Johnny Depp Talks To Coma Victim

March 26th, 2008 // 8 Comments

Whoah, this is the first time I’ve ever actually thought Johnny was looking a little old. I guess perfection can’t last forever. Either way, he’s still hot, one of my favorite actors and a charitable human being to boot. The star of Pirates of the Caribbean personally recorded a voice message for a coma victim. Sophie Wilkinson, a 17-year-old from Southampton, England, was in a car crash that nearly cost her her life. She survived, however, has since been in a coma.

At the request of her parents, Johnny recorded the message for the British teenager and they were overjoyed that he responded to their request. According to the girl’s father, “We are looking for the key to wake her up, so we wrote to Johnny and he said he would do the recording in the voice of (his Pirates of the Caribbean character) Jack Sparrow.”

Johnny knows all too well the feeling of a distressed parent, having had experienced a similar scare when his daughter, Lily-Rose, was in the hospital suffering from kidney failure last year. Since then, he has also donated nearly $2 million to the hospital where she was treated.

    I didn’t think I could love this man any MORE, but this is so fantastic of him to do. What a treat for the girl, huh? I know for a FACT that I would wake from a coma if I heard whispering in my ear, “Dyani, Captain Jack Sparrow does not wait! Savvy?”
    uh, I just melted.

    Johnny’s eccentric (which is cool), but he also seems like a really good guy. I’m on Team Depp.

    The writer thinks Johnny looks old??? Every other article I’ve seen since he started filming Public Enemies has commented on how he looks much younger with his hair short and clean shaven. Personally, I prefer the long hair and facial hair, but it all grows back!

    I think most of us would probably look a bit weary if we all worked 12-15 hour days on a movie set and then stood around afterwards greeting 200 fans in line as he did in Columbus, WI before leaving the set that night.

    Yeah, I read about this also on this other site. Johnny is a really good guy, because I don’t believe he’s building himself that image and trying hard to be humble. I am in Love with Captain Jack. If I heard him saying my name I would… be so happy ^_^

    Johnny is getting old, and to be honest, I love it! Sweeney Todd had real lines I thought it was great. That may be a bit weiird.. um excuse me :x
