Johnny Depp at the LA premiere of ‘Dark Shadows’: oddly smooth & waxy?

The LA premiere of Dark Shadows went down two nights ago, but we missed covering the photos from the event yesterday (because of the Met Gala). So… even though these pics are kind of late, I hope you enjoy them. Because I’m seeing a lot of gossip-potential and gossip story lines here. First up, Johnny Depp. When I first glanced through the pics, I thought for sure that I was looking at Johnny’s wax figure. Right? His face looks really different/weird to me. Oddly smooth. I’m not screaming “BOTOX!” but it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that Depp has had a little something done. Maybe a chemical peel? Some kind of laser treatment? He’s also gotten a tan – he’s been working out in sun, I think, on The Lone Ranger. Other than that… this is the face of a mid-life crisis.

Next up: Eva Green! I still believe the rumors that Johnny and Eva might have had an affair while filming Dark Shadows, and that they might still be engaged in a little something. Eva and Johnny took pains not to pose together. Eva looks kind of crazy, but I think that’s her “look.” She actually IS crazy/beautiful.

Here’s Bella Heathcote. That name may sound familiar to you. Not only is she in Dark Shadows, but she was also had a part in a Brad Pitt film, which shot last year. The tabloids tried to make it sound like Bella and Brad had an affair – go here to read the old story. She does look a little bit like Angelina. I’d like to see what she looks like without those damn bangs.

Chloe Moretz… she’s a pretty girl. I like that she’s covered up on top.

I’m pretty sure Michelle Pfeiffer is a vampire. For real.

I apologize to all of you who don’t understand my Jonny Lee Miller obsession, but good GOD I love this man. He’s so sexy (to me).

    perhaps depp lost some weight? his face looks way thinner to me. and love eva’s dress!

    • Eve says:

      Yup, I think he’s lost some weight.

    • Maguita says:

      I think he depuffed from alcohol abuse. Let’s face it, he was photographed partying too much, and stumbling around drunk. His face showed it, it had the bloated look of over-indulgence.

      Good for him, and his children.

      • Eve says:

        I think he depuffed from alcohol abuse.

        That, too.

      • Agnes says:

        i didn’t think of that – good point.

      • bns says:

        I was gonna say this.

        He probably took those damn glasses off and took a good look at his bestie Keith Richards. That’ll set anybody straight.

      • Eve says:

        He probably took those damn glasses off and took a good look at his bestie Keith Richards. That’ll set anybody straight.


        I swear I come here for the comments (more than anything else).

      • Maguita says:

        LOL @bns. So true. But Keith is still alive and kicking it though, same could not be said for drug and alcohol abusers half his age! Especially those with “prescription” drugs 😉

      • bns says:

        @Eve – me too! You guys crack me up everyday 🙂

        @Maguita – Keith is of a different species. It’s remarkable. We’ll all die before he does.

  2. Chatcat says:

    Again, like Brad Pitt, a man of my exact age, you would think would impress me and doesn’t. The only thing smooth about him is his Botox or whatever filler he has used. I do see something in JLM that would pull you in…perhaps he isn’t as douchy as say Pitt, Depp, Clooney, etc…

  3. Beth says:

    Jonny Lee Miller’s wife (?) looks like a trannie

    • Jessica says:

      Beth, you took the words right out of my mouth….

    • Katren says:

      That’s the first thing I thought when I saw the photo!

    • Agnes says:

      i think it’s the sequined dress – very drag queen performance outfit. but she lacks the drag queen va-voom! 🙂

      • Eleonor says:

        Also her hair,it seems she is wearing a wig! She reminds me of Terence Stamps as Bernadette in the Priscilla Movie!

      • autumndaze says:

        Her wig looks so bad because he cut a chunk out of it to use for himself….

    • Amy says:

      I always thought Michele Hicks was so pretty when she started modelling (and in the movie Twin Falls, Idaho), but she hasn’t aged well. At all.

    • Meanchick says:

      Bingo! LOL!

  4. Eve says:

    Depp looks good to me. Now Green…that first picture is very unflattering. I’ll never get (seriously, it’s beyond me) why her make-up is usually so f*cking hideous.

    • polk8dot says:

      I think she seriously does her makeup herself, in front of a bathroom mirror, in bloody darkness, LOL. There is no other explanation for her ALWAYS looking like a fricking disaster. There has not been one premiere, one event, where she looked pretty, nice, and/or done professionally. ALWAYS CRAZY!
      Plus I will never understand why she is called beautiful? There is not one single pretty feature on her face, and the whole thing put together looks like a haphazard mishmash. Hideous!

      • Eve says:

        That’s how bad her make-up is: I think she is beautiful, but the colours, the style…they all make her look bad.

