While several attempts were made to tarnish Depp’s image with consequences, the actor has risen back doubtlessly with just as much grace. Depp has been a recipient of several accolades, including a Golden Globe Award. While Depp was well-known for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean, the actor’s versatility is known worldwide.

Being one of the highest-paid actors, it would not be a surprise that Johnny Depp was paid $50 million for his small role in Alice in Wonderland.

However, it was not in vain, with the presence of Johnny Depp bringing much talent to his role. It is a well-known fact that Johnny Depp’s versatility is remarkable, and that can be seen in the way he handles the role.

Actor Sacha Baron Cohen even remarked that he feels Johnny Depp is the only actor who could bring Mad Hatter to life.

“There are not many people who could pull off the character of the Hatter that is that extreme, over the top and flamboyant, so Johnny is probably the only person that can pull that off and make it still believable and not absurd. That’s his brilliance, really,” Cohen said in a statement.

In a similar instance, Johnny Depp was paid his entire salary of $16 million for just a one-shot scene in Fantastic Beasts: Secrets Of Dumbledore despite being replaced in the movie.

In 2012, Depp was even listed in Guinness World Records as the world’s highest-paid actor with earnings of US$75 million in a year. The actor later appeared in the first two movies of the Fantastic Beasts franchise before being taken out from the third installment.

The actor’s ups and downs in his life went on a downward slope after his divorce from Amber Heard drew negative publicity calling Depp a wife-beater. The Black Mass actor later sued his ex-wife in a defamation case which marked the end of the controversy.

The actor was however removed from a few of his projects like his role in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and the Fantastic Beasts franchise because of the controversy.

Jenna Ortega’s Biggest Regret? Wednesday Scene Fans Can’t Stop Talking About

Despite the ultimate fan love she received for the viral Wednesday dance, the actress seems to think she could have done better.

Quickly becoming one of Netflix‘s biggest hits ever, Wednesday is marching through Twitter threads, TikTok videos, and Instagram reels and garnering views and likes months after the premiere. All of this thanks to the show’s most popular scene — the Wednesday dance to The Cramps’ Goo Goo Muck at the school disco at Nevermore.

However, speaking with Entertainment Tonightat the Golden Globes ceremony, the show’s main star Jenna Ortega revealed that she isn’t fully satisfied with the final result.

“There was so much I could have done and should have done. So, the fact that anyone has shown any appreciation or even tried it themselves is unfathomable to me,” the actress said, commenting on the Wednesday dance’s viral popularity.

Ortega choreographed the dance herself, somehow managing to combine improvisation and old goth moves. Besides, she also revealed that she had to film the scene while having coronavirus — something that the actress and the production were heavily criticized for.

Still, despite Ortega’s apparent regrets, the dance scene is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Netflix’s Wednesday. This all started with a TikTok edit that popularized the dance, but with a high-pitched remix of Lady Gaga‘s Bloody Mary instead of the original soundtrack.

Now, Netflix has greenlit Wednesday for a second season — and even used Bloody Mary to promote the upcoming sequel, apparently nodding to the viral song choice. The premiere date for Wednesday season 2 is yet to be announced.
