Johnny Depp is a very, very nice guy. I was very nervous but he was very protective of me and if you really want to know, he is a very, very good kisser." - Marion Cotillard. (mahfoozamazingnews.blogspot.it)
We’ve understood that if we want it to carry on working, it’s essential to give each other space. You don’t eat the same food every day, you don’t read the same book or listen to the same record over and over again. You have to discover things for yourself." - Vanessa Paradis in Jan 2010.
"I like watching him when he’s thinking, when he’s talking with people, I like seeing how he handles situations. I admire him as an actor, as a father, as a man. Above all, I admire the person he is. He’s fantastic." - Vanessa Paradis. (celebitchy.com)
"He's the love of my life." - Vanessa Paradis in Jan 2010. (celebitchy.com)

Angelina Jolie about Johnny: "He's just such a nice guy. He's so funny and so fun to hang out with. He's just that friend you're so happy to come to work and do scenes with. Plus, he's such a brilliant actor. He's often thought of so much for his deep character work, but it really comes from an artist who is willing to try things. He's not just somebody who's doing these fun [movies]; he's a real experimental deeply-feeling artist, who gives a lot and is very gracious on set to everybody and to his fellow actors. He's just a pleasure. " (popsugar.com)

"When we were on set of Edward, they shared a trailer. Sometimes they wouldn't come out. I got kind of worried because I didn't wanna walk in there and see something I didn't wanna see! But what I heard from people near the trailer, they were just doing boyfriend/girlfriend stuff. Ok, what's that? I'm 37! I don't know that stuff! But you know, Johnny is a sicko and he'll tell you anything that him & Winona do, so yeah. Not that I over heard or anything." – Tim Burton (May 1991) (cocainemango.blogspot.it)

“I know them both so well. Even if he’s with Vanessa now and has 2 kids, I think he'll return to Winona someday. Not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon. Don't tell him I said that!” – Christina Ricci (cocainemango.blogspot.it)
“I believe he never really loved Kate. I mean, I love Johnny like a son, but he never was the same. I believe, also know, he belongs with Winona. So many people try to tell him (and Winona) they should just talk. They never say anything. I know Christina also told Johnny (during filming of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) to call Winona. Christina is very, very, very close to Winona. They’re like sisters.” (cocainemango.blogspot.it)
“Winona kept him calm. Kept him cool. Not like out of control. I feel Johnny got arrested because Kate couldn't stop him from being wild and free. Winona could.” (cocainemango.blogspot.it)
About his split with Winona Ryder: “The split in 1993 was during the filming of Ed Wood & there were days he would come crying, I felt so bad. I asked him why it happened but all he said was, "It wasnt her fault, it was mine". And when he met Kate in January of `94, it wasn't the same as Winona. I felt weird to be around him like he wasn't acting like Johnny anymore. It's almost like Winona took Johnny's soul, Johnny's love.” (cocainemango.blogspot.it)
“He was so desperately in love with Winona, that when they broke up, he wouldn't admit it was over for the longest time.” - Tim Burton. (cocainemango.blogspot.it)

[about one of his old teachers asking for an autograph] I mean, what was I supposed to say? He`d failed me. I remember one time this teacher yelled at me so heavily in front of the entire class. He didn`t have any time for me then, and now, all of a sudden, he wants my autograph? They all thought I was going to end up a drug addict, in jail.
I hung around with bad crowds. We used to break and enter places. We`d break into the school and destroy a room or something. I used to steal things from stores.
I`d been in high school three years, and I may have just walked in yesterday. I had, like, eight credits. I was in my third year of high school and I didn`t want to be there. I was bored out of my mind and I hated it.
At first we`d wear T-shirts that said "Flame" on them. At 13 I was wearing plain T-shirts. Then I used to steal my mom`s clothing. She had all these crushed velvet shirts with French-cut sleeves. And, like, seers*cker bell bottoms. I dreamed of having platforms, but couldn`t find any.
[about living in the small town of Miramar as a kid] Miramar was like Endora, the town in What`s Eating Gilbert Gr*pe (1993). It had two identical grocery stores opposite each other and nothing much ever happened there.
My cousins had a gospel group and they came down and played gospel songs, and that was the first time I ever saw an electric guitar. I got obsessed with the electric guitar, so my Mom bought me one from them for $25. I was about twelve years old. Then I locked myself in a room for a year and taught myself how to play, learned off records, and then I started playing in little garage bands. The first group I was ever in was called Flame. Then I was in The Kids. They were the ones who moved to Hollywood.
I was a weird kid. I wanted to be Bruce Lee. I wanted to be on a SWAT team. When I was five, I think I wanted to be Daniel Boone.
(about his mother, Betty Sue) Years and years I watched her wait tables. I`d count her change at the end of the night. She cursed like a sailor, played cards and smoked cigarettes.
[about Edward D. Wood Jr.] Like him I also grew up feeling like an obtuse piece of machinery. It was the same feeling I had about Edward Scissorhands."
I`ve been around long enough to know that one week, you`re on the exclusive list of guys who can open a movie, and then the next week, you`re off the list. It`s been a fun ride, and I`m enjoying it for all it`s worth.
