The award was presented to Johnny by Jennifer Lopez, the 2004 Courage to Care honoree. In his acceptance speech, Johnny said he was humbled by the award and thanked the doctors and nurses of the Childrens Hospital Los Angeles for their generosity. “The courage that I have seen in the eyes of these little ones, that you don’t see anywhere else, is astonishing and inspiring,” said Johnny in his acceptance speech.

Charity Actions

Johnny Depp has participated in several celebrity charity auctions. In 2005, Johnny donated a shirt that he wore in the film The Libertine. Johnny sent the shirt to a British fan after she wrote to him asking if he could donate something to charity. The shirt was auctioned off on the internet; the winning bid was $3,000 and was placed by a woman from the United States. Additionally, an autographed pair of Johnny Depp’s briefs were auctioned off in 2004 and bought for £1600, allegedly by none other than British soccer star David Beckham, who was rumored to have had the underwear framed and hung proudly on his bedroom wall. The proceeds went to Helen & Douglas House, a UK-based charity.

I love the idea of changing my look. I think one owes it to the audience, to go out there and give them something different each time, so as not to bore them to death. And I always felt that if you're not trying something different each time out of the gate, you're being safe, and you don't ever want to find that place of safety. I like that, each time, before I even go in front of the cameras, the studio's reaction will be fear. They have those hideous pangs of fear where they go, "He's fucking killing the movie." And I can't argue with them, because I might be. But I just know for the character that this is the right thing to do. And I've always enjoyed hiding behind these characters. It's a strange thing, you're more comfortable as a character than you are in life. You know what I mean? I could stand up in front of, it doesn't matter how many people, as a character. But if I had to do it as myself and give a speech, I would be liquid.
