Johnny Depp & Amber Heard step out in Japan after ‘Mortdecai’ flops

Johnny Depp

When I first glimpsed these photos, the mental caption that popped into my evil mind was “Amber Heard and grandpa.” Yes, I’m a terrible person. These are photos of Johnny Depp and his lady arriving at the Tokyo airport. Amber’s sticking out the relationship for now. Some people believe these two are already married because Johnny’s wearing a gold band on his important finger. This is probably another mangagement ring.

The SAGs took up yesterday’s gossip beat here, so the internet has had plenty of time to reflect upon the newest Depp box-office disaster. This isn’t even a new pattern from a former box-office king. Only a few months ago, we spoke about Transcendence, which opened with $11 million (on a $100 budget). Mortdecai performed even worse — $4.2 million (on a $60 million budget). What on earth could cost that much money besides Johnny and Goop? Maybe the ‘stache allowance was huge.

Countless outlets have gone hard on Johnny after this soft opening. Forbes promises that Johnny will lead the overpaid actor list this year. No one understands why he’s allowed keep churning out big budget clunkers. The Lone Ranger, Dark Shadows, and The Rum Diary all failed to make money too. Lori Petty had a point last year. No actress would own a private island after even two consecutive flops. Even worse, Johnny doesn’t care about these diminishing returns.

Johnny still draws admirers in Japan. He greeted a throng of screaming fans wearing Mortdecai moustaches. Perhaps the movie will make up some slack, but it won’t be enough.

    The suave gentleman on the escalator behind Depp is giving that hat the derision it deserves. But it’s still probably the cleanest thing he’s wearing.

  2. paola says:

    Amber looks like Johnny’s caregiver.
    He has completely lost his mojo. Looks like an old fool with dementia with all those layered scarves, disheveled DYED hair and rings.
    I can’t think of any less appealing movie if the cast includes Johnny Depp and Gwyneth Paltrow.
    She is a total joke while he has become Tim Burton’s movie pet. I can’t take him seriuosly anymore.
    I love Tim BUrton (and I saw him not long ago and i was literally in awe) but he has the tendency to use the same actor in too many of his films and spoon feeding them to you. Johnny has become caricaturesque in my opinion and he has lost all his credibility.
    not even Ewan McGregor could save this film.

    • Ally8 says:

      Ditto. He looks old and not-all-there.

      He needs a stylist and a dignity coach, stat.

    • miriam says:

      I can’t stand Goop as a person, but she’s actually a good actress and I usually find myself liking her onscreen. Which is proof she’s a good actress because she seems a total cow in real life.

      Depp on the other hand is a lost cause these days.

    • Do2To says:

      So did you not see Burton’s last 2 films or what? Because they both didn’t have Depp in them. The last time him and Burton worked together was 3 years ago. Give it a rest already, it’s not like they are making 10 movies a year.

      Did Depp kill one of your kittens or something? All this hate over hats and scarves and things he always wore.. he hasn’t lost his mojo or anything. He’s still the same Johnny. It’s just that you want to hate on him now that he is aging.

      • paola says:

        Apparently the box office agrees with me.
        He has lost is credibility after FIVE box office bombs. Deal with it.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        You’re wrong. Ten years ago, he wasn’t dressing like a layered upjSteven Tyler. He has gained so much weight they had to repeatedly let out his costume in the last Pirates movie and sorry, but that is alcohol bloat. He’s desperately trying to appeal to the hipster crowd and ever since he started doing the Pirates movies, he can’t seem to let go of the fake accent. All his characters are the same now – so much over-the-top silliness with the same fake accent – just lame. And now, he’s drinking like a fish and hooked up with a woman young enough to be his daughter. Can you say desperate?

        I used to love Johnny Depp in 21 Jump Street, Edward Scissorhands, From Hell and Dark Shadows. But now all he ever plays is the same eccentric flambouyant character (Ed Wood, Don Juan DeMarco, Dead Man, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Sleepy Hollow, Before Night Falls, the Pirates of the Caribbean,s and Sweeney Todd. )

      • FLORC says:

        But Depp has lost his mojo. His movies are all bombing 1 after the other. When was his last decent film? I mean a good one that actually turned a good profit and was seen as all around not awful. Not something that with domestic and international sales managed to squeek by.
        Depp seems to just not care anymore. He had such talent. Now it’s just sad.

    • Miffy says:

      Welp, he won’t be using Helena Bonham Carter anymore! Oh that’ll be such a shake up!

