Johnny Depp, his tears, loneliness and financial problems

Johnny Depp, his tears, loneliness and financial problems

In an interview with Rolling Stone Johnny opens his doors and its intimacy with the world, including use of drugs and alcohol

I posted this piece before but I could not re-edit it. Unfortunately WordPress is one of the pages that this old PC with not too many software installed can opens.

I am so sorry I mismatched the name of the reporter.

I am sorry with the interested people and my readers. I wrote this piece in a complicated day, plenty of interruptions.

Unfortunately when I post on WordPress I can’t see visualized the page wonderfully well. So if there were also ortographical errors, please try to understand.

Here the piece about Johnny Depp and Rolling Stone.

 

 

Recently Johnny Depp met a reporter, Stephen Rodrick by Rolling Stone.
“This could be your Pulitzer” he told him once arrived to his mansion in London, one of his favorite places.
The journalist spent 72 hours with the actor, finding Johnny not at his best and this is worrying, although, he adds, his eyes are still stunning and the ones we all remember very well. Johnny Depp has always been one of the best voices of Rolling Stone. I have the piece written by him when Thompson passed away and his numerous interviews at the magazine.
When Johnny wants to tell something important to someone via press he picks up Rolling Stone.

What caused this terrible and so hard existential moment for Johnny?
Why not yet over but where possible more profound?
Why did he fall and why is it so difficult for an actor like him to return at the normality?
What’s wrong in this process of healing?

Each of us will find some answers reading this long interview published by Rolling Stone.
Johnny didn’t call the magazine for telling them what it is going on in his existence at the moment but for speaking about his financial situation.

Johnny considers his life “Plenty of betrayal.”

Depp as we know sued his management group and some relatives, being sued by his past management group as well.

Johnny Depp started to experience problems on the set.
His agent and lawyer abandoned him.

Stephen Rodrick tells that Johnny’s day starts after dark ending at the first lights of dawn. The reporter has never met Johnny Depp during the day only during the night.

I didn’t like a lot the phrase in the interview: “If his current life isn’t a perfect copy of Elvis Presley’s last days, it is a decent facsimile.”
It’s terrible to make comparisons. People are different, their life-stories are different. It’s impossible to serialized or stereotyped existences.

Like also comparing Johnny Depp at Dorian Gray the character created by Oscar Wilde not maybe the happiest choice. That fictional character was horrible. Johnny is a good man I guess with some problems to sort out at the moment but substantially innocuous.

In the article is reconstructed Johnny’s life and a long portion will  involve Betty Sue, the mother.

Great friendship with Tim Burton his collaboration with him created many, wonderful poetics movies.

Johnny Depp lost an important friend River Phoenix when he was the owner of the Viper Room. After that, for respect, every Halloween’s Eve, the Viper Room was closed for remembering that horrible fact.

Johnny considers his financial situation as reported by Rolling Stone in this way: ” I didn’t see the movie, and I didn’t understand the script, but here’s what it is.

The economical conditions explained in a detailed reconstruction.
In all this intricate story also the marriage and divorce with Heard.

Johnny Depp started to feel depressed.

He tells to Rolling Stone: “I kept trying to figure out what I’d done to deserve this. I’d tried being kind to everyone, helping everyone, being truthful to everyone. The truth is most important to me. And all this still happened.”

Johnny Depp wants to return to filming when some of these intricate (it’s so complicated, you will read) financial problems will be resolved. A french book he wants to adapt and direct.

When the reporter left Johnny Depp’s mansion, Johnny thanked him for listening. The reporter admits that the house where Johnny Depp lives is like a “gilded prison.”

Johnny presents good movies, original ones, and what I love of his movie is this lightness.
He treats sometimes pretty heavy thematic with a great light touch and once you finish to watch one of his movie you are delighted and absolutely satisfied because it remains the beauty of what you have seen, plenty of poetic touch.

Dear Johnny, stay strong and be well soon!

