From Jack Sparrow to Edward Scissorhands, Depp’s characters are as distinct as they are memorable. Which one best matches your star sign?

Aries – Detective Tom Hanson (21 Jump Street)

Aries tend to impulsively follow their hearts, even if it means violating against rules, just like Tom Hanson in 21 Jump Street. The undercover cop often has good intentions in mind, but his poor timing and horrible luck make him seem inadequate at his job.

Regardless, detective Hanson gives it his all while out in the field. Though he begins quite motivated, he becomes wracked with guilt later, something Aries are highly susceptible to. The unfortunate murder of his girlfriend that happens right in front of him causes him to lose his sharpness due to trauma.

Taurus – Gilbert Grape (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?)

Johnny Depp in What's Eating Gilbert Grape

An underappreciated ’90s classic, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? is one of Johnny Depp’s best movies. Straying from his common character traits of the dark and unusual, Depp’s coming-of-age role as Gilbert Grape is as heartfelt as it is responsible, similar to those under the Taurus sign.

In the film, Gilbert must juggle mourning his dead father and caring for his shut-in mother and his handicapped younger brother. It is challenging for Gilbert to find balance between his familial obligations and his aspirations throughout the film, yet he stubbornly refuses to lose focus on what’s important.

Gemini – The Mad Hatter (Alice In Wonderland)

Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland

With a double-sided personality that is equal parts eccentric and empathetic, Depp’s depiction of the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland is as Gemini as it gets.

The Hatter’s charm is infectious, but he also has a darker side to him, something that is characteristic of the Gemini sign. This is clearly viewed in the movie when the genocide of his people at the hands of the Red Queen is reminisced about with sorrowful rage, the very event that sparked the anarchistic tendencies of the character.

Cancer – Edward Scissorhands (Edward Scissorhands)

Johnny Depp Edward Scissorhands

Edward Scissorhands may be Johnny Depp’s most iconic character and his most impressive performance. Even though it was the first of Tim Burton and Depp’s legendary collaborations, it became an instant classic thanks to the film’s irrefutable uniqueness.

Edward’s timid and innocent nature is a common trait of Cancer folks. He may not be full of charisma, but the scissor-handed man’s soft-spoken attitude and ironic gentleness won the hearts of viewers effortlessly. However, like Cancers, Edward can become dangerous when backed into a corner or if a loved one is threatened.

Leo – Barnabas Collins (Dark Shadows)

Johnny Depp as Barnabus in Dark Shadows movie

Barnabus, the aristocratic vampire of the movie Dark Shadows, lived a lavash life before he and everyone he loved were cursed by a witch. After the deaths of his entire family and his true love, the lone bloodsucker had great difficulty coping with trauma, much like a Leo.

To prove that his parents were murdered, he becomes obsessed with dark magic, vengeful of the witch who walked free of the crime. He maintains his poised grace and intelligence, two common Leo traits, while he is in perpetual anguish as an undead creature.

Virgo – Sam (Benny & Joon)


It’s almost odd to see Johnny Depp in one of his most rom-com roles, aka Sam in Benny & Joon, but the eccentricity he consistently nails still shines through.

Sam has a charming quirkiness and loves with his whole heart, unconditionally, which is a staple of Virgos. His attention-grabbing nature is exactly what makes Joon, as well as the audience, fall for him. Sam’s illiteracy causes him to have a unique form of physical comedy and shows his dedication to family when he learns to write letters to his mother, similar to the Virgo sign.

Libra – Ichabod Crane (Sleepy Hollow)

Johnny Depp as Ichabod Crane in Sleepy Hollow

The extremely logical Ichabod Crane is up there on the list of Johnny Depp’s most iconic characters, his stubborn and skeptical attitude perfectly embodying that of a Libra. Like many of his other roles, the character is dark and gloomy, but in a way that is entirely distinct.

His reluctance to admit that the case of Sleepy Hollow’s headless horseman is anything other than an elaborate sham of the supernatural and his thoroughness in proving so only further indicates his star sign placement, since Libra is quite literally the scales of justice. He sees every side of the story despite being misled by guilty figures around him.

Scorpio – Sweeney Todd (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street)

Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd in Sweeney Todd

The dark horror musical movie adaptation of Steven Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd stars Johnny Depp as the titular “demon barber of Fleet Street,” and it takes the cake as one of Depp’s angriest roles. The character’s perfectly represented vengefulness stemming from devastating heartbreak fits right in with the Scorpio sign.

Depp teams up with Helena Bohnam-Carter to give viewers an experience like no other, with its musical elements aligning greatly with its dark story. Todd himself already looks dead, torturing himself mentally in a vicious cycle just waiting to erupt, which is characteristic of a Scorpio who has been wronged one too many times.

Sagittarius – J.M. Barrie (Finding Neverland)

Johnny Depp as J.M. Barrie in Finding Neverland

J.M. Barrie is a true departure from the gloomy characters of Depp’s other films, highlighting the relationship of a playwright whose family influences him to write Peter Pan. His childlike imagination, genuinely, and creativity all categorize him as a Sagittarius.

Furthermore, the Barrie’s calm composure and elegance are not only what earned Depp an Academy Award nomination, but showcased the perfect realism he is capable of. These traits, accumulated alongside J.M.’s underlying sadness, solidify the validity of his star sign in Finding Neverland.

Capricorn – Willy Wonka (Charlie And The Chocolate Factory)

Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

The peculiar Willy Wonka is so unlike Depp’s usual roles that he seems like an entirely different person, which is a huge compliment. His over-the-top workaholic life indicates that he is a Capricorn, who often submerge themselves in their ambitions to the point of fault.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory shows Depp as the chameleon he is when acting, yet still maintains the presence of the intrinsic sorrow his characters are known best for. The Capricorn inside Wonka keeps a white-knuckle grip on his inner child and treats his business like his own beating heart.

Aquarius – Captain Jack Sparrow (Pirates Of The Caribbean)

Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl

It should come as no surprise that Depp’s most famed role of Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies has the makings of an Aquarius, specifically due to his unapologetically outlandish and adventurous nature.

The pirate’s personality seems to be completely fortified by his insane quirks and unique way of going about things, with more than enough heart to win over any audience. It is these unique traits that both keeps the wind in his sails and lands him ashore as an Aquarius.

Pisces – Victor Van Dort (Corpse Bride)

Johnny Depp as Victor Van Dort in Corpse Bride

In Corpse Bride, the fifth collaboration between Johnny Depp and director Tim Burton, Depp takes on his first and only claymation role, bringing Victor Van Dort to life classically. The character’s strive for hope in a dull and gothic world, where he is arranged to marry a woman he barely knows, makes him one of Depp’s most unforgettable roles.

Victor does his best to keep those around him pleased, much like a Pisces, but his awkwardness and klutzy nature often put a damper on things. The sweet, timid young man slowly earns confidence as the movie progresses, thanks to the friendly undead. Victor’s love of art and music are defining Pisces traits, using them to gain the admiration of others.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