  3. Esmom says:

    At first glance I thought they were wearing costumes. He looks like a walking yard sale. And I’m not surprised the movie isn’t a hit.

  4. Lisa says:

    Why is he always dressed like a pimp?!

    • PunkyMomma says:


    • PixieWitch says:

      That’s an insult to pimps. No self-respecting pimp would dress like that.

    • chaine says:

      dressed like a gramps who just thinks he’s a pimp.

    • FLORC says:

      It’s not intentional. A walking stick sometimes is mistaken for a pimp cane. And being older he must dress in layers for that pesky thermostat that makes rooms too hot and too cold.
      Thank goodness that nice young girl is there to help him day to day.

      • littlestar says:

        Omg Florc, LOL. She is his caregiver, isn’t she? It must suck for her now to have reached the “fame” she wants but to now have to put up with an incontinent old man in return.

      • Forthelasttime says:

        LOL Florc. Gotta feel a little sorry for AH… She thought she was onto something soooo good! Ha!

  5. Mata says:

    Other than the Pirate franchise, I can’t think of any movie he’s ever done that was a hit and/or made enough money to justify his paycheck.

    • paola says:

      Back in the days he was great.
      Just think of ‘Edward scissorhands’ or ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape’ or ‘Blow’.
      Now not so much. He’s become a massive turn-off when it comes to movies ( and something else too probably).
      Vanessa Paradis had him during his best years. I’m glad she doesn’t have to endure him during his downhill fall and his midlife crisis.

      • epiphany says:

        Yes, he was a brilliant actor, and chose interesting work…what happened to him? Is it the drinking do you think, or are there other issues as well?

      • paola says:

        I think he just got lazy. And lost into those caricature-characters.
        He seems like he doesn’t give a f— anymore about putting some effort in making good films. He could get literally any role/script he wanted but then he picks the sloppiest parts ever. I don’t know if it’s the Tim Burton’s downside effect but it seems like he doesn’t care anymore.

      • mimif says:

        I think Dead Man is my fave Depp film.

      • paola says:

        Donnie Brasco was great too.

      • bette says:

        Benny and Joon was one of his best movies! Rent it if you haven’t seen it–with Aidan Quinn and Mary Stuart Masterson (whatever happened to her?)

      • Insomniac says:

        Yes! Even when I didn’t like the movies, I liked that he did so much offbeat stuff and took so many risks. Now he just seems to show up for the paycheck.

      • Lucy2 says:

        He had a great run for a while and was one of my favorite actors. Even the first Pirates movie was good, but after that something just went wrong.

      • lirko says:

        Dead Man! Forgot all about that one…is Jarmusch still writing /directing?

      • Tara says:

        Dead Man is my favorite movie too! A friend described it as the most perfect movie ever, and I agree.

      • lrm says:

        if you think about it, he worked really hard not just to do interesting/off beat movies, but to NOT be a leading man. I’m sure he was scouted to be a romantic lead. He’s had relationships in some of his movies, but they were never conventional ones or long term or leading man type of scripts. I think he worked very hard to avoid them b/c he was not comfortable with his pretty looks and he ended up stuck in caricature land. Also, initially his off beat films were interesting, but after a few, they are not as novel anymore. Once indie becomes mainstream, it does lose some of its edge and appeal-like anything in life, what made it interesting was that it was new and stimulating. Amber looks dazed and on something-she often does IMO and there’s quite a bit of talk about depp being a long term user. not just drinking.

      • FLORC says:

        I’m glad Benny And Joon was mentioned. For me that really showcased how good Depp was. And the film was imo very original. I think it’s on Netflix?

        Whatever talent/spark/fire Depp has is now gone. He phones it in. He atleast has a great catalogue of movies to remember him as he was. Not an old, scarfy man who hooked up with a fame hungry 20something while he makes bomb after bomb. smh

      • Isadora says:

        @lirko: Dead Man was truly a piece of art. Got me hooked on Jarmusch! Btw yes, he is still writing and directing. 😉 Last year Only Lovers Left Alive with Tilda Swinton was in theatres. It’s rather lighthearted and I loved it immensly, the music is all kinds of perfect.

        BTW sometimes I really get a whim of the “good old times”-nostalgia, when Johnny Depp and Vincent Gallo could be together in a movie (Arizona Dreams) and both not totally weird or crazy yet.

    • Nya says:

      Alice in Wonderland made a billion dollars (unfortunately)

    • Adrien says:

      Private Resort was his best movie.

