He has cooperated with director and friend Tim Burton in eight films; the most current being Dark Shadows (2012).

Johnny Depp has enlarged commendation for his depictions of such people as Ed Wood in Ed Wood, Joseph D. Pistone in Donnie Brasco, Hunter S. Thompson in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, George Jung in Blow, and the bank robber John Dillinger in Michael Mann’s Public Enemies. Films containing Depp have earned over $3.1 billion at the United States box office and over $7.6 billion all-inclusive. His commercially most fruitful films have been Pirates of the Caribbean (film series) which made US$ 3,727 million, Alice in Wonderland which received US$ 1,024 million, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which grossed US$ 474 million and The Tourist which made US$ 278 million globally.

Johnny Depp has been timetabled for top rewards lots of times, winning the Best Actor Awards from the Golden Globes for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and from the Screen Actors Guild for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. He also has gathered a symbol position in American cinema, being double named as the “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine in 2003 and 2009. He has been registered in the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records as the highest paid actor, with $75 million.