The message of Murder on the Orient Express

Posted in Johnny Depp by Anna Maria Polidori on December 24, 2017

Why is it so important Murder on the Orient Express and the message contained in this book and in the movie where Johnny Depp is part of?

The thematic of murder is not just seen through the perspective of a crime committed in this case against a baby in the past, but dynamically.

It is analyzed the possibility of a revenge after a certain amount of time and the legitimization of a murder when the crime committed  too inhuman and horrible for being forgiven or forgotten.

Suggestive book I am a real estimators of all works by Agatha Christie for the intensity of her stories and plots.

Christie loves to portraying claustrophobic situations where people are blocked or invited somewhere for maybe find death.

These stories presents more suspense and psychological knowledge of characters.

 

Enjoy the movie!

Davy Jones to Montone for the Umbria Film Festival

Posted in Johnny Depp by Anna Maria Polidori on July 9, 2017

It is wonderful everytime to attend the Umbria Film Festival.

Yesterday night although it was dramatically warm no exception. Watching the movies of the Umbria Film Festival is a beautiful experience.
I attended various editions in the past in part as member of the press for Il Corriere and sometimes just as spectator.
Yesterday night the key of the town presented to Bill Nighy.
Love Actually, Pirates 2 and 3. I watched the picture of this actor on Google and I thought: “Who was in Love Actually?” The American President? I saw the movie two times, I adore Hugh Grant, but…I couldn’t locate his face. And what kind of role played in Pirates?
I googled the net: bloody hell, Davy Jones? Oh God, we are close to the Olympus I thought.

The funny rock-star of Love Actually? Bingo! So hilarious! I remember a line. When they asked him why it is beauty to become famous he said: “Because they present you every drug for free.” I remember his eccentricities. A character I loved a lot in that movie.

I decided to bring with me my mom.
I don’t know but I think that it is great to let her know which is in part my world, the one I dedicate some time of my existence, since I met online some people connected with Johnny Depp and other actors as well and who these people and actors are.

Mom really enjoyed to follow me, curious to seeing the star and other people ad well. I also added her: “Don’t worry mom we will find some fresh weather at Montone.”

It was the opposite: terribly warm, when we arrived we ate an ice-cream that was our dinner, but in terms of calories, eating an ice-cream means to eat a dish of pasta, so it’s more than OK and plus it’s refreshing.

We found a place in the last line and waited for the arrival of the actor.

I noticed a colleague from Gubbio with which I talked at long. He works for RAI TRE and it is great to seeing him and some other faces I know, like most of the ladies I know because they are part of the committee of Books of Dogs.

In the while we met the responsible of the press for the Umbria Film Festival. She asked us which were the press and TV stations we worked for, thanking us because she saw some articles published in our newsmagazine these past days.

I asked if it was possible to take a picture with the actor asking him some questions as well. “You know I have a blog dedicated to Johnny Depp, it would be nice a pic with Davy Jones.”
Her answer was that only the editors of newsmagazines and magazines could stay close to the actor for asking some questions. For the rest he was a bit armored she told us. Theoretically I am the editor of my blog, but I understand that a magazine and newsmagazine is something different and I thought at my poor career as reporter. “Anna Maria no negative thoughts, this time be less shy, less sad and more courageous! It’s your world this one.”

Well it was a sort of Fantozzian’s story at first. I saw immediately the entrance of Mr Nighy and I decided to start to taking some pictures and I marched in his direction secure of myself. For once. When I was close to the actor ready with my Amazon Fire to take pictures, the disappearance of the actor. I felt a great nervous! But is it possible? At my arrival people evaporate.

I haven’t considered that he could be sat somewhere in the tables close to the big screen, I thought that they decided to keep him behind one of the opened doors of the palace, for the big entrance.

But I was wrong.

He was peacefully sat in one of the tables close to the big screen of the Square Fortebraccio, waiting again for being called for the prize.

He was so funny, but British humor is the best one in the world. He started to saying us that with this key during the night he would have started to asking to the citizens of Montone for some food and drink.

