Short Biography 

When this pretty boy leaped to stardom in the ’80s, no one could have predicted that he would become one of the most revered thespians of his generation. A former rock-and-roll wannabe, Depp segued into acting with a handful of big-screen supporting roles. With his stunning cheekbones, he became an instant sex symbol on the TV series 21 Jump Street. After graduating from the small screen, Depp shrewdly eschewed the traditional leading-man route, playing offbeat characters in films helmed by edgy directors: John Waters, Terry Gilliam, and his frequent collaborator, Tim Burton. (One of Depp’s many memorable roles included his wonderful portrayal of the title character in Burton’s magical 1990 film Edward Scissorhands, in which Depp’s handsome face is obscured by makeup and scars.) Off the screen he cultivated a bad-boy image with a string of high-profile romances (Winona Ryder, Sherilyn Fenn, Kate Moss) and trashed hotel rooms. But Depp matured both personally and professionally in the 2000s, earning Oscar nods and making a stable home with his girlfriend Vanessa Paradis and their children. In 2007, he proved that, despite his megastar status, his family was his top priority when he interrupted the shoot of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street to be by his sick daughter’s bedside. Depp continued to show his formidable protean acting skills when he played John Dillinger in the 2009 film Public Enemies, latest in a line of films in which he successfully took on real-life characters (notably, FBI agent Donnie Brasco in the 1997 film of that name and schlock director Edward J. Wood in the haunting 1994 Burton movie, Ed Wood).

1 “There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.”

2 “I think the thing to do is enjoy the ride while you’re on it.”

3 “If there’s any message to my work, it is ultimately that it’s OK to be different, that it’s good to be different, that we should question ourselves before we pass judgement on someone who looks different, behaves different, talks different, is a different color.”

4 “People cry not because they’re weak, it’s because they’ve been strong for too long.”

5 “As a teenager, I was so insecure. I was the type of guy that never fitted in because he never dared to choose. I was convinced I had absolutely no talent at all. For nothing. And that thought took away all my ambition too.”

6 “I like the challenge of trying different things and wondering whether it’s going to work or whether I’m going to fall flat on my face.”

7 “If you love two people at the same time, choose the second one, because if you really loved the first, you wouldn’t have fallen for the second.”

8 “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

9 “Just keep moving forward, and don’t give a shit about what anyone thinks. Do what you have to do, for you.”

10 “Love is not blind. It simply enables one to see things others fail to see.”

11 “We’re all damaged in our own way. Nobody’s perfect. I think we’re all somewhat screwy. Every single one of us.”

12 “There is nothing on earth that could ever make me want to relive certain years of my life when I was young.”

13 “There’s a drive in me that won’t allow me to do certain things that are easy.”

14 “One day the people that didn’t believe in you will tell everyone how they met you.”

15 “You can close your eyes to the things you don’t want to see, but you can’t close your heart to the things you don’t want to feel.”
