of personal relationships, Johnny is volatile and moody to the extreme.

Johnny has fought back through his lawyers‘Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life.’

We could say that Amber Heard, given her background, was not the ideal person for Johnny Depp to marry.  Amber herself allegedly has been involved in domestic violence towards a women, who was heavily involved with Tasya Van Ree.  Aember and Tasya considered themselves married at a time when it was not possible legally.  Amber’s special relationship with Tasya Van Ree is cited as a reason Johnny dscended into fits of anger and violence.  In Johnny’s previous wife Vanessa Paradis’ eyes, Amber Heard is considereda homewrecking careerwhore who ruined her children’s lives and destroyed her relationship with Johnny Depp

You also have to wonder why Amber got so heavily involved with Johnny and went as far as to marry him, given some of her quotes concerning their relationship  During the entirety of our relationship, Johnny has been verbally and physically abusive to me.”

What a mess film stars mange to get themselves entangled in. Is there any redemption for Johnny Depp? Unless he takes his drinking and drug abuse to newer heights, it’s sure he will be offered new parts in big films.  Despite all the strong allegations made against Woody Allen, he is still very much revered as a film maker. Fervent fans of Johnny Depp will continue to support him.

It would be a pity if Johnny Depp gains more of a reputation for being an alcoholic, than the great actor many know him to be;

  1. I didn’t know he abused her. Well, another reminder than being a good artist doesn’t have to mean you’re a good human. I hope he will change his attitude and dark ways. Thanks for sharing!


  2. you know i have noticed all great celebs have something that lets their fans down eventually. i am not sure and would not want to comment on his persoanl life. but I like him as an actor and he has some great movies to his name. Yes, Edward Scissorhands is one of my all time favourite.

  3. You never know what really happens there. Media is twisting things just as they want. So fame is not the best thing in the world, because you always have to open your whole privacy to the world.
    I still love Johnny Depp for his roles in Tim Burton movies and “Fear and loathing in Las Vegas” etc.


  4. It’s a shame when celebrities go down this road. I can only think there must be more deep rooted issues he is dealing with or bottling up. I think the pressures of fame especially from a young age like he had it can take its tole. Hopefully he will turn things around because as you said, he is admired by many people!!


  5. I was wondering what was going on with J Depp… it’s really too bad that people can lose themselves in the chaos of life, especially life as a star! I feel the same way as you, it’s a shame to have so much talent in acting, and to fall victim to drugs and alcohol (which many are surrounded by and can’t seem to say no to!) I think everyone can turn their life around no matter how messed up they are, they just have to WANT to, and unfortunately that usually happens after hitting rock bottom! BUT maybe he’ll bump into someone that he looks up to and can help him turn around for the better, the Johnny we once adored!


  6. I admire Johnny Depp and I always found him attractive but if he abused Amber then I think that is disgusting and should not go unpunished. I don’t know what to believe but I really hope he did not do it!


  7. Why most famous people go into an insane mode? I do not know for sure what happens inside a private house but I can give him the doubt, he is one of my favorite actors and it will be sad for me to know that what you said could be true.


  8. I guess we are all actors in different ways. We potray specific role in every situation. He is incredible with his craft and whatever he has in his private life, let him fix it.


  9. I’ve been seeing and reading about this. Not sure what to believe because we never really know what happens behind closed doors. Johnny Depp is pushing 50 if not already so I think he’s looking alright?


  10. I admire him as an actor, but would not comment on his personal life because we really don’t know what happens behind the close door. Two of his films, Donny Brasco and Public Enemies are my most favourite movies.


  11. He is such a big actor and after this ‘scandal’ happened there was (still is) a big discussion whether he did it or not. I’m really on Amber’s side even though not fully, would love to see both’s perspectives and thiniking.
