YMMV / Johnny Depp

  • Big Name Fan: He's a big reader and music fan, and often name-drops his favorite bands in interviews to help promote them, including the gypsy band Taraf de Haidouks (who appeared alongside him in The Man Who Cried).
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: He's known in the UK for being the most prominent American fan of The Fast Show, even appearing in a cameo in their final special. He even inserted catchphrases from the show into Pirates of the Caribbean, including "...and they made me their chief." The other lines ended up on the cutting-room floor.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • "Starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter. Directed by Tim Burton."
    • Jokes about him being typecast as a weird character who's almost entirely hidden behind makeup are common on the Internet, particularly in YouTube comments.
