Johnny Depp - Gq Awards Guest Johnny Depp Watches Ceremony On Tv

Johnny Depp snubbed other guests as he sat in a private room to watch the GQ Men of the Year awards on a TV screen.

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor requested an "expensive leather chair" to sit in and asked for "expensive, vintage red wine" to drink as he watched the ceremony unfold at the Royal Opera House in London's Covent Garden on Tuesday night (06.09.11).

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Johnny likes his privacy and wanted to watch the ceremony in peace. He had all his home comforts surrounding him and just sat back and took it all in.

"The organisers weren't fussed by his demands. As far as they were concerned, Johnny would have got anything he asked for."

The 48-year-old star did make an appearance in front of the other guests - who included Charlize Theron, Emma Watson and Kylie Minogue - to present Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, whose audio book 'Life' he voiced, with the Writer of the Year prize.

While receiving the gong, Keith revealed his autobiography is set to be turned into a movie and he admitted the biggest problem facing filmmakers could be finding a suitable actor to portray him.

He said: "There are feelers out at the minute [but] I'm in no rush right at the moment. Also, how are they going to find me? The idea of a succession of Keith Richards coming down is horrifying."

Johnny famously based his 'Pirates of the Caribbean' character Captain Jack Sparrow on the legendary rocker and has previously indicated he would be interested in portraying him on the big screen.
