Johnny Depp hits the half-century mark today.

One of Hollywood’s favorite actors for years, the Kentucky native is showing no signs of slowing down as he enters his sixth decade on this ninth of June.

A critical and fan favorite, he was 2012’s highest-paid actor while winning Best Actor at the Golden Globes for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

He also claimed the SAG Award for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and can be seen this summer with Armie Hammer in The Lone Ranger.

Not bad for a 50-year-old.


He’s also reportedly dating Amber Heard, his gorgeous Rum Diary co-star, after both thespians ended their respective, long-term relationships last year.

Between Depp, Brad Pitt (49), Tom Cruise (50) and George Clooney (52), it’s looks like 50 is the new 30 for Hollywood leading men these days.

Happy birthday Johnny!
