I found this sweet article from timesonline.co.uk
PIRATES OF the Caribbean star Johnny Depp lives in a farmhouse “near St Tropez” with Vanessa Paradis and their two children.
“I was very lucky that something steered me to France. I came here in 1998 and immediately felt at home, really at home. It is still possible to live a simple life in France. You can go to the market, walk about, and buy your fruit and vegetables from the locals — just as they did here 100 and 200 years ago.
“I can walk to a tiny village from my home, sit in a cafe, smoke a cigarette with my coffee and be left alone. That’s what I enjoy — the cafe and, of course, the culture. We have moments when our kids are playing, and we look at one another and think, ‘Thank God we escaped.’ And I add, ‘Thank God for France.’ It doesn’t get any better than this.”
In a survey of 3,000 people, the actor Johnny Depp has been voted the epitome of “cool”. Not bad for a former teen star whose first film role ended in his being eaten by a bed.
It is a sobering fact but Johnny Depp is now 41 years old.
That fresh faced youngster, so famously devoured by his mattress in A Nightmare on Elm Street – all of 20 years ago – has matured into a thoughtful actor, capable of performances of real emotional depth and no little charm.
The next Depp film to hit the big screen will be Libertine, the story of the debauched life of the Earl of Rochester, the 17th century poet, rake and sybarite who died of syphilis at the age of 33.
And the life of the film’s star has mirrored that of the noble Earl.
“I think I lived the first 35 years of my life in a fog. I didn’t really know what I wanted or who I was,” he recently told an interviewer.
Hey guys! Here are some articles:
This is a short article on Pirates Of The Caribbean 2:
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer hopes to begin filming the sequel to his runaway hit Pirates of the Caribbean this fall.
“Johnny (Depp), Orlando (Bloom) and Keira (Knightley) are all committed to the sequel emotionally but not financially. That’s something we have to start working out,” says Bruckheimer. “All three are busy, expensive stars now. Johnny’s a $20-million man.”
Depp has said he wants Keith Richards to play Depp’s father in the sequel.
“Johnny loves the idea of having Keith in the movie because he used Keith as an inspiration for his performance, but the part isn’t in the script yet. If Johnny insists and Keith agrees, I think it’s safe to say it will be written in.”
Johnny Depp buys his own island
‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ star Johnny Depp has bought his own desert island.
The Oscar-nominated actor already shares homes in France and LA with partner Vanessa Paradis and their two children, 5-year-old Lily Rose and Jack, 2.
The mile long island is called Little Halls Pond Cay and comes with six white sandy beaches, a central lagoon surrounded by palm trees, its own private harbour and staff quarters.

I have no idea of how accurate is the article, since it also says that Johnny is filming POTC 2, which is still in pre-production…
Anyway, I’m uploading a lot of pictures and I will make a post once it’s done.
Here are a few more articles:
Movie actor Johnny Depp is so sword- happy from his time spent making ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl’ that he recently treated hotel guests to an impromptu sword fight in England.
Johnny, who is currently shooting ‘The Libertine’ alongside co- star Samanthe Morton, grabbed an old sword off a bar room wall at the ‘Noel Arms’ hotel in Gloucestershire and jokingly chased the chef for making an amazing pudding.
He’s one star with no hang-ups, someone who doesn’t fancy himself as being one. But nevertheless he is one in his own right.
He is Johnny Depp, christened as the new King of Hollywood after Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl passed the magical 408 million dollar mark at the box office. But he remains as humble as ever oblivious of his iconic status.
