Johnny Depp in … Johnny Depp

Posted on May 11, 2012

We don’t quite get the latest iteration of Johnny Depp.

Johnny Depp attends UK premiere of “Dark Shadows” in London.

Elderly gay rancher in New Mexico? Because that’s really all we can see when we look at him.

We hate to be boringly traditional about this, but we sure would love to see him in a well-tailored suit and tie. This quirky shit was cute 20 years ago but it’s looking increasingly ridiculous and pretentious the older he gets.

We always think he must sound like a wind chime when he walks, what with all the beads and straps and bits of metal hanging off him.

Johnny, please stop being an elderly gay wind chime. Just for a little while.

    Maybe he feels like he can get away with it because he hasn’t actually aged in those 20 years.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

      Which is unfair considering that he apparently smokes like a chimney.

      • http://twitter.com/jaythenerdkid Aaminah Khan

        RDJ is the same – a misspent youth full of fucked-up choices, and there he is, looking better and better every day. There is no justice in the world!

    • Julian Betkowski

      Yeah…, no he has. He might not be wrinkly, but he’s looking awfully drawn lately. I worry that the reason he only takes roles that require him to be coated in makeup is that his skin is to thin and dry to actually express emotion without it being painted on.

  • formerlyAnon

    I can’t be objective. I almost always thinks he looks wonderful.

    I have a few quibbles – the jacket could be oversized but a bit *less* oversized, and that skinny scarf is a half-measure he should have ditched – but I think he looks way better here than in some of his more Goodwill gypsy looks. 

    Now, when he starts sporting grey locks past his shoulders, however groomed, it’ll be time to spare us, retreat to France and cultivate an adopted-Gallic eccentricity.

    • JackieOBlue

      I, too am always unable to be critical of him although part of me would like to see him cleaned up a little.  But again, that  quirkiness is what makes him Johnny Depp. 

      • bellafigura1

        Same here.  Objectively he looks ridiculous.  But I forgive him utterly.  He can do whatever he wants (including schtupping Eva Green, whom I do not like!).  He’s just better than everyone.

        • siriuslover

          Yes, agreed. Both he and Robert Downey Jr. can dress however they want and I still love them.
          However, I will say that his goatee thing is meh.

  • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

    It’s like everyone involved with this thing sent their most stereotypical waxwork to poledance. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1344922354 Eric Scheirer Stott

    To pull off a 2 tone jacket like that you’ve got to go with perfect styling- either Country / Western or Ricky Ricardo. More importantly it has to FIT. 

  • Sobaika

    Whatever, Johnny. Wake me when you shampoo your hair.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    he and Jack White should form a band, he can replace Meg….

    • Terence Ng

      He did that years ago. :E

      • ballerinawithagun

        Exactly, Jack White’s older brother.

    I just wish he’d start by washing his hair.

  • Terence Ng

    Maybe he’s been inspired by his time at the Lone Ranger set… -_-

  • KQ67

    He’s starting to look like Russell Brand’s cranky older brother.

      Yes…and that isn’t a good thing.

  • RebeccaKW

    My biggest problem with him is his hair.  It always looks unwashed and this ‘style’ doesn’t really do anything for him.  I don’t care if he wants it long, but it’s time for something new.  I do wish the jacket fit him better, rather than as if he showed up and was told a jacket was required and someone gave him one from the closet.

  • cmb92191

    Elderly gay wind chime!  LOL!  Well to be fair, he looks better than usual?  True he overaccesorizes , true he has the same style and crazy glasses, but he is Johnny Depp.   He must be the male equivalent of Helena Bonham Carter.

    • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

      Hell no. HBC wears couture on a regular basis and knows when to tone her quirkiness down. She puts the effort in. He looks like he’s making a trip to the hardware store.

