Happy 50th, Johnny!

It's hard to believe that the talented and lovely Johnny Depp hits the half-century mark today. The Kentucky native is showing no signs of slowing down as he enters his sixth decade. John Christopher Depp II was born June 9, 1963 in Owensboro, Kentucky. Just to give you an idea how long ago that was (ahem, sorry Johnny), JFK was assassinated that year, gasoline was 29 cents a gallon and Martin Luther King gave his famous "I have a dream" speech.  But I must say, the gorgeous Mr. Depp doesn't look a day over 35 - excellent genes, I suppose.  Between Depp, Brad Pitt (49), Tom Cruise (50) and George Clooney (52), it's looks like 50 is the new 30 for Hollywood leading men these days.  
Here's to one of Hollywood's most talented, versatile, crazy, down to Earth actors. Spanning from the hit TV series, 21 Jump Street to The Lone Ranger, out later this summer, this chameleon has done it all. He embodies every role he takes - transcending them if you will. He's done a fantastic job of making a career out of playing odd ball, lovable characters. And he does it with such grace and humility too, which is why he is one of the most beloved actors in the business.

He definitely oozes charm and charisma in everything he says and does, and we love him for that. But what's even more impressive is that he has the ability to make us forget we’re even watching a Johnny Depp movie. A true talent. You can definitely see he thoroughly enjoys his craft. 
He is without doubt one of my all time favorite actors and I look forward to seeing what's in store for him in the future. Thanks Johnny, for bringing us some of the best entertainment and talent Hollywood has to offer. Hats off to you!
Some of my all time favorite Depp movies include: Chocolat, Blow, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Benny & Joon, and the forever classic Edward Scissorhands. The birthday boy is currently filming  Transcendence and Into the Woods which will be released some time next year, 2014. 

What are some of your favorite Johnny Depp films?

I love reading this because you sound like you could be his agent. You Re so totally in love with him. I kinda hope some how he gets to see this review or birthday ode to him. It was really well written, and I can't believe he is 50. He is one great looking guy!

I wasn't impressed with Johnny Depp's responses. He seems too far out of "left field." What's your take???
