I love this!!!
Where's Le Depp? You left me hangin'.
You actually broke that news to me here. They kept that shit a secret all the while filming.
Depp's gotta be the coolest dude in Hollywood when it comes to fan treatment, crew treatment on set.
The anti-Ben Stiller.
I loved it - I saw it 3x. Evidently Adam McKay (director of Big Short) just approached Depp at a premiere or awards show with his agent Tracey Jacobs - and Depp just goes "sure, I'll do it!" on the fly.
I love him!!!
(BTW--pulling off prosthetic makeup like that is brutal.)
He's boring now.
That's him in the gif, pulling off the Trump prosthetic makeup.
No I want to see him, underneath it all.
The gif doesn't do the full reveal, unfortunately.
I met him when he was filming "Public Enemies" really nice guy. Went above and beyond the whole time he was shooting to make time for the fans.
Do tell?? I've heard and seen NOTHING but crazy great things about him and humility on sets and in public. Something like 5 years in a row - he was voted "Best Autograph Signer" by the celeb media (TMZ Radar etc) and DiCrapio was voted the worst.
You from Indiana, Wisconsin, Chicago? Can you believe the deterioration in Derrick Rose and Lance Stephenson's game and profile?
I worked on Alice in Wonderland for a few weeks, and Depp was a pretty good guy -- not an asshole at all. A little distant, but not jerky. Way, way into the part, spoke in a British accent most of the time.
South burbs of Chicago. I was working in the area they were filming and had access to a few buildings that were shut down to the public. I walked out and he was heading to the alley all by himself to film a scene. mid-afternoon and like a Western it's just him and I in the middle of the street. I didn't even know it was him cause I was shocked how short he is. Once he saw I realized it was him he stopped and took a minute to say hi and chit chat for a few. I said something dumb like "my woman loves you. She's never gonna believe this" Saw Christian Bale too and he was the exact opposite. Head down and walking fast. I stalled on my job at that location to watch the spectacle. Had roof access to a building next to the trailer lot and would see young ladies in the crowd being led by security to a few trailers. It was a cool experience. The last day of filming Depp stayed till after midnight signing stuff and meeting fans. There was a lone dumpster left the following day and I took a brand new garden hose out of it they used and just threw out. I still have it and call it my Johnny Depp hose
Another thing that was weird... They prepped a building for shooting for a few weeks before the stars showed up. They had huge portable generator lights shining from the outside into the building and they put orange plastic over the windows. Supposedly it makes the "sunshine" look good. I was interested in the trade guys working there cause that's what I do. They let me in an area to look around and they hung up cardboard and painted features to make the interior look like the right period. Nothing was real. It changed the way I look at movies. Just total rigged up garbage that artists or whatever made look right for the camera. That plus the speed and effiency of the filming really made you appreciate its all business. In, shoot, out. ASAP.
How come Burton didn't hire you for "Alice 2: Crazy Alice"?? The movie WILL bomb because you're not involved, I guarantee it!?!??
My take on how artists handle the public is, during shooting, it can be just way too distracting to deal with anything but your character (for some artists).
And some are just pure fukkin assholes!!!
That's a GREAT story!! Thank you, sir!! Everything I've heard great about Johnny Depp in gracious thankful humility - I've heard just the opposite about Christian Bale.
Funny thing is, in that film, Depp and Bale only have one little scene together in a jail cell.
Fuck I was sooooo disappointed in his inclusion for the Lemmy tribute at the Grammys! Way to pick a shitty band for his send off. Depp sucked.