      • Anathema_Device

        I am now PRAYING to see a guy dressed like this at the hardware store this weekend. All I see are ex-jock suburban dads in old cargo shorts, A’s or Giants shirts, and baseball caps! :-)

        • http://twitter.com/TheRedZavodnik Ginger

          Ugh…don’t remind me.  They drape themselves in athletic apparel yet they haven’t used a pair of running shoes for their intended purpose since high school and the wicking material of their shirts strains over their beer bellies.  I’m sorry…did I just go off on a tangent there?

          • Anathema_Device

            Ours don’t bother with the running shoes. I accidentally omitted “filthy, worn-out flip flops” from my description. Oh, but if any one of them resembled Johnny Depp, all would be forgiven.

        • cmb92191

          I spend my weekends at the hardware store (admittedly Home Depot) and I see paint splattered clothes, Tshirts, cargo shorts and many many people who wear clothes that are too small for them.   

          • formerlyAnon

            Yeah, intentionally oversized clothes and necklaces (ETA: even on women) don’t appear at my hardware store. However, it might be the fault of my sadly pedestrian neighborhood. Perhaps celebrities – or TLo’s – environs are more glamorous. (Actually, if their hardware stores are as downmarket as mine, I don’t want to know. Kinda like Lana Turner being discovered at the soda fountain, there are some illusions I prefer to maintain a suspension of disbelief about.)

  • http://profiles.google.com/denise.alden Denise Alden

    Elderly gay rancher with dirty hair, maybe.  You’re right about the pretentiousness, though:  it, and he, are getting old.

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    I would dig it if that jacket actually fit him.

    • ballerinawithagun

      I agree. Love the style if it fit. He should invest in some vintage Nudies.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        Yeah, he should. Hell he an afford to have every item of clothing he wears custom made if he wants. No excuse for bad fit.

        • formerlyAnon

           There still may be no excuse – but I can’t believe it’s unintentional. His ensembles may sometimes be inexplicable, but I think they’re mostly on purpose.

          Some of his clothes fit perfectly (though they are often semi-obscured by the schmatta). Until I got older and thickened a bit in the middle & felt like I needed to start working every angle I could just to stay presentable in public, I chose a lot of my non-work clothes to be oversized because I liked them that way.

  • alyce1213

    I’m all for unconventional, but he’s just looking stupid and pretentious.
    Ans that from someone who loves him.

    T-Lo is right – Johhny, put on a nice suit, groom yourself, and be happy about all the money people are throwing at you.

  • http://twitter.com/awtchy1 Ashley

    I just spat out my grapefruit at the comment “he must sound like a wind chime when he walks” … thank you for that :)!

    Well… I see a little Keith Richards there… a little 50′s country/western… pretty much the same as always, really. And his agelessness astounds me. Does he sleep in a stasis chamber? Or does he have a painting in his attic?

    • http://twitter.com/crush_onyou crush on you

      Paintings. I sustain there are several of those. Helen Mirren has one for sure.

      What bothers me is the shoes.

      • ccinnc

        I was waiting for someone to mention the shoes. WTF???

      • Beardslee

        me too!  though the rest of it also has a grimy quality to it that skeeves me out.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Elderly gay rancher in New Mexico? Because that’s really all we can see when we look at him.

    Haha. Only thing is I think E.G.R. in N.M.’s jacket would be a bit snug.  I’ll give him this much: at least he wants to try different looks. But now that he’s tried this one, he can move on to something else.

    Also, Johnny, dear: the hair (both head and facial). Do something about it, and soon. Please. 

    • snarkykitten

       different looks? since when? his outfits go: ratty boots, jeans, ratty shirt, piled on scarf/necklace/kitchen sink, jacket, greasy hair, douche sunglasses. I’m not seeing anything different O_o

      • BrooklynBomber

        Different than other people.

  • crash1212

    It’s not often that I totally disagree with T & Lo, but what better time than now? I hope Johnny Depp continues dressing like Johnny Depp until he’s old and gray. Nobody lets their freak flag fly better than he does and I think he looks fab. Let Depp be Depp.

    Although, I do agree that he probably sounds like a wind chime when he walks, but I’ve always liked a good wind chime.

    • JackieOBlue

      He can ring my chimes anytime.

