Golden Globe winner Johnny Depp attended the Paris premiere of SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET last night, January 16th, and signed autographs for fans waiting outside the theater. I added 38 pictures from Johnny and Tim.
Also I had forgot to add the pictures from Tokyo press conference, so added 50 new ones.
Note: I’m working in a total revamp of this site, with a complete update of all pages. This site is SO outdate, some pages was last updated in 2004, some pages never was updated since this site open doors. You can expect a BIG surprise when I finish it.
Johnny is on the cover of the Feb. 2008 French Premiere magazine. The picture isn’t new, but the title couldn’t be more right: “Johnny, the magnificent”.
Also, in the new issue of Radio Times:
Steady ladies! This week we’re chatting to none other than Hollywood heart-throb Johnny Depp, who’s soon to be back on the big screen wielding yet more sharp implements as he takes on the role of the demon barber of Fleet Street, Sweeney Todd.
He and director Tim Burton join us on the eve of their South Bank Show appearance to try to explain where their magical outsider chemistry comes from. And yes, there are pictures…
Thanks to part-time poet and emma, from the JD-Zone Board, for the heads up!
“I would like to thank my beloved friends at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for bestowing such an honor on me. It is a humbling experience, especially in the company of such talent. For many years the HFPA has supported my work and for that I have always been truly grateful. While this is indeed a happy day for me, I am overjoyed at the recognition the film as a whole is receiving. TIM is a dear friend and a true artist whose vision and skill inspire us all. He is a genius. Without his unwavering trust and support, I would not be anywhere near where I am today. Also, big thanks and respect to HELENA, whose simply staggering performance as Mrs. Lovett is a wonder to behold. I must send a behemoth salute to the wonderful crew and cast of ‘Sweeney Todd’ and all at Dreamworks/Paramount and Warner Bros. Pictures. In addition, I’d also like to extend my sincere gratitude to, first and foremost, my cherished friend and agent of forever ago, TRACEY JACOBS; the extraordinary man and producer, RICHARD ZANUCK; the mastermind STEPHEN SONDHEIM; and, of course, my precious family, VANESSA, LILY-ROSE and JACK, for all of their love, support and pure and absolute happiness everyday. Overall, I believe it to be a proud achievement for everyone involved and on behalf of us all, I thank you.”
This was posted @ The Insider, I was so curious (and certainly you, too) to read what Johnny said about his GG. Go Johnny, you deserve it.
Johnny Depp secretly visited Great Ormond Street Hospital yesterday to donate £1 million of his own money to thank staff for saving his daughter’s life.
He arrived unexpectedly at the London children’s hospital where eight-year-old Lily-Rose was treated last year when her kidneys failed.
Last week he invited five Great Ormond Street doctors and nurses to the party for the London premiere of his film Sweeney Todd.
And on November 29, unknown to the public, Depp spent four hours at the hospital telling bedtime stories to patients dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow after having his Pirates Of The Caribbean costume flown over from Los Angeles.
Congratulations to Mr. Depp, for his Best Actor, Musical or Comedy Golden Globe Award for his role in Sweeney Todd!
Sweeney Todd was also awarded as Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.

[Film Guardian] After facing off against Russell Crowe in 3:10 To Yuma and Heath Ledger’s Joker in the upcoming The Dark Knight, Christian Bale is preparing to go head-to-head with Johnny Depp. The pair will star in Michael Mann’s crime thriller Public Enemies. Bale will play FBI agent Melvin Purvis who led the hunt for the 1930s bank robber John Dillinger, to be played by Depp. Filming is expected to begin in March before a possible actors and directors strike on July 1 forces Hollywood film production to grind to a halt.
Added 80 pictures from latest night, where Johnny was attenting the SW’s Premiere at London.

Depp plays a serial-killing barber in a grim story of revenge set on the grimy streets of 19th Century London.
The movie sees Depp team up with director Tim Burton once again for the murderous musical.
The pair have worked on several films together including 1990’s Edward Scissorhands and more recently on a remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
The film also stars Burton’s other long-time collaborator and real-life fiancée Helena Bonham-Carter, who gave birth to the couple’s second son last December.
