Johnny Depp is a rebel in every sense of the word. Not content to be just a pretty face and a matinee idol heart-throb, the actor chosen challenging and quirky roles throughout the course of his long entertainment career. But his maverick manner is also reflected in his always-unique attire!
Why does Zooey Deschanel like being called an “alien?” Is Wes Craven going to help MTV Scream? And why are Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep joining forces?
Love is a battlefield, and 2012 was not immune the heart’s harsh ways. Celebrity relationships had a tough go at things this year and saw a record number of sad splits (Amy Poehler and Will Arnett), shocking divorces (Heidi Klum and Seal) and close-call almost breakups (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson). But 2012 also saw a few reconciliations (Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez), giving us hope for 2013. Browse through our gallery of the 20 biggest breakups of 2012 and tell us which split was the most devastating to watch.
They don’t call ‘em “teaser trailers” for nothing. The first preview (other than what was shown at Comic-Con) of Disney’s The Lone Ranger premiered on The Tonight Show last night, and it’s already got all sorts of critics debating the movie’s merits and flaws, despite only running for 1:37 minutes. Some are debating whether Johnny Depp’s appropriation of the 1950s TV show’s stereotypical Indian speak is racist. Some seem relieved that despite the fact that the movie is a re-teaming of Depp and his Pirates/Rango director Gore Verbinski, it’s got a serious tone reminiscent of a Christopher Nolan film. Others are calling it “an episode of Hell on Wheels with an unusually large budget.”
But you want to know our chief complaint? There are so many sexy scenes of trains, the Wild West, horses, old-timey prostitutes and rich dudes, but only the briefest of glimpses at Armie Hammer (you know, the guy whose character is the name of the movie) in a mask or grimacing and not uttering a single word. What gives, guys?
Anyway, we still think it looks cool. And we’re holding out hope that we’ll see at least one shirtless Armie pic between now and June 2013.

James Van Der Beek might be playing “James Van Der Beek” in Don’t Trust The B In Apartment 23, but he’s not, you know, playing James Van Der Beek. “It’s funny, people say, ‘He’s playing himself,’ and I think, Well, I’m playing this demented version of — I don’t know what. It has echoes of me in maybe, like, my worst day ever,” the Dawson’s Creek star laughs in his new Vulture interview. “But most of it is just completely made up with little kernels of truth: behavior I’ve seen from other actors, or some of the writers have seen.” Personally, we absolutely love when celebs play weird or awful version of themselves; it shows that they have a sense of humor about themselves. Luckily James joins a cadre of excellent celebs who have lampooned themselves on TV, such as…
Sometimes, when the weather gets hot, a bad relationship starts itching at you like a million grains of sand in your bathing suit. At least we’re assuming that’s what happens, seeing as how the summer months have been rife with celeb break-ups this year. From old married like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to the most casual of booty calls like Kris Humphries and Myla Sinanaj, at least all these painful break-ups will bear delicious new relationships in the fall. Or a few Twitter meltdowns. Either way, you will survive, celebrity dumpees!
We’re not saying that every guy who gets divorced and wears that many rings and necklaces has to be going through some kind of stereotypical mid-life crisis. But a guy who dumps his baby mama, rocks out with Marilyn Manson on stage and allegedly starts dating a beautiful blond 23 years his junior in addition to wearing that many rings and necklaces? Come on, people. Personally we’re enjoying the new, playful Johnny Depp, especially since it was announced today that he’s resurrecting Edward Scissorhands for a cut-away joke in an upcoming episode of Family Guy. Johnny’s cameo will be followed by a symphony of armpit farts and several hours of Diablo 3.
“When he was in the booth, he said that he felt like he hadn’t done that voice since he did it in front of the camera,” Family Guy executive producer Mark Hentemann told EW about the Lone Ranger actor. “He was able to snap right back into Edward Scissorhands once we pulled up a clip from the movie,” adding that “[h]e was amazing — and demonstrated extraordinary patience with all the fawning women in our office who swarmed him.” Uh huh, and did Depp roar away in a cherry red Mustang after offering them all unfettered access to his hot tub? We thought as much. Oh Johnny, you so crazy! Your glasses tried to tell us all along, but we weren’t able to hear it until now!

Ke$ha topped the list of our 20 Worst Celebrity Tattoos a few weeks back when she proudly displayed her inner lip ink reading “Suck It” on instagram. But now the dollar-signed-one might have some competition in Miley Cyrus, who was seen today showing off her new Theodore Roosevelt-inspired tattoo. We say “might,” because honestly we’re not sure how to feel about it. Body art inspired by our 26th president isn’t something we come across on a regular basis. On one hand, we guess it’s a pretty cool quote taken from a 1910 speech in which he said “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” But on the other hand…what? And furthermore, WTF? We know you’re just being Miley, but damn. Maybe she’s still feeling the patriotism from her 4th of July festivities. Head on down to the gallery below to see more celebrity tattoos that left us scratching our heads!

Ke$ha, you’ve won again. You always do. Though never with a disturbing orifice tattoo before. “New tattoo!” the singer proclaimed on Instagram, displaying both her new “Suck It!” inner lip tattoo and what appears to be a gold toof. While we need some time to wrap our heads around why and to what purpose Ke$ha would get the inside of her mouth inked (Is it a command? To whom? Is it a reminder? It’s a reminder, isn’t it?), we only needed to see the photo for a millisecond to crown her queen of the bad celebrity tattoos, joining the likes of Gucci Mane‘s ice cream cone face ink and Hayden Panettiere‘s misspelled torso tattoo.
Don’t feel bad, every other famous with an awful tattoo! We probably just don’t know about your mouth art yet. Let us know, please; it’s what Instagram is for. In the meantime, everyone else can take a gander at our worst celebrity tattoo gallery. With Ke$ha at the lead, it looks like ya’ll need to start upping your bad tattoo game…

Just a couple of days after Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis officially announced their split, all sorts of rumors are surfacing about the couple of 14 years. The Daily Mail reports that the 49-year-old Depp has been seen in a number of different places with his 26-year-old Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard. There were sightings of the two boarding a private plane in Las Vegas, where he was promoting Dark Shadows last month. Then again, Heard supposedly brought along her girlfriend, Tasya Van Ree, on that trip. But now some are reporting that Heard has been visiting him on the set of The Lone Ranger in New Mexico. Maybe she just really likes vacationing in the Southwest?
Meanwhile, The Sun is reporting that Depp will be giving Paradis, whom he never married, $156 million “to keep the split amicable.” They have two children, Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack, 10, who go to school in Los Angeles. According to People, Vanessa and Johnny had been living separate lives for a while, despite the fact that they’ve been fending off rumors of their split for months.