Later he also revealed us that his first flame was from Umbria. I wouldn’t be surprised. Colin Firth married a lady from Umbertide.
But no: it wasn’t true. He told us this one was the first time for him in Umbria and he really enjoyed , he told us to staying here.
Very tall, thin, the first idea is that he is an intellectual guy, and I guess a very funny man.

I took a video I just hope to post at some point one of these next weeks, and pictures that I must download yet.

Enjoy in the time this tale!

Johnny, Trump, Lincoln and Kennedy!

Posted in Johnny Depp by Anna Maria Polidori on June 23, 2017

Dear Johnny,
I know what you think at the moment: that Donald Trump is not maybe the best President of the world (I am a  reporter but I don’t write for a big newsmagazine, pass me these diplomatic considerations) but I jumped when I read what you said in a news read in the Boston Globe.

Yesterday you were at Glastonbury. You asked when was the last time that a President assassinated adding: “I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it has been awhile and maybe it is time.” You talked of Lincoln and John Wilkes.

I thought: “Oh bloody hell now we don’t have just ISIS asking for fanatics people to commit suicide-homicides, we have also our Johnny saying that?”

Lincoln….He was killed who knows why by John Wilkes in 1865. An actor of your same importance and fame. No more nor less. Was there any sense for that act? Why black people hadn’t to be free?  Why these people had to be slavers of someone else because of their skin color? Why?
Why killing a man who had just started a process of largest democratization?

Lincoln was a wonderful man to me. His life was hard. He was a common man with great values, and living in real life helped.

It was Kennedy. John Fitzgerald Kennedy. The last one killed.
You know well this.
I always see that imagines and I can’t find peace.

When I was little I had this little encyclopedia called 15 and there was this picture of this flame in one of that books. It was the grave of this man, called John Kennedy, a President of the USA and there was written that this light is always “lighted.” For remembering someone unforgettable. I returned often to see this picture.
I didn’t know at 6-7 years who Kennedy was and his role played in this world but I remembered that grave and that light.

Dallas 11/22/1963, a first shot, a second, with the third a part of brain of President Kennedy flies away from him and Mrs Kennedy run away from that terror. Better: she tries to.
A homicide without a killer.
I tried to download the autopsy of the President and his brother Robert time ago but then I gave up. It’s…hard. You feel that sensation of death and you think: OK let’s wait. I am emphatic.

I know, I know that you were joking about Trump, but…

It’s just that the situation is pretty heavy and substantially I wouldn’t want the departure of anyone, including President Trump.
He is a business man but yes maybe he is not able to be the proper President that the USA deserves.
And substantially it’s not a failure to  admit it.
Absolutely. I have always thought that this role is for someone able of great diplomacy and not for everyone. It’s important to staying connected with people and the base, to “reading” the necessity of real people, and to seeing also the world in its evolution.

I don’t know what will happen tomorrow, Johnny but what I would want is to return in the past, when the Twin Towers still existed, NYC was famous because of the romantic movies by Nora Ephron,  and not because of this act of terror: I dream a world of peace, and I dream the past, when the world was less difficult, and when there was hope for tomorrow. Since that 9/11 this one is my principal thought: the terror.

Life is becoming fatalism and I hate it. I don’t love to think that we are in the hands of terror.

People should return to be all more ethical and maybe the world would be a better world.

Ciao Johnny I read in the Washington Post and Hollywood Reporter that you apologized.

I apologize for the bad joke I attempted last night in poor taste about President Trump. It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.

Big hugs and much love

Very happy that this time Rotten Tomatoes didn’t win!

Posted in Johnny Depp by Anna Maria Polidori on June 3, 2017

OK: The Inquisitr arrived before but I thought to realize a piece remarking this the day after Pirates was launched: that for once Pirates defeated Rotten Tomatoes and the sum of negative critics (many good as well) expressed by many critics of big and small newsmagazines and realities in the entire territory of the USA.

Box office and Rotten Tomatoes became my biggest friends or enemies these latest years and every time a Johnny Depp’s movie out.