        For instance, there’s at least one scene in Casino Royale — the one in the bathroom, right before the first poker match — where she looks like she’s not wearing make-up (or, more likely, she’s made up to look like she’s not) and you can see she has some beautiful facial features.

        Whoever does her make-up does a poor job indeed and should be arrested.

      • Veruca says:

        @polk8dot —

        I agree to a point. She’s not unattractive, but I’m not seeing ”beautiful” at all.

    • Willow says:

      Totally agree with Eve. I can’t even find “unconventional beauty” in her or her acting. Her talents must lie elsewhere to have made it this far in film.

  5. Loulou says:

    Michelle Pfeiffer is so classy.

    • Rhea says:

      The face is ageless…

      • mel says:

        She is so gorgeous…sigh

      • HadlyB says:

        I would love her plastic surgeons number. He did really well.

        Very good work and yes she has had work done for many many years .. it’s always better to start earlier with little here and there as times goes on than do a whole makeover at 50 like Madonna.

    • carrie says:

      if Nolan had able to cast her as Cougar Catwoman…
      i guess also that my idea of Catman and his idea of Catwoman are different

  6. original almond says:

    Whenever I see Depp I cannot, for the life of me, take him seriously because all I can see is him in the mirror putting on all those baubles and trinkets.
    It just kills it for me. Add to that the eyeliner and the 2000 era glasses and I’m veering towards LMAO. No swooning from this corner.

    • polk8dot says:

      ‘This is the face of a midlife crisis’.

      Bwahahahhahahaah!!!!! Best line ever about Depp! And spot on.

    • mary simon says:

      Totally agree with original almond. He comes off as a guy who’s too fussy with his look, with the exception of not seeming to care about washing his hair. He’s trying to hide the bags under his eyes with his “cool shades”, but you can see the the bags anyway.

    • OlsenTriplet says:

      100% agree. There is nothing attractive about him in any way. Consider…

      -Colored glasses.
      -15 flea-market necklaces on one neck
      -15 flea-market rings on 10 fingers
      -Fake accent
      -Distant, drugged out persona
      -Greasy bob haircut parted in the middle

      In a world where the Fassdong exists, how is this Johnny Derp taken seriously? Unless we’re profiling for pedophiles, of course.

    • autumndaze says:

      All of this; his support of Roman Polanski is what pushed me into the light. I just look at him now and slowly shake my head in a mixture of pity and disgust.
      He needs to evolve and is incapable of doing so externally or internally.

  7. Krock says:

    OMG he DOES look waxy. He used to be so cute but lately not so much. He tries too hard yanno?

    And Michelle Pfifer is stunning as always. *sigh* wish I had her genes.

  8. Princess Lizabeth says:

    Eva Green makes me think a little of Juliette Lewis.

    • Maguita says:

      Spot on!

      They both have that crazy cooky style that surprises people. They’re outside the box of “normal beauty”, and are most of the time quite fascinating.

      As for Johnny Lee Miller, I’ve had the hots for him since I first saw his bleach-blond head in TRAINSPOTTING. There is something about those men with that kind of large forehead coupled with the deep eyes… Like Christopher Maloni. You don’t know why, but they are very hot.

      BTW, can’t wait to see Meloni sink his teeth in someone’s inner thigh this season. Hope they sexually take advantage the shit out of him on that True Blood.

  9. Hautie says:

    What I see with Michelle Pfeiffer… is she has been very careful with whatever procedures she has had done.

    Nothing crazy over the top. But her eyes look like they may have had a little tuck. (AND THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.)

    Poor Johnny. This is what happens when a man known for looking dirty all the time… finally takes a shower and shaves. People think he has spent time in the plastic surgeons office! hahaha!

    Remember how pretty Depp was in the early years. He has done everything possible to hide the pretty for the last 20 years. And it worked. He takes time to do some grooming and he is accused of Botoxing his face. 🙂

    And I am sorry but someone must have hated Eva Green. That makeup is horrible. She is not exactly a pretty girl. But dang. That eye shadow and lip color is awful.

    Is it me… or does Johnny Lee Miller’s wife look like Elijah Wood in a wig? Seriously. Is she related to Elijah Wood?

    • polk8dot says:

      About 6 months ago there was a set of pics making rounds of Michelle Pfeiffer at some event or what-not. She looked really jacked up. I thought ‘holy shit, what a shame! Is nothing sacred anymore?’ I was certain she totally ruined her face then. But right afterwards she disappeared from public view, and this is the first time in a while she’s back. And apparently whatever procedure she had done, by now settled in. You can’t see any crazyness anymore, and the face looks stunningly beautiful, like she did all her career, just a bit ‘youth kissed’. I’m so happy for her. I was truly worried she was going to come out with cat eyes or worse, LOL.
      Plus, her body is banging. Look at her neck and arms. That is where the age shows first and most on women. Yet she looks fantastic!

      Earth to Demi Moore: that is how you do it!

