We all know that handling fame with composure isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Sometimes fame could get to one’s head resulting in a spurt in their ego. However, when we talk about Johnny Depp, the word “ego” simply does not seem to be a part of his dictionary. Supporting this statement, Johnny Depp’s ex-co-star, Paulina Porizkova, talked about the time on the set when the actor pleasantly surprised her and simply became a joy to be around and work with!

Paulina Porizkova and Johnny Depp worked together on the 1993 independent film titled Arizona Dream. Directed by Emir Kusturica, the film revolved around Alex Blackmar played by Depp. Appearing on the November 22, 2022, episode of the Dedicated with Doug Brunt podcast, Porizkova recalled how Depp didn’t let his superstar status affect how he acted on the set. Porizkova stated that since the movie had a star-studded ensemble, there were a lot of big egos on the set. However, she made sure to clarify that Depp wasn’t a part of that group as he was super kind to the people around him.

“It was a star-studded cast, so a lot of egos on the set, and Johnny, who was the world’s biggest heartthrob at that time, didn’t act like one. He was really kind to the electricians and to the crew.”

Porizkova continued that Depp being kind to everyone around him inspired her to try and become more like the actor as she took notes about Depp’s kindness on set. She added that he created a calm space of gentleness around him.

“Johnny was so nice, he was so kind to the people around him that he sort of became everyone’s friend. He was genuinely kind to everyone on set, and I really took note of that. Where he went, he created a little calm space around him of gentleness, kindness. People really responded to that. I was like, ‘I want to be like that.’”

While his kindness was very inspiring to Porizkova, she mentioned another reason why she thinks so highly of the Pirates of the Caribbean actor. She stated that while Depp could be doing huge movies in Hollywood, he decided to put his time and effort into a “weird little independent film.” Depp has Porizkova’s respect for that.

Johnny Depp’s Act of Kindness

The sets of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides were hit with British winter, making it extremely difficult for the crew to work under such harsh weather conditions. Enter Depp. Depp went out of his way to spend tens of thousands of dollars out of his own pocket to buy waterproof winter jackets for the crew of the film. Talking to The Sun, a fellow crew member praised Depp for the generous gesture.

“Johnny paid out of his own pocket for all 500 of us to have nice warm waterproof [jackets]. It’s a great morale boost and another example of why he is one of the nicest people in Hollywood.”

We couldn’t agree more. 500 winter jackets don’t come cheap. While the money might not have been a problem for one of the biggest actors of today, his selfless action certainly got him some brownie points with the crew. Fans, too, praise Depp for his generosity, let alone the crew. He sure has a reputation in the industry and he is living up to it!
