Johnny Depp

Depp, born in Owensboro, KY, is well known for his offbeat and bizarre choices of film roles, and yet somehow he's managed to maintain a career-long hot streak unparalleled in Hollywood, in films such as Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride, Ed Wood, Benny and Joon, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Dead Man.

Is the real Depp as weird as his characters? I certainly hope so. Knowing that the man proudly owns a used kleenex that Jack Kerouac once blew his nose on makes me suspect the answer is yes.
