Now We Know Why Johnny Depp Is So Secretive

It’s all Marlon Brando’s fault! Wait what? It seems that at one point in Johnny Depp’s career he was open about his personal life. But Marlon gave him a talking to and it totally stuck.

“I had done some television interview, and they asked about my family life and kids. I talked about how I’m a proud father and how much I love my kids and how they’re fun and what we do and how it’s great. I was thinking that if in 25, 35 years my kids watch old footage, I’d be proud for them to see their dad saying how much he loves them. Well, the show aired, and I get a phone call: “What the f**k are you doing?’ I said, “Marlon, what are you talking about?’ He said, “That’s none of their business!’ “I tried to say, “Marlon, listen, man, I only wanted my kids to… ‘ And it was like he gave me this sort of once-over. “You don’t do it, man. That’s your world and it’s nobody else’s business. It’s not anybody’s entertainment.’ And he was right.”

Colin Farrell In NYC

Colin Farrell was a busy little Irish bee making several appearances around NYC. He was photographed outside Sixty Thompson Hotel talking on cell phone (to me) and having a cigarette. Later was seen inside, through a window, having a conversation with a group of friends. Lastly, he was snapped heading to the after party for the screening of ‘Cassandra’s Dream’ at the Soho Grand.Colin does not like the constant attention of the paparazzi while in the city. TMZ has some footage where he snapped,”Must be nobody in f***in’ New York, is it?”

Jessica Simpson Is The Next Julia Roberts?

instyl-jess.jpg

Looks like Papa Joe is pushing to have Jessica Simpson reprise Julia Robert’s Pretty Woman role. In fact, Joe is so excited about the project, that he is claiming that his daughter IS the next Julia Roberts. If he was my father….

“She think this one’s got hit written all over it. (Her father) Joe has been telling anyone who will listen that she’s the next Julia Roberts.”

Assuming this is true, do you think Jessica would make a good Vivian Ward?source
