Johnny Depp: Rolling Stone Cover Boy

Johnny Depp: Rolling Stone Cover Boy

Rock & roll “father and son” Keith Richards and Johnny Depp are Rolling Stone‘s newest cover boys in their latest issue. A hilarious Q&A with the “blood brothers” is expected to go live tomorrow.

The Rolling Stones guitarist was so impressed with Depp‘s acting skills on the latest POTC movie, the actor now calls him “Two-Take Richards.” Depp has said, “The anticipation was mad. Everyone was like, ‘Is he going to do it? Is he going to do it?’ And then whammo, he arrived at eight o’clock in the morning, totally prepped and ready to go. Obviously, Keith Richards – the guy invented charisma. But what I didn’t expect was he was going to be such a great actor. I started calling him ‘Two-Take Richards’. It was like this gunslinger arrived in town, charmed all the women and impressed all the men, and then split.”

Richards plays Depp‘s pirate character’s father in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, out May 25.

    Thanks JJ for the thread on Johnny!….I adore him. I can’t wait to see the movie. His movie is the first movie on my list for the Summer. Spiderman who?…*rolled eyes*- a DVD movie for me on that.

    woooow…..! love the cover!
    Johnny looks great.

  • Our world is coming to an end…

    JOHNNY DEPP!!! *dies*

    Seriously the guy is so hot it’s almost unbearable…He is like Brad Pitt he is timeless…The guy doesn’t age.
    Love him.

    Too bad the dead octopus near him wastes the cover.

    Johnny Depp is soooo beautiful. That’s it. That’s all there is to say.

  • Brenda

    Oh how I love these guys, Keith is awesome and so is Johnny. What a great cover. Think I will buy a copy and get it framed! Great cover!

  • cc

    This guy doesn’t seem to age like Pitt. Good genes! Unless sexy Pitt, this guy is actually a good actor too.

  • Original Curious

    Thanks JJ. That cover is a keeper. With Hunter S. Thompson dead, no one is fit to be Depp’s dad but Richards. I can’t wait to see this movie!

    I love Johnny Depp. I love him to death. He´s been my prince charming since 1990 when he caught my attention by playing Edward Scissorhands. Tremendously good looking, down to earth, kind and the best actor in the world…He can play absolutly anything. I can´t wait to see him in Pirates of the Caribbean – At the world´s end. I think he is aging really well, he doesn´t have that baby face anymore, he´s more manly now. But I have to disagree with the ones who are comparing him to Brad Pitt. I always thought Brad looked like a monkey and he is showing he is 43 years old recently, he has that “tired” expression now…and if only Brad was as talented as Johnny, which he is not and if only he had Johnny´s character, which he doesn´t.

  • pfft

    You got that backwards – Johnny nicknamed Richards “Two Take-Richards”, therefore:

    Depp was so impressed with the acting talents of the RS guitarist …

  • black

    This is so cool……not that I´m a Rolling Stones fan. (I´m a Beatle!)

    But I´m very happy for Johnny, for he really is a big Keith Richards-fan.
    Way to go Johnny!

  • black

    To all the people who keep comparing Brad and Johnny- I don´t think so.

    It´s mostly Johnnys long hair and beard (and funky clothes) that make him appear younger. But if you really look at him, you see the wrinkles.

    He looks like a good 40 year old to me.

    And as of late I gotta say that Brad´s “it” factor is coming back.

  • Eve

    I like his wrinkles and aging well has more to do with bone structure than wrinkles themselves. Brad is starting to show saggy skin below his eyes.

    I like his wrinkles and aging well has more to do with bone structure than with wrinkles themselves. Brad Pitt is already showing saggy skin below his eyes.

    I have to agree with Eve.
