“If there’s any message to my work, it is ultimately that it’s OK to be different, that it’s good to be different, that we should question ourselves before we pass judgment on someone who looks different, behaves different, talks different, is a different color.”

-Johnny Depp

This week’s quote is from actor, film producer and musician Johnny Depp. Some of Depp’s works include Edward Scissorhands,  Sleepy Hollow,  Pirates of the Caribbean Film Series, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Rango and Alice in Wonderland. Johnny Depp’s characters range from deranged  pirates to the voice of a lizard. Whatever film Depp appears in has to be good. Johnny Depp, is 50 years old and has won several awards in his lifetime.

This quote was chosen this week to show that Johnny Depp who has a worth of 350 million dollars and was twice named as “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine thinks judging people based on appearance is bad. Judging others based on how they look does not reflect on them badly, but reflects badly on the person judging. Johnny Depp is one of the best known actors, as well as the highest paid. Depp did not become the highest paid actor because he was like every other actor but because he was himself and made every part that he played his own. In Depp’s quote he wants everyone to look at themselves before they pass judgement. Everyone is created different and equal. Just because someone acts or looks different does not mean they deserve to be detrimented.
