Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean survives only by his knack for escaping the gallows. Most notably perhaps in Curse of the Black Pearl, but also in so many situations Captain Sparrow is always at risk of being executed.
Captain Jack Sparrow is always mindful of the likelihood of his eventual demise at the end of a rope. So also Johnny Depp has surely become aware that some people are perhaps just gunning for him.
Johnny Depp in real life seems persecuted, almost hunted by headlines that are less than flattering. Depp’s best friend, Marilyn Manson called it a witch hunt, saying Depp was being “crucified unjustly.” Johnny Depp like Jack Sparrow is apparently persecuted, by the forces that inexplicably oppose him. See this from the Inquisitr for more details.
Marilyn Manson defended the Jack Sparrow actor valiantly as quoted on Page Six.
“Lily-Rose is my goddaughter and I was there when [his son] Jack was born, so we go back. Johnny is one of the nicest people that I know — to the extent where it’s almost heartbreaking how kind he is to his friends and everyone around him. I know that he was completely crucified — unjustly.”
Johnny Depp’s career has taken some hard knocks in the past year or two. The once adoring press has turned on Jack Sparrow’s embodiment for reasons unknown. The critics had a go at Depp’s recent movies as well, perhaps because these high budget films were not the box office sensations they were hoped to be.
As Jack Sparrow returns in Pirates of The Caribbean however, Johnny Depp will in all probability redeem himself as a major box office draw. Still, the critics are skeptical, and bad reviews of this noble Pirates’ film franchise are all too common.
Still, Johnny Depp rules as Jack Sparrow. The nearly four billion dollar Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has been very successful in the past, but could a blockbuster hit save Depp from the avalanche of criticism he’s been getting?
Can Jack Sparrow save Johnny Depp from the critics if moviegoers turn out in droves for Pirates of the Caribbean? Perhaps so, but he needs to prove himself. What better place than the box office, and what better role than that of Captain Jack Sparrow to prove Depp’s credibility with fans?
Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell no Tales is the showdown in which Jack Sparrow will attempt to save Depp’s career from the gallows of the keyboard executioners that await his demise.
Johnny Depp’s fans will turn out in droves for Pirates of the Caribbean 5, buy memorabilia, and join in the rescue of Jack Sparrow and the actor who portrays him. In a very real way, Johnny’s destiny as an actor is riding on the success of this film, so fans are braced to deplete their wallets, but will enough people join them? Just how effective has the smearing of Depp’s name been?
Johnny Depp’s bad press has been relentless. One has to wonder why all these wild rumors are being hurled at Johnny. What started as a divorce scandal has escalated significantly, as his business managers at TMG released his alleged financial information, some of which has since been reportedly proven false.
Amber Heard, Johnny Depp’s allegedly vengeful onetime spouse, complained, before the divorce, that the press was always misrepresenting her life with Depp. ET quoted Ms. Heard.
“I try not to react to the horrible misrepresentation of our lives, but it is strange and hard.”
Johnny Depp’s career took some hard knocks and even Jack Sparrow’s life on film was postponed because Johnny’s personal life has been so rocky. The actor’s mom passed away, and within three days the Jack Sparrow actor’s young beautiful wife, Amber Heard, filed for divorce.
Amber Heard alleged that the day after her husband’s mother died, the two were having a “peaceful conversation” about his mother’s death according to ET. It was understandably a touchy subject for the Jack Sparrow actor. Amber is quoted on ET.
“[Johnny Depp] began obsessing about something that was untrue and his demeanor changed dramatically.”
Johnny Depp had just lost his mother, and something allegedly “untrue” was being discussed about her. Amber Heard alleges that Johnny then threw an iPhone at her, causing a bruise on her cheek. An iPhone weighs about five ounces.
This was just the beginning of the Jack Sparrow actor’s problems. Since then Amber has made many unusual allegations that have been reportedly refuted by Johnny’s friends, his other two ex-wives, and his coworkers.
Amber Heard isn’t the only one. Johnny Depp’s management company TMG has claimed Johnny uses an earpiece to have his lines fed to him. Again his friends and fellow actors insist this is untrue. Jack Sparrow reportedly says what he wants in the moment, and no two takes are exactly the same. TMG also released documents that the Jack Sparrow actor claims are not accurate in some cases describing the actor’s spending practices.
Johnny Depp is barraged with new and bizarre rumors, cruel comments, and strange accusations like the examples above. As Marilyn Manson says, it resembles a public “crucifixion,” which Marilyn and others who know the Jack Sparrow actor personally have decried as false and easily debunked.
Still, weird Johnny Depp rumors abound, as some in media paint a picture of Depp with a slanted brush. Johnny and Captian Jack Sparrow though, remain beloved icons, as evidenced by his 2017 People’s Choice Award for favorite movie icon, during the thick of a media scandal.
