Johnny Depp Net Worth

While Depp's net worth reportedly has taken a hit as his net worth was an extra $50 million ($200 million total) some years prior to his lawsuit, everyone would be remiss to think or say that he is down on his luck these days.

Unfortunately, that same lawsuit revealed that at various times, Johnny was teetering near insolvency due to an unimaginably profligate lifestyle. At his peak, his monthly lifestyle costs topped $2 million. 

Johnny Depp Early Life

Johnny Depp was born John Christopher Depp II, in Owensboro, Kentucky, on June 9, 1963, to parents John and Betty Sue Depp. Depp's father worked as a civil engineer and his mother worked as a waitress and homemaker. The youngest of four children, Depp was withdrawn and a self-admitted oddball. 

Johnny Depp Early Life

Johnny Depp and his family moved frequently to accommodate his father's job, finally landing in Miramar, Florida, when Depp was 7 years old. The family lived in a motel for nearly a year, until his father found a job. Depp hated his new home and, by the age of 12 began smoking, experimenting with drugs and engaging in self-harm due to the stress of family problems.

In 1978, when Depp was 15, his parents got divorced. As the youngest of four, it became Depp's job to go to his father's office and pick up the weekly child-support money. The split caused a rift between Depp and his father.

At 16, Johnny Depp dropped out of high school and joined a garage band called the Kids. The group became successful enough to open for the Talking Heads and the B-52s, but they barely made ends meet. Johnny Depp lived for months in a friend's '67 Chevy Impala.

Introduction to Acting and '21 Jump Street'

In 1983, at the age of 20, Depp met and married 25-year-old makeup artist Lori Allison. That same year, the couple moved to L.A. with Depp's band in the hopes of striking it big. Still living on a shoestring budget, Depp and his bandmates supported themselves by selling pens for a telemarketing firm.

A year later, Depp fell into acting when his wife introduced him to her ex-boyfriend, actor Nicolas Cage. Cage saw potential in Johnny Depp and introduced the hopeful musician to a Hollywood agent. After several small roles as an extra, Depp landed his first legitimate movie role in the horror film Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).
