He's starred in countless classic movies and is responsible for plenty of film series becoming international sensations. To this day, you can still see the effect of him movies such as Edward Scissorhands, The Pirates of the Caribbean, Sweeney Todd, Cry Baby, Benny & Joon, and so many others.
But like some other iconic men in Hollywood, Depp allegedly has a dark side that only comes out in private.
