How Johnny Depp Achieved a Net Worth of $400 Million

At the risk of aging myself, I remember when Johnny Depp was on 21 Jump Street, back in the 1980s. Since then, Depp has experienced quite the career as an actor. There is no doubt that Depp has range and depth. Through his success as an actor, Depp has been able to amass quite a fortune over the years. According to Celebrity Wealth, Depp has amassed a fortune that places him at a net worth of $400 million.

Any time you see a net worth in the nine-figure range, you have to ask yourself how the person was able to do. Hitting seven figures can happen through hard work and practices the proper principles, but moving into nine-figures requires a different level of operating. According to sources, Depp achieves the largest portion of his current wealth from the Pirates of the Carribean franchise.

On a side note, there is a legitimate reason that some fans and critics may be surprised at the fact that Depp has done so well in amassing his fortune. It is not that he has not put in the work to earn him a large amount of money. He has been in quite a few high grossing films. The problem is that Johnny has developed a reputation for spending lavishly on almost every whim you can think of. He has purchased an island. What in the world would a person need with their own entire island?

Actually, I tend to view in a different light. Johnny Depp is a high school dropout who decided to leave school for a career in the music industry. While that didn’t quite work itself out, it did allow him to find himself and put himself in front of people who could recognize his talent in front of the camera. Depp moved his band called The Kids to Los Angeles, but the band didn’t have much success. Fortunately for Depp, he started a romantic relationship with a makeup artist who knew Nicolas Cage. Cage got Depp an audition and the rest is history.

You probably don’t remember this but Depp got film acting debut in Wes Craven’s Nightmare on Elm Street, but his big break came a few years later in 21 Jump Street. He would leave the television series in 1990 in order to focus on his movie career. At the time that Depp left the series there were some who questioned his decision, but as it turned out, it was probably the best decision he has made.

While Johnny’s music career didn’t take the course he would have liked, he has not totally abandoned music. In fact, his character in Chocolat played an acoustic guitar and he actually played on the soundtrack of Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Johnny remains one of the top-grossing actors in Hollywood and he still has a lot of time to do far more than he has done so far.

Despite his lavish spending, it appears that Johnny Depp is doing well financially. This will be news to a lot of people who have believed the reports fo tabloids suggesting that the actor is broke. I believe that a $400 million net worth is far from being broke. The question that everyone is asking right now is when will depth take on a role that will land him the coveted Oscar. To be honest, I thought he should have won an Oscar for Secret Window. His performance in that twisted plot was beyond masterful.

It is clear that Depp has the talent to land an Oscar but timing is everything. It is not whether a performance is Oscar-worthy, but who else has an Oscar-worthy project on deck. Sometimes the competition is stacked so steeply that your name is simply not in the cards. In the meantime, there are fans who are hoping for another Pirates of the Carribean installment. I am sure that Depp will not mind, being that it was this production that contributed so heavily to his current net worth.

Johnny Depp’s net worth is strong, and his position in Hollywood suggests that he is not done yet. It is uncertain where he will end up when all of this is done, but what he has accomplished to this point is pretty impressive.
