Pirates of the Caribbean fans know Depp as the sword-swinging, fast-talking Captain Jack Sparrow, a confident and striking character – but he was once known a quieter young actor, besotted by his girlfriend. The star embarked on a whirlwind romance with his Edward Scissorhands co-star Winona Ryder from 1989 to 1993, which captivated the press – but shortly after their time together ended, Depp was inconsolable.
The 29-year-old at the time had just split with Ryder in 1993 when the filming for 1994 movie Ed Wood started.
Depp had once again teamed up with iconic and prolific director Tim Burton to bring the film to life, with Johnny taking the titular role.
However, things didn’t go as smoothly for Burton as he might have hoped.
