Johnny Depp’s good looks ruined by constant partying with Keith Richards


Do you remember where you were when you realized you were too old to stay out partying most of the night and still go to the work the next day?

Some of you may not have had that realization yet, but for the rest of us, it’s a grim step on the long ladder towards maturity.

Johnny Depp is apparently one of those who hasn’t given in to maturity yet, and it’s taking a toll on his looks. That’s unfortunate, because he is the Sexiest Man Alive, no matter what People magazine says.

Those eyes, those cheekbones…

Those eyes are apparently plenty bloodshot lately, because 47-year-old Johnny has reportedly been spending too much time with the High Priest of Partying, 66-year-old Keith Richards, in London.

Because of the partying, Johnny needs to dunk his head in a tub of ice water to get his “bloated face back into leading man form,” an eyewitness told The National Enquirer.

Johnny Depp has taken to dunking his head into a tub of ice water to recover from recent nights of drinking with his Pirates of the Caribbean co-star Keith Richards.

Depp, 47, and Richards, 66, have been boozing it up so much that the film crew has resorted to the morning-after ice treatments….”Johnny’s movie star good looks are completely wrecked after a night of drinking with Keith,” a set insider told The Enquirer. “It’s gotten so bad that Johnny wakes up and his pretty boy face is bloated from the boozing. Keith, who quit doing drugs in the late ’70s, still likes to drink, and he and Johnny have been overdoing it almost every night.”

It’s impossible to tell if the much-wrinkled Keith has had a rough night, “but with Johnny it’s very obvious,” said the insider. “That’s why the crew has a tub of ice ready for him every morning.”

Johnny’s rep denies he’s getting dunked in ice for his hangovers.

Keith is reprising his role as Captain Jack Sparrow’s father in the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film, but the two have been friends for over 15 years.

“Johnny and Keith’s friendship is based on a mutual respect for music, art — and drinking. Let’s just hope Johnny doesn’t end up looking like Keith when he gets older!”

[National Enquirer, print edition, November 29, 2010 issue]

Amen to that.

I thought Johnny looked a bit bloated in the previews for The Tourist, but I was hoping it was due to the facial hair.

Hopefully Johnny isn’t really is losing his looks now, after all his years of drugs and drinking. Tone it down with Keith, Johnny. Alternate alcohol and water. And cherish the sanctity of those cheekbones before they turn into jowls.

    J’adore Johnny’s cheekbones. They’ve always been one of my big attractions to him.

  2. di butler says:

    He looks horrible in those Tourist promos. I long for the days of “Blow.”

  3. mslewis says:

    This info is from the National Enquirer. I have nothing else to say.

  4. Boombeeba says:

    No I don’t remember when I was too old to go out partying all nite & had to wake up early to go to work bc I just turned 21 this yr (o_~)

  5. koala says:

    he’s 47… eventually, everyone’s looks fade a bit. he still looks pretty good to me.

  6. Raven says:

    One problem with that. Keith Richards has given up drinking since the first of the year. He still smokes cigarettes but no drinking. So if Depp is partying with Richards, he’s drinking alone. I know my eyes would be bloodshot just spending an evening in a smoky club, though.

  7. coucou says:

    Wonder who the teen twat is behind Keith, hope it’s one of his granddaughters or something…yeesh

  8. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Ohhhh baby, dont worry, you’ll never look bad to me ever ever. I will always love you!

    Now come have a drink with me… 😉

  9. CandyKay says:

    No idea if this story is true or not, but Johnny does look awful.

    It’s hard to be an aging leading man. You can end up looking better and better – Paul Newman, Sean Connery, Cary Grant – or so awful no one can remember ever thinking you were attractive.

    Exhibit A: Robert Redford, with his badly-dyed hair and botched eye job. And Kevin Costner and Warren Beatty and Jon Voight…

  10. REALIST says:

    Johnny’s “long time partner” got bent out of shape about Johnny’s sex scene with Angelina in “The Tourist”.

    Is she sitting this one out? I would be much more concerned about my significant other hanging out with a man who has a legendary history with drugs, booze, and cigarettes (btw, cigarette smoke actually degrades the collagen in your face, thus the “smoker’s face”) than I would about a scene that was written into the script of a movie. Johnny’s hanging out with Keith because he wants to, no professional demands there.

  11. tooey says:

    Sorry, but the photos do not support this story; he’s lookin’ fine to me. And I’d still hit a bloated, blood-shot-eyed Johnny ANY day of the week….

  12. Jen says:

    The guy is f’ing HOT and he doesn’t look bloated at all in any of these pics. I think it’s the Enquirer that’s bloated because it’s full of sh*t!

