Now this is the Johnny Depp we know and love.
The actor, who has ditched his long, dirty locks for a short, clean-cut 'do, channeled his younger self during Saturday's world premiere of his new film The Lone Ranger. Depp, who plays Tonto in the film, and Armie Hammer, who plays the title character, were joined on the red carpet at Anaheim's California Adventure Park by Julianne Hough, Emma Roberts, and Andy Garcia. Stilt walkers, jugglers, and Disney classic characters also lined the red carpet.
Depp's ex-fiance Vanessa Paradis was noticeably absent from the premiere. The actor separated from his partner of 14 years and the mother of his two children last year. He recently opened up to Rolling Stone about his “bumpy” split from Vanessa. "It wasn't easy on her. It wasn't easy on me. It wasn't easy on the kids," he told the mag.
Johnny said he's successfully broken his old habits of turning to alcohol to drown out his sorrows. He reportedly drank heavily after breaking his engagements with exes Kate Moss and Winona Ryder.
"In terms of the breakup, I definitely wasn't going to rely on the drink to ease things or cushion the blow or cushion the situation. 'Cause that could have been fatal. I felt it was my duty to be real clear throughout that. I had something pretty serious to focus on, really, which was making sure that my kids were gonna be cool."
