Professional elderly gay wind chime gives these kids with their “reality TV” nonsense the what-for. Then he sucks in his cheeks and takes us all to 1995 once again.
Johnny Depp covers the May 2014 issue of Interview magazine photographed by Bruce Weber and styled by Karl Templer.
On reality TV: “People get famous now for I-don’t-know-what. People have reality shows because they’re a Hollywood socialite, and these things become very successful and they generate a shitload of money for the company. And it’s multiplying, to where you’re literally looking into your next door neighbor’s bathroom with reckless abandon. It is like watching a fire. You can’t take your eyes off of it.”
On getting dressed: “I love the idea of changing my look. I think one owes it to the audience, to go out there and give them something different each time, so as not to bore them to death. And I always felt that if you’re not trying something different each time out of the gate, you’re being safe, and you don’t ever want to find that place of safety. I like that, each time, before I even go in front of the cameras, the studio’s reaction will be fear.”
Is he kidding us with that? He’s barely changed his look in 20 years. And his rant about reality TV sounds like he just traveled here from the year 2002.

And these pictures literally could have been taken at any point in the past 20 years. You’d just need to (ever so slightly) age him digitally to make him 2014 appropriate. And probably remove Winona Ryder from the background. Also: you get a puppy OR a teddy bear for your editorial. Both at the same time are twee as fuck.