  10. Sam says:

    Depp looks like he smells, what else is new?
    Oh, and a shampoo can make wonders….

  11. Little Darling says:

    JLM is the tallest drink of water my eyes feast upon….and quite a brilliant actor as well. And full of class for being the original husband and keeping mum and respectful. He’s a class hot act all around.

  12. Eleonor says:

    Who is the trannie with Johnny Lee Miller?
    And Eva Green: you were right you look like a mess.
    The best one is Michelle Pfeiffer.

    • Lauren says:

      God, that was my first thought when I saw that picture of Johnny Lee Miller. That’s a dude next to him right?

      • polk8dot says:

        His wife is actually quite pretty in real life.
        This dress, the color and the sequins, are making for a nasty combination, especially with her coloring. The way the red carpet is lit up, makes the sequins reflect green on her underchin and neck, and adds an alien vibe to a normal looking face. And the hair looks like there was huge air moisture problem – like she ran thru rain, or a vapor cloud in the sauna on her way in.
        But he is great, and they are happy together, so what is a little makeup/dress up mishap to them?

  13. SamiHami says:

    I love Depp, but he seems less attractive somehow since his breakup with Vanessa Paradis. I never realized that part of his appeal to me was that he was a hot, A list actor that was able to maintain a loving relationship and stable family life. Now that he’s thrown that away he just seems…I don’t know quite how to say it. He seems … less than what he used to be.

    • mary simon says:

      I feel the same way. He has lost something and he doesn’t look that good to me anymore, either.

  14. lower-case deb says:

    Michelle! omg. those eyes. (hahaha, i just realized that i’m obsessed with beautiful eyes). but omg.

    *melts in a puddle*

    • polk8dot says:

      The Bella Heathcote’s eyes (and face’ must make you week at the knees, yeah?
      I think her little face is so freshly, innocently gorgeous – like Michelle used to be when she started out…

      • lower-case deb says:

        i agree, somewhat. 🙂
        other times, yes. but this time, her bangs just took all the attention away.
        i have to actually “remember” what her eyes look like, instead of seeing it directly from the picture.

        but, i agree. those are some eyes, she has.

  15. Becky says:

    Johnny lee miller is sooooo sexy

  16. Al says:

    Depp has hangover face!!

  17. Alexis says:

    Depp does nothing for me. I don’t think he’s attractive and I don’t like his personality. Now it looks like he’s gotten work done.

  18. Julie says:

    johnny just took a shower.

  19. dorothy says:

    Depp seems to be in a downward spiral since his break from Vanessa. Sad, he seemed like such a devoted family man. Kind of changes my opinion of him.

  20. mia girl says:

    Oh Johnny Depp… I was SUCH a fangirl for him, but like so many others, I am just over the “theater of the absurd” approach in all his roles/film choices.

    I almost can’t even see him as a man anymore, he’s like this other being that exists only to portray himself in eccentricities (if that make sense to anyone). At this point, its like he holds no appeal to me as a man or an artist anymore. I can’t even work myself up to get excited about any of his movies.

    What I wouldn’t give to see him in a role that has emotional complexities, drama and adult themes. But maybe he is incapable of playing or wanting those kinds of roles anymore. It’s too bad.

    Oh, and yea, he looks kinda of waxy.

    • Riana says:

      I thought the same thing. Kenn Aniston gets a lot of hate for it, but is consistently playing the same wacky kooky character any less annoying?

      It’s almost like without face paint and a bad wig we’d see that he really can’t act so he’s afraid to take those roles anymore.

      Do a film where you’re a single Dad struggling with past child abuse and alcoholism. Make me believe again Johnny!

    • Informed says:

      Apparently you’ve never seen Depp in The Libertine. You should check it out.

  21. carrie says:

    i like Chloe Moretz here:she looks like a normal teen

  22. Anmelt says:

    I dunno, Johnny Depp’s boho thing seems more like a pretentious act to me. Maybe he did have botox, after all it sounds like he is going through some mid-life crisis. To me he is so overrated, though he was really cute in 21 Jump Street.

  23. mel says:

    Personally…I’m excited to see this movie…I laugh every time I see a preview…so do my daughters. I like campy movies. I’ve never been a huge fan of his grunge look that is 20+ years out of date…so he is eh to me. Love Bella’s dress – gorgeous. Johnny Lee…SWOON!!! Chloe..very cute. Johnny’s wife..maybe a bad picture?

  24. Gabrielle says:

    Johnny looks so hot here. it looks like he lost weight. No Vanessa though…

  25. ladybert62 says:

    Why does Johnny always dress like a slob? He has such a beautiful face and when he does bother to dress up, he looks great!

    I dont think Eva is pretty at all but I do like her dress.

    The reviews I have read for this movie say it is awful.

  26. BW says:

    Greasy hair and DANDRUFF.

