"People like Johnny Depp are an exception. He is the current model of what an actor should be. His body of work speaks volumes. He was so under-rated for so long, but he will have longevity — and it is such a gratifying thrill to see he is finally getting the recognition he deserves”" Dustin Hoffman
"He’s an extraordinary painter, he’s a great musician, he’s a great actor - he’s a renaissance man in the greatest way… [And] he is one of the most real people you will ever meet"
"As far as i’m concerned Johnny Depp is the best actor of his generation. I think he’s capable of anything, there’s no limits to his abilities. What amazes me is that the critics are always surprised by Johnny. It’s like they don’t really watch what’s there, they don’t understand how good an actor he is he doesn’t cheat by giving you all these cheap emotions. He won’t make you comfortable for him that would be a foot in the grave"