    • Janet says:

      Sleepy Hollow. He was wonderful in that movie. I can’t think of any other film He was in that I liked.

      • Shambles says:

        I couldn’t even pick a favorite out of all the movies he’s made. I love love love Sleepy Hollow and the Pirates franchise, but the favorite would be between Edward Scissorhands, Cry Baby, or Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

      • FLORC says:

        Fear and loathing! Another great film. And was it Gonzo or For No Good Reason where Depp is with Hunter S. again, but narraating?

        Depp made such fantastic films. And such abominations.

      • littlestar says:

        LOVE Sleepy Hollow.

      • Forthelasttime says:

        Me too, I love Sleepy hollow and Edward Scissorhands. He was such a GREAT once upon a time. I’d like to think he can still make good somehow. He just needs to become single (permanently or at least for a good decade and never hook up with a little girl again); concentrate on his kids, stop the alcohol and drugs i.e. clean up his act, and just be as modest as can be (that goes for his style). Everything else will come – hopefully. Surely this is better advice than any agent could give him.

    • Do2To says:

      Maybe you should do a little research then because he’s had a lot of hits outside of the Pirates franchise. Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland were huge hits. Edward Scissorhands, Benny & Joon, Donnie Brasco, Chocolat, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Finding Neverland, Corpse Bride, Rango and recently Into the Woods were also hits. His other big movies that didn’t do well in the US did great overseas. His paycheck is pretty justified. He made billions for Hollywood.

      • Janet says:

        The bottom line is he’s losing multi-millions for Hollywood now, and you know how Hollywood loves its bottom line. I don’t know how long they are going to keep hiring him — with backend, yet — when he keeps churning out flop after flop. Sooner or later they are going to pull the plug on him.

  6. Splinter says:

    He looks old and tired, old and tired doesn’t sell movies.

  7. Nya says:

    The stains on his pants make me want to vomit.

    • Celestine says:

      The stains MAY BE vomit – it was reported he said something about having the flu when he arrived.

  8. TeresaMaria says:

    I can not blame you for “Amber Heard and grandpa”
    My thoughts exactly.

  9. Megan says:

    Poor Amber. Can you imagine waking up next to that every morning?

    • MrsBPitt says:

      I agree…but thats her choice. Maybe she can’t see him with those dollar signs in her eyes…It always makes me laugh when these rich, old, gross guys are with these young, hot girls…Do they REALLY not know why these women are drawn to them…I’m sure its not to change his depends!!!!! I guess these guys don’t care…I take it back, it dosen’t make me laugh, it makes me sad!

    • frisbeejada says:

      Yes it does make me wonder what Amber Heard see’s in the multi-millionaire established HW star with a private island…

    • Do2To says:

      I would like to wake to “that” everyday. I bet she feels lucky for waking up to “that” everyday. She obviously loves him, nobody is forcing her to be with him so why do you feel sorry for her?

  10. Jayna says:

    Johnny isn’t a box office draw for years and he keeps getting these huge paychecks. I don’t know what Amber sees in him. I like Johnny, but she’s young and beautiful and he’s in his 50s, a drinking problem, kids, and just does nothing for me anymore. He’s like a character in his movies anymore, not real. He was great back in the day.

    • Lucy2 says:

      The huge paychecks and all the attention. She wouldn’t have fans and paparazzi lined up for just her.

  11. scout says:

    Japan seems to LOVE everything American!! Ok, no problem, we will take it even if it’s for Mortdecai.
    Amber is so beautiful, she is into him by the looks she is giving him. Lucky him. He is a grumpy grandpa unfortunately.

  12. Luca76 says:

    Sad. It wasn’t so long ago that I thought he was one of the hottest of all time. How quickly they fall.

  13. Talie says:

    Perhaps, his films do really well internationally? I remember reading that about Nicole Kidman when she was getting the same heat. The Golden Compass flopped here, but did big business overseas.

    • Anthea says:

      That’s probably true. But the gossip columns only want bad stories about him at the moment so that’s all we’ll hear.

      When he was filming in my area some kids from a school wrote and asked him to visit their school and stage a mutiny on the teachers. He turned up in pirate costume and acted out a mutiny. There weren’t any paps there, one of the teachers filmed it on her phone. Everyone said he seemed to just enjoy making the kids happy. So I find it really hard to view him too negatively.

      • Tulip says:

        @Anthea. That is so cool! I love when actors actually care about their fans and do stuff like that! Good for him and glad you guys had fun.

