Johnny Depp Buys Over $62,000 in Jackets for Pirates Crew
A lot of actors think they're God's gift to the world and the absolute star of the show, but Johnny Depp knows that it takes a whole crew to make a good movie. So when Depp rolls in style, the whole film crew rolls in style.
On a rainy day on the set of his latest film "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," Johnny Depp reportedly spent about $64,200 on warm jackets for all 500 of the crew members. True, that ain't a whole lot of money--considering the fact that he owns an island and a $13 million estate in Italy--but it's still a grand gesture and awesome thing to do.
The guy is classy to say the least.
Depp has also been very public about his love affair with wine, even sporting his famous tattoo "Wino Forever" (although it once said "Winona Forever" when the actor was dating the cute, thieving fellow celebrity Winona Ryder). He is so enthusiastic for good wine, in fact, that he even flies crates of them to wherever he's filming for himself, the cast and the entire film crew.
He did this on the set of "Public Enemies" where he had ten crates of his homegrown wine (Yes, Johnny Depp even owns his own vineyard) flown in from France to keep him and the rest of the crew going. That's 4,147 sky miles for a never-ending pour of wine.
Johnny Depp Goes Out of His Way to Speak for Wrongfully Convicted Trio
The West Memphis three wrongfully convicted of the murder of three eight year old boys found in a drainage ditch thought to be part of a Satanic ritural. The boys were found mutilated and beaten to death.
Damien Echols 19 at the time, was sentenced to death. Jason Baldwin 16 and Jessie Misskelley 17, were sentenced to life in prison.
"If there was the tiniest sliver of doubt [of their innocence], I wouldn't be here" said Johnny Depp after being asked why he supported them and how he could be sure if they were innocent.
Arkansas courts refuse to give the three a retrial, but Depp continues to publicly stand with them in their cause to be tried fairly.
There is absolutely no physical evidence that ties the convicted three to the actual crime scene.
After seeing a documentary, Depp became deeply intrigued and empathetic to the case of the three and continues to go out of his way to defend these innocent men that Arkansas courts refuse to try fairly at every chance he can.
Most celebrities, especially Depp, have a lot going on every single day with promoting their films, and making shoot dates, as well as living their own lives, yet he continues to make efforts for causes he can directly impact just like this one.