This time viewers didn’t listen anything or anyone.
They just went to the cinema for enjoying a moment of escapism and only God knows the necessity of some de-stressing moments considering the times we are living in.

More important has been the card played by Jerry Bruckheimer a real test on the viewers according to my point of view: “Without Johnny Depp no other Pirates will be realized!”
Producer Bruckheimer maybe said that words in fact also for trying to see if the solid base of Johnny’s fans and Pirates fans were still there waiting for him.

People trusted Johnny Depp and they went to the cinema, free again to adore their Jack Sparrow.

Fans never abandoned the saga, never abandoned their favorite characters, never abandoned the ideas of wild adventures with Jack Sparrow, the more educated William Turner, Captain Barbossa and the new entry: Captain Salazar.

Do you know why? Because dreams are priceless.

BRAVI BRAVI BRAVI! You all deserved it!

Posted in Johnny Depp, movies, Pirates 5 Dead men tell no tales by Anna Maria Polidori on May 31, 2017

I knew that!
That luck was back, negativity over, hardest phase deleted by a fresh wind.
I knew that a new start was going on and I am truly happy for all the team of Pirates 5! starting from producer Jerry Bruckheimer a real man plenty of gratitude and good old values able to make the difference in this world, directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg screenwriters Jeff Nathanson, Terry Rossio,
Ted Elliott , Terry Rossio, Stuart Beattie, and Jay Wolpert, actors Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush, Javier Bardem, Kaya Scodelario and all the rest of the wonderful workers behind the scenes who worked for creating Pirates 5 Dead Men Tell no Tales. What a prophetic title…

This Pirates will pass at History as the 12th movie with the biggest opening, it will pass at History because there was a lot of turmoil on set, but also thanks to this, determination stronger for working hard and for creating a wonderful movie.

I know very well that when a creative process is suffered, then there is success, happiness.

Viewers understood problems, and turmoils and a difficult human phase and at the same time they missed Captain Sparrow from a long time like also all the rest of the protagonists. For all these reasons no one could lose the opportunity to going to the cinema for seeing it.

This one is a great result because this great team have always believed that although all the adversities, it could have been more than possible not just to reach this goal but to return winners with a great Pirates.

Pirates will always be the most loved Disney’s franchise and I strongly doubt that Johnny Depp can retire too soon from his role of Jack Sparrow like also I wish to seeing back again also all the rest of the historical cast of Pirates for other adventures!

Bloody hell, congratulations to everyone! again!

Bruckheimer an old-fashioned man with real values in his heart

Posted in Johnny Depp, movies by Anna Maria Polidori on May 26, 2017

Jerry Bruckheimer and his gratitude and friendship with Johnny Depp

Jerry Bruckheimer to me is one of the most grateful men existing in the face of this Earth.
His respect and consideration for Johnny Depp considering the role Depp has played during these many years of collaboration with Disney, an iconic brand for children and teenagers is endless.

Johnny Depp thanks to his personal visionary world created great iconic movies like The Corpse Bride, Alice in Wonderland and sequel, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Today the producer specified something: without Johnny Depp Pirates, an eventual Pirates 6 wouldn’t be created.

It’s a story of gratitude and great friendship the one between these two men and creatives.

At DigitalSpy Bruckheimer specified: “The secret to any successful franchise is picking talented people, and Johnny is absolutely key to the success of Pirates.” He also added: “Jack Sparrow is still the same guy he was in the first one. He’s still out to get what’s good for him…” About Johnny Depp he added: “We’ve worked together on six movies now and he’s just an amazing individual.”

But…Which is the philosophy of movie-making for Bruckheimer? He said: “You have a kitchen in your house, right? But you still go out to eat… If something drags you out of the house it’s usually good food. We have to make really, really good movies to make people stay away from their televisions. And that’s exactly what we do.”

So, what we hope is that Pirates 5 will be a great success and that the final choice of Johnny will be the one to continuing to play this iconic role so loved by children and people all over the world and one of the most entertaining characters ever created in the history of cinema.

Good Luck Pirates! I am very happy that you are back!
