Johnny Depp as an actor lives in two different dimensions. One part wakes up and starts being the eccentric Jack Sparrow or the nonsensical Willy Wonka.
The other grabs his suitcase and goes to work as a single dad or becomes a book dealer. Whatever be the flavor of the season, Johnny Depp movies always entertain and the character he plays leaves a mark.
It is because Depp has that elusive talent to get into the skin of character without losing his natural aura.
Apart from acting, Johnny Depp is also good with a guitar in his hands. His talents have been appreciated by rock legends like Joe Perry and Alice Cooper.
Due to his phenomenal acting performances in the Disney movies like ‘Pirates of the Caribbean franchise’, Depp has been anointed as a Disney Legend in 2015.
He is in the wine business as well and owns a vineyard estate in France. Depp also co-owns a restaurant-bar in Paris.

Just like any good-looking movie star, Johnny Depp has always remained popular amongst women. He has received People’s magazine’s “sexiest man alive” for 2003 and 2009.
No wonder, he has been admired and chased by so many women in his life. His first known relationship was with Lori Allison who he married in 1983.
However, the marriage with Allison did not last for long and the couple split in 1985. The same year he met Sherilyn Fenn, an actress mostly known for her TV show ‘Twin Peaks’.
Depp was so much in love with the actress that he even had her name etched on the helmet he wore in the movie ‘Platoon’.
But their romance gradually waned away and the pair parted ways in 1988, after being together for over 3 years.
Johnny Depp’s love life has no shortage of talented and famous women. He dated Winona Ryder (actress) for nearly 4 years, who was his costar in the movie ‘Edward Scissorhands’.

They were considered to be one of the hottest pairs of the 90s and constantly followed by paparazzi but the relationship ended after 4 years. In 1998, Depp met Vanessa Paradis on the sets of ‘The Ninth Gate’.
They instantly fell in love with each other. It was Depp’s longest relationship that spanned over 14 years from 1998 to 2012. Although they did not marry, Depp had two kids with her – John and Lily-Rose. It is speculated that the couple split because Paradis did not get along with Depp’s mother.
While still in a relationship with Paradis, Depp met Amber Heard during the promotion of his movie ‘The Rum Diary’. After Depp’s divorce, their romance went into overdrive.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard married in 2015 and it was supposed to be the start of long and beautiful relationship.
But it all went down the hill very quickly and there were even a few physical altercations between them. In the end, their divorce was settled with Depp paying Heard a divorce settlement of 7 million dollars. In the present, he is rumoured to be dating a Russian dancer by the name of Polina Glenn.