  13. Michael says:

    blagh they both look like wannabe rockstar mad hatters. & like they smell like cigarettes, BO, & vanilla scented incense sticks to cover up the smell of pot.

  14. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    @Michael, I will do Johnny anytime, anywhere anyhow regardless how he smells, looks or tastes.. that man is FINE!!!

    All kinds of fine…..

  15. Cheyenne says:

    @CandyKay: I think something is happening with Beatty beside simply getting older. Last photo I saw of him, he looked like he wasn’t tracking too well.

  16. Isabella says:

    I have seen Johnny Depp recently in real life and trust me, if you are not impressed by his pictures then you certainly would not be impressed with him in person. He looks better in pictures then in reality and that does not say much. He is so over-hyped I was actually really disappointed.

  17. e-non says:

    yeah, cause in this day and age your talent and life’s work mean nothing once you get a wrinkle or five…

  18. Kiska says:

    You can’t take the pretty out of Johnny. It is impossible.

  19. mylie1313 says:

    Maybe it is some kind of medication he is taking some medication bloats you up, hope he is okay.simply doesn’t seem like the ole Johnny Depp and his wife was afraid Angelina ws going to hit on him have she seen Brad Pitt lately? Now thats a hunk he is aging well Johnny Depp isn’t.

  20. junipergreen says:

    He was not bloated in The Tourist. He GAIN WEIGHT FOR THE ROLE. Jesus this seems to be a difficult concept to grasp for some people.

    I doubt he’s partying with Richards either. They probably pap’d them together this once and built a story out of it.

    To the person who stated his partner got bent out of shape about his sex scene with Angelina…c’mon, seriously? Is there any credible source for that story at all?

  21. Celestine says:

    The female is Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, the French actress playing a mermaid in Pirates 4. From the front she resembles Kate Moss a little.

    Johnny looks good here. In The Tourist, his character is supposed to be an average Joe. Keith quit drinking. They cut Keith’s wife, Patty, out of this picture – she’s recovering from cancer and looks fantastic!

  22. me says:

    Oh God! he looks so good in these pics with Keith and these are from september/october…he’s handsome

  23. Mizz Tickles says:

    That is harsh about Patty, I didn’t know that she had cancer. Keith’s shoes rock and Johnny looks like he’s trying too hard in the fashion dept.

  24. hannah says:

    e-non: Its a terrible thing isn’t it? he’s made a ton of awesome, iconic movies, but heaven forbid he ages…

    although with the drinking, shouldn’t it be more about the fact that he’s been a heavy drinker for decades and the impact that would have on the other aspects of his life as opposed to it making his face puffy? we all crucify the mothers who drink heavily as awful parents, but its ok for men to do this, unless it affects their pretty face.

  25. Kay says:

    What a pair of old wankers. Who do they think they are?

  26. Saoirse says:

    @ Di Butler-OMG, I’ve probably watched that movie a billion times and STILL to this day, the end makes me bawl my eyes out.
    Personally, I still think he looks great! Maybe not in that picture, but in others I’ve seen, he’s still rockin’! Keep up the great work, Johnny!

  27. Newbie says:

    a friend of mine met him on the set of the new pirates movie. he got some really up-close shots and posted them on facebook. johnny looked fantastic and seemed in a good mood. i think it’s just the tourist where he’s looking bloated. he looks fine to me in the above pictures, too.

  28. gemmaa says:

    Nothing will ever take the pretty or the party out of Mr Depp. He’s old school and thriving inside the Hollywood machine that is kinda the antithesis of how he lives his life – how HE wants to.

  29. Roxanne75 says:

    ugh, I can smell Johnny’s stinky hippy smell from here.

  30. samihami says:

    Love me some Johnny. He’s perfect just the way he is.

  31. Celestine says:

    @Kay: They’re prettier, richer, more talented, successful & interesting than you’ll ever be. They’ll be remembered long after they’re dead, unlike you, dear.

    @Roxanne: Keira Knightley said he always smells very nice, like French cologne.

  32. mina says:

    I don’t understand,the guy looks still really good to me ! Another rubbish story from NE.

  33. Amber C says:

    Doesnt the media just change things so they can get their 15 minutes of fame. FFS.
    Johnny is fine.
    Everybody parties and can have fun.
    They need REAL topics to fill out their days. Instead of topics on johnny’s blood shot eyes.
    Who believes this crap?

  34. R says:

    Depp is a wannabe. Please stop the ridiculous articles about him and Keith

    Keith knows who he is. Depp shoots hunter thompsons ashes put of a cannon with thompsons son there. Give me a f€€ing break.