  27. MommaK18 says:

    This may sound odd but if Johnny could do a Leonardo look for once it would help! A fitted suit…his hair slicked back, clean shaven….and lose the million rings, necklaces, hankerchiefs, bracelts etc…he would look so much better. He was on Ellen yesterday and when he comes on stage it just makes me roll my eyes because of all his “trinkets” and such. I mean seriously, how long does it take for him to add all his extra junk on??

    Can you imagine getting it on with Johnny?
    “Hold on let me take off all my jewlery and my suspenders and my 55 different rings…”

  28. Heather says:

    Eva looks like Hell.

  29. Shelly says:

    Johnny looks hot to me.

  30. Mara says:

    Eva is a very beautiful woman i really like her dress very sexy.

  31. phlyfiremama says:

    Michelle Pfeiffer & Angelina Jolie=the most beautiful women in the world, IMO.

  32. ZenB!tch says:

    Depp was on Jimmy Kimmel last night. Goodness that man is annoying. He’s turned into the male Madonna with the horrible affected Britishesque accent. UGH!

    No wonder any movie where he isn’t hidden behind a ton of make-up tanks. *SHUDDER*

  33. Adrien says:

    Johnny makes me laugh. I never tire of his kooky mannerisms and deadpan delivery.

  34. Mila says:

    Eva looks sexy and sultry.
    I really like her dress and whole look.
    And obviously i am probably only one.

  35. novaraen says:

    Well whatever it is…Johnny looks shag-able again. 🙂

  36. bns says:

    Forget all of them (except Michelle Pfeiffer). Where is the real star, Helena Bonham Carter???

  37. Irishae says:

    Eva Green is breathtakingly beautiful. It is a great tragedy that she usually insists on looking like its 1854. This particular look is an improvement, I guess, but there are few famous people who need a stylist more than this woman.

  38. Ginger says:

    Eva is gorgeous but she doesn’t style herself well
    at all

  39. jesstar says:

    I cant believe I’m going to say this about Depp but…gross.

  40. foozy says:

    love jonny & johnny

  41. jellyfish says:

    Eva is a gorgeous woman but her makeup looks terrible here.

  42. skuddles says:

    Glad to see him looking more like the hot Johnny Depp I remember 🙂

  43. Miffy says:

    I don’t think he wears enough jewellery.

  44. Industrytime says:

    Woooow!! Johnny looks HOT again!
    I think he lost weight?
    And, by the way, I saw pictures of him and Eva posing together at the premiere…they looked totally normal!

  45. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    Very sick and tired of this very affected bo-ho chic look of his. Too many gee gaws. Men shouldnt be this aware of their personal style. I mean give me a break please.
    Shave, slick back your hair, loose the jewry and……return to your family…..I was once an ardent fan…, Im just sickand tired of him.

  46. blasted1 says:

    All of you anti-Depp people need to get over his breaking up with what’s-her-face. It happens. It’s called “life”. Sometimes you make it, sometimes you don’t. He is no less an actor than he was before. If you don’t like his acting, that’s one thing. As for me, he’s looking better and healthier. Did you ever stop to think that maybe an unhappy love-life might stress somebody out to the point that they would start drinking again?! Whatever it was, he looks hotter and happier.

  47. Girlygirl410 says:

    Johnny looks better than he has in the last year. However, his hair line is in a recession, like the economy. He is totally trying to hide it with the bob haircut. I even think the top is thinning, could there be some extensions in there? Could this greasy look be a result of hair loss for a man in his late 40’s? This is normal but not normal for Hollywierd. I just hope he hires a tupee hair maker better than John Travolta’s!!

  48. Darlene says:

    Did anyone see him on Ellen? His hair looked thin and his teeth were a mess – even one looking like it was missing! I thought, this man is falling apart w/o his family. I remember when he wore those beaded bracelets his kids made and how it was ALL about his family, his relationship and it was “them” against the world. I’m really worried for him.

    Also, on another topic, I do not find Eva Green attractive at all.

  49. ashleigh depp says:

    his face isnt waxy, or greasy or anything, i touched his face at the uk dark shadows premiere and it felt like a normal face, a very handsome and beautiful face, he hasnt had any work done either he has lost weight he went on a diet to play barnabas collins, and he still looks beautiful and he is beautiful, hes just a blessed man he hasnt had any chemical treatment and yes, hes been in the sum working on lone ranger and out and about so hes obviously going to be tanned.. i love him also when a photo is taken, they choose the worst picture out of the lot, but i still think hes hot, i always have, but dont judge him on how he looks even though it is very nice, dot judge him because at heart he is a really nice guy, and hes very sweet and he loves his family and he loves his fans, at the UK premiere he was wearing the braclets his kids made him i saaw them when he was signing my depp bag dont think he hast got them on just because hes wearing long sleeves
