I thought I was going to die when Johnny played the pirate in the Pirates of the Carribean movie. I stayed quiet, thinking, am I the only one who thinks he looks gay?Then I started to admire his acting skills and laughed at all his antics. Which one is your favorite Johnny Depp movie?

Oh, in Pirates of the Caribbean, he definitely looked gay! The funny thing is, though, that he "created" that character after his good buddy, Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones! (Keith is in the 3rd movie, by the way. Did you notice him?) My favorite Johnny Depp movie, I think, was 'Benny and Joon'. But 'Edward Scissorhands' is a close runner-up. Johnny Depp looks like my first husband. Shame my first husband and Mr. Depp have nothing in common! LOL

mentalward_ a Johnny Depp look-alike for a husband, but the wrong personality? Was it the physical attraction that stared the romance? I know I'd fall for some with Depp's looks. You are the second person who liked 'Scissorhands'. I didn't enjoy it. I wonder why did you like it? Depp is good at creating his characters, it's one of the reasons he's so good. I didn't know her used his friend Keith Richards to base his charcter on! I'll check out Benny and Joon.

Okay, I just read the previous posts. He didn't "look" gay in the movie, he "acted" gay.

I guess we're way off topic here. I don't know why people lie and trick another person. What do they think is going to happen? Maybe the abusers recognize people who can be taken advantage of. I would have been so scared on the night you spoke of. I'm trying to think of a different post where this conversation fits. I know I've got a few going about relationships, but I can't remember any of them right now! I'll watch for you in another post if we want to keep talking about men.

It's kind of a new release this year so search it on the net, and you'll find the review kind of interesting. This movie is much darker than Edward scissorhands and his other movies(^^,)

vermillion_ I don't do dark. There's enough dark in this world. I get too depressed when I watch movies that upset me.

Oh, that's a hard question!! I loved "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" and also "Edward Scissorhands" I've only seen one of the Pirates movies and yes, he looks gay in those movies! He's a wonderful, versatile actor that will probably rise to greatness.

dragon_ You liked 'Edward Scissorhands'? I saw that with my daughter when she was yonunger, she asked me to take her. Neither one of us like the movie. Thinking back, I never knew that was Depp. I never saw the eating grape movie. I hope Johnny Depp does become one of the great actors that make a lasting impression. He might just do it!

You'd love Gilbert Grape. Try to rent it. It's such a touching story and he brought such remarkable depth to his role of a young man who was prepared to sacrifice his future to take care of his family.

My favorite Johnny Depp movie is usually the last one he did! I love them all. All of the "Pirate" movies are great. I have some older favorites: "Nick of Time," "Secret Window," "From Hell," and "Chocolat." I am amused that you think he "looks" gay. I don't even know what you mean by that, unless you mean his gestures? lol If so, he adopted those for the "Pirate" movies. lol He's an actor...he gets into the characters he plays like any really good actor does. By the way, you can't tell by looking at someone if they are gay.

CherylsPearls_ I think you misunderstood my comments. I didn't mean any harm when I used the word gay. I know you can't tell by looking at someone and I wouldn't care if someone was gay. I guess I wasn't clear enough. Thanks for helping me straighten that out. I was referring to his gestures, not the man. I loved all the beads he had in his hair and that swagger was hilarious. Now I have to rent 'Chocolat' again. I saw it years ago, before I started to notice who Johnny Depp was. I never knew he was in that movie. Of course, I don't know the name of the woman actor either. I loved that movie!

My favorite is one that is not so well known. Its called Nick of Time. It is a very serious role for him and it was a edge of your seat type movie. Very suspenseful. If you haven't seen it maybe you could rent it.

The first third of the Pirates movie I just sat there looking at him thinking what the heck is he trying to do! I just couldn't decide for awhile if I liked his interpretation or not. I started enjoying him as the movie went on, and every movie since have loved him. I found out much later, he was modeling himself after Keith Richards supposedly. It sure was fun when Keith Richards made a guest appearance in the later movie. I think the Pirates series are my favorite Johhny Depp movie. he has made quite a few and some very strange. My daughter used to love "Cry Baby". I couldn't stand it.

whittby_ that's exactly what I was trying to say. I didn't know what to think of Depp in the beginning of the movie! He's so original and talented.
