Fashion Icon: Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp showed up on the red carpet looking ultra suave this year at the Golden Globe awards. He donned a very trendy post-John Lennon round glasses that complemented his shaggy, “I’m here to present and leave” hair style. Surprisingly, he brought something else with him that night–no it wasn’t a new lady friend but it was a very noticeable European accent.

According to Just Jared: While on stage, the 48-year-old actor had an exchange with host Ricky Gervais about last year’s film The Tourist. Ricky asked if Johnny had seen the film yet, to which Johnny replied, “No.” Johnny took the joke in good spirits!

Johnny and his long time girlfriend, actress Vanessa Paradis, have two children together and spend the majority of their time living abroad (hence the acquisition of an accent). According to Wikipedia, the family divides its time between their home in Meudon, located in the suburbs of Paris, Los Angeles, an island he bought in The Bahamas, and their villa in Le Plan-de-la-Tour, a small town 20 km from Saint-Tropez, in the south of France. Depp also acquired a vineyard estate in the Plan-de-la-Tour area in 2007.

Johnny received the majority of his commercial success in the film “Pirates of the Caribbean” where he played America’s beloved favorite character, Jack Sparrow. The movie went on to developing many sequels, all which maintained top box office sales. But some of his enormous acting ability can be seen in films like “Blow,””What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” and cult favorite “Edward Scissorhands”.
