Johnny Depp Covers 'Vanity Fair' January 2011

Johnny Depp hits the cover of the January 2011 issue of Vanity Fair.

Here is what the 47-year-old Tourist actor had to share with the mag:

On the media attention on his co-star Angelina Jolie: “Poor thing, dogged by paparazzi, her and her husband, Brad…all their kids. There are times when you see how ridiculous is this life, how ludicrous it is, you know, leaving your house every morning and being followed by paparazzi.”

Comparing Angelina to a legend: “I’ve had the honor and the pleasure and gift of having known Elizabeth Taylor for a number of years. You know, you sit down with her, she slings hash, she sits there and cusses like a sailor, and she’s hilarious. Angie’s got the same kind of thing, you know, the same approach.”

On the appeal of his character in The Tourist: “I was always fascinated by people who are considered completely normal, because I find them the weirdest of all.”

  • Johnny

    On Hairpieces, Toupees, and Weaves : So far, so good .When I start shedding I’ll give Brad a ring.

  • old and moldy

    you stupid trolls I’m furst

  • Allie

    I like the way he called Brad her husband. It shows you don’t need a ceremony and big fancy theatrics to live as husband and wife…or do you?
    Is there something we don’t know Mr. Depp?

  • Next Day Air

    So basically Angie and Elizabeth are both alike by being husband stealers? oh yah that’s right.

  • tranqua

    @Allie: Maybe Johnny asumed? He doesnt look like the type to wikipedia other celebs.

  • lily

    This is the only man i would be willing to share with other women – because every woman deserves a piece of johnny!!
    He is so handsome and so genuine and kind and it is driving me insane!! I love this man and i’m not a fan girl usually lol, johnny brings this side out of me :( sigh…

  • Johnny

    On paying attention and giving a rat’s asz about the JP’s :
    What? Brad is not married?…Whatever

  • 11

    I love angie but she is no liz taylor.

  • Rebecca

    dang I can’t beleive he is 47. Still hot. 17 year old crush on 47 year old guy lol

  • AllForUSophia

    Much respect and much love Mr. Depp Sir!

  • A fan

    I love ppl call Angie Brad’s wife, Brad Angie’s husband.

  • beverly

    i feel like angelina and johnny depp fans don’t overlap. i dont think this movie will do well for that reason.

  • TXpert

    Depp is the man. I don’t have issue with age..but I must say THIS is what you’re supposed to look like in your 40′s …he’s grown into his handsome looks.

    But I’m noticing since he’s been doing the “Pirate” movies he loves wearing eye liner even out of character. Does he get this from Mr. Keith Richards?

  • just sayin’

    johnny and his fans – cool
    ang and her tramps – fools

  • 3434r
  • love

    @lily: you mean i have no choice but to share a man that i dont know who has no idea i exist? yeah..

  • equinox

    LOL husband stealers

  • Orchid

    @beverly: yeah eh? johnny doesn’t stand for the type angelina is. fame-power obsessed albeit a good humanitarian. hes a bit more laid back.

  • MrMarleyFAN

    It must be illegal for Dlisted posters to say anything even remotely positive about anybody or anything. Seriously. It’s a bit scary how deeply they dig within themselves for the most vile, debased, ugly pov to spew. I have a strong feeling that most are sunday school teachers and junior high school counselors.

  • sera

    Wow the jenhens are everywhere!!! They just can not stay away from anything Angelina. Obssessed much???? Angie owns their
    What idiots they are. They are still back in 2005. Love JD and how open andhonest he is. He loves Angelina and so do I.

  • Kristen


    I’m sure Depp probably just uses that term since he has been with a woman, unmarried, for a long time, so he’s used to the idea of using the terms “husband and wife” when you legally aren’t.

    Obviously, JD knows what he is saying because he has met Liz Taylor and got to know her. Have you?

