Hollywood is certainly filled with so many talented actors, actresses, directors, producers, and singers. No wonder there are so many birthdays celebrated in the entertainment industry! There are three types of people celebrating their birthdays. While some prefer to be loud about their birthdays and love to throw a massive party for their friends, others prefer a very low-key affair involving only their family members and close friends. Lastly, there are few celebrities who don’t fancy the idea of celebrating their birthdays for reasons unknown. One such actor is Johnny Depp. You must be wondering, “How old is Johnny Depp?” Well, today marks the actor’s 53rd birthday. His birthday will no doubt have fans watching his movies or listening to his songs performed by their band Rock City Angels and Hollywood Vampires.
Happy Birthday, Johnny Depp!
Depp was born John Christopher Depp II. He was born on June 9, 1963, to Betty Sue Palmer, who was a waitress, and John Christopher Depp, a civil engineer. Depp spent most of his childhood living in different cities, but the family eventually settled down in Miramar, Florida, in 1970. When he was 15 years old, his parents got divorced and his mother ended up marrying Robert Palmer, who—according to Depp—was a source of inspiration to him.
Depp was fond of playing music from a very young age. He even dropped out of the high school to become a rock musician. After a little bit of a struggle, he collaborated with the band Rock City Angels. The story behind how Depp entered the music industry is quite interesting. His wife at the time, Lori Allison, who worked as a makeup artist, introduced him to Nicolas Cage, who advised him to make acting his career. That’s how his journey into the film industry commenced.
The actor has worked for several major films such as Platoon, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Pirates of The Caribbean and its sequels, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland, and many more. He is considered one of the most successful film stars in Hollywood, and has bagged several awards including a Golden Globe for Best Actor.
Depp has had his fair share of relationships in the past. His recent relationship with Amber Heard didn’t go down very well. They met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2012 and subsequently started dating. The duo got married in February of 2015 in a private ceremony. However, just 15 months after their marriage, Amber Heard filed for divorce and requested a restraining order against Depp due to domestic violence.
She stated that Depp had been abusive and even released a picture of her bruised face, which shows the injuries she obtained after Depp threw his phone at her face. There is enough speculation about whether he really abused her physically, but this year certainly does not seem like a good year for Depp. First it was his mother’s death then the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard divorce.
The actor has not made any comments about the situation. He has been busy performing in various countries with his bandmates. Whatever the situation is, we hope that he has a happy birthday. There were enough speculations about Amber Heard’s pregnancy. Many people even claimed that Amber Heard could be pregnant. Whether these are passing rumors or the truth, only they both know for sure.
