Johnny Depp v. Armie Hammer at ‘The Lone Ranger’ premiere: who looked better?

Here are some photos from this weekend’s LA premiere of The Lone Ranger. I imagine this movie is going to make a crazy amount of money. I imagine that there will be little boys imitating Johnny Depp’s Tonto all summer. And I’m not sure how to feel about that.

Anyway, I didn’t think any of these people looked really good or really bad at the premiere. Johnny seems to have lost weight, and his face has thinned out a bit. He looks good, I guess, and he’s got those genes where he still looks much younger than he actually is. I’m pretty much over him as a person though. I don’t actively dislike him or anything, I just don’t feel much of anything looking at him. The jewelry is too much. It feels like his crotch is wearing a charm bracelet.

But I think Johnny is dressed better than Armie Hammer. Armie’s pants are too tight! You can get away with that kind of fit if you’re wearing jeans, but not suit trousers. And the fabric has a pinkish sheen, right? Or am I just imagining that? That’s a bold choice, wearing what amounts to a pink suit on the carpet for The Lone Ranger. Also: he should have shaved. He’s a good-looking guy (kind of goofy, but handsome), but he should be “the groomed one” to Johnny Depp’s charm-bracelet crotch.

I’m also including photos of Johnny and Armie’s costars Ruth Wilson and Barry Pepper. YES, that is Barry Pepper. I’m hoping whatever is happening there is for a role and not how he looks now. As for Ruth, I think she’s immensely talented but she can’t dress. At all. Last thing: Helena Bonham Carter wasn’t there! BOO.

    Johnny looks unusually clean, but I really like what Armie is wearing. I was VERY much into him after The Social Network – the Winklevi were my favorite part. Not sure if he is still on my Freebie 15 list.

  2. Rachel says:

    Aaaahhh tapered pink pants! Aaaaahhhh Barry Pepper’s hair! I’m not sure which is worse…

    No. I know. The tapered pink pants. No man should wear tapered pants. Ever.

    • V4Real says:

      I was wondering whatever happened to Barry Pepper, now I’m kinda sorry I asked.

      JD is still an attractive man I just lost some of my lust for him. It’s all due to his unkept look and lack of hygiene but he looks good here. I’m assuming he just walked the red carpet and exited through the backdoor and met up with everyone at the afterparty. He said he doesn’t watch his own movies.

      • Rachel says:

        It’s just a haircut V4real! We can fix that. I watched Snitch last weekend, and I have to admit, he was the only reason I kept watching. Even though he looked like a strung out crackhead.

        This pic made me wonder if he’s starring in a Kurt Cobain biopic.

      • Jade says:

        lol he should! because most of them suck. ugh I wont be seeing this trash either. I think ground looked better than these ugly men

      • alex says:

        if they suck they wouldn’t make lots and lots of money would they? he doesn’t watch them because he doesn’t like watching himself, he is not selfie

  3. Kaye says:

    Armie Hammer is a pretty, pretty man. I’d hit it.

    • RocketMerry says:

      Yeah, he’s pretty. his wife is beautiful, too.

      I just LOVE how they look like they belong in a fairy-tale: him as the day-saving charming prince, her as the hot-and-badass evil queen. Cute.

    • Liv says:

      I hoped so much that he’d be Finnick! Such a shame.

    • Sassy says:

      Armie is gorgeous and 6’5″. Wife must be a tall person also.

  4. marie says:

    I really want to say Johnny but he still looks like he smells bad, of cigarettes.

    I would never have guessed that was Barry Peppers, I don’t think I’ve ever seen him with long hair.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I’m starting to feel bad for Johnny.
      I want to find him sexy like I did for so long but the *aging rock star* look that he’s so fond of is really icing my biscuits.

      Not a fan of Hammer either-I’m not into Ken Doll. Really, none of these dudes are doing it for me….

