Is Johnny Depp Photoshopped in ‘The Tourist’ promotional images?


This is the first second promotional image from The Tourist, courtesy of an MTV Exclusive. The Tourist recently got its release date pushed up to December 10, which means that in no time whatsoever, we’re going to be getting some trailers and interviews and such, which I’m sure we’re all looking forward to (insert whatever side-eye you want). Anyway, Cinema Blend says Depp is Photoshopped to hell and back in this image… but is he really? Yes, he looks a bit “fresh” but it’s still Johnny Depp, you know? Ooh, here’s the real first image from The Tourist – I can’t remember if I’ve already shown this:


All in all, the momentum isn’t really building for this huge December release. I kind of think they should have just kept the old release date (February, I believe), because they could have really had time to build momentum. Now everything seems rushed, and this slow leaking of promotional images… well, it’s kind of non-starter. It just seems like “Two Pretty People Wander Around Venice And One Of Them Has Bangs Trauma.” What the f-ck is the actual plot? Dunno. Some mutterings of Depp playing “the tourist” who is going through some kind of personal crisis when he meets Jolie, and they get romantic, but it’s all a setup for something nefarious. Basically. Or, like I said, “Two Pretty People Wander Around Venice.” The only thing that is giving me hope that this is actually a really great film is the director – Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, who directed one of the best films of the past decade, The Lives of Others. We’ll see.

Oh, one more thing – Paul Bettany (who I adore) is also in The Tourist, and he recently gave a funny little interview about working with Depp and Jolie and his little man-crush: “’The Tourist,’ with two unknown actors called Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie… little indie movie… I think it was the first Paul Bettany movie they had ever been in and they were a little nervous. I sort of fell massively in love with Johnny Depp, who’s just one of the sweetest, funniest human beings you can possibly imagine. It’s so nice when you meet one of those people who make that much f–king cash, that you kind of go, ‘I’m really glad it happened to you.’ It’s awesome.” It’s even better with the accent:

Here are some un-’Shopped photos from the Venice set this past Spring:

    Is there no man whose hotness is enough to withstand Jolie’s vampirism? Depp has aesthetically jumped the shark in these photos and I fear there’s no way back. RIP prettiest man in Hollywood.

  2. I saw him in Venezia in 2007 and in april 2010 and he’s the most beautiful man I’ve ever seen!
    He’s so beatiful perfect face with incredibly deeply dark eyes and faboulous cheek bones (the best of the world)!

    He’s soo yummy

  4. Persistent Cat says:

    They Photoshopped him, they Photoshop everyone. We’ve discussed this. They removed the bags from under his eyes and probably other things. It’s only really terrible when the PS person to an unrecognizable degree. If it wasn’t PS’d, there’d be complaints about how rough they both look.

  5. CandyKay says:

    I’m not feeling the hair and beard. Too bad they couldn’t Photoshop those away.

    Depp looked pretty paunchy in some of the paparazzi swimsuit photos taken this summer.

    He’s also extremely brunette for someone in his late 40s. There may be a little Miss Clairol going on, there.

    I’m a Depp fan from way back, but it must be as hard to age when you’re a pretty man as it is when you’re a pretty women.

    Bangs Trauma, LOL!
    I agree, Persistent Cat, everyone gets photoshopped these days. Johnny still looks good, but to me his real appeal is his talent and the type of work he’s chosen to do in the past few years.

  7. Katalina76 says:

    I too love Paul Bettany. It’s nice to know he’s pretty funny and that out of the 2 actors he worked with, he had a crush on Depp!

    And I’d also like to say that one of the MANY things that makes me love Johnny Depp is that he seems to be aging naturally, therefore gracefully. No insecurity there and that is HOT.

  8. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Jolie is PS too. No one escapes it.

  9. lio says:

    Yes. He is never that clean in real life

  10. mln says:

    OK first off I am so into this movie.. I love Johnny whether or not they photoshopped him and eventhough he gained 20 lbs. And the fact that FVD(his name is way too long) is directing its like a clusterfuck but in a good way. I am so there. Paul Bettany’s little interview is hilarious.

  11. truthSF says:

    OMG, Jesus lives!!!

  12. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I am excited its being released earlier. I really didn’t wanna until next year. In terms of the plot and what the movie is about this movie is a remake, there really shouldn’t be to much question about the plot since its a remake. LOL A little side eye on that one. You can rent the original which is in another language but the plot is still the same.

    There is always retouching done but they don’t look so retouched that you don’t know who is who.

  13. bellebeesting says:

    If Angelina Jolie were not in this film, I’d definitely go there. And please. Before anybody starts that tiresome discussion, let me speak for myself: I was never a fan of hers. My opinion pre-dates the now infamous triangle. It has rarely been possible to see a single screen without seeing Jolie herself instead of the character she’s once again trying (and failing) to be. Gia and Girl Interrupted may be the two exceptions–but again, IMO, both those characters are closer to what she really seems to be…and she was able to blend those roles in a much less distracting way.

  14. aenflex says:

    Thought I read (here?) that Depp and Jolie actually didn’t get along on set. He didn’t care for her, it said. And I believe it. Some people are not attracted to blatant sexuality and mindgames. Look at Paradis, really look at her, and you will see she seems to be the polar opposite of Jolie, IMHO, anyway.

  15. Solveig says:

    Before and after he made this movie he wasn’t so bloated. Probably the character itself must be this way according to the script?, a middle-aged man not so good looking, that falls in love with an american brunette dressed with the grace of a garbage can and in muppets gloves.

  16. rita says:

    And who said that she was interested in him? God people thinks he’s god or what? She has Pitt and lots of kids why would she be interested in him as far as I am concerned, that woman raised a little boy by herself for 5 years without a man, she doesn’t need to run after every damn guy (leave that to the other hag aka JA). Besides, no matter what people think of AJ I think the fact that he has kids himself it’s off limits for her. Now, if he didn’t have kids, I wouldn’t bet on it ( this comes from a huge fan).

  17. missmilly says:

    Yes. And I have no interest in seeing these two in a movie…(so over it!)

  18. mln says:

    I honestly don’t think they hated eachother I think it was more the tabs making up a story that they hated eachother because they were pissed that they couldn’t say they were having an affair. I remember reading in VF that Pitt took Johnny’s kids fishing and in an interview for SALT Angie mentioned breifly meeting Johnnys’ girlfriend.

  19. OC lady says:

    Whatever–I’ll still see this movie. I don’t miss anything with Johnny Depp in it, except for that film he did with Roman Polanski. Now, that I won’t watch.

  20. Camille says:

    OC lady: Same here.
    I am looking forward to seeing this movie, even if it turns out to be crap lol.

  21. Tiffany says:


    I agree with you, ‘The Lives Of Others’ really is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time and I am looking forward to how his direction goes with American actors.

  22. Jeri says:

    Paul Bettany is funny & he’s right. Letterman & Paul (Letterman’s band leader Paul) said “Johnny Depp is the coolest person we’ve ever had on the show.” I think so too.

  23. Mistral says:

    He looks good to me, photoshopped or not.

  24. rogab says:

    He’s so beatiful perfect face with incredibly deeply dark eyes and faboulous cheek bones (the best of the world)!
