Jack Sparrow vs. Edward Scissorhands: Which Was Johnny Depp’s Best Role?



With Johnny Depp’s 59th birthday approaching, what better way to honor the erstwhile youth icon than to pick his best role? Since the 1980s, Johnny has played a bunch of interesting characters, but his most famous performances are undoubtedly the title character in “Edward Scissorhands” and Captain Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean.” The actor is well-known for both parts, but let’s see which one is, by a razor-thin margin, superior to the other:

1. Jack Sparrow: He is the most original, inventive character of all time.

Pirate of the Caribbean’s Captain Jack Sparrow is what Johnny Depp’s talent has made him. Johnny’s insistence not to walk the beaten path has resulted in him being among the most unique, clever, pleasantly unusual, surprising, and hilarious characters in film history. He’s utterly self-serving, yet in a hurry, he comes through gloriously. Captain Jack may act as though he doesn’t care about anything else except himself, but when it boils down to it, he does have a good soul.

2. Edward Scissorhands: He speaks little, but expresses so much.

One of the things that makes Depp’s Edward so striking is how little he speaks all through the film. Edward is shown to communicate through his artwork, mannerisms, and scissors, except for a few sentences. When he is at peace, he creates, when he is unhappy, he ruins by accident, and when he is mad, he destroys intentionally. His mask-like face expresses minimal emotion, yet the shifts are enough to insinuate what he is thinking at the moment. To convey feelings in such a forceful and unique way is iconic in itself.

3. Jack Sparrow: He has undeniably interesting good looks.

4. Edward Scissorhands: He’s a monster people sympathize with.

Many individuals find it easy to empathize with the monsters they see on television. Edward most clearly fits into this stereotype as a misinterpreted man-made Frankenstein monster. However, while other popular villain protagonists have some companions, Edward is left alone. It all comes full circle, bringing him back to where he was at the beginning of the film, but this time he is at peace.

5. Jack Sparrow: He is the most underrated, brave genius in movie history.

Most people are unaware of how intelligent of a character Jack Sparrow is. They have no idea how courageous and clever the daring pirate is. People think of Jack Sparrow as a freewheeling eccentric who gets extraordinarily lucky all the time, yet this is far from the truth. All that he does, everything he achieves, is flawlessly executed throughout. He is not just wiser than he appears, but he is also very brave. His heroism and capacity to face his phobias are the results of his strengths, not of his recklessness or eagerness to die.


‘Wednesday’ star Catherine Zeta-Jones is all praise for Netflix series and ‘marvellous’ co-star Jenna Ortega




Catherine Zeta Jones was all praise for Netflix's hit series Wednesday,and co-star Jenna Ortega, in a recent interview.

On Wednesday, January 25, Catherine Zeta Jones, who plays Morticia Addams, spoke to Ross King in a chat show on Lorraine about the Wednesday series being renewed for a second season.

According to Daily Mail, the actress was alongside her husband Michael Douglas at a Burns night celebration.

She told the reporter, “When Tim Burton asked me to do it, I was like ‘whatever you want me to do Tim!’ and then the idea of me playing Morticia, who’s such an iconic, wonderful, juicy character was wonderful.”

Speaking about the show, she said, “It turned out so much better than I think anybody anticipated.”

Catherine also praised her co-star, “Jenny Ortega is just marvellous as Wednesday and through the eyes of Tim Burton it’s a lot of fun.”

The 53-year-old Hollywood star continued, “I’m really happy to be part of it I must say.”

Catherine’s screen icon husband Michael, 78, was certainly a fan of his wife’s work as he chimed in, “She killed Morticia, she really killed it!”

Nia Long Says ‘Fresh Prince’ Costar Will Smith ‘Carried a Burden for Many Years to Represent’ Perfection





Nia Long is proud of how far Will Smithhas come.

In speaking of her former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air costar, Long, 52, applauded Smith, 54, for how he’s handled himself in the spotlight.

“I will always love him. He’s had an incredible career, and he’s carried a burden for many years to try — to represent what perfection looks like,” Long, who played Smith’s character’s girlfriend and fiancée Beulah “Lisa” Wilkes on the series, said in an interview with Yahoo’s Kevin Polowy. “Or what achievement looks like.”

Long also reflected on her generation’s idea of “celebrity” — and how Smith fit into that box. “I don’t think that — at least when we were growing up — there was room to be human. I think he’s now able to be human,” she added.

Last year, Smith went viral after slappingChris Rock on stage at the Oscars. The unscripted moment came after Rock, 57, mocked Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved hairstyle, which was done to her alopecia.

Smith, in turn, faced a great deal of backlash before he eventually apologized for his behavior.

Though Long did not directly mention Smith’s outburst, she equated life in the spotlight to that of strict routine, which sometimes does not allow authenticity.


“We all have our moments in life where we need to reconcile things that we suppress,” she said. “And I think — it’s hard growing up in this business and being front and center every day, all day.”

Of her own career, and backseat spotlight, she added. “Think about it — I can go to the grocery store anytime I want to, and for the most part, people are like ‘Hey, Nia Long.’ No one’s chasing me down the street. I still have my anonymity, and I appreciate that about my career.”

During the conversation, Long also got emotional discussing the difficulties she’s faced in recent months. Long went through a very public breakup last year with her fiancé, former Boston Celtics Coach Ime Udoka, after 13 years together. He had been caught having an affair with a female subordinate within the Celtics organization.

“I’ve had some pretty devastating moments in my life over the last couple of months, and I’ve had to just say ‘It’s alright. You’ll pick yourself back up’ — oh, my God I’m about to cry,” Long added. “You pick yourself back up, and you keep it moving.”

Did Amber Heard Made Johnny Depp Go Through Worst During His Lowest Points? ( Photo Credit – Instagram ; Movie Still )

Amber Heard very well planned steps in divorce against Johnny Depp to take him down during his lowest phases? Read details now!

Amber Heard has been declared guilty of defaming Johnny Depp during the latest Virginia trial. She was ordered to pay a compensation of $10.35 million which was later settled for only $1 million. But did you know, the Aquaman star strategically took steps during divorce? Well, the details of it will leave you shell-shocked.

A lot had been said and done during the one-year span that Johnny and Amber remained married. There were accusations of cheating with Elon Musk, a threesome with Cara Delevingne and so much more! On the other hand, the Justice League actress accused him of domestic violence, and verbal abuse amongst other claims.

A report by Animated Times now reveals details that are truly giving us goosebumps. It looks like Amber Heard strategically planned to leave Johnny Deppdestructed. She allegedly filed for divorce citing their official separation day as 17th April 2016. Betty Sue Palmer, JD’s mom, passed away just 2 days prior to that and the actor was facing his worst possible phase.

On the other hand, Amber heard filed for a restraining order against Johnny Depp on 27th May 2016. That was again the day Johnny Depp was ideally supposed to celebrate the birthday of his daughter Lily-Rose Depp. But unfortunately, his ex-wife stole the thunder.

One refuses to believe that all of this is mere coincidence!

Meanwhile, Johnny Depp denied all the allegations made against him by Amber Heard and termed them “heinous.”

He reacted to them in court and said, “It’s insane to hear heinous accusations of violence, s*xual violence, that she’s attributed to me, that she’s accused me of. I don’t think anyone enjoys having to split themselves open and tell the truth, but there are times when one simply has to because it’s gotten out of control. Horrible. Ridiculous. Humiliating. Ludicrous. Painful. Savage. Unimaginably brutal. Cruel and all false.”
