Woman 1:   Hey, did you hear? Johnny Depp has a new movie out. I can’t wait to see it!

Woman 2:   Oh, yeah? I like him. He’s a really great actor.

Woman 1:   And he’s very good-looking, too.

Woman 2:   Yeah, usually – but he changes the way he looks in every movie. In one movie he’ll have short hair and glasses, and in the next he’ll have long hair and a mustache.

Woman 1:   Oh, like in Pirates of the Caribbean! He had really long hair and a little pirate beard and mustache. I loved that movie!

Woman 2:   Yeah, I’d definitely like to see that again.


Woman 1:   What about that one where he plays a writer… Oh, what was the title? His hair was lighter, not exactly blond. It was kind of straight, and he had glasses. What was it? Oh, yeah, Secret Window! That’s it.

Woman 2:   Oh, that was so scary! But I loved it!

Woman 1:   Really? Actually, I didn’t think the movie was very good.

Woman 2:   Hmm. I thought it was really good.


Woman 1:   He can look pretty strange in some movies, too.

Woman 2:   Oh, I know. What’s that movie where he had straight hair, not real short, but not very long?

Woman 1:   Oh, yeah, that was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. He had no bread or mustache and his face was almost white. He looked so thin!

Woman 2:   Not Johnny’s best look – but I thought the movie was excellent.

Woman 1:   Mmm. I’m not so sure about the movie. I liked the book a lot better.


Woman 2:   There was another movie where he looked even stranger.

Woman 1:   Which one?

Woman 2:   You don’t remember? I’ll give you a hint. He had long, really wild, wavy hair. His eyes looked really big and dark. Lots of makeup, red lips, and then there were his hands.

Woman 1:   Edward Scissorhands!

Woman 2:   You guessed it! How could you forget?

Woman 1:   I don’t know! That was one of my favorite movies!

Woman 2:   Mine, too.


Woman 1:   We’ve really seen a lot of his movies. By the way, what’s your favorite Johnny Depp movie?

Woman 2:   Oh, I think my number one favorite is the one where he plays a schoolteacher in that little town.

Woman 1:   Sleepy Hollow?

Woman 2:   That’s it! Johnny’s hair is short and wavy. He’s very clean cut – no mustache or beard. He’s not so thin either. I mean, he looks just a little more heavyset than in his other movies. He really looks great.

Woman 1:   That was your favorite? I didn’t think it was very good at all.
