Johnny Depp has turned his back on the hellraising days when he trashed hotel rooms and dated Kate Moss – By Alexa Baracaia, Evening Standard.

Yet despite swapping parties for the quiet life, Depp remains the most fascinating Hollywood star. The 42-year-old heart-throb has topped a list of the most popular film icons of 2005, according to online movie database

His name received the most hits among the tens of thousands of actors covered by the website.

It is the second year in a row that Depp, who lives in rural France with wife Vanessa Paradis and children Jack and Lily-Rose, has made it to number one on IMDB’s “star-o-meter” list.

He began 2005 with an Oscar nomination for Finding Neverland, before enthralling millions with his idiosyncratic interpretation of Willy Wonka in Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.

He also lent his voice to another Tim Burton movie, Corpse Bride, and began filming back-to-back sequels for Pirates Of The Caribbean.

Depp says shunning the limelight and settling down has “done wonders for my relationship with Hollywood”.

He says: “I don’t know who’s famous. I don’t know who’s not famous. So, I come in just completely ignorant of all of it and it feels really good. Because then I don’t have to think about anything but my work.”
