Johnny Depp Quotes

johnny depp photoJohnny Depp is in a new movie called Black Mass. He is best known for playing Jack Sparrow, the pirate Captain. I became a fan when I saw the 1990 movie Edward Scissorhands.

“I realized that Edward was all alone, and inside of all of us is this lonely little kid. Edward is a total outsider. I really know how that feels. And so, eventually I found him. And Edward – he just clicked.”
–Johnny Depp NY Times 1991

“I can remember when I finished Edward Scissorhands, looking in a mirror as the girl was doing my makeup for the last time, putting on the appliances and the prosthetics, and thinking, wow. This is it. I’m saying goodbye to this guy. I’m saying goodbye to Edward Scissorhands. It was funny, I was kind of sad. But in fact, I think they’re all still in there.”

“The idea of dancing is only thing that scares me.” Johnny Depp.
“People say I make strange choices, but they’re not strange for me. My sickness is that I’m fascinated by human behavior, by what’s underneath the surface, by the worlds inside people.” Johnny Depp.

In Black Mass, Depp plays Whitey Bulger, the brother of a state senator and the most infamous violent criminal in the history of South Boston, who became an FBI informant to take down a Mafia family invading his turf.



Benedict Cumberbatch, another one of my favorite actors,  is Bill Bulger, brother of Depp’s character.

What is your favorite Johnny Depp movie?

    I have been a fan of Johnny Depp ever since I saw Edward Scissorhands (which I saw several times), then I liked him as Gilbert Grape. After I saw Chocolat, I was hooked and tried to see anything by Depp, including all the Pirates of the Carribbean.
    In fact he inspired a character, Prince Ian in my novel, Mandy’s Song. All my photos of him on Pinterest have been repinned several times. Can’t get enough of him.

    • I haven’t seen all his movies but I’m looking forward to this new one. I saw the previews and he looks very different.
      I didn’t think to put photos of him on Pinterest. Good idea.
