Johnny Depp Covers Entertainment Weekly

Johnny Depp Covers Entertainment Weekly

Johnny Depp promotes his upcoming cat-and-mouse thriller Public Enemies on the latest cover of EW.

The 45-year-old actor plays John Dillinger, one of the most notorious criminals of the 20th century, while Christian Bale takes on the role of federal agent Melvin Purvis.

Enemies is about the early days of the FBI and one agent’s pursuit of the Depression-era bank robber whose reign of stickups and near escapes ended in a hail of bullets outside of Chicago’s Biograph Theater in 1934.

“Dillinger was one of those guys, like Charlie Chaplin and Evel Knievel, that I was fascinated with at a young age,” says Depp. “And because of my grandfather [who ran moonshine during the Prohibition], the character was pretty easy for me to connect to. In a way, this movie was a salute to him… Some people might disagree, but I think he was a real-life Robin Hood. I mean, the guy wasn’t com­pletely altruistic, but he went out of his way not to kill anybody. He definitely gave a lot of that money away. I love the guy.”

    I think other actors can learn from him. He is very versatile. He can play any role and do it brilliantly.

    He looks old!!
    *******************************************************************************************

    He’s 45 years old, honey. Did you expect him to look like he’s 21? How old are you, BTW? Eleven and a half?

    Cane Says:

    Johnny’s okay, he just comes off as too quirky sometimes. He does odd and quirky very well. I don’t, however, think that qualifies him as someone that other actors can learn off of. Diversity is great. We don’t want everyone acting wierd.
