Johnny Depp Is No Saint, And Amber Heard Is A Narcissist.

Narcissists become victims when they no longer have control over their prey.

I remember when I became a fan girl of Jack Sparrow. After the release of the sequel, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. I began to realize that Captain Jack Sparrow was just like any ordinary man. A tortured soul. I mean, aren't we all? He wasn't just a rum-drinking pirate who tricked people and ran at the first sign of trouble.

He wasn’t disloyal and heartless. He was a pirate; in a world where to survive, you have to be well-rounded. A captain to a crew of loyal men, and a stealthy and intelligent criminal who knows when to be ruthless and when to escape to fight another day.

You see the following sequel, At Worlds End, proved that even though Jack was a son-of-bitch, he was loved and admired, and he had loyal friends who would go to the world's end to bring him back. He was the captain of the Black Pearl and he had witts about him that the ocean dwellers knew were character traits of a noble and courageous man, by a pirate's standards. Go ask Calypso, goddess of the ocean.

(That's my nickname by the way. I got it when I lived in Canada some years ago. )

I observed many details about Sparrow and why he was the way he was. In the same way, I learn things about Johnny based on all his characters and the role they played? Though all his roles were entirely different, I could tell he loved his job. He did it exceptionally well. He was one of the best at what he did. Every movie he filmed was a record-breaker. And that was all him. No one else can take credit for that.

He didn't create the character named Willy Wonka, but he gave life to it, and all the others. Willy Wonka used his pain to bring children joy. He lived in a world where he only trusted the Oompa Loompas. He tested the children's nobility and chose a winner based solely on their pure innocence. The marker of the inner child.

It wasn't until after I was mature enough to process certain details with a gradually developing emotional intelligence, that I actually noticed and remember that Johnny was also Edward Scissorhands. I love Edward Scissorhands. He was so innocent and so pure…