  • http://www.facebook.com/WendyLKaufman Wendy Kaufman

    WTF? Is he wearing his father’s jacket? It’s too big. The sleeves are too long. I can get behind quirky, but it at least ought to fit.

  • Judy_J

    I wish he’d had that jacket tailored to fit.  It’s really the only thing that bothers me about this outfit.

  • http://www.facebook.com/WendyLKaufman Wendy Kaufman

    OMG, and his shoes. WTF? are they really as beat up as they look, or are they “distressed”. Johnny, been a fan since 21 Jump Street, but soon you will be falling unto the “not aging well” category if you can’t dress yourself and wash. 

    • formerlyAnon

       He’s worn boots – often ratty ones – since before the current trend for pre-distressed ones. So it could go either way.

  • nannypoo

    I’ve never understood any of his personas. I wish he would just relax. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/W7A5N4G7FDTV5U2KOHBVSB55XI Basket

    I’m not mad at him. 

    I will have to go see Dark Shadows doing the day and make sure no one catches me there. 

    • formerlyAnon

       I have to see it during the day, if I see it in a theater at all, because it looks so awful that there’s no way I’m paying full price.  But I am compelled to see it. Even if I wait for Netflix.

  • Anathema_Device

    That jacket is huge on him! I just put him in the HBC category, although she usually looks beautiful.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UCLO5V2YD36T7QMPKOC7YXPOFU Erica

    Maybe he’s trying REALLY hard to downplay his good looks?  It’s working for me.  Although, what makes my eye twitch are the scuffed shoes (would it take so much to slap some black shoe polish on those puppies?)  I guess it’s because I come from a background and place where scuffed shoes are considered tacky and low rent, not a purposeful statement.

  • Anastasia_B

    I truly love him and his work, and think he’s one of the finest and most interesting actors there is. But, he tries so hard to appear that he’s not trying hard, and it no longer seems genuine.

    • formerlyAnon

       Yes. I think his look started as a way to look artfully disheveled and it took on a life of its own.

  • cheesebomb

    He looks like Jack White and a singing cowboy had a baby that never ages.

    • pepper76

       I totally thought of Jack White, too. And it looks big on him, so maybe he borrowed it from Jack?

    Did you see him on Ellen?  He’s so cute when he smiles, but I’ve never seen someone look just quite so generally uncomfortable.

  • betty language

    wait, when helena bonham carter dresses quirky (and has forever), it’s awesome…but when depp does, it’s not?  i’d be mortified to see him in a well tailored suit….there are enough men in this world walking around in a well tailored suit.  thank god he’s weird and wears what he wants.  why the push to make him into something he’s not?

    • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

      HBC dresses UP, wearing some of the most celebrated designers, like Westwood and Marc Jacobs. And while she dresses quirky as hell most of the time, she tones it down considerably depending on the event and sometimes wears quite traditional gowns and cocktail dresses. Depp has been dressing this way – and EXACTLY this way – for 15 years now. And he’s almost always underdressed for the occasion.

      • formerlyAnon

         As much as I love him, & as overly-indulgent as I am of his sartorial ways, you are absolutely right.

  • snarkykitten

    If maybe he quit that horrendous brit accent of his, maybe we’d see some change.

  • RzYoung

    Plus it all looks 2 sizes too large for him

  • histrogeek

    I’m used to his Jack Sparrow sense of neckwear, but what is that thing he’s substituted for a jacket? Would it kill ya to get one in your own size (not that I forgive the style, but seriously)?

  • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.j.donovan Samuel Joesph Donovan

    Agreed the cuteness has worn off this look. Even RDJ will occasionally try to dress regular. On a positive note, at least Johnny looks as if he bathed this time.

  • Candigirl1968

    I don’t understand why he likes his jackets two sizes too big. Is he planning a middle aged growth spurt?

    I love the jacket…. just not here on him.  In the first place, it’s way too big.  In the second place, it’s not really appropriate for red carpet.  For a night on the town or on the ranch, perhaps.