      • GiGi says:

        I kind of only love Johnny in movies these days. I just watched Dark Shadows (finally) over the weekend- he definitely does it for me in character… just not this Keith Richards character.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Completely agree, Gigi.

        His off-screen life doesn’t make him any less of a talented actor who almost always brings a level of attractiveness to his roles.

      • Liv says:

        I just realized what I liked most about him – Vanessa Paradis. That’s gone and so is my admiration.

  5. Caulfield says:

    Johnny is better. Actually, he is the best

    • Jane says:

      I second that notion!

    • Meaghan says:

      I used to think he was sooo hot, and he is still good looking but I just don’t have that thing for him I used to.

      In these pics it makes me think he’s trying to pull off Robert Downey Jr, but his own spin on it with all the jewelery. Makes me laugh.

      I dont not respect him, he still pulls off great movies and has done nothing douchey, I guess I’m just bored with him?

    • Stubbylove says:

      Johnny’s my guy along with Jason Bateman and Robert Downey Jr. – probably cuz I grew up watching these guys on TV/movies. Can’t wait to see this movie – Johnny is part Native American Indian which I’m sure contributed to a great Tonto!

  6. Jackson says:

    Well Johnny looks clean and groomed and is sans scarves and bandanas so for him it is a huge style win. I can’t remember the last time he looked so….clean.

  7. ladybert62 says:

    So when Depp walks, his crock jingles?

    He has gotten gross.

    • Anonny says:

      He’s starting to look a little Mickey Rourke-ish. And not the “9 1/2 Weeks” Mickey Rourke either…

  8. Denise says:

    Is Ruth Wilson no longer with Jude Law? Is that such old news that this detail wasn’t mentioned? Probably.

    Arm & Hammer’s wife is very skinny and doing that thing with her jaw, I thought she was Keira Knightley at first, though she would never wear that.

    The crotch jewelry, ugh! Can’t Johnny leave the house without crap hanging off him? Does he have magnets under his clothes or something?!

  9. lisa2 says:

    The thing that I found funny/interesting was ALL those Disney Show stars were at the premier.

  10. tabasco says:

    Armie Hammer looks like a complete tool in that pink bunny suit and then we’ve got Mr. Dual Finger Guns? Johnny Depp, all day, every day.

  11. Vine says:

    I agree about Barry Pepper. Let’s hope he’s playing Jesus in a Passion play at a community theater somewhere as an act of charity or something. He’s very talented and good looking. That picture looks like he is trying really hard to look homeless in the face

  12. Madpoe says:

    well I guess the crotch jewelry does draw ones eyes there…lol

  13. Bizzyb says:

    Depp looks fantastic for 50.

  14. neelyo says:

    I think this movie is going to bomb. Does anyone care about The Lone Ranger?

    • Chicagogurl says:

      Not the way they did it, surely. I gre up watching reruns with my grandparents and for the longest time, I thought it was still on the air becuase it played so much. Surely I can’t be the only person in their early 30’s who remembers watching this show often.

  15. Chordy says:

    Maybe I’m still drunk from the weekend, but I think this is one of the most adorable red carpets for a premiere in a while. Everyone had a little fun with the fashion (I’m sorry but I love Armie Hammer’s pink suit), nobody is taking themselves too seriously, Depp dialed back the douche a bit, and RUTH! WILSON!

  16. Tig says:

    I think A Hammer is so good looking in the classical sense. This suit would like cartoonish on anyone else, but he comes very close to pulling it off.

    I do love his wife’s shoes- any info on them?

    Will prob see this movie just for the Silver sequences with the train- horse looked great in the trailer! LOL! Ready for more explosions as has been a month since Star Trek and IM3.

  17. Toot says:

    Lone Ranger looks on the level of Will Smith’s Wild Wild West to me, which was a stupid movie.

    No one looks good to me.

    • cake says:

      believe me its not. some critic said it has absulotely nothing to do with that movie

  18. Zinjojo says:

    Johnny also needs to just step away from the bronzer. It’s all too, too much.

