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!
While the clear winner of the night at this year’s People’s Choice Awards went to “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”, we were a little surprised at some of the awards that our favorite vamps and werewolves didn’t go home with.
Even though the cast made a pretty good sweep this year, Robert Pattinson didn’t do so well. Up for twp big awards, the sexy Brit who made Edward Cullen even hotter didn’t win either of them.
The first award, Favorite Movie Actor, went to Celebstalk’s Mougar of the Year, Johnny Depp…which I mean…come on…who beats Johnny Depp? As we were shown at the PCA, not even RPattz. The second awards, however, Rob lost out to Zac Efron for the Favorite Movie Star Under 25. Really?! Did anyone see Charlie St. Cloud?? We didn’t think so…
Even though he didn’t win, we still love you Rob and your castmates did pretty well. Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner went home with awards for Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite On-Screen Team. Eclipse also won Favorite Movie and Favorite Movie Drama.
Other big winners were “Glee”, “House”, Adam Sandler, Taylor Swift and Toy Story 3.
So what did you think of the show, Celebstalkers?
Ever since he first caught our gaze in Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street as the hottie who got sucked into the mattress, we’ve been dreaming of him! Since then, he has appeared in countless movies and television shows and has rapidly become the most swoon worthy celebrity in the universe! While that alone may give us enough reason to name him our Celebstalk Moug of the Year, we won’t stop there! Settle in for the most epic mougalicious post ever on Celebstalk!!
Mini Bio: Johnny was born in Kentucky and raised in Florida where he dropped out of high school at the age of 15 to pursue his dreams of becoming a rock star. After being introduced to Nicholas Cage, he decided to try his hand at acting and the rest is mougar history! Since, he has appeared in a myriad of roles ranging from the ultra-eccentric Mad Hatter and Edward Scissorhands to playing a real life druglord to the world’s most beloved pirate. He has been awarded People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive multiple times, has opened for Iggy Pop and Duran Duran and has a nightclub in Estonia named after him, which is quite a step up from selling ball point pens (which he did before he acted). Nowadays, he is one of the most famous, beloved and fantasized about male celebrities on the face of the Earth! We love you, Johnny, you mougalicious son of a bitch!
Why We Love Him (And Why You Should Too!): Hello! He’s JOHNNY FREAKING DEPP! Everyone loves this guy! Not only is he one of the most versatile actors in the history of the cinema, but he is also one of the most gorgeous! Almost anyone can be hot, but it takes something more to be THAT hot and still make you actually want to watch a movie and find out what happens. He is everything that you could ever want in a man. He has every big selling quality of all of our previous Moug’s in one beautiful package. He has the versatility that made us fall for Robert Downey Jr. in May, the perfect good looks and romance that made us crush for Edward Cullen in June, the sense of humor that made us rush to Rudd, the rugged good looks and strong body that made us beg for Gerard Butler, the distinguished, classic good looks of Gorgeous George in September, the class and sensitivity that made us crave Colin and the sexy mystery that we wanted from Denzel and more! There is no end to the things that we love about Johnny Depp, everything from his talent to his heart breaking good looks makes us love him and he has the personality to boot! He is the perfect man through and through and he just gets better every year.
His Mougability: This man can do anything! He takes everything you want and he makes it more than you could ever imagine! He is passionate, he is unique, he is multi-talented, he is sexy, he is sensitive, he is the “given.” It doesn’t matter who you are, where you are or what kind of man you like, you love Johnny and your man knows it. What’s better, is he can’t even be mad about it because he knows that’s just how it is. There has never been a woman on the face of the planet that has seen this man and not fell head over heels stupid in lust with him! And to top it off, he is really amazing at what he does. On a Friday night, you can pop in a Depp flick and be instantly entertained. Men want to be him, women want to be his slave. His is the total freaking package!
So Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’s Celebstalkers! We have had a lot of amazing Moug’s this year and Johnny takes the cake for Celebstalks 2010 Mougar of the Year! We love you Johnny! You were definitely worth the wait!!!
Wanna see more Depp? Hell yeah you do! Right now, you can catch him in theaters in his newest movie, The Tourist, where he costars with Angelina Jolie. He has at least 8 (that’s right Celebstalkers!!!) projects in the works, so we can tell you that you can expect to see much much more of him in the future! But until then….
