“The studios sell a product and I became their product.” Exclusive interview with Johnny Depp for Numéro Homme
He’s one of the few great actors to have written their own destiny. Since becoming a household name at the age of 24, Johnny Depp has skilfully navigated the pitfalls of celebrity by forging his own path in ambitious auteur movies by the likes of Tim Burton and Jim Jarmusch. Numéro Homme sits down with the Hollywood icon – and face of Dior’s Sauvage fragrance – for an exclusive interview.
Numéro Homme: Which directors have had the biggest impact on you?
Johnny Depp: Tim Burton. When I met Tim I had just done Cry-Baby with John Waters. Before John I was on that TV show [21 Jump Street] and I was basically whatever they wanted to sell me as. The studios sell a product and I became their product. They dictated to people what I was and who I was. It wasn’t about me, it was about this image that had nothing to do with me, so I knew I was not on my road.
In this week’s Entertainment Weekly—which features four exclusive covers of the fairy tale epic’s all-star cast—we dive headfirst into the design of the dark, sprawling world of Into the Woods, the musical tale about a childless Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) who attempt to lift a witch’s curse by venturing into an enchanted forest filled with classic characters like Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy). But this isn’t your mother’s Cinderella VHS—nor your daughter’s DVD, for that matter. “I didn’t want this to look like a cartoon world,” says Marshall. “It’s not sunny, sunny, sunny—we wanted a sense of danger.”

While JDorg is nearly complete in everything, we seek one thing: interviews (and articles). The interview archives are relatively empty, and wouldn’t it be nice to have some kind of archive that you can search through? Like “I know he said that but when was it?” and your an put in a word and have the interview?
It is very time intensive, and additionally – you need to know English very well to understand every single word of an interview.
This is where you come into.
