Johnny Depp's unique acting style has earned him a large fanbase, but not all of his fans are on board with his appearance and fashion choices. Last year, at the Cannes Film Festival, Depp's rotten teeth became a hot topic of discussion. While critics on social media slammed the Pirates of the Caribbean actor for his poor dental hygiene, an old interview resurfaced where Depp proudly spoke about his teeth.
Interestingly, Depp incorporated his rotten teeth into his portrayal of Pirate Captain Jack Sparrow and even had gold caps placed on his teeth for the first three films. However, some argue that it's about time for the actor to make a trip to the dentist.
When Depp walked the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival to promote his film, Jeanne Du Barry, he garnered attention for his dental issues. With ongoing legal troubles with his ex-wife Amber Heard making headlines, this time fans and haters alike took to social media to discuss Depp's teeth. Some fans expressed concern, stating that the Alice in Wonderland actor needed immediate dental care. On the other hand, some defended Depp.
Amidst the discussions, various media outlets brought up an interview Depp gave to Premiere Magazine in 1995, where he openly talked about his dental problems. He admitted to having many cavities and even revealed that his root canal from eight years ago was still unfinished. Nevertheless, Depp embraced the imperfection of his teeth and expressed distaste for the fake perfect teeth that some people have. He told Premiere Magazine, “When I see people with perfect teeth, it drives me up the wall. I'd rather swallow a tick than have that!”