  19. doofus says:

    Depp looks better than he has lately, but still douchey. but ever since he defended the child drugger/rapist, I just can’t.

    Armie is a cutie, but a little too “generic” cute for my tastes. and yes, his wife DOES resemble Knightly – I also thought it was her.

  20. Bubulle says:

    Lone ranger looks like good entertainment to me, hell if the GG and WWZ can make money I can’t see why this one can’t, that said JD has aged a lot , I know he’s 50 but he’s not hot anymore.

    • cake says:

      depp hasn’t aged a bit he’s hotter than ever and most men his age dreams of looking like that

  21. Stef Leppard says:

    Johnny looks try-hard. Someone needs to tell him he’s 50 and he’s not named Miley.

    • wanda says:

      how is he trying hard? he is wearing an elegant simple suit which makes him look like a 70yrs old!

  22. Nina says:

    Those pants are atrocious. Here Mr. Hammer, let me help take them off you.

  23. Maggie says:

    Johnny looks good! At least he doesnt have long blonde extensions.

  24. DeltaJuliet says:

    Not feeling the Armie love. He’s just a little too “soft”, a little too pretty for me.

  25. ShakenNotStirred says:

    I really love Depp’s suit. It’s very Public Enemies and it fits him well. I agree about the jewelry and hanging things. It’s too much.

  26. Ally says:

    i´m so over with Johnny Depp. Once i was a fan, but now he looks and acts so mainstream. He plays the same grazy guy in every disney blockbuster…

  27. Melanie says:

    What’s with the all the coldness towards Depp? Yes, that piece of jewellery is wrong but he’s been doing it for years and frankly it’s just distracting, bad fashion that he’s always suffered from but no damper. He’s still a handsome man, alluring, cleaner here than the usual and yes I’m feeling the attraction I’d always had for him again. He’s always had some issues but is still the same likable guy seemingly generous to fans and people around him..

    Sorry, I’m not feeling the cold vibe and I usually go with the opinions on this site. This whole ‘not feeling it for Depp’ act just seems silly. It’s like we’ve loved him for long enough, he’s 50 now, so let’s just give him the cold shoulder just to spice up things. Just fickle. I know it’s a gossip site but I’m losing interest in Celebitchy’s take on Depp. Disappointing. Not that his fame is suffering in the least and he’s still on my list.

    Armie Hammer isn’t my type though good-looking but yes, he should shave. Not having much problem with the suit though. I’m not sure what to make of this movie as yet but even if it turns out to be any good hopefully there won’t be a franchise. POTC was more than enough.

    • binturong says:

      +1000 Melanie. The Johnny-hate seems really forced to me. I just don’t get it.

      I have to say, in the photos that Lainey has in her column he looks terribly uncomfortable in many of them. I do think he looks physically good, and is dressed much better than usual, but he seems a bit awkward and unhappy. Maybe I’m just reading in something that’s not there, but he never used to look like that at premieres, although he’s often said that he dislikes them.

      • Bubulle says:

        It’s not forced for at all, JD used to be an exciting artist and a cool family guy, now he is just a greedy greasy actor going through a middle age crisis and it’s just unappealing at least for the non die hard fans, I think RDJ represents now what he used to be.

      • Mala says:

        The “awkward and unhappy” thing it’s only because he doesn’t like to pose for photographers (well, he has been really vocal about how much he hate to pose for pictures)

        If you see his clips and other pictures at the premieres (and even his promotional event with the press the last week) he really looks calm, relaxed and happier than he has been in years

        I think that’s the main problem with Johnny. He is like translucent to his personal life. Like his appearence reflect the state of his private life completely.

        His worst look and appearence in years, was around 2010-2011 (he looked terrible, bloated and all bad after “The Tourist”) he was drunk, speaking stupid things in interviews, etc

        After his divorce (the real, not the official announcement). he started to look really good (around Dark Shadows premieres) it was like the stressful situation between him and Vanessa was gone at that moment.

