“Life's pretty good, and why wouldn't it be? I'm a pirate, after all.” Determined to take on “larger than life” roles since making his acting debut in the 1984 horror film A Nightmare on Elm Street, Johnny Depp has done that and so much more as one of the world’s biggest film stars. Initially dropping out of high school to become a rock musician, Depp’s career path took a different turn in the 1980s when his wife, makeup artist Lori Anne Allison, introduced him to Nicholas Cage who encouraged him to pursue acting. Within months, Depp was divorced and living in Hollywood when he snagged his breakout role and rose to prominence as a teen idol on the Fox series 21 Jump Street. By then, his fame took on a life of its own.Advertisements:

Over the last three decades, Depp has continued to prove his incredible versatility on the silver screen with a wide range of performances in dark fantasies like Edward Scissorhands and Sleepy Hollow to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and character dramas like Donnie Brasco and Ed Wood. Along the way, he’s earned a trio of Oscar nominations for blockbusters like Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Finding Neverland and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street in addition to holding the 2012 record as the highest paid actor with earnings of over $75 million.

With his impeccable ability to assume any character, adopt a variety of accents and his willingness to wear any costume, there’s been more and more speculation in recent years that the 53-year-old Kentucky native has turned to plastic surgery to keep him young. Some tabloids have even gone so far to suggest that Depp has had a hair transplant since his once thinning hair (or so it seemed) is now fuller than ever before. Of course, it’s nearly impossible to confirm these rumors since Depp changes hairstyles for every role he accepts, which leaves many to wonder if, sometimes, he wears a wig. Honestly, we may never know the truth!

Beyond his hair, there are plenty of rumors that Depp went under the knife after he called it quits with his wife, 30-year-old actress Amber Heard, in 2016. With divorce proceedings now in the works, Depp’s appearance seemed to change dramatically as many assumed he went under the knife as part of a rumored “divorce makeover.” By then, reports came out that Depp had Botox and other filler injections as well as a minor facelift to reverse what years of binge drinking and the stress of Hollywood had done to his appearance.

Sources close to Depp argued that the rumors were entirely false, although not everyone was convinced especially since Depp has devoted so much time in the last few years to adamantly denying the rumors. Some plastic surgeons suggest that Depp has had Botox procedures at the very least while others claim that he has had either a brow lift or a facelift as well. One thing that remains unchanged, however, is his nose, which is a rarity for a Hollywood star.

As you can imagine, fans had plenty to say in the summer of 2016 when it looked as though Depp had undergone a dramatic transformation with some saying that he “destroyed” his iconic bad-boy look. Others suggested that Depp had just “put on some weight” and that his puffier appearance was the result of “years of hard living.” In true form, Depp had little to say after spending the last three decades avoiding the media like the plague especially when it involves answering personal questions. Unless he’s promoting a movie, don’t expect much from the Alice in Wonderland star!

While it’s hard to deny that Depp has obviously had some work done—Botox, at the very least—most fans still think he looks as sexy as ever. As for how the presumed surgery has affected his career, it’s still too early to tell since he had already wrapped up Alice Through the Looking Glass and most of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales when the rumors started swirling. As it stands, he currently has no other projects in the works but we’re certain that’s soon to change.

Today, the 53-year-old seems to have more on his plate than plastic surgery rumors as his divorce from Heard is a messy one that requires much of his attention. All that and to think they’ve only been married a year! Although some argue that the controversies surrounding his divorce could hurt his acting career, it’s hard to imagine that his talent could ever be overshadowed by heartbreak in Hollywood. In the meantime, we just hope he steers clear of the plastic surgeon’s office. After all, it would be a real shame to lose those bad-boy good looks the world has come to know and love.
