He is the youngest of four children. His parents separated when he was just 15 years. Johny was brought up by his mother and his step day Robert Palmer who died in 2000.

#  As a child he had too much stress and depression which lead him to involve in self-injuries. He has many scars all over his body which is a result of such self-inflicted injuries.

#  His mother gifted a guitar when he was 12 years old and from then he developed passion for music and dropped out of school chasing the dreams of musician inside.

#  Depp married Lori Anne Allison who is sister his partner in the rock band on 24th Dec 1983. She introduced Depp to Nicolas Cage and from then he started to take acting seriously. Depp divorced Anne Allison in 1985.

#  He dated many celebrities like Jennifer Grey, Sherilyn Fenn, Winona Ryder, Kate Moss and Vanessa Paradis. Out of his relationship with Vanessa Paradis he had two children, Lily-Rose Melody Depp (born 1999) and John “Jack” Christopher Depp III (born 2002).

#  Depp’s debut film was “A Nightmare on Elm Street” in 1984 the movie did well in the box office paving his way to Hollywood easily. His blockbuster movie series started with “Pirates of the Caribbean” in 2003 which was produced by Walt Disney. Immediately after these series he became one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood.

#  Depp formed his own production company “Infinitum Nihil” in 2004. His sister Christi Dembrowski is the president of “Infinitum Nihil”, The Rum Diary was the first project came out of his home banner in 2011.

#  He still loves playing Guitar, occasionally works for music videos and tracks.

#  He has more than 13 tattoos on his body each signifying special person or event in his life. Some of them are “Wino Forever”, “Lily-Rose”, “Betty Sue” “Jack” etc.


“My body is a journal in a way. It’s like what sailors used to do, where every tattoo meant something, a specific time in your life when you make a mark on yourself, whether you do it yourself with a knife or with a professional tattoo artist”

“You can’t plan the kind of deep love that results in children. Fatherhood was not a conscious decision. It was part of the wonderful ride I was on. It was destiny; kismet. All the math finally worked.”

“The way I live my life today is pretty consistent of the way I lived it back then, I just wanted to do whatever I wanted to do. I remember being 13, 14 years old, and just skipping certain classes and sneaking into the guitar room, and hiding out and playing in the music room.”

“Had things not worked out in my life the way they did, had I not found music when I was young, there’s a possibility I could have gone in a similar direction.”

“Every character you play has parts of you in it, and there’s some of me in Captain Jack. But now there’s probably more of Captain Jack in me now. He won’t leave me alone. He showed up this morning as I was getting my kids ready for school, but I managed to shoo him away.”
