Early life: Johnny Depp
The actor’s full name is John Christopher Depp II. On June 9, 1963, he was born in Kentucky to a couple named John Christopher Depp, who was a civil engineer, and mother, Betty Sue Palmer, who worked as a waitress then. After his biological parents were divorced, Johnny was raised by his mother and step-father, Robert Palmer.
At a very early age, he dropped out of high school to pursue music and made it a career.
Johnny Depp Career:
In the early stages of Depp’s music career, he formed a band called The kids, where he was a guitarist. They performed in Florida very successfully and then moved on to L.A. to look for recording labels. They even changed their band’s name to Six Gun Method so that they were taken seriously by professionals.
Before The Kids could crack a deal, they broke up as a band. Johnny then joined hands with the Rock City Angels band. Johnny made his debut in the industry with a song that he co-wrote, ‘Mary’ with Young Man’s Blues.
He then made his film debut with ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street, a horror movie. His acting career began from there, doing significant roles in multiple films back in the 90s, such as Edward Scissorhands, Benny, and Joon, What’s eating Gilbert Grape, Sleepy Hallow, etc.
Depp was a part of magnificent movies that brought him fame tremendously. Alice and Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Pirates of the Caribbean(four sequels), made him the highest-paid actor in the industry and, in fact, in the world.
Depp bagged quite a few prestigious awards in his career to date for the outstanding work he has done.
Depp has had quite a dating life in his history. Starting from his first wife, Lori Allison, who got married to him in 1983 and soon called it off in 1985. He was then engaged twice to Jennifer Grey and Sherilyn Fenn, but that didn’t work out either. Depp later dated model Kate Moss from 1994-98 and Vanessa Paradis after that.
Johnny’s love life was and has been clearly a mess.
His relationship with Amber Heard started during the shooting of his film, The Rum Diary. And they were married in 2015, but soon Amber filed for divorce in 2016 and took alimony from Depp after a settlement of $7 million. The case was closed, but Depp came back at Heard by filing a defamation case for $50 million after she penned an op-ed in the Washington Post.
Depp has had an amazing career making him the highest-paid in recent years. His current net worth of $150 million might be falling, but he is still earning enough, and the wealth will go up as his future projects lined up. He is a legendary living actor most known for his character in Pirates of the Caribbean.
His personal life has been in the news for quite a while now, and we soon hope to see Depp back in action on the sets.
