Looks plus Talent is a rare combination and the best example of it is Johnny Depp. If I were to make the list of cool men in Hollywood I would place John Christopher Depp II on number one spot. He is my favorite actor. Depp was born on 9 June 1963 to waitress Betty Sue and civil engineer John Depp I in the town of Owensboro, Kentucky. Depp’s current life might impress you but his childhood was not at all an easy phase. His mother divorced his father in 1978 and the family went on to live in 20 different locations in United States before finally setting in Florida. His mother married Robert Palmer in 1980 and Depp soon found an ideal in him. However, Depp harmed himself on several occasions which resulted in several different scars on his body.
Depp was not interested in acting. He wanted to become a rock musician due to his love to guitar. He even dropped school to pursue his dreams. He formed the band The Kids which was moderately successfully however the band broke up before signing any deal. Depp then collaborated with Rock City angeles. However, it was due to an advice from actor Nicolas Cage (whom he met through his then wife Lori anne Alison) that Depp started to dream of becoming an actor. Depp got a chance to star in 1985 film Thrashin with his then fiancé Sherilyn but was later dropped out by the producers.