  • missmaggiethecat69

    He wears things he truly loves rather then having a stylist turn him into a walking advert for the designer of the moment. That I can respect. Additionally most of what he wears is vintage, and I not only respect but *love* that.

    I’m sorry, but I really (he’s gorgeous) am incapable of noticing Johnny’s style choices. I will take your word for it that they’re awful, but (he’s gorgeous) all I see are eyes, smile and cheekbones. Good god. He’s gorgeous. Cheekbones.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      was he wearing something?

  • bluefish

    He looks unhappy — Greasy hair is never a good look.  I like the jacket.  He’s wedded to his quirks — including wearing all his costume jewelry at once all the time.  Still … he is Johnny Depp — a direct link to the craziness that was Hunter S. Thompson and the additional cray-cray of the aged Brando.  He’s already iconic so I guess he figures he can continue to do whatever he wants.

    He does wear eyeliner, etc., doesn’t he?  Not that I mind — just wondering.

    • formerlyAnon

       Eyeliner: sometimes. He wore it a lot when he was flogging the pirate movies.

      • bluefish

        Of course!  Stupid old me — I’d forgotten all about that.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      why not?  his face is gorgeous, and those eyes…..sigh.

  • Belvane

     I kind of love all the beads and doo-dads, but he must have borrowed that jacket from David Bryne, circa 1984.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/W7A5N4G7FDTV5U2KOHBVSB55XI Basket

       The beads look like some kid he knows made them for him and he promised to wear them.

        that could be.  i wore a lot of strange shit when my daughter was in preschool.  how old are his kids anyway?
        just remember, wearing strange things hanging off you is a long and venerable hippy tradition.

        • formerlyAnon

           Ages: roughly 13 and 10. In my defense, I learned this when I was looking to see how he dressed when in public with the fam (rare as that is), not stalking data on the young ones.

  • Susan Crawford

    In my book, Johnny Depp can do no wrong, so I approach this post with my usual mixture of adoration and awe. But even I have to admit that the Chet Atkins jacket could be a couple sizes smaller, and tailored to fit. But if he showed up chez moi wearing this outfit, you’d better believe I’d invite him in to hang out, drink some wine, and trade stories . . . among other things.

  • hellomissmadeline

    Somehow I feel if he was a woman wearing quirky gear we’d let him get away with it I mean isn’t he basically just doing his own thing a la Helena Bonham Carter?

    • Laura Valentine

      That’s just how I feel.  Johnny has his look, it’s all his own, and he clearly couldn’t give a toss what anyone thinks of it. Good for him.

      This outfit in particular I think is a particularly cool and good-looking version of his look.  Also, I’m pretty sure he has a portrait stashed away somewhere because he looks DAMN young for his actual age.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Austen-Jane/100002245814326 Austen Jane

    I would be nice to see him all cleaned up and in a well fitted tux.

  • yulaffin

    Greasy hair – yuck!

  • Lina_bee

    YES!

  • Laylalola

    For some reason he always looks to me like he’d rather be wearing a grungy sweater over an untucked shirt and Levis and showing off his hacky sack skills at these events, and he’d probably look less ridiculous if he did. 

  • guest2visits

    Laughing, no snorting..SOL. *sigh*  thankyou TLO.    Johnny must have thought this was the premiere for Rango.
    He’s got some interesting little bits and pieces there; probably shouldn’t be wearing them all at once though.
    And he’s actually looking healthy again under all that scruff.

    Hey…its no more played then HBC drag but you guys always give her a pass. 

  • aristida_girl


    Johnny, please stop being an elderly gay wind chime. Just for a little while.” OMG! you guys are killing me today, lovin it! also, i like johnny for his willful strangeness, i think he likes being a non-conformist….

  • DCSheehan

    I love quirky male outfits, if they fit right and suit the personality. This clearly misses on both counts. And that is douchebag hair.

    The stupid glasses and the stringy hair too. 

    LOL on the “Johnny, please stop being an elderly gay wind chime. Just for a little while.”

