Johnny Depp

Born – June 9, 1963
Owensboro, Kentucky, U.S.

Actor, producer, frequent pirate.

Developed emotional issues as a child, because his family moved 20 times  … which would be sad if he hadn't grown up to be Johnny freakin’ Depp.

Dropped out of high school to be a rock star and moved to L.A. where he met Nic Cage who convinced him to get his head out of the clouds and be a movie star instead.

Was in the original "Nightmare on Elm Street," starred in "21 Jump Street," became a huge star.

Overcame the burden of his pretty boy good looks by playing a ton of oddball, unattractive characters.

Lives in France part time with his hot model girlfriend, where they doubtlessly stroll the grounds of their private vineyard, toasting to how rich and beautiful they are. Then they fly off to the private island he owns in the Bahamas for a weekend getaway. Yeah, your life sucks.

Was “People” magazine's “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2003 and 2009. 2004 through 2008 must have been difficult years for him.

Fun Fact: He has starred in every movie Tim Burton has ever made. Not really, but it feels like it. Hey Burton -- bring back Michael Keaton!
