One of the reasons we love Johnny is because of his ‘strangeness’. He’s never been the typical Hollywood mega-star, despite always trying to down-play his gorgeousness.
Johnny’s ‘weirdness’ and eccentricities allow him the ability to morph into just about anything. From a scissor-hands to a gonzo journalist, a pirate, a crazy chocolatier, a singing butcher, and even a mad hatter, he's really got the niche of odd characters.
He admitted: "When I was growing up I felt a complete freak. Very strange. I felt weird at five. At the age of 12 it was me against the world. I remember locking myself in my bedroom and playing my guitar. It seemed like I was in there for two or three years."
Of course all that alone-time and guitar playing created an awesome musician as well as the perfect candidate for the one-of-a-kind beloved character-driven roles we love watching over and over. (Check out: Johnny Depp 's surprise guitar appearances).
Speaking of strangeness and weird news, I just have to know if Johnny will take the job of honorary mayor of Creede, Colorado, since when asked about it said he was "in" after falling in love with the city while filming part of The Lone Ranger .
Asked by KDVR's Chris Parente if he'd be "in" to be named honorary mayor of Creede, Depp -- who plays the masked ranger's sidekick Tonto in the film -- answers that he's "in, totally in." “It's a very special place," said Depp. "I’ve been to a few places in my day and there is something about that, there's still I guess the possibility of a simple life there, it appears to me." "I've always adored the place," Depp said of Colorado, citing Woody Creek, Aspen and Denver. "But there was something about Creede that just got a hold of me."
