Angie looks stu-nning. I’m loving the black velvet (if you please) Versace she’s been slinking around in for her European red carpet appearances for The Tourist. For me, this gown, with the nude, crystal-encrusted top-half and dramatic black skirt is what dreams are made of. Sexy elegance at its BEST. I stand by my love of the sleeve/glove Versace dress Angelina wore earlier this week, but this one beats it…by a crystal.
Seriously? Who else would do this kind of thing? I dare you to come up with names, y’all. Okay, Brad and Angie, maybe, but still doubtful. Reese Witherspoon? George Clooney? Harvey Keitel? Edward Norton? Russell Crowe? Sean Penn? (Ugh, like those last four would be on anyone’s list of dudes they even wanna meet.) I’m positive that if Tom Cruise showed up at an elementary school, there would be tears, alarm bells and lots of hiding under desks.
So, yeah. Johnny Depp received a cute little letter written by “Beatrice Delap, aged nine, a budding pirate” and actually made a special appearance to meet her at school.
“[Johnny Depp] is currently in south-east London filming the fourth Pirates Of The Caribbean movie On Stranger Tides and arrived at the Meridian Primary School dressed in full character as Captain Jack Sparrow.
He made the one-off trip after nine-year-old pupil Beatrice Delap wrote to the star asking for help staging a ‘mutiny’ against the teachers, as he was filming at the nearby 18th century Old Naval College.
The school was told just ten minutes before that Depp would be arriving and two blacked-out cars swept through the school gates.
An onlooker said she heard the most ‘incredible screams of joy’ as the actor, in full make-up, then entered the school.
She [Beatrice] said that she was then asked by the star to make herself known from the assembled pupils once he arrived, and gave her a cuddle.
Beatrice marvelled: ‘He gave me a hug and he said, “Maybe we shouldn’t mutiny today ‘cos there are police outside monitoring me.”‘
Police have been a constant presence as filming has progressed at the old college, parts of which have been transformed to look like Georgian London.”
ForpitySAKE. I’m pretty sure Johnny Depp can do no wrong…except maybe for making The Tourist with Angelina Jolie, but you didn’t hear that from me.
