Dear Mr Johnny Depp

I saw your bloated face on the news bleating on about a "sweaty
politician"who objected to you putting the 10 million dogs and our native
wildlife under threat by smuggling your dogs into our country from the
rabies ridden USA. I hope your wife gets thrown in jail when her case
comes up in court next week

You are a just an overpaid arrogant two-bit actor who comes from a
dysfunctional country which is a threat to world peace.

I have today added my name to a petition that is being raised across
Australia to have you refused entry in future and to boycott your films.

It's time to look at life outside yourself - you need to see again, a spring plant, a bird in a tree, the ocean, the sky - these are the things that matter - I hope you understand.

Johnny Depp,
First off I would like to thank you for being and amazing inspiration to me, I honestly don't know where I would be right now without the inspiration you put off. Thanks to you I have the courage to do something great and follow my dreams. I want to be an actor just like you and I hope to meet you one day because it would be a dream come true because not only are you my inspiration but my hero too because in my darkest times watching and reading is what gets me through. You help so many people out of the kindness of your heart and that's what makes you my hero. I want to be an actor yet still have that kindness and joy to me no matter what just like you. So thank you, and I hope one day to be able to tell you this in person because honestly I don't even know if this will ever get to you. But just know even if you werent an amazing actor/musician and I found out about you, you would still be my inspiration and my hero. So thank you Johnny for everything you have done for me even though you don't know what you have done for me.

no one is perfect. . . All we can do is our best and our best at the time can be wrong or right, but at the end of the day you only have yourself. So love yourself and then others love can come to you full fold without doubt.
If you trust me I trust you.
Be a beautiful disaster.
Real people will catch you when you fall.
Be kind be honest.

My uncle was an actor-Joe Peck(Pecoraro) who passed away last September well into his 80's.He told me countless stories of how Mr.Depp took care of him,let him sleep in his office,got him into Hollywood parties,ect when he was down and out.I had lost touch with my aunt(Peck's ex wife)until recently.She told me that Mr.Depp actually tracked her down and reached out with condolences when my uncle died.If this every reaches you Johnny....thanks.

Hey Johnny Depp you pry won't respond and that's okay. My friend is a really big fan of yours and he's always been there for me when I took chemo and radiation. I just want to be there for him and return the favor. Can you please send a signed autograph to me so I can surprise him? If you could thank you very much.
