One of the greatest actors of his generation, though in my opinion, THE greatest actor working today. The sheer acting ability of the man is amazing, but he is also very intelligent in his roles, is not afraid to go with his instincts or roles HE wants to portray, and has never (and would never) resort to relying on his appearance.
Five reasons he's the best
1. He's intelligent.
2. He's interesting.
3. He's very laid back and acts like a regular guy.
4. His roles are insanely diverse, and he's fantastic in every one of them.
5. He loves what he does.
Now that we've got the professionalism out of the way, Johnny Depp is also one of the most fuckable guys on the planet, and his creation of Jack Sparrow has deemed him forever a Sex God. He is sex on toast, but he's also a brilliant actor, an interesting person, and just really *nice*. If you've only seen PotC, watch his other films.
I want to sleep with Johnny Depp.
Johnny Depp looks better in eyeliner than I do!
