These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
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.
Tear Jerker: Just read his comments on the deaths of his friends Marlon Brando and Hunter S. Thompson. The latter called Johnny and left him a phone message, and when he heard of Thompson's suicide and went to listen to it, it had somehow been erased. "That will fuck with me forever," he says.
The Woobie: His life kinda sucked before he made it big.
