Johnny Depp is a Sexy Rolling Stone

Johnny Depp shows a little skin on the latest cover of Rolling Stone. Interview highlights below!

What was the first song you could play through? Every kid with a guitar at that time, the first things that came up were almost always “Smoke on the Water,” obviously, and “25 or 6 to 4,” by Chicago. But the first song I played all the way through must have been “Stairway to Heaven.” I remember getting through the fingerpicking and just cursing Jimmy Page.

What was your first band? When I was about thirteen, I got together with some other kids in the neighborhood. This one guy had a bass, we knew a guy who had a PA system, we made our own lights. It was really ramshackle and great. We’d play at people’s backyard parties. Everything from the Beatles to Led Zeppelin to Cheap Trick to Devo — and “Johnny B. Goode” was the closer.

You’ve got that wistful look in your eyes. You’re thirteen years old and you’re playing rock & roll. Loud. Poorly. But somebody’s letting you do it in their back yard. And it was absolute perfection. It was freedom. Right off the bat, there was no question: I had found my future.

    No one , and i mean NO ONE turning 50 (soon) can possibly be hotter than johnny !!!!

  • stefanie

    Now that’s a sexy beast! I love the close up. So sensual, so manly…luv it!
    I may disagree with some of his politics (he does a bit of USA bashing sometimes), but he is a very intelligent man and a dynamic actor.

    Johnny is the man!

  • Damn

    He’s perfection!

  • Amanda

    “No one , and i mean NO ONE turning 50 (soon) can possibly be hotter than johnny !!!!”

    Considering Pitt’s looks are going down the pooper (see the Critics’ Choice Awards), I agree. I’m not too fond of George Clooney, either. I love Daniel Day-Lewis, though. :)

  • Bre

    ESTA HERMOSO, SIMPLEMENTE Y EXTRAORDINARIAMENTE BELLO.

  • Eve

    Oh Dear God! Johnny, I want to be your sex slave.

  • kiersten

    damn is all I can say.

  • Jen

    The best actor out right now for sure!

  • mickey

    He is so beautiful (inside and out, although that out is crazy beautiful).

  • creativegirl

    he cleans up so well, gosh its just like my 21 jump street poster i had of him in the back of my closet that I hid there until I got married and finally had to give it up.

    he looks so yummy in these pics. just the fact that he’s older and wiser makes him just that much more sexier than he was in his earlier days. Men really have it too good don’t they???

  • Jennie

    best rollingstones cover ever!!!!!!!!!!

  • Shannon

    o…m…g…..look at him! such a beautiful person inside and out
