Some interesting things you probably don’t know about Jonny Depp

Depp has been known for his eccentricities from the first time appeared in the spotlight. He is also generally well-liked by those he has worked with, by former significant others and by fans to whom he is kind and generous to and has a solid reputation as being a rather strange but nice guy.

Some of the lesser known things about him reinforce this reputation:

  • Dropped out of high school at age 16 to pursue a career as a musician.
  • Learned French to be able to converse with Vanessa Paradis’ parents.
  • Arrested for trashing a New York hotel room. Depp claimed that an armadillo was responsible, saying that he had found the animal hidden in a closet and it had gone crazy, wrecking the hotel room before leaping out the window.
  • Depp gave Noel Gallagher a white guitar with the letter “P” on it, which he regularly plays during Oasis’ gigs. “P” is the name of a band that Depp was in.
  • Based the character of Captain Jack Sparrow on rock legend Keith Richards and the Looney Tunes character, Pepe Le Pew.
  • He was good friends with Hunter S. Thompson until his death. Depp helped to fulfill Thompson’s last wish after the writer died. Thompson wanted his remains to be shot out of a 150 foot long canon.
  • Suffers from near-sightedness since birth, and is nearly blind in his left eye. He claims that the condition cannot be corrected by surgery.
  • Will not allow paparazzi to take photos of his children because he feels they didn’t ask for the celebrity attention.
