Happy 55th birthday, Johnny. We wish you all the best of everything!
Today, June 09, 2018, Johnny is celebrating his 55th birthday and on behalf of Johnny Depp Network we’d like to wish him a wonderful time on that special day. All the best of everything to him and may he spend his special day with the ones he loves. He’s currently touring with the Hollywood Vampires, so he’s hopefully having a great day today.
We’d also like to take the chance to thank him again for so many years of bringing us joy, happiness, tears, laughter, smiles with the characters you portray in movies and music you play on stage. You’re simply amazing and your talent is touching our souls. Make sure to keep up the good work to enrich our lives with many more special moments with you.
We love you!
The picture you can see on the left was taken in Russia last week, where Johnny had been touring with his band Hollywood Vampires before they headed over to Germany, where they’re currently performing. After a Johnny admirer posted this picture with Johnny on her Instagram account, statements such as “he looks ill” or “he looks so pale and skinny” have been making their rounds on several social media platforms. So, among comments from other fans who told them how lucky they were to have met their idol, were concerns over Johnny’s appearance.
Just to give you an example of how people reacted, comments like those were not uncommon:
‘I think that my hero looks ill,’ said one concerned admirer on Facebook.
‘He looks thin,’ said another.
Others did not seem to recognize the Pirates of the Caribbean star at all.
‘F*** me is that Johnny Depp?’ remarked one Twitter user.
Since I do not like spreading rumors, neither about one of his movie/music projects, nor about his personal stuff, I decided to share this nevertheless. I personally do accept his decisions and privacy etc. and I know very well how a certain angle of a photo or the light might make you look different . So, I read a lot of statements from people who have met him throughout the tour, confirming that he was all healthy and happy when meeting them. I’m asking you guys: please do NOT spread any rumors about health issues or whatever when there are none! Yes, it’s up to you to be concerned and worried when seeing someone losing weight or whatever, but Johnny seems to be fine, so please let your concerns stay concerns and not turn into rumors.
On Saturday, February 17, Johnny attended the Queens of the Stone Age concert in Inglewood, California. A few backstage pictures have been added to the photo gallery. Enjoy!
He’s done it again – Captain Jack Sparrow took time from his pirate duties to visit patients at a children’s hospital in Vancouver, Canada.
Johnny, in his role as Jack Sparrow from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie franchise, surprised patients at BC Children’s Hospital on Monday (August 14). According to the hospital’s Facebook page, Johnny spent over five hours meeting face-to-face with patients in the oncology, general pediatrics and neurology wards.
“Meeting Captain Jack was a dream come true for my daughter,” said Sarah Kertcher, mother of 7-year-old Madison, a patient at the hospital. “He never broke character once and was so generous with his time. He was truly here for the kids and it brought tears to my eyes to see how special he made each one feel.”
Johnny’s visit to the Vancouver hospital was not his first time making a unexpected appearance to fans — in 2015, he, dressed as Sparrow, surprised patients at a children’s hospital in Australia.
The fifth and most recent “Pirates of the Caribbean” film was released in May.
Johnny has arrived in Vancouver and — much to the delight of his admirers — he’s been out and about on the town. Of course, he is there to film his latest movie project Richard Says Goodbye.
To the surprise of Vancouverites, Johnny, sporting disheveled hair, turned up outside the Blackbird Public House on Dunsmuir Street in the downtown business district on July 25. Ever a good sport, he was willing to pose for snaps and chats — and even the occasional kiss.
Fan videos and photos soon lit up social media.

Platoon co-stars Johnny Depp, Charlie Sheen and Kevin Dillon reunited on Sunday in honor of the iconic war film’s 30th anniversary.
The 1987 film, which also starred Willem Dafoe, Forest Whitaker and Tom Berenger, won four Oscars, including Best Picture.
The picture was posted on Kevin Dillon’s official Instagram account and he wrote:
#platoon 30 year #reunion last night at #johnnydepp house #goodtimes @charliesheen
The film was one of Johnny’s first roles, and put Sheen, 51, in the role of a leading man following his memorable cameo performance in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off the year before.
In the 30 years since the film was made, all of the co-stars have gone on to lead very full lives. Depp recently opened up to ET about his teenage daughter, Lily Rose Depp.
Johnny has issued an apology for a controversial comment about President Donald Trump, asking, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”
“It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone,” the actor said in a statement to People on Friday.
Johnny’s joke, in reference to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865, was made during an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival. “I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living,” he added at the U.K. music festival. “However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”
Shortly after news broke of Johnny’s comments, the White House issued a statement strongly condemning the joke and calling on others in Hollywood to speak out.
So, I do NOT intend to start a discussion about political attitudes and which one is the “right” or the “wrong” one and which is the better. There is none! I dot NOT want to start an argument about whether Trump is a “good president” or not.
The aim of this post is to defend Johnny in a way. The internet is full of people either praising or criticizing Trump’s handling and public statements. Many people – townsfolk who isn’t in the public eye, politicians, actors, musicians – are vocal and speak out on Trump and his way of running the United States. Many of them do this publicly via social media, even politicians. Many people criticize him blisteringly and some even become offensive. So, why fuss about it while other actors actually fill their entire Twitter feed with severe tweets about Trump? He’s a normal, human and living person who calls for change in a situation where change is needed.
Edit: Another reason for posting this is to ask you to stop sending me threat directed at Johnny. Even if I could, I would NOT forward them to him. Please remember that this is an admirers’ site dedicated to him and we’re not in contact with Johnny or his management. Your e-Mails won’t reach him!
Below you’ll find a short clipping of Johnny’s comment. I decided to include because I do not want to have anyone believe that Johnny’s becomimng an assassinator. He’s doing what even powerful politicians are doing: asking people to act and change. While at the Glastonbury Festival on Thursday in the English village of Pilton, Johnny brought up the president prior to introducing his 2004 film, “The Libertine.”
“Can we bring Trump in?” Depp says to the crowd, which responds with widespread boos, according to videos of the remarks. “No, no, no. You misunderstand completely. I think he needs help. And this is going to be in the press and it’ll be horrible. But I like that you are all part of it. When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? I want to clarify: I’m not an actor. I lie for a living however it’s been a while. Maybe it’s about time.”
Johnny has again shown how to be an admirable actor and role model and a humane philanthropist at the same time. On his 54th birthday (June 09), he visited a children’s hospital in his Captain Jack Sparrow costume in Haiti. I added several personal images to the photo gallery. I also added pictures of his birthday party that day.
Important note: Those images have alredy been spread all over the internet and it is difficult to find the original owners. I do not claim ownership of the pictures and I would really like it if the original owners of the photos would contact me so I can tag (if wanted) their websites, Twitter accounts, Instagram accounts or whatever. You can contact me via e-mail, Twitter, Instagram or by using our contact form. Or if you want any of those removed from our website, I will not hesitate to do so. Just let me know. Thank you!
If you have taken any images of Johnny that day and would like me to add the to our photo gallery, feel free to contact me either. I will give credit, of course!