  • phoenixash007

    I don’t get why this outfit looks pretentious and ridiculous on Johnny Depp when I see it as exactly the same as Helena Bonham Carter’s crazy fashion.  They’re both strange and unique, and I have respect for both of them.

      HBC wears couture.

    He may in fact be a windchime, but I could listen to him all day long. Love him. 

  • quiltrx

    I kind of WANT him to sound like a windchime…just not an elderly gay one.

    All I would change is to make that hair freshly-washed, and to take the jacket down several sizes.  Don’t ever change, you beautiful Dorian Gray thing!

    Johnny Cash Goes to the Himalayas.

  • littlemissstrange

    I will be the last to deny his sexiness, but seriously dude, DRESS UP for a fucking premiere for once. You don’t even have to do MODERN formal wear, you can wear a waistcoat and a pocketwatch and a top hat and all that shit if you want, but dress FORMALLY for a FORMAL event. Otherwise it just seems like you want people to believe you’re just an ordinary guy who isn’t rolling in money and that’s just insulting our intelligence.

  • Kappyapp

    Elderly Gay Windchimes would be the best band name EVER

  • fashionzombie

    I think he should fall under the same ruling as Helena Bonham Carter: crazy weirdo dresses for self only, doesn’t care what you think.

  • Lilyana_F

    Yeah, I kinda want to see him with a haircut and in a well-tailored suitfor a change. Such a gorgeous man, it’s a shame he’s set on fighting the hotness.

  • lesmaha

    just–sad.

  • http://twitter.com/ennisamy Amy Ennis

    I think he thought he was showing up for the Lone Ranger premier. He looks like he’s channeling Rango. If he shows up at Lone Ranger wearing the waistcoat and top hat, I will giggle forever. 

  • TaurusKW

    The thought occurred to me that you guys are being a bit sexist in your criticism of Johnny.  Long ago, you ceased to criticize Helena Bonham Carter for her fashion choices, saying that she doesn’t play by the rules, so there’s no point in holding her to them.  I think it’s clear that Johnny has made the same choice, yet you continue to try and hold him to the fashion rules.  Why do you do that?

    • http://www.facebook.com/nkensing Nico Kensing

      Because some expect him to just “look pretty” with the same  dapper suits that Clooney and EVERY MAN wears and just simply “fit in” but because he doesn’t then something’s wrong with him “oh NOES”.  As I said before, fools….. don’t know why blogs like this exists lol, hell anyone can do snark dressed up as concern for fashion.

       Please scroll through the comments and find the dozen or so other times we responded to this point. The upshot is:

      1) We haven’t “ceased” criticizing her, and
      2) She dresses in couture and changes up her look to be more “normal” all the time.

  • Puckndc

    The one pic where he’s smiling (?!)…looks painful…he just looks cray-cray anymore

  • MichaelStrangeways

    He’s pushing 50 and the rockstar clown look BARELY works on Steven Tyler who’s actually a rockstar/clown.

    Also, did he suck a lemon before hitting the RC?

  • http://www.facebook.com/nkensing Nico Kensing

    Safe to say you, the writer and a few others like Denise and alcy are bordeline mixing hating with pure ignorance and stupidity, “pretentious” how about it’s way he lokes to dress, last time I checked folks can still do that, some fools rush in don’t they, as judging by the “likes” some fo the comments had no business receiving but did your those two. Don’t care if the comment gets unliked or removed but it will prove my point about choice.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003030114804 Kendra Austin

    You’re over him or his look but nevertheless take time to criticize him and his “look” okay, could it be what you wrote that’s pretentious, just saying

    not every comment is supposed to agree with you and kiss your toosh

    Does Katie Lang know he stole her favourite cowboy outfit?

  • HobbitGirl

    He and Steven Tyler continue to look increasingly like my 88-year-old grandmamma.

    You guys seriously made my day with the gay windchime comment. I love you!

  • Scoobydrew

    I have loved Johnny Depp for most of my life, but sometimes he makes it so hard.