  • Oololoo

    @11: Well johnny knows both so I trust his word over yours. I love how angle haters hate anyone associated with her. Lol so very lame!

  • Kirsten

    I love both of them, and Brad of course. They are so beautiful inside and out.

  • Oololoo

    Oops i meant angie

  • Kirsten

    I love both of them, and Brad of course. They are so beautiful inside and out.

  • van

    why dos everyone have to associate this with jennifer? what the hell does she have to do with anything?

  • zzzz

    I love johnny. He’s talented, sexy, and down-to-earth. I have to say, though, that if there was a picture of any other celeb smoking, there would be a slew of hateful comments about it. (Not from me) I think people can be very hypocritical about these things, and that if they want to hate on someone, they’ll look for something, like a cig., and use it to make a nasty comment. Just sayin’.

  • 11

    @Oololoo: Angie haters? I am a fan of hers but she is not Liz Taylor. Im unbiased and yeah. they are totally different.

  • Lake Lover

    What is normal, Johnny???

  • koala

    his assosciation with angelina totally f***** his image………………………..

  • zzzz

    @sera: Are you kidding me? What does any of this have to do with Jennifer Aniston??? And has it ever occurred to you that some of us, like me, think Jen, Ang, AND Brad are all cool?

  • 333

    @zzzz: nope it cant work that way to angelina fans. they think anyone who doesnt like her fringe or movie must be jennifers third cousin twice removed. they’re paranoid jennifer is out to get brad back.

  • kelly

    koala – hits the nail on the head

  • zzzz

    But 333, I’m an Angelina fan, and I don’t make the assumptions you’re talking about, and I don’t look at her and think of Jennifer.

  • 333

    @zzzz: good for you then, you’re part of the minority :)

  • Oololoo

    @11: yes angie haters hate on everyone and everything adsociated with the woman. Its qui te comical. and as I said johnny actually knows Elizabeth Taylor and angelina jolie so his opinion holds more weight than your opinion…in my eyes anyway.

  • Oololoo

    @zzzz: I’m with u on that one. What odd comments.

  • jealousss

    This man is too too too TOO fine… vanessa got it in the bag and i’m jealoussss lol

  • karmaback

    Johnny now you get to see how these fool react because you like Angie and was not afraid to say it and say it loud and clear.

    they are losing it.. just so mad and upset.. Why? because everyone that meet Angie has great things to say about her.. that the gush..

    well suck it up and stop acting like children that didn’t get that present you fools were wishing for.

    See Angie is all that her fans have claimed.. and everyone that knows her feel that way.

    I guess you fools better start the slow walk to hel! now.. LOL..

    LOVE YOU JOHNNY.. a man not afraid to tell the truth..

  • laverdadduele

    Of course he’s going to speak wonders of that s.l.u.t., they’re both trash and can relate in so many levels. BTW, that tool Brad, IS NOT her husband, he was someone else’s husband until she came along.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    karmaback @ 11/30/2010 at 10:29 pm

    The trolls are losing their sh$t again. They just can’t stand when Angies co-worker said very nice things about her.

    Boy, I can’t wait until The Tourist premiere. There will be a mass suicide. The haters will sure slit their wrists when they see Brad & Angie together. Johnny with his woman.

  • LadyB

    I think if Angie and Johnny were unattached and they happened to be date, their relationship would have gotten more media attention than she and Brad’s

  • Plastic

    Wow he is 47 he is getting up there in age…he is aging well tho

  • Layla

    Looks like a good interview. I don’t think Jolie is like Liz Taylor at all. That’s more Catherine Zeta Jones. Angelina is like…well like no one. Maybe Sophia Loren if anyone….

  • Jenna


  • truth is

    Ahh! these sh*t b*tches are angry that Johnny praises Angie because it contradicts on their lie few months ago saying that Johnny hates Angie. Always remember b*tches, truth will always comes out. And thank you Johnny for speaking the truth. I cannot wait for THE TOURIST.
