Johnny Depp is involved in a media lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard for defamation after she presented alleged evidence of domestic violence and was publicized in some media outlets in the US and the UK.
Aside from the allegations and the somewhat messy life the actor led throughout his career, no one can deny that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor started his “romance” with Hollywood through the big door. He made his acting debut in the iconic 1980s film A Nightmare on Elm Street, or known in this part of the world as A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Few know that it was thanks to Nicolas Cage that Johnny Depp received the impetus to make his career a star. They met through Lori Anne Allison, Depp’s first wife, and encouraged him not to give up and pursue his acting career.
Thus, at the age of 21, he made his film debut in the horror movie, sharing the stage with the first actor Robert Englund, who played the murderer Freddie Krueger. It was with this film that he made the leap to fame and helped him find his way in Hollywood.
But before finding fame, Depp tried his hand at several jobs, one of which was selling personalized pens over the phone. “You call people who don’t want to take your call. You put on your fake voice and try to sell them crappy pens with their names on them,” Jhonny Depp once said of the job.
