Blind Items Revealed

June 16, 2009

This Academy Award nominated/winner A+ list actor doesn't get much publicity for all of the good he does, and so I thought I would share one of the things about him which he did for no reason other than being a great guy. While shooting a film our actor was introduced to a young girl. The girl had wanted to meet our actor for a very long time. Because she was dying of leukemia, her parents had asked Make-A-Wish to make it happen. For whatever reason they had not. Well, someone on the set heard about this little girl and asked our actor if it would be ok for her to meet him. He said sure, and the girl came. At the time she visited him she had a few weeks to live. When he asked about her medical treatment he was told there really wasn't any money. Our actor paid for all her medical bills and three years later she is still alive and still in touch with our actor.

Which begs the question....is Johnny Depp, in fact, the perfect man??

Impertinent Vixen said...

YES!! Way to go Johhny Depp! I've always loved him and he just gets better and better and deserves all the fame and fortune. How refreshing for someone who makes his living in Hollywood.

I've never heard anything bad about him. So happy he's such a great guy.

cajun cutie said...

~BellaBellaBoo~ said...

That was totally awesome.

ambernyc said...

MontanaMarriott said...

WOW
JD gets my full support from this point forward!

Harriet Hellfire said...

This one makes me all teary eyed *L*

sunnyside1213 said...

Amazing story. I too, am on the JD bandwagon. Guess I will have to see his new movie tomorrow.

The Aging Disco Diva said...

A gorgeous hunk o man and a wonderful heart. Johnny can definitely leave crumbs in my bed and I would not complain ;)

Cheryl said...

Finally some good news! A lot of people guessed Johnny and we all knew it was true.

According to some other sites, more than once he has dressed up as Capn. Jack Sparrow and visited children at the hospital where his daughter was treated a while back.

Too cool!

robert said...

Can't be a cynic on this one, he literally saved her life.

Sis said...

Awesome!

shazzzba said...

PERFECT...

sandman said...

damn, he almost made me gay with that reveal... don't you all wish you had the money to help a family like that?

kelsey said...

and just goes to show you can be in the business a looong time and not become a jerk.

Apple said...

It seems the only way to maintain a normal life and be an actor is to live outside Hollywood. Everyone that lives their year round turns into Ego douchebags. Hello James Woods.

Johnny was smart to hightail to France.

Karmen said...

Thank you so much for revealing this. I've always loved him and this just shows that his gorgeous face matches his beautiful soul.

bionic bunny! said...

oh, wow. yes indeedy, majik, the perfect man. AND he owns his own island and custom built sailboat.
this is a great story! it took him many years to become an overnight sensation, and it looks like he'll never forget it.
God bless him!

rtsew said...

I didn't need another reason to be in love with Johnny Depp, but I have one.

Safi K said...

that's so good of him. gotta love Johnny.

not on my dollar said...

This story gave me goosebumps. They said she had only a few weeks to live and after his visit she's been hanging in there for three years.


What a beautiful story and a beautiful man.

I can't wait to see Public Enemies.

Goodgrief said...

I love Johnny.

PollyPureBred said...

Beautiful. My ice-cold heart actually felt that one. Thanks for the reveal ;)

Dijea said...

One more reason to LOVE Johnny Depp!

Caroline said...

I have read that he also sets up tables when he is filming and will sign autographs and take pics with fans. What a truly kind person. There are many celebs that should take note if they ever hope in coming close to having the career he has.

PJ Nelson said...

My hero. It doesn't get much better than this, does it?

figgy said...

The rare celebrity who truly deserves his acclaim! <3

pomme said...

nice guy! but he never won Oscar!

pomme said...

Enty ,yours clues were false,he was nominated 3 times bur never won Oscar. Perhaps the next year for Public enemies!

Katja said...

need tissues... snif.
He just has always seemed like a 'good person' since 21 Jump Street.

The Writer said...

I have never been a fan of Johnny Depp, but this gives me tremendous respect for him. What a wonderful thing to do.

Nutty_Flavor said...

He is a lovely, lovely, man. AND he needs to stop wearing so much eyeliner, particularly when he is playing a Depression-era gangster like John Dillinger. Very distracting. But that is a story for another day.

La Pachuquita said...

wow, i think i just fell more in lust with him. hot and kind...wrap him up and I will take him to go!

Chantelle said...

Johnny is so amazing. I love that he is an actual caring genuine human being who hasn't let success make him into a monster a la Beyonce and all those other twats. Could this man be any more perfect?

Tania said...

Awww!
All these kindnesses (I'm talking about the newer reveals than this one, too) just make me tear up. I wouldn't say it restores my faith in humanity, cause, never happen...;-) But it does make me feel glad for having some good people in the world.

Jerry said...

Wow. Just wow.

AMD said...

Johnny Depp has never turned my crank, but I love this blind. One of the last genuinely nice people left in the business.

IndigoBlue said...

LOVE THIS!! Made me shed a tear....good job, Johnny!

Wonder Woman said...

yes, 10 out of 10. he just got bumped to the top of my List.

Wil said...

Damn!! I am not a huge fan .. like Johnny Depp's work and all .. but .. that was about it. Now I have just the highest regard for Johnny Depp. What a great guy!!

Emma31 said...

*heart melts*

I just want to put him in my back pocket :)

CaliGuy82 said...

I love this man more and more hearing all the wonderful things he's done for sick kids. Bravo, Mr. Depp! I wasn't really interested in seeing your new movie but damnit, I'll support you!

RocketQueen said...

*swoon*

Robyn said...

I wasn't sure there was a way to love him any more!
