Happy Birthday, John Christopher “Johnny” Depp II (June 9, 1963)
HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY, JOHNNY DEPP! This is a momentous day and I just wanna say thank you for all things you’ve done, for all your films and characters. You’re my life, love and inspiration. You made me better and I’m very grateful to you for it. I don’t even imagine my life without you.
« It took me a very long time to get used to being a public figure - or maybe not used to it exactly, but to accept it and recognize that it wasn’t such a bad thing. I needed some years to grow up and not take it all so seriously. Let’s face it. I wasted a lot of years being dumb! It was only getting together with Vanessa and having the kiddies that gave me a sense of perspective. These days… well, there are probably still shades of ignorance in there, but I’m not being dumb 24 hours a day anymore. »
