Johnny Depp Gossip
Johnny Depp gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
The downside of Johnny Depp always doing weird voices and wearing elaborate makeup for his film roles is that it has killed the magic of his performances. I LOVED Johnny Depp for years and years—he was one of my favorites when I started writing for this site—but he has killed my appreciation for his art with his constant stream of weirdo performances and his scarfy evolution (scarfolution) into a parody of himself.

The Magic Mike XXL junket happened this weekend. During one of her interviews, Amber Heard was asked about the Australian dog incident. Quick recap: Johnny Depp’s been shooting Pirates 5 in Australia. He and Amber arrived on a private jet. They had their dogs with them. The dogs were not quarantined, as REQUIRED BY LAW in the country. Full Story
Today is Johnny Depp’s 52nd birthday. Do you think he thinks about the number? Conveniently a new poster for his upcoming film, in which he plays Whitey Bulger, has been released. Meanwhile he continues to work on Pirates 5 in Australia, monitored by drones. TMZ has the video. Not sure who sent the drone over but I also happened to read an article this morning about how “dronies” are replacing selfies.
Let’s say you’re out for a bike ride. Or a date. And you have a drone. The drone will follow you, shooting the entire time. It’s the new extension of vanity. Because now you can be the star in your own film. This is your own movie montage. Drones might be especially advantageous for Twi-Hards. Remember those Ian Somerhalder fans who were scolded by him for waiting outside his hotel on what he called “my day”? (Click here for a refresher.) Now they can just drone him down the street from the comfort of the coffee shop a block away. Click here to see Johnny Depp getting droned.

Johnny Depp has cranked up the charm dial in Australia. For a few consecutive days now he’s given Australian fans waiting for him on the set of Pirates 5 the full Movie Star Treatment, as the unit publicist doesn’t seem to mind that paps are on site to document every gesture. And every gesture has been so extra. Full Story
You want to smell like Johnny Depp?
Dior is launching a new men’s fragrance. It’s just been announced that Johnny will be the face of the campaign, beginning in September. It’s the first time he’s fronted a beauty product. I guess that Pirates money isn’t going to last forever.
I can’t wait to see what these pictures look like. Will he insist on keeping on all the scarves and feathers and rings and rips in his clothes and hat? Or will it be more like the time Brad Pitt tried to sell us some Chanel with an awkward poetry reading? God, remember that? I’m going to make you watch it again:
Still makes me uncomfortable.

Holy sh-t it's been one drama after another for Johnny Depp in Australia. And it's not like Australia is unwelcoming of celebrities.

I remember hearing a story last year of a woman who flew to Australia with an orange and it turned into a major drama when she got there. They’re serious over there about contamination and bio-transfers. So if you have pets, and you’re travelling there with them, they have to go into quarantine. Full Story
I know I don’t have to rehash this for you, the Johnny Depp week. And how they’ve turned that around in just 5 days. From “missing” and a “mess” to, oh, he might win an Oscar. Do women ever get the same courtesy? Fine. I won’t turn this isn’t a feminist crusade. Full Story

Tom Cruise was in Vegas for CinemaCon as part of the Paramount presentation, especially important because Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation comes out in July and, well, they want it to make big money. They need it to make big money. Footage from the movie was screened for theatre owners and some film geeks. Full Story

And there are a lot of rumours about how it actually happened, where it happened, his state of mind when it went down. Full Story
