Johnny DeppFound on wikimedia.org
John Christopher "Johnny" Depp II is an American actor, producer, and musician. He has won the Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor.
There is no doubt that Johnny Depp IS the best actor in the world. Hands down. I would love to see anyone else in this list match his versatility. The man started off with Edward Scissorhands and acted solely with his eyes. He followed it up with Ed Wood, Benny and Joon, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Donnie Brasco, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Sleepy Hollow, Chocolat, Blow and From Hell. And if you think that wasn't enough "range" the last decade has seen him rule the box office as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates series. His performance in Finding Neverland, Secret Window, Sweeney Todd, Alice In Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Public Enemies and a lesser known movie - but no less exceptional in term of Depp's performance - The Libertine are just superb. He is the best character actor in the world, naturally alluring with an intelligent mind and those deep liquid eyes. He is the sexiest man alive and to me the greatest actors list starts, continues and ends with ...more
I have seen many Hollywood movies. Recently I came across this guy. I am not that good in expressing or explaining but this much I can say that some one said the truth that, "He can be so funny, elusive, mysterious, boyish, wise, psycho, happy, sad, grievous, etc. And I believe every moment of his characters. " I was so influenced by Johnny Depp that I watched 8 movies in two days just buy downloading them and watching them one after the another. I am really influenced by this awesome actor. I learn many things when I feel his acting, expression and many things. It was just my opinion, you may agree to it or you may not. Thank You.
Not much to say about this "ENTITY" called "JOHN CHRISTOPHER DEPP" but if one subtracts the fantasy parts from his career, one will know what this guy's capable off! BLOW, THE LIBERTINE, DON JUAN DEMARCO, ED WOOD, FINDING NEVERLAND, PUBLIC ENEMIES, SECRET WINDOW, DONNIE BRASCOE, WHAT'S EATING GILBERT GRAPE, FROM HELL, THE 9TH GATE etc
People may BLAH-BLAH-BLAH about MARLON BRANDO but DO remember-JOHNNY DEPP has the nerve to have DIRECTED MARLON BRANDO man!
That's whats called CLASS! 1
JOHNNY DEPP has the SUBTLE ELEGANCE AND A VICIOUS AURA OF INVINCIBILITY that many don't posses!
No doubt Johnny Depp is #1! On-screen or off-screen he is the best. He has done a variety of roles in his career and yet he performs each and every role with excellence beyond measures.

It's interesting to me that Johnny Depp once asked, Where are all our Hollywood Icons?.. Meaning all the Great Actors of All Time.. Because he IS The Greatest Actor of this Generation! He can take any role and Become that character so intensely that he morphs into that Being like a caterpillar becomes a Butterly :) He is so versatile he can play Any Role.. Gentleman, Prince, Playboy, Killer, Candymaker, Hatter, Lover, FBI agent, Astronaut, Journalist, Pirate.. Captain, that is.. Ahem.. A 1, 000 apologies ;).. Novelist, Cop, Indian, Spy, Drug Addict, Gypsy, Psycho and even a Giant Lizard! Besides that he has given to over 20 Charities.. And people don't even know! :) He's just THE BEST! Overall.. Johnny Depp.. When his name is mentioned, people pay attention because he is Incredibly Unique.. One of a Kind.. When God made him, he broke the mold!
My opinion? I'm not able to give you an opinion. Firstly, I'm Italian, and English sure isn't the thing I do better. But secondly I'm an Italian, little girl, an unknown tiny point in an unknown tiny city, and he's something bigger than all the people, bigger than the world. I'm here, and the only thing I can do is to vote for him, every times and everywere. But I'll never give up dreaming! I speak English like a stupid, Arab, old lady, ( and maybe I'm writing Arabic for you), I'm in a horrible city in the opposite part of the world, about no one knows my name, and neither my passion for acting, and maybe the only people who know that I LOVE JOHNNY DEPP, they think that I'm a stupid, capricious and naive child. But when I see his eyes, or his hands, his feet moving, I find the aim of my life. Anyway, my dear, he should be the number one. At least of the actors.
All the little girls here will just say how cute he is, which is a bunch of bull- you don't judge an actor on their looks, but on ability.
That is why Johnny Depp is the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be.
Give the man any role, and he'll play it perfectly. Look at what he's done: Fear and Loathing, Sleepy Hollow, Sweeney Todd, Pirates of the Caribbean, Public Enemies, and the list goes on... He is simply the greatest actor I've ever seen, and I know a thing or two about movies (I own a LOT, new and old). - the_dude_abides
It truly hurts me to see Pacino and Deniro as low as they are, but I gotta agree, nobody has the range of Johnny Depp, he can play everything from an Opium and Absinthe addicted Psychic detective to a serial killer to queer ass willy wonk and do it all well. No one has his range. This list is better than most, but still sucks, Pacino is #2 def, Dicaprio belongs here and higher former teeny bopper mag cover dweller can turn into a good actor; actually it's a good list, w/o the foriegners, and David Duchovny, they're just in the wrong order - psychokiller32
Freddie Highmore: "His choices have always been incredibly interesting. What made him such a special actor is that he manages to play so many different people. You see Finding Neverland or Pirates of the Caribbean or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-- they're all incredibly different. As a person, he shows you that you've got to keep your feet on the ground and he's one of the most down-to-earth people that I've ever met. And I think that says something for so many people that have built him up to be a star. He's got a fantastic talent for acting but he doesn't think he's better than anyone because of that."