      • Crumpet says:

        Hahaha! I love it.

        He has never seemed comfortable at all when the paps are around and that has never changed. Other than that, I think he is doing fine. He just doesn’t give a rat’s what anyone thinks. I haven’t seen a ton of his movies, but I’ve liked him in everything I’ve seen him in. I’ve been a fan since 21 Jump Street.

    • Adrien says:

      That’s why he promoted it personally in Japan. Maybe he had an Asian promo tour. In Asia, the likes of Depp and Stallone are still huge box-office draws. The Tourist made money abroad.

    • Grace says:

      Thats what I think too. I used to work for a couple of studios in international marketing and it was amazing how many “has beens” can still get movies produced after starring in so many bombs in America because their awful movies made tons of money overseas. I’m sure that’s the case for Depp.

      Btw- Depp’s outfit is half offensive than Amber’s horrible outfit and stupid hat. Did she get dressed in the dark?

      • Mary-Alice says:

        their awful movies made tons of money …

        What an arrogant and rude statement! Sounds like in other countries the audiences lack the high level american intellect! But no, it may be the other way around, you know. It may not be that the movies were auful. Cough.

    • Cici says:

      They do make more money internationally but still not enough to make their budget back. Studios only get about half the box office revenue and rest is kept by the cinemas. Marketing is very expensive too and not included in the budgets. Lone Ranger was so expensive Disney took $150 million loss on it. Transcendence lost about $100 million, too.

  14. Marie-France says:

    Amber looks like a teenager on an all-inclusive resort with her alcoholic dad.

  15. vauvert says:

    Love her coat. Just glorious. The rest of her sister-wife outfit, she can keep, and the same for the mess formerly known as hot Johnny Depp. While I will probably still watch Pirates, because nostalgia, I am not even bothering with any of his movies. I feel bad for Paul and Ewan, but why the heck did they sign up for that mess? A good script would have saved the movie despite Johnny always playing the buffoon now, but couldn’t they tell it would be a disaster?
    And yes, no woman of whatever age would get away with so many repeated bombs, and still get fat pay checks and big budget roles.

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      Yes love the coat and the rest of the outfit is too girlish, BUT I can see it setting a trend (if it isn’t already a trend) in Japan with all the school girls who still worship JD.

  16. bns says:

    They both look stupid.

  17. Jag says:

    Are we sure those aren’t paid fans? Many places offer the service at airports for big stars. Didn’t Tom Cruise have that done once?

    • Esmom says:

      I kinda thought the same thing. Especially with the mustaches, seems like they were given some direction.

  18. Tiffany says:

    Depp asked for his salary upfront and a backend of the profits. If it bombs, he is still paid. Something tells me the Berger film is going to be shelved. Between him and Cumberidiot the film is not looking like a awards contender or a hit.

    • Do2To says:

      Isn’t Cumberbatch in an awards darling hit right now? Black Mass is actually looking like an awards contender. If it turns out to be good, Depp will definitely get an Oscar nom for it.

      • greenmonster says:

        I wouldn’t go as far as saying he will definitely get an Oscar nom for that role if the movie turns out to be good. But I agree, that the movie looks very promising. Cumberbatch and Depp are both very good actors. And both of them in the same movie can bring out the very best in them.

  19. smee says:

    She’s paying a pretty high price for the good life, based on those photos. I mean, I’m sure her shoes cost thousands, but will she even give a eff about them in a year? She’s wasting her 20s hanging out with Bojangles there – I hope she’s getting compensated & saving it………

  20. mkyarwood says:

    RIP, Johnny Depp. Amber looks pretty good for stepping out of 1976’s Vogue.

  21. Adrien says:

    No, you are not a terrible person, Bedhead. Amber really looks like his personal geriatric nurse.

  22. Ellie66 says:

    Wow he is having a major major mid-life crisis.. Manopause for sure! Lol!

  23. Dawn says:

    I saw this movie over the weekend and it isn’t as bad as people say it is. It is very campy which Johnny does well. When I laughed I really laughed but the problem is there are not enough laughs. His performace as always was great. I have seen worse movies. I would give it a 5 out of 10.

    • Tulip says:

      I saw Mortdecai this weekend as well and while it didn’t have magic, it was an alright movie. People were saying that maybe it was because it didn’t have a clear target audience and I could see how that would ring true. You can’t dump everything on one damn actor.

      Depp will be portraying Whitey Bulger later this year (and I think Cumberbatch is in it too) so hopefully that will cleanse the palate for the audience and put him back on track.

