    Johnny hides too often behind ‘charicatures’ intead of truly creating characters. He does his best work when hiding behind make-up and costumes. That isn’t true acting, that’s play acting. Leo, IMO, does a MUCH better job of creating a character without hiding.

    @6: I agree that Leo is also an excellent actor, but at least Johnny is willing to take risks, which hardly anyone is willing to do. Johnny started playing ‘caricatures’ with Edward Scissorhands, but has done many movies that are not like that. What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Donnie Brasco, Blow, etc.

    Honestly, I can count Hollywood actors with actual talent on one hand and that makes me sad, and I agree with you, Leo is also up there.

    don’t agree with you. i’m not saying he is the best actor ever. but a lot of make up doesn’t mean hiding or whatever. this is part of the character, it just helps to feel the person u play .

    I like a lot of Johnny’s films.. but come on people.. the man is just not that hot.. terrible teeth and he always looks dirty. I don’t care what anyone says. Yes he is talented.. but sometimes I just feel like he takes the money and runs. NEVER hear about him doing anything until he has a movie to promote. He needs to step away from the Burton model. It feels like the same rehash stuff. When he does those ‘caricatures’ it feels too much like the same character. You can talk him out of any Burton role and put him in another Burton film and it all seems the same. And that outfit he is wearing looks very dated…

    I am going to get attacked.. but who cares. I speak the truth..

    @#12 You are joking right? Everyone is entitled to their opinion so if you don’t like the Tim Burton/Johnny Depp films fair enough. But do you really actually think he just takes the money and runs? There have been videos on you tube and stories from fans about how nice he is (like when he was filming Public Enemies) and there was a blind item on Crazy Days and Nights about an actor who paid for a young girl’s cancer treatment and still stays in touch with her. She was dying and wanted to meet her favourite actor so the actor agreed and when he found out her parents could not afford all the necessary treatments for the girl-he paid for everything and the little girl is still alive today. Guess which actor it was revealed to be? Johnny Depp. So I hardly think he just takes the money and runs. He just doesn’t call up paps to broadcast all of his good deeds.

    Johnny is one of those rare actors who not only is a genuine and generous person, but a talented actor with both longevity and credibility. True, he’s definitely aged and become more of a quirky family man, but he’s still very hot, especially for 46. The fact that he is an intelligent, compassionate, sensitive, and cool person makes him more attractive than any of his (still stunning) physical attributes do. Plus, he has excellent taste in literature and music- much more attractive to me than the clothes on his back.

    Johnny’s said for years that he likes to hide in films (under clothes, makeup, even his long hair) because a.) he doesn’t like watching himself onscreen and b.) because it’s what’s required for the role. His character Edward Scissorhands said more with facial expression, even under all that makeup, than any dialogue ever could have.

    Yeah, I know, I sound like an obesessed fan, but I don’t care. Johnny definitely has flaws, and he sometimes dresses like a hobo, but his talent and his good heart mean more than his quirks. :)

    @lola:

    Give me a break.. just because the tabs know about charity donations does not mean that someone called them up.. Those records are public records.. open for anyone to see. I stick by what I said. and yes we hear about all his great deeds when he has a movie to promote.

    Public Enemy was the first role in a long time that he has played a normal looking person. Sad that all his die hard fans did not elevate it to a blockbuster. Yes the movie did OK. but well below expectations. I will underscore what I have said and again say that I do like a lot of his movies.. I enjoyed the first Pirate movie but after that I felt that he did like many other sold out for the money.. Those movies are now just cheesy.. and overrated. the First was Great the later horrible on all levels.
    Neverland was good, but again not the blockbuster one would expect from someone that many claim is the best in the business.

    again I respect him as a performer.. but i do feel he is a bit overrated and that to me is the flaw.. Daniel Day Lewis is a master.. Phillip Seymore Huffman.. a genius.. I don’t think Johnny is there yet. His roles are too cartoonish.. Yes the talent is there, but they all seem like the same character. He should have been a STAGE PERFORMER.. Not a movie star.. I see him in theater more then on film.

    honestly, how could anyone say that he’s overrated? He IS one of THE best actors of all time. His character’s are not all “the same”, even when working with Burton. Compare Sweeney Todd to Willy Wonka, i think they’re very different.

    He is my fav actor, along with Leo & Robert Downey Jr., all amazing!

    I think it’s hilarious when people criticize Johnny and only bring up the movies he’s done in the past 5 years. Are you guys all 16 years old? Get your a$$es down to the video store and rent some movies that were made before the year 2000 and then come and talk to me.

    If you think Johnny is overrated, that’s cool, you are entitled to your opinion. I just have a hard time taking anyone seriously that is going to bring up Pirates as a point of argument. LOL!!!!

    jaye Says:

    He’s a very good actor. He does tend to play quirky characters, some don’t have mass appeal, but you have to give him his due; he makes the kind of movies HE wants to and that’s been happening for a long time. He’s a man who looks his age, but what the heck, we all eventually do at some point and he doesn’t give a c*rap about looking hot. I’m not into the Burton/ Depp love fest, but I don’t see it ending any time soon.

    True he’s done some commercialized movies in recent years, but it certainly isn’t a crime to be in movies that have mass appeal and make money. As for the statement that he hides behind make up, no amount of make up can make you believe that he is the person he is portraying without good acting. Movie making is fantasy anyway, with or without make up.
