Happy Birthday Johnny Depp! Today, Celebstalk tips their hats to the mougariffic dish that is you! Some may be wondering why, of all the celebrity birthdays throughout the year, would we make an extra special post just for Johnny? Ummm….because he’s JOHNNY FREAKING DEPP! Besides, you don’t think Celebstalk would have let our 2010 Mougar of the Year slip by without notice on his 47th birthday, do you? Of course not! Lets journey back through the years to celebrate Johnny!
It all started way back in the 80’s when Nick Cage helped Johnny get into the acting biz. His first big role was in A Nightmare on Elm Street where he played sexy jock Glen Lantz and was sucked into the mattress and pulled into our hearts. Glen never saw it coming….and neither did we.
Fast forward a few years to a little show called “21 Jump Street” where Johnny played badass cop Tom Hanson for 3 years. He was tough, sexy, somewhat believable as a cop from the wrong side of the beat, he had handcuffs and women all across America wanted a strip search. Grrrr!
Over the next 4 years, Johnny stayed busy taking on blockbusters like Edward Scissorhands (where he first met Winona Ryder and Tim Burton-who he would go on to star in multiple projects), Benny & Joon, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (with then nearly unknown Leonardo DiCaprio) and Ed Wood. While there still were a few nonbelievers out there, in 1994, Johnny took a role that would skyrocket him to the top of the mougar charts.
Don Juan DeMarco. In all his open shirt, bronzey chested, spanish accent glory. This was the role that had women across the world losing their shit. This would be the first of the many roles Johnny would take that would send out hearts pacing and our minds reeling over his hotness. Did Johnny have lines in the movie? Sure. He was the star, wasn’t he? Did we hear any of them? No. No we did not.
Since 1994, Johnny has starred in over 30 more mind-numbingly hot roles where he has demonstrated his talent as an actor and as one of the most magnificent mougars who has ever walked this planet. Chocolat, Blow, Pirates of the Caribbean, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Public Enemies, Alice in Wonderland and The Tourist (with Angelina Jolie) are just a few of the amazing works we’ve seen throughout the years from Johnny and luckily for us, much more is to come. Just a few projects on the horizon for one of our favorite mougs includes The Rum Diary, Dark Shadows and a cameo in the upcoming 21 Jump Street movie where Johnny will be reprising his role of the hunky handcuff carrying Tom Hanson. Right now, you can see Johnny in theaters for his fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean where he returns as the eccentric, charming and sexy Captain Jack Sparrow. For a guy who used to sell pens for a living, Johnny’s doing pretty damn good.
So, Johnny, we raise our glasses to you and all your hotness. We’ve come a long way, baby! Happy Birthday!