        And now he looks great again, he stopped drinking alcohol for over a year and half, he’s being nice with the press again and his stupid comments just aren’t there anymore.

        Is Johnny Depp, his usual self again, and I’m glad.

      • Jade says:

        If you like RDJ better now that’s totally fine. I love Iron Man franchise but I don’t understand what is artsy about it or RDJ for that matter. Besides RDJ has been through darkness and we never know for sure how real his coolness is.

        Depp is certainly greedy with the POTC franchise but when it comes to Burton it’s more out of loyalty. Burton was responsible for keeping him afloat with Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood or Sleepy Hollow when his brand wasn’t selling this much. Dark sahdows was bad but seriously what was even mainstream about it? Infact it was a bolder movie compared to Sleepy Hollow or Alice and the fact it wasn’t so mainstream was the reason of it’s lull box-office performance. Too bad that Burton has never been good film-maker.
        As for Disney, POTC’s success has simply made them to lap up his now-valuable edgy brand. The result is also something like Rango, which won the Oscar and wasn’t a run-of-the-mill animated movie. The only problem with Depp is he’s been over-exposed in the last few years but even that has to do with the fact that some of his projects like Dark Shaodows or The Lone Ranger are his long-time dreams which are all finally coming together only now because of his recent box-office appeal.

        And the whole “greasy midlife crisis” speculation and blame seems to be at odd with what has always been his persona. Seems biased and judgemental.

    • Bbb1975 says:

      I agree with you.

  28. Liz says:

    I think Ruth Wilson looks great and it reminds me Luther will be back soon!.
    Don’t care a bit about Lone Ranger, it might do well in the U.S but I don’t see it doing lots of money overseas.

  29. hahahah says:

    Ok so the Pirate movie is a rap..cant wait.

  30. soapyme says:

    Johnny looks pretty nice here. He’s not wearing a dozen scarves and he looks like he showered recently.

    I don’t get the dangly crotch charm though. If I ever wore something like that I would get it caught in something. And my pants would probably be ripped off.

  31. diva says:

    They both look nice.

  32. Jenny says:

    I know the trend here is to say “oh hate Johnny” “oh he doesn’t look good anymore”, i can’t this time! I think this clean-shaven-ageless hipster looked great in the premier
    How I missed this Johnny. Under all the scarf, hats and jewelry, he’s still hot as hell!

  33. Janet says:

    I have no wish at all to see this movie. I can’t stand Depp when he’s hamming it up in period costumes and eyeliner.

  34. UsedToBeLulu says:

    I wouldn’t kick either one of them out of the bed.

  35. karen says:

    I love Johnny and his “unique” ability to accessorize. Armie is too big and tall for that suit, but he is a handsome guy. Something about him kind of reminds me when Brendan Fraser was hot.

  36. mommak918 says:

    I think Johnny looks a billion times better than he has been. His hair is cut and he’s not wearing some sweat big hat and a thousand scarves….

    I love JD. Dark Shadows was great…btw.. but I like campy….to an extent.. not sure ill like Lone Ranger…..

  37. prettylights says:

    Johnny’s looking good! The crotch jewelry is weird but it’s still better than his usual 20 scarves and necklaces. At least he’s not afraid to do his own thing. I’m glad he got a hair cut and looks clean. I’m almost half his age but damn…it doesn’t matter, I would never say no to that.

  38. CeltLady says:

    Sober JD is looking FINE.
    Cleaned up, looks bathed.
    Mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmm……

  39. Esmerelda says:

    That poor poor stylist… crotch jewelry, greasy hair, overlong, wrinkled trousers. And the other one in a pink suit.

    Depp is done, btw, he had the talent to be the next DDL and he’s doing character roles in Disney movies… greed surely looks uncool.

  40. Dave says:

    That woman needs to match her face to her legs better……. or the other way around…it looks ridiculous!!

