Johnny Depp Covers 'Aspen Peak'
Here’s what the 48-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On what making The Rum Diary really meant to him: “Making The Run Diary was a fulfillment of a promise I had made to [author Hunter S. Thompson]. I had found the novel before it was published at Owl Farm. Hunter had it in his basement archive – The War Room – just lying around. I was floored by the elegant prose. I couldn’t believe he wrote it when he was only 22! And together we decided to make a motion picture of Rum. From the start it was collaborative. Now I’ve fulfilled the deal.”
On what his tattoos mean to him: “I consider tattoos my diary. I received my first tattoo as a teenager. My skin is a record of my life. Recently, right before coming to Austin, I went to Disneyland with Damien (Echols) of the West Memphis Three. He had just gotten out of jail. He wanted to see Disneyland so I took him. Afterwards we went and got tattoos together. That’s my way of documenting things in my life.”