All of this is true and summarizes why he's the best. He can play as anyone in anything and doesn't like to brag about himself just for that. No wonder he is such an inspiration to everyone. If anyone says he's underrated, that's a mistake because his talent and ability to be nice and normal to everyone is to good for that. He's the best there is and should be #1.
There is no one that can be compared to Johnny Depp...he is simply amazing. There is nothing he can't do, his movies are never the same and he has the ability to become a whole new person every time he brings a character to life. He is the best actor ever and the best part is that he doesn't care what other say about his work, he takes the roles that inspire and speak to him. He is great. # 1 without question. - qarra
He is the best! The way he portrays Jack Sparrow! Gosh! *DEAD* He's so amazing in all his movies and that's the reason his movies earn so much love and money. He's the best actor in hollywood... beyond any comparisions. He's hot, sexy, awesome and the best thing about him -One can't believe it's Johnny Depp who's portraying the character... its the character all alive!
Oh, I love him. He is... Simply fantastic, sometimes I catch myself thinking that he is not a real person, but the magnificence of the universe that has come to earth to make shine my eyes... There are no words to describe him as an actor, because he can not be compared with the other actors... You should not even write his name in these rankings, because he is higher, and many people fail to understand. I love him.
I love Johnny Depp! Best Actor alive. I love him in pirates of the carribean AHH! He's so funny but when you think he's trying to be funny in the movies he's being sincere. I love him as jack sparrow because of his body language he always moves and talks almost like he's drunk or tired or something but when he's doing it its funny not over the top stupid!
Johnny Depp is such of an amazing character actor. He definitely puts 100% of himself into all of his roles to deliver the character. At the same time, he remains very connected to the world. His acting is exemplary. He is also a wonderful role model and mentor. His beauty, charm, and creative talent merge together so beautifully as he continues to mesmerize with his spirit and unique style.
He's my favourite actor! Actually, I think of him as one of the few people in the industry who really understands what an actor is.
And that is versatility.
He has made a whole bunch of movies and he always plays difficult characters and SO different between them!
But the thing about this characters is that he plays them so well that he BECOMES the character.
Every single one of his roles is completely believable. He can go from a tragic demon barber to a sweet and innocent Edward Scissorhands, to a mysterious Ichabod Crane, to an epic but drunken, loveable pirate, to a troubled Gilbert Grape, to a Mad Hatter... Etc.
Johnny Depp is an extraordinary actor! He can act, he can sing, and damn he is hot!
Johnny Deep your an amazing actor. My dad thinks your an amazing actor, too. I really loved it when you played in Alice In Wonderland. It was so awesome and funny I just wish to see it every day. I love it when you laugh in that movie it's just a funny laugh. I wish you can come to me and laugh like you did in the movie you will make me laugh so hard that I won't stop.
I don't know what movies the masses who voted on this list see, but apparently, they missed seeing Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, or even the late Clark Gable... Sexy is good, sure, but acting is what counts here the most folks. The sexiest movie stars of all time would go on ANOTHER list... Right? At least Brad Pitt is not on this list... His co-star on the Fight Club would be a good top ten contender along with James Spader.
The fact that this guy hasn't won an Oscar is a crime. He's talented and gorgeous yet at a young age he decided not to become a typical "poster boy" actor and takes on obscure roles and changes his image to suit the role, which a lot of mainstream actors seem afraid to do and as a result look like themselves in their movies.
Johnny Depp is so good at acting! Did I say good I ment great! One of the first PG movies I watched had him in it. Disney's best movie is Pirates of the Carribean. The only reason it is is because of Johnny Depp. I am captain jack sparrow? Genius! You Rock Johnny Depp! - boocarolina1234567890
I love Johnny Depp, he's a very agile and diverse actor, I love all his movies... The ones I have seen anyway and not to mention he can sing, I have seen Sweeney Todd and I loved the movie and Cry Baby I loved that movie as well... So all in all he's a decent human being for all the things he's done, not to mention he's sexy as all hell, I'd let him eat cookies in my bed anytime
Johnny Depp is my favourite actor, but for me he isn't only a simple star of Hollywood, he's fantastic, original, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes good and sometimes cruel, but I love him, he's really a special person, there isn't anyone like him in the world.
Johnny Depp is the best actor and I love his movies. He sing very good too, I've watched the movie "Sweeney Todd" and I really liked the way he sing in it. It's not only that, he is the most sexiest man in the world, I LOVE HIM!
I don't think he is sexy but the man can act! He is very diverse and agile. He can be so funny, elusive, mysterious, boyish, wise, psycho, happy, sad, grievous, etc. And I believe every moment of his characters.
Let me put it this way... Johnny Depp is one of the greatest actors of our time, jumping from one compelling character to the next, from Jack Sparrow to Victor Van Dort to John Dillinger - you name it, he'll do it. And he is the most beautiful man in Hollywood if not the WORLD! Put this together, people: He's a great actor, he's (so) beautiful, he can SING (see Sweeney Todd), he can PLAY GUITAR (see Chocolat), and he can SPEAK French! My question is, can he fly? (and if he can, I would not be suprised! ) VOTE FOR JOHNNY.
Johnny Depp is probably the best actor ever, I believe. Also, out of him, Jim Carrey and Leo DiCaprio, he's my main favorite. He can play anyone and make it feel real enough for many people to want to see his movies no matter what they're like; plus, he doesn't think he's all that, which makes it even better. This is why his friend and co-star, Freddie Highmore really likes him and has always tried to be like him as an actor. He likes that Johnny is both talented and nice all at once, which makes it easier for people to enjoy what he does. This just shows how inspirational he truly is and I can't get enough of his amazing talent for acting. Overall, he always incredibly versatile.