    • Sarah says:

      I think one of the reasons it was a flop is the R rating. I was actually shocked it was rated R as I have seen previews for it at movies like The Hobbit and Mockingjay. My 13 year old wanted to see it and we were going to go and then I saw the R rating. They push Johnny Depp in trailers at more age appropriate movies and then it has R. The trailers didn’t look that bad to me – kind of like Johnny Depp plays The Pink Panther – which I could probably tolerate for 90 minutes. But nope – we won’t be seeing it.

      • iheartjacksparrow says:

        @Sarah – That was exactly my thought. The marketing makes it look like a wacky comedy, and then you find out it has an R rating. Maybe if they’d sold it as a Hangover -type movie it would have worked better. Also, I read a review that stated that one problem was that it was set in modern times, whereas the people appear to have stepped out of a Hercule Poirot story.

        I used to go to all of Johnny’s movies on opening weekend, but after the mess that was Transcendence, I think I’ll wait until they show up on one of the premium channels.

  24. AlexandraJane says:

    they look very coordinated. ridiculous, but coordinated.

    • bondbabe says:

      That’s what I thought when I saw the first pic. Coordinating opposing hat and coat colors. Weird!

  25. Addison says:

    Yikes, I did think this movie would flop but 4.2 mil very sad. His fan base is just not the same. Maybe they have grown up while he still stuck in the same mind frame.

    • Do2To says:

      Actually, his fan base is still huge and they go to see all of his films but fans alone are not enough to make a movie that the general public isn’t interested in a hit. Some of his fans are right there in those photos, amazing how you chose to ignore that.

      • crazytown says:

        LOL I am enjoying your consistent meltdown on people saying negative things about Depp. Keep it up.

      • paola says:

        Ahah! You sound like you’ve got a bit crush on Mr Depp.

      • Sarah says:

        Huge fanbase but not for an R rated movie. Remember that many of his fans are kids and tweens/teens (the Pirates group). They couldn’t see Mordecai.

      • vauvert says:

        Ha ha. Huge fanbase? Is that why his last three movies each bombed? Please. A truly huge fan base would be sufficient to carry a movie, not to mention these amazing fans would spread the word so the general public (i.e. non-fans ) would go see it. And I don’t count Into the Woods as a JD movie – it was an ensemble star cast and if anything, I went despite Scarfy’s role. And I say this as someone who used to be a fan.

      • Valois says:

        Maybe LeAnn’s a secret JD-fan 😀

      • Ange says:

        Are you an alter of that other crazy Depp fan or the same one? i thought the name was different but by gosh the misplaced fervour is identical.

  26. Mich says:

    Has anyone else noticed the wide-legged stance he keeps doing when he is standing still? It is odd. Makes him look like an old Western gunfighter. Is he doing it for balance?

  27. bored_01 says:

    I guess they coordinated these two baggy outfits of sadness.

  28. Precious says:

    If he were a 50 year old actress, he would be long buried, worse than Demi Moore in the ’00s, but Hollywood will still pay him eight-figure! So unfair.

    He has become too distant to be relateable, all he does these days is over the top bad acting in mediocre films instead of playing deep real characters. Even during t v interviews, Depp comes across as bored, cranky, angry and yeah, ungrateful for all his blessings.

    • Do2To says:

      Did Demi’s movies make billions for Hollywood like Depp’s movies did? At one point he became the biggest and most profitable star in the business, of course he isn’t done yet because of some flops. And isn’t Nicole Kidman still getting work after her mountain of flops?

      He was not playing an over the top character in Transcendence and that flopped simply because it was bad and people were not interested in it. It’s silly to blame it all on the actor.

      I don’t know which interviews you’ve been watching because he always comes across as nice, humble, kind and very grateful in all of his interviews. He does seem bored in some interviews but I would be too if I had to answer the same questions over and over again.

    • chaine says:

      I like the idea of him and Demi Moore in a dramatic film, playing characters their own ages. Perhaps characters their own ages who try to relive their glorious youths by chasing after romances with too-young partners.

    • vauvert says:

      Or incoherent and high or drunk, not to mention arrogant. Talking smack about actors who also have the nerve to want to be musicians… how he is above it all because ART… showing up unable to speak at a work function – yes, presenting an award in your field is actually a work function and I don’t care who the hell you are, if you can’t show up and do a decent job, don’t take it.

