Johnny Depp is the man. We have always believed this, but there can be no doubt after reading this story. Mohammed A. Sekhani, a veteran waiter at Chicago's legendary steakhouse Gibsons, was recently given a tip by the actor.

Of $4,000.

“Johnny and his party arrived just after 11:30 .p.m at the restaurant and requested a private room. He had visited several times before while he was filming Public Enemies and he promised me that he would return after the premiere," he recalled.

Sekhani says Johnny Depp and his party ordered appetizers as they prepared his favorite dish Clams Casino – clams baked with garlic, pepper and cheese.

Said Sekhani: “He also ordered some $500 bottles of Italian wine and he was in good spirits throughout the evening chatting with Mr. Mann and Ms. Cotillard." 

"I have worked with a lot of stars like Sean Connery and Robert De Niro but Johnny Depp is my favorite. He is very soft spoken, very charming and sweet – when I wait for him he doesn’t like to be too fussed over and is not in any way demanding."

“Because he had visited us before he calls me ‘Mo’ and I know exactly the way he likes to be treated. He may be one of the most famous actors in the world but he is a very ‘humble guy’ and a really cool dude," the waiter continued.

Obviously, I was delighted with his tip but he has always been very generous every time that he has visited us here at Gibsons. When the party left around 2:30 he smiled and told me that he would return – they were a great group of people.”

Sounds like it.
