Hats Off To Johnny Depp

6/17/2008 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

12-year-old Jack Taylor from Wisconsin has good taste in headgear.

Recently the young lad met Johnny Depp on the set of his new film "Public Enemies." His one request? He wanted the fedora Depp was sporting during the meet n' greet. Depp said he'd gladly pass it along when he's done with it.

After Jack's parents sent a letter reminding the production company of Depp's promise, they received a box in the mail. Inside ... the hat!

No word on which kid got a hold of the finger knives Depp wore in "Edward Scissorhands".

That was sweet, he flimed "Whats Eating Gilbert Grape" here years ago in a small town out east. He was a classy guy to all the locals and they still talk about him a Leo. Good guys in Hollywood do exist.

Pretty demanding and greedy f'ing kid and parents. They should be happy enough with even MEETING "The Depp".

He is so true to his fans

He is such a great guy. You should do the article on him recording his voice as Jack Sparrrow for those parents who's little girl is in a coma. They asked him to record his voice in hopes she would wake up hearing it was him.

He has such a heart. I love Johnny Depp!

He's actually a really nice guy. a friend of mine got to meet him once during some red carpet event, and he was very gracious to all of the fans, signing as many autographs as he could in the time he had, posed for pictures with fans and was saying how flattered he was by all the attention.

I, of course, still get po'ed whenever she brags about it and pulls out her depp picture. (Mostly because I'm a bigger fan of his than she is. Lol)

but yeah. He's a great guy from everyone I've talked to who has ever met him.

He seems like a very real person in a profession filled with fakes.
I have always liked his movies and seems very appreciative of all the good things that have come his way.
A lot of people could takes some lessons from him.

That just shows how kind-hearted and gracious he is to his fans. Im glad he stepped in for heath ledgers unfinished role in "parnassus". Only another kindred spirit like johnny could fill heath's shoes.
