Taking on the role of infamous bank robber John Dillinger, Johnny Depp explains how he perceived the professional criminal in order to bring some pathos to his character in Public Enemies.
“On some level there was a sort of a Robin Hood in John Dillinger and he used that. Dillinger was extremely savvy for a guy who basically came up from nowhere. He knew that his love for the people and the people’s love for him would work in his favor,” Johnny told the Associated Press at the premier for the film, which also stars Christian Bale and Marion Cotillard.
Johnny was decked out for the event in typical style, a jacket-less three-piece suit, sunglasses and shaggy hair, while Christian Bale opted for a more buttoned-up look on the red carpet.
And French actress Marion Cotillard was sweet in a strapless, frilly pink summer dress. Utterly arresting, all of them.
