Depp Celebrates His 'Weird' Persona

Actor JOHNNY DEPP is bemused he is seen as "weird", insisting everyone is strange but usually too afraid to embrace their eccentricities. As well as his quirky interpretation of CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW in the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN movies, Depp has appeared in a string of odd movie roles. But he believes idiosyncrasies should be celebrated, not hidden or ridiculed. The 43-year-old says, "I was given the 'weird' badge but I think everybody's weird and that's the key to it. We should celebrate our individuality, not be embarrassed or ashamed by it. "We all have idiosyncrasies, tics that are obsessive-compulsive. People do themselves a great disservice by not allowing themselves to see who they really are because they are afraid."

I wish more people thought like Johnny. My daughter who has strange and 'weird'ideas and idiosyncrasies; was label mad by some of the children in her Primary School. It was her real friends in High School who took her for what she is and now she has a wonderful group of guys and girls who think shes great.I just wonder if Johnny's 'weirdness' and idiosyncrasies only come out when he is playing a part in a film; or is he just as 'weird' in his everyday life????????? If so good for him.

So what does it matter celebrates his weird persona. It what is inside a person.Some people look on the outside and said he or she weird, but never do they look on the inside.
