There are many actors who are known to have gone to great lengths for a role in the movie. We have seen some insane body transformations and also some great works of make-up. If there is one actor who is known to have put on a lot of faces in his career, it is Johnny Depp. These transformations can be credited to his collaborations with Tim Burton who is known for his dark, fantasy films and expects his actors to dress up for it accordingly. The many faces are also because Johnny Depp believes that the last thing he wants to do is look like himself. We know for a fact that he achieves this superbly and here are five looks where he was unrecognizable.
Edward Scissorhands (1990)
Riding on the success of 21 Jump Street, Johnny Depp got a role in this movie. At that time he got an opportunity to explore a new genre and it was also the first time we saw him in an unrecognizable look.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory remains a childhood classic which every child might watch during Christmas. Tim Burton gave it his own dark twist and we got Chalie and the Chocolate Factory. Essaying the role of Willy Wonka was none other than Johnny Depp who looked surprisingly very different in his clown-like get up. It is a credit to the star that he exuded sophistication in a get up like that.
The Libertine (2006)
Showing off his long tresses we see Johnny Depp in this 17th-century drama. This movie came a year after we saw him as Willy Wonka and it was a pleasure to seem him sans heavy facial makeup and in a way that made him unrecognizable.
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)
Another Tim Burton venture where Johnny Depp plays the titular character who is known for his skills with a blade (no, we are not talking about Scissorhands here). Based on the musical of the same name, Depp's look in this movie is certainly meant to send chills down your spine and it does that.
Pirates of the Carribean (2003 – Present)
When it talks about iconic looks who can forget his portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow. The cosplayers all over the world have tried to emulate him and even a lot of movies have referenced to that look. Johnny Depp also accepts the look as his own and you can find him sometimes visiting children wards of hospitals dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow.
