Before he was a 3-time Oscar nominee or People's "Sexiest Man Alive," Johnny Depp was a young teen idol trying to navigate his newfound fame. Et first met Depp in 1988, just a year after he debuted his smoldering looks as Office Tom Hanson in 21 Jump Street, as screaming girls lined up to meet the star.
"It's very exciting. It's also very strange because you don't expect that kind of response," the then 24-year-old told Et. "It's very new to me."

"I'm dealing with it the best way I know how which is I try to meet as many people as I can," he said. "I try to sign as many things as I can. I dont want to hurt anybody's feelings or make them feel like I dont have time."
Johnny Depp has had a remarkable career. After debuting – and dying – in A Nightmare on Elm Street back in 1984, he was just one of the guys in the ensemble Platoon, the rockabilly heartthrob in Cry-Baby, and the star undercover cop in TV’s “21 Jump Street.” With Edward Scissorhands came his career-changing role, blossoming him to the top of the A-list where he’s remained as a bonafide movie star ever since.
This week he’s back on the big screen in Mortdecai (and surprise! Tim Burton is nowhere to be found). As moustachioed art dealer Charles Mortdecai, Depp is searching for a stolen painting that’s been linked to a stolen bank account of Nazi gold.