  41. Tasha says:

    Dose Disney own his a$$ or something? Because he only has 1 movie out of 4 that he signed to that’s not Disney for the next 3 years.

    I guess no matter what Johnny says its really all about the money for him.

  42. Jane says:

    Love Armie Hammer. I wish he would play Jamie Fraser from the Outlander series when they start filming.

    • Tig says:

      Are they really filming this? I tried the first one and just couldn’t get into it. I know there are now – what?- 10-12 books? Movie movie or HBO?

      • Jane says:

        I don’t know at what point you stopped reading, but I love his series written by Diana Gabaldon.

        There are seven books, with an eighth out in March of 2013 called Written in My Own Heart’s Blood. The author says there will be an ninth book. I suspect that will be the last one.

        Starz has the contract for 16 episodes to air next spring. Production starts in September or October of this year and filmed in Scotland. I don’t know if they are half hour or full hour.

        I can’t wait to see who they cast for Jamie, Claire, Ian Jr., Lord John (love him!) Black Jack Randall (what a monster) and Jenny and Ian Sr.

  43. Ari says:

    As a native american, any kid dressing up as a native american is better than NO kids dressing up as native americans. Everyone should freaking dress up as native americans gotdammit lol

  44. Shannon says:

    I would bang both of these men. I like the clean cut Armie and of course I love grungy, dirty Johnny. I don’t discriminate.

  45. KeepRocking says:

    Armie is quite cute but no where near Johnny.He is looking incredibly good lately.And I think it’s time to stop the hate because there is no reason at all to hate him.He is looking good and he always is nice and kind to everyone.

  46. Dommy Dearest says:

    I’m so over Johnny.

  47. Cicada says:

    I just can’t with Armie Hammer’s name.

  48. DianeP says:

    Johnny still has “it” and I would pay to watch him read the phone book.

  49. Elina says:

    Armie Hammer all day ERRDAY!!!!

  50. AustinMJ says:

    Elizabeth Chambers looks WAY too classy for Armie. But smart move, marrying into all that old money.

    Johnny Depp’s still the MLC poster boy I see. GAK.

  51. AustinMJ says:

    Oh! And I love E Chambers dress n shoes. Keepin it classy.

  52. Tiffany says:

    I am not ashamed to say it, I’d pull Barry Pepper’s hair on bed.

  53. Lia says:

    I just saw a sneak preview of the movie, and it’s a whole lotta WOW. What a movie!! The commercials don’t adequately represent what you’re going to see in the theater. Damn. I have to go see it again.

  54. Jenn says:

    Johnny looks very nice here, his hair is clean, brushed, can’t believe he’s not wearing a hat. , I can even get past the sparkly jewels dangling down by his family jewels. No subtlety there. Of course, he’s dressed like Gary Oldman’s Dracula right down to the smoked blue shades, but there you go. Always a role with Depp.

    Hammer looks nice. His wife is beautiful.

    I love Ruth on Luther, I love Idris Elba more. Mmmmm. Sexy.

    Pepper looks like hell.

  55. A says:

    The final nail in the coffin for me was the rolling stone interview. My attraction for him physically, and as an actor and person(a), died right there. Not to sound dramatic or anything.

    I like what someone wrote about Johnny some time ago, Something about us fans and how we used to excuse his lack of….intellect.
    How we used to tell ourselves it’s because he’s so “deep” and inarticulate (He is inarticulate, but that’s not an excuse).
    Now that I finally can see clearly, I can look back and see that he has always been kind and sweet, but shallow and not very worldly and educated (you don’t need to have gone to school to be educated)…and finally, him not revealing everything about himself, is not because he is hiding some deep mysterious personality. He’s just not that interesting and his rolling stone interview proves that.
    All that said, we had a long run and no one can take away those cheek bones…except fat I suppose…eh

  56. Christina says:

    Armie should not shave. His stubble is hot.

  57. Hi there, beautiful page but there is a problem whereby on occassion I am sent back to the root page whenever I look at different topics in this site.