  29. dante says:

    Time for him to get a haircut, put on a suit, and start looking and acting his age. He just looks too “thick” at this point to pull off this teenager routine. I half expect him to pull off his face only to reveal Al Pacino hiding underneath.

    Amber’s a cutie. Can’t figure out what she’s doing with him. Does not compute.

    • Do2To says:

      Doesn’t he do exactly that at all of his movie premieres? Sounds like you are not familiar with him at all. He always wear suits at professional events and “acts his age” I don’t see any teenagers dressed like that, he should wear whatever he wants and whatever makes him comfortable. He has revealed his face a lot recently and it’s still gorgeous.

      Amber is a wonderful human being. She is not so shallow to be with people based on their looks. She’s obviously in love with him.

      • Dree says:

        Are you his PR team? Are you gonna answer every post?

      • frisbeejada says:

        Nah – it’s Sara on a different computer and yes all posts will be answered because it’s either his PR team or a very close relative 🙂

      • crazytown says:

        LOL yes I agree that Amber is totally in love with Johnny. So much so that she was willing to bang Kevin Costner while they were filming three days to a kill :-O

      • Do2To says:

        @crazytown Lol and is there any evident of that? Or you just making things up out of nowhere?

      • iheartjacksparrow says:

        Not shallow? Have you read her interviews? She’s more shallow than a puddle of water after a mild rain. I guess Amber will go “trailer park” on me for writing that.

      • Ange says:

        Sara that’s it! Thanks frisbee, I thought it was her with a new name

  30. kri says:

    She looks like a Sister Wife. What is this situation they have going on?! It’s like they got thrown out of the house and instead of packing just put on a ll the clothes they had and ran.

  31. secret says:

    she’s a lucky girl, wanted to have the pleasure of sex and wake up with Johnny. They say Johnny is the best lover in bed, besides being beautiful.

  32. FingerBinger says:

    Johnny doesn’t look that bad to me. He does look hungover. Also, the bohemian thing he’s been doing for the last 20 years is played out.

  33. frisbeejada says:

    So is he pursing his lips – to indicate displeasure at all those people turning up to scream at him? Or is he still sucking his cheeks in the accentuate his cheekbones – silly old sod.

  34. Someonestolemyname says:

    Johnny Depp is still gorgeous.

    He is a great actor and Gwyneth is a great actress, but the film’s title makes it hard for me to find an interest in going to see it, really.
    I also don’t think the pr roll out was spectacular during award season.

      Ummm… you don’t go to see a movie starring what you consider to be two great actors because of the title? As opposed to, say, the trailer and the reviews?

  35. Penelope says:

    Never understood the Johnny bashing on here. I’ve always liked him.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      We all used to like him too…alot. We’re allowed to be disappointed and at this point….disgusted. That’s what’s sad, what the hell happened?

  36. Suki2 says:

    Doesn’t look like a 60 million movie. ALL the money went to Depp and Goop and all their perks and privileges. They get paid regardless and everyone else takes the hit. That’s the real awful truth here, not the scarves.

  37. Christina says:

    These people aren’t wearing clothes, they’re wearing costumes!

  38. Dani2 says:

    The comments in this post are hilarious. Good job, ladies 🙂

    I was not ever a Depp fangirl even during his heyday. 10 years ago he was untouchable. Quirky roles that made tons of money and super private. He seemed devoted to his family and still kept that air of mystery and disdain for publicity that made him unHollywood and cool. 10 years later he looks like a pathetic middle aged alcoholic who has accidentally stumbled into a place he doesn’t quite belong. I am willing to believe Depp is super nice to his fans and grateful and humble. Sure. I even dont care that he’s with Amber as she’s the right age to tolerate his immaturity and drinking.

    What pisses me off most about his attitude is him wanting to still be seen as anti establishment when he’s taken so many roles for a paycheck, thinking of the children ya know? The fact that he’s lazy promoting his movies when that’s part of the job because that’d diminish his coolness smacks of entitlement to me. He expects the studios to throw money at him for being Johnny and until they do, he won’t change.

  40. Sugar says:

    Since he invests in his movies he will have a loss. He will continue to work in movies since his studio. So he wants them to make money or else his bank account shrinks. It is like he is paying himself and investing in the movies. Too bad really. Going from mega rich to medium broke.

