The beginning of Johnny Depp’s career
Johnny Depp was the epitome of a real rebel from an early age. He was born on June 9, 1963 in Owensboro, USA. His father was an engineer and his mother was a housewife. They divorced a few years later while they were already living in Florida, which resulted in Johnny a nervous breakdown. He looked for consolation in drugs, and he was expelled from school. Then he wanted to make a musical career and played in a dozen or so different bands, because formerHe lived a passionate self-taught guitarist (his mother bought his first guitar when he was 12). He even performed with The Kids as support for Iggy Pop.
In 1983 at the age of only 20 he married Lori Anne Allison. Although they divorced two years later, it was her she met him with Nicolas Cage, who got him a role in the horror movie “Nightmare on Elm Street”. He liked working on the set and decided to try to develop in this direction. He graduated from acting school in Los Angeles and landed in the film “Platoon” as well as the series “21 Jump Street “, which made Depp famous. It allowed him to start his career on the big screen.

In the early 1990s, his career took off for good. Johnny’s roles in “Beks” and the cult “Edward Nożycoręki” were assessed very well. Then the actor took full advantage of the life of the first-tier star and did not shy away from scandals. In 1993, at a Depp club called Viper Room River, Phoenix died of a drug overdose. A few months later, the actor was arrested for causing damage to a hotel in Manhattan. He also changed partners frequently. He met, among others with Sherilyn Fenn, Winona Ryder, Jennifer Gray and model Kate Moss. He was handsome, young and rich. Finally, in 1996, Vanessa Paradis ensnared him. They formed a couple for 16 years.
– I am most afraid of public speaking, with particular emphasis on speeches. I remember when I was at the 1991 Golden Globe Awards that I was praying all the time, “God, I’m begging you not to win! My Edward Scissorhands was not that good at all!” Fortunately, the award went to Gerard Depardieu and it was he who had to deliver a speech – he confessed in an interview for the magazine “Machine”.
He also starred in films such as “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape “(1993),” The Astronaut’s Wife “(1999),”The Headless Horseman “(1999),”Blow “(2001), “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl “ (2003), “The Dreamer” (2004), “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (2005), “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest “(2006),”Pirates of the Caribbean: At the End of the World “(2007), “Public enemies “ (2009), “Alice in Wonderland “(2010), “Tourist” (2010), “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides “(2011),” Dark Shadows “(2012),”The Horseman from Nowhere “(2013),”Alice Through the Mirror “(2016), “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them “ (2016), “Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge “(2017),”Murder on the Orient Express “(2017) and”Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald “(2018).
– All the movies in which I played have a common thread – about people so-called normal people call freaks – said Johnny Depp in one of the interviews.
His career slowed in 2018, thanks to his relationship with Amber Heard. The actor met her on the set of “A Diary with Rum” and in 2012 he abandoned Vanessa Paradis for her. They married in 2015, but rumors surfaced that Johnny was abusing the actress a few months after the wedding. The relationship ended in divorce in 2016, but two years later, comments continued on what happened between the ex-spouses, and The Sun magazine called the actor “a female boxer.” Many people believe that Amber planned everything for money, but despite the fact that, among others, Vanessa Paradis and Winona Ryder sided with Depp, filmmakers stopped employing him in their productions.
