Depp by Christopher Heard

The truth behind Johnny Depp’s bad-boy image in this definitive biography. Accidental actor? Bratty bad boy? Consummate craftsman? Take a little of each, and a whole lot more, and you’ve got Johnny Depp. Delectably dreamy, dramatically dynamic, and Depp-endably dedicated, this young actor is one of Hollywood’s most popular leading men. Depp takes us on a wild ride through Johnny’s life, its ups and its downs, its pinnacles and its depths. Join author Christopher Heard, an ardent fan and host of TV’s Reel to Real, as he follows Depp’s turbulent childhood in Kentucky, his leap into the limelight on TV’s 21 Jump Street, and, finally, his extraordinary success in some of his generation’s best films. Edward Scissorhands, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?, Donnie Brasco, Ed Wood, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas — no other actor his age has such an incredibly diverse résumé. Depp explores his roles in these films and his relationships with their directors. Heard also provides as context the details of Depp’s personal life — from his young marriage, through his years as tattooed Winona Ryder escort and as Kate Moss paramour to his current status as proud Parisian papa and Paradis lover. Scrutinizing Johnny’s shifts as media darling and tabloid target and sifting the truth from the trash in what’s been said about him, Depp is the definitive biography of one of this generation’s most important, most impassioned, and most independent stars.

Johnny Depp has got to be the most gorgeous man in the world! But his looks aside, he is by far the best actor. Most actors fit into one category and type of role... not Johnny. And he is so superb at acting that he can pick and choose what roles he wants. And he really has played some of the best roles in film ever! I could go on and on about him...
But about the book: great, easy read. Perfect for any JD lover.

Johnny Depp is an amazing actor, and an interesting person. Im tired of people judging him soley on his looks (he is so handsome!), after all thats not the most important thing.

I believe johnny depp has true talent and this talkes alot about his life and gives a further understanding about it. Its inspiring that he got famous by accident and came so far.

i belive that johnny is just a really cute guy, and that people shouldnt judge him on his roles in movies. after all, they always say its just acting... why cant they belive that???