    • Celestine says:

      I hope he’s not hurting financially. Did you ever see “The Producers”? Sometime things are intended to flop for tax breaks, tax shelters, the like. High finance for rich people. But I think Johnny, his production company and Gwyneth were hoping to make a series of films based on the Mortdecai book series that was very popular in the UK. Even Olivia Munn said yesterday on Ellen that she hoped there would be a Mortdecai 2 so that she could ride her horse again in it lol!

    So, the press conference in Japan has been canceled because Johnny Depp isn’t feeling well. They also showed him lurching a bit at the premiere in Berlin and at another premiere. My guess: he is struggeling with getting older and his latest movies all failing at box office. No matter how pretty Amber is and how much she smiles at him as if he is the next coming, she can’t make that go away. But alcohol can’t do that either, Johnny.

    • lrm says:

      he’s not that old though=early 50’s right? something is going on, no doubt. but alcohol and drugs may play a part more than age, from the looks of things. obviously, i’m not there so i don’t know for sure….

      • greenmonster says:

        Yeah, he is 51 or 52. I just thought early 50’s and Hollywood can make you feel bad about yourself, but of course he is a man and there are other rules for men. Maybe it’s his not-that-short-list of flops, that might hit him hard if he truly believed in those movies. He played quirky characters so often, I think he enjoys doing that much more than other parts, but it does not seem to work for him right now. Maybe it’s something else, but I truly believe something is going on and it’s not healthy.

      • lisa2 says:

        Johnny said he doesn’t give a f*** about BO.

        I’m not sure what is going on with Johnny. But he just seems different. But I was never really following him that long.

      • Celestine says:

        Or maybe she’s slowly poisoning him ala “Hey, he already is rumored to imbibe intoxicants, so who would notice if I slipped in a little something extra when I get the chance?”

    • Melanie says:

      My guess is he’s struggling with addiction. He truly looks unhealthy and he’s very puffy. Alcoholism is a progressive disease, and in my opinion, he’s progressing. He is bloated and unkempt. I used to love this guy, for his looks and his film choices. Now, he’s just sad to me. I feel bad even snarking on him because I believe he is ill. I hope his movies continue to bomb. Maybe that will help him bottom out and gain some clarity. He needs help.

  42. PS says:

    Damn you’re a genius. You can diagnose me too?

  43. Carrie says:

    Everyone rags on his style but holy crap, look at Amber. She looks just as bad.

  44. iheartjacksparrow says:

    There’s new photos on Daily Mail from the premiere in Japan. I can’t believe he would go out in public with his hair looking like that. DM calls him “oily.”

  45. Leslie says:

    Poor Amber. I don’t think this was the plan she signed up for. Johnny’s downfall has been fast. What can he do now to boost her career? Nothing.

  46. JenniferJustice says:

    Amber always looks like she’s high. And like she might cry at any moment. I think it’s purposeful – the open-mouthed might cry at any moment look. I guess she thinks it makes her look young and innocent. That may even be true, but next to Depp these days, it just makes the pairing even harder to swallow.

    • lrm says:

      I agree-she does always look high and like she might cry. Awhile back, I think there were pap photos of her in a car crying…I forget where they were published. yea, this situation is venturing into sad territory IMO, rather than just washed up and pathetic/hypocritical on depp’s part. But have no fear, to those sayign he is losing money-lol-that guy would probably have to work very hard to go broke at this point in his life/career. He owns an island in the caribbean (nice one too), a yacht, multiple properties in many countries, plus investments.

      • Crumpet says:

        Yeah, but once you have all that stuff the upkeep is what kills you. He has to keep working just so he can keep all his stuff.

    • Celestine says:

      She seems to be imitating Keira Knightley for the moment: the clean-scrubbed, squinty-eyed toothy grin with the head off to the side. Bizarre – she’s actually the unstable one of the two. Depp has his demons and issues, but he knows what’s up; besides the disappointing box office, for all we know he’s having major issues with his kids or his health. And it’s always fun to have the world piling on you when you’ve had a successful and enviable career for the last 30 years.

  47. Lala says:

    Amber is gorgeous. I don’t know what’s going on with him. I guess he is dealing with / needing to deal with some stuff. I will always think he is cool. Sometimes people just lose it. Doesn’t erase all he’s done.

  48. ToodySezHey says:

    First off, you can’t lose what you never had. Depp was always overrated as a movie star. Look at his early work

    Crybaby? Didn’t light the world on fire.

    Of his early stuff Edward Scissor hands was his biggest bit. Then after that what?

    Donnie Brasco? Astronauts Wife? Ed Wood was a critical hit but not a BO monster. Ninth Gate? The man who cried? Dead Man Walking. I bet good money most of you never heard of these movies.

