Inner Keys to Success:


Johnny Depp has achieved a great deal of success due to his ability to stay real and do what he likes, regardless of what others have felt or thought of him. He doesn’t allow others to change his vision, he is more inspired by his own creativity. With his movies, he even chooses which roles he does, whether it’ll be a box office hit or not. He states “I am doing things that are true to me. The only thing I have a problem with is being labeled.” Depp earns a ton of respect from his fan base for keeping such a high level of integrity to himself and people can sense this from his uniqueness. Whether it’s his fedora hats, faded untidy jeans, leather bracelets or simply the tattoos that represent him, Johnny Depp is his own brand. “People think I make strange choices, but they’re not strange for me. My sickness is that I’m fascinated by human behavior, by what’s underneath the surface, by the world’s inside people.”


Johnny Depp Has More Fun With The Process Than The Final Product:

Depp has a strong passion for acting. He finds that the exciting part is doing the work, indulging in the role of the character and putting everything into his performance. Depp is interested in the process, not the product. He understands that enjoying the process is essential to achieving success. If you don’t enjoy the creating part, it’s probably not worth the rewards. In fact, Depp never watches his own movies, or cares what the final product of the movie looks like. Johnny claims to rarely watch his movies and he has actually stated he did not watch Public Enemies. He is an actor who immerses primarily in the creativity of his art rather than the external stuff. He answered in an interview “I’ve always kind of tried to avoid them as much as possible… I just prefer the experience. I like the experience, I like the process, I like doing the work. But then, you know if I’ve got to see myself – I don’t like to see the thing become the product, I suppose. Once they say “You’re wrapped” on the film, it really is none of your business. The director is going to take that performance or whatever options you gave him and the editor, and they’re going to do with it what they want.” His satisfaction is derived from challenging himself in the work. “I like the challenge of trying different things and wondering whether it’s going to work or whether I’m going to fall flat on my face.”


Johnny Depp Understands That The More You Give The More You Get:

And Depp is no exception, he understands how giving, from the heart and helping others is extremely important in life. His selfless acts of charity and financial donations to many projects in both the United States and Europe, show Johnny Depp as a philanthropist as well as someone who appreciates the basic joys of life. When his daughter recovered from a kidney related illness, he was extremely grateful to the hospital as he dressed in his Captain Sparrow outfit and spent 4 hours reading stories to the children and then donated roughly $2 million to the hospital. “Awards are not as important to me as when I meet a ten-year-old kid who says, “I love Captain Jack Sparrow” . . . that’s real magic for me.”

“There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.” – Quote by Johnny Depp
