    Hollywood execs must be completely stupid people! The guy hasn’t made a good or profitable movie in years! He is an arrogant, greedy and nasty person who needs fake girlfriends to keep himself in the news. He is an out of touch idiot, just like Tom Cruise or George Clooney.

    He likes these large-than-life characters. Too bad, as they’re completely boring to watch. Why doesn’t he try a straight-line thriller/action film for a change? I’m sick of the Captain Sparrows and the other ‘colourful’ characters he plays day in and day out.

  • JDF

    @Fresh: That’s funny because this is a straight-line thriller/action movie! There is nothing boring at all about the characters he plays.

    I don’t even remember the last time he played a “colorful” character, are you sure you’ve seen his latest movies? How is he playing Captain Sparrow “day in and day out” when the last time he played the character was 4 years ago and he only played 4 times? Unless you watch the Pirates movies everyday, I don’t see how you can get “sick” of Captain Jack.

    @UGRHH: Hollywood execs? Hahahahahahhaha, he’s got his own production company, he is a Hollywood executive himself. You want him to stop working just because you think he hasn’t made a good movie in years? Hahahahaha! Nobody cares that his latest movies weren’t profitable because it doesn’t have to do with the film they are making which could be good and profitable.

    Arrogant, greedy and nasty person????? Are you talking about yourself? Because that’s not Johnny Depp who nobody ever said a bad word about. He’s the sweetest and nicest person in Hollywood and he couldn’t be more down to earth. He is always so very, very nice to his fans and the people who meet him and work with him. Nobody who have met him ever said a bad word about him.

    Fake girlfriends to keep himself in the news? Hahahahahahahahahahhahahahahah, yeah right, I guess that’s why he’s only came out in public with Amber 1 year after they started dating and I guess that’s why he never talked about her and I guess that’s why he’s marrying her!

    He is Johnny Depp, he doesn’t need anyone to keep himself in the news. He’s always in the news because he’s Johnny Depp.

    You are the only out of touch idiot here if you believe the nonesense you wrote.

    He is the fourth richest actor on the planet and you want him to stop making movies? Keep dreaming you pathetic out of touch idiot.

  • @UGRHH

    @UGRHH: I hope you get fired from whatever job you have you Arrogant, greedy and nasty person.

  • mmm

    I’m so sick to open any link about Johnny and his career or whatever, and have to read all those gratuituos hate toward and amazing actor and one of the nicest people in hollywood. Just because he broke your “bubble” of stupid fantasies and fell in love with a woman, doesn’t mean you have to contaminate every article about him with this undeserved hate

    Are you his publicist? You went overboard defending him, not that he needed it. You sound like you have a vested interest in him. Juvenile name calling to boot. SMH

  • JDF

    @Joelle: Yeah because his publicist would visit a gossip site like this and defend him to nobodies! If I went “overboard” defending him it’s probably because they went “overboard” hating on him. Is being so pressed about him getting work not going “overboard”? Is calling him “Arrogant, greedy and nasty” person not going “overboard” and “juvenile name calling to boot” ????? SMH



    I always find it amusing how naive you are!

  • Rachel

    @li: so why is no one watching his films if he is so loved? People are sick of him and him midlife crisis.

  • TvGal

    I only come to JJ and read Johnny stories to see @JDF tear some unsuspecting sap a new one. @JDF, you are hilarious Cocoa Puff.

  • JDF

    @Rachel: Oh look another pathetic hater who posts in every JD article! How is no one watching his movies when his movies are only making money because of him?? His latest movies weren’t successful but they still made money

    Transcendence made $75 million so far and it didn’t even open in many countries yet.
    The Lone Ranger made $261 million
    Dark Shadows made $245 million

    Yeah right, obviously no one went to see these movies!

    He is still so beloved but people care so much about reviews and what the critics say, no one is sick of him and the only people who say that he’s going through a midlife crisis are gossip losers like you.

  • Kate

    @Rachel: I’m sick of people like you. Or should I say pathetic losers like you? Enough with this sick, undeserved hate! What has this man done to you? Why all this bitterness?

  • Jo

    A good role for Johnny !