    He was lucky to land Pirates and have it be so successful but people act like he was Tom Cruise of he 80s and 90s and he never was that guy.
    Arguably two of his best movies during that time are two small films, Fear and Loathing and the one about the author of Peter Pan.

    Of his bigger budget films, Blow did respectfully well , that gangster film was meh, that jack the ripper movie was bad.

    Depps problem was picking questionable material. 2 motion picture versions of old dated property ( dark shadows and ranger), a remake no one wanted (charlie and chocolate factory) going to the well too many times with HST (rum diary).

    As for Transcendence and Mortdecai, who knows what the original intent was, alot happens from script to screen but I concede those are two legit flops.

    But again, Pirates was the fluke of his career. He has never been a big budget movie star.

    Let’s be real. If Johnnie still looked like he did from the 90s it wouldn’t be as big a deal. His problem is still trying to take 20 something g roles. He needs to study what Clooney are Brad are doing as they transition into elder leading men.

    • Lala says:

      @toody– I had already responded to your comment but had somehow missed the part about pitt and cloony. I guess that tells me all I need to know. Again… There’s no accounting for people’s taste. Those two have never been on my list of men I found the least bit interesting. I haven’t like cruise since the 80’s. I’d take Johnny, bill Murray, David duchovny, tom hardy over those guys any day. I like some personality with my pretty face.

    • KAI says:

      Donnie Brasco starred Al Pacino so, yes, most people know it.

      Ninth Gate was directed by Polanski so most people who are interested in film rather than celebrity have heard of it even if they refuse to see it because of Polanski.

      Dead Man Walking was an excellent film that received a best director nomination for Tim Robbins, a best actress win for Susan Sarandon and a best actor nomination for Sean Penn. Most people have seen or at least know about. Johnny Depp wasn’t in it though.

  49. ToodySezHey says:

    Meh, I found Chocolat formulaic stale and predictable. Even though he was good in it
    It was like a watered down version of the man who cried.

  50. PJ says:

    “No actress would own a private island after even two consecutive flops” See: Jennifer Aniston. Doesn’t actually own a private island but certainly could more than afford one if she so chose. And while the ‘Friends’ money continues to make her unbelievably wealthy, she repeatly turns out failure after failure at the box office and yet and still remains one of Hollywood’s highest paid “leading” ladies.

    • Veronica says:

      Heh, I actually just glanced through her filmography – surprisingly, most of her films actually do turn a profit. The two that bombed recently had ensemble casts that took part of the fall, and the loss wasn’t anywhere near the level of Depp’s films. Cake looks like the biggest bomb for her specifically because she is the one carrying it.

  51. ellalter says:

    She is gorgeous, I’m sure she could get any number of sober rich guys, so maybe she really loves him? That thing that makes us judgment crippled. He used to have great onscreen charisma, that inherent quality which defies a bad script, can’t be learned, and judging from so many actor’s acting kids, isn’t hereditary. It would be so sad if the reason he has lost that is because of alcoholism. Maybe he’s sick with something else? And that’s why she looks so sad?

  52. Anotherdirtymartini says:

    My theory re his looks lately – I think he did an at-home rehab after his embarrassing drunken state at those Hollywood whatever awards last year. That would explain his weight gain & why he was largely absent from the beginning of the Mordecai promo. Also, Amber looks like she’s being so sweet to him lately. He’s in a fragile state perhaps?

  53. Newgirl says:

    My sister loved that movie Cry baby. I never saw it but she liked it a lot. I thought Johnny Depp was good in Don Juan deMarco.
    Anyone remember that movie Nick of Time?! He should go back to making more movies like that!

  54. jenny says:

    Poor Amber?? Cmon shes exactly where she wanted to be….shes been chasing JD for years before meeting him!!!He was her teen crush and SHe wanted to be a star!! she needs him for that cause nobody knew who she was, cause she has NO talent!!!! i HAVE NO DOUBT shes nice to him… she needs him to shine!!! Shes not original, not charming and not talented… pretty? of course… but she looks like trying to convice us how shes the one for Johnny ( copy his style,etc) and probably worked hard to convince JD she’s the one too!!!I think he finally love her… Good luck to them!! We’ll see if it will last!!

    • FLORC says:

      Chasing him? Please elaborate. She was in a long term relationship then and billed herself as a hot chick into other hot chicks and muscle cars. Did she even cross paths with Depp ever before they did Rum Diaries?
