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!
Dear Readers: It is our dream that you read the captions to each photo and sing along as you read the following post reminiscing with us about the great celebrity couples of the past. Let yourselves feel the nostalgia, the heartache, the awkward, that our favorite celebrities must also feel when looking at these photos and remembering loves gone wrong. Get out your hankies readers cause this is going to show just how much Love Hurts.
Before the hectic days of shop-lifting and marrying French supermodels, Johhny Depp and Winona Ryder were a young “it” couple madly in love. Johnny Depp even got Winona’s name inked onto his arm “Winona Forever” which he later infamously changed to Wino Forever. R.I.P Johnny and Winona!
Who can forget this incredible celebrity couple! Julia was so in love with Kiefer that she ran away to a foreign country with his friend dyed her hair blonde to match his. That’s pretty low Julia Roberts. Better watch out for that karma now that you’re a practicing Hindu.
We know what you’re thinking readers: Did this really happen??!!! Maybe whoever organized this fancy event just sat Courtney Love at poor Edward Norton’s table because they figured he was enough of a gentleman not to instantly puke on her on sight. WRONG. They dated. And apparently were serious enough about each other to have this happen:
And do you remember this fabulous, young and in love celebrity couple?
That’s right Celebstalkers, before Joachim allowed mountain man beards, big freaking sunglasses, meaningless rants, and a fledgling rap career come in between him and his sexiness he was madly in love with Steven Tyler’s beautiful daughter Liv Tyler. We have faith in you Joachim! Get that sexiness back!
Before there was Robsten bringing the magic of Twilight alive, there was Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams making us believe that all that lovey-dovey, break-up and make-up, frustrated, passionate throw me against the wall and love me forever romance from the Notebook was possible. Look at these two MF’in hipsters in love…sigh….we miss you guys.
Carson and Jennifer went out. Then they broke up.
Who can forget Bennifer? Without Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck there would be no Robsten, there would be no Brangelina, there would be no reason to have ever filmed Gigli. Their love may not have lasted, but it was worth it for the gifts that they brought to us.
And now we move on to a celebrity couples walk down memory lane that needs its own category: It’s the Jenn-Brad-Angelina celebrity couple massacre.
Once upon a time of red velvet pants, grunge-rockers, chubby-faced Jennifer Anistons and it being acceptable to tie your leather jacket around your waist these two were a hot -hot item….
In a way Juliette Lewis, we feel sorry for you. But in a way we just can’t. You had this world-wide sex symbol all to your little self back in the day and you probably enjoyed the hell out of it. Yes, eventually Brad Pitt would move on to bang and settle down with two of the hottest women in Hollywood, but for one brief moment in time he was your man-candy and that was good enough for you…
He had an overwhelming fear of orange food and antique furniture. She had a vial of his blood on a chain around her neck. They did it in the car on the way to the red carpet and shared it with the world…then they got divorced and she married a much hotter guy. The End.
Remember this famous celebrity couple? Gwen and Brad may have been just a blip on the radar screen when compared to celebrity couples that have included Brad Pitt, but once these two love-birds shared everything from their hearts to their hairdresser…
Can you think of any celebrity couples that you’d like to have seen included here?
Are there any celebrity couples that you wish were still together?
