Johnny Depp's House: Hollywood's Former Bad-Boy Buys His Ex a $4.4 Million House

Random Celebrity Article By on September 12, 2012

Johnny Depp has actively bucked Hollywood convention since he turned heads as part of the cast of "21 Jump Street" in the late 80s.  He went on to appear in a string of roles that seemed to deliberately rebel against his oft-reported upon gorgeous looks, and made a name for himself as both an excellent actor, and a rather eccentric and unpredictable person.  After critically acclaimed performances in such films as "Edward Scissorhands", "Benny & Joon", "Ed Wood", "Donnie Brasco", "Sleepy Hollow", and "Chocolat", among other projects, he was cast as Captain Jack Sparrow in "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl".  His over-the-top, completely committed performance, turned a summer popcorn flick into one of the most critically and commercially successful franchises ever, and earned him an Oscar nomination.  Along the way towards super-stardom, he stopped setting hotel rooms on fire, settled down, and had two children with French actress, Vanessa Paradis.  Their nearly 15 year relationship was one that was often held up as an example of Hollywood relationships that actually last.  Unfortunately, they separated, amicably, in June 2012.  Their separation was apparently so amicable, that it included him buying her a house in Los Angeles this week, where he already owns two other homes.

Johnny Depp's house, purchased for Vanessa Paradis and their children, is 5,800 square feet and is made up of four bedrooms and five bathrooms.  The house also contains multiple fireplaces, high, open-beamed ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows.  Johnny Depp's house has a decidedly Mediterranean feel, with brightly colored tiled bathrooms, and stone floors.  The property also features a beautiful backyard terrace and swimming pool.  Johnny Depp's house cost $4.4 million, and seems like quite a nice way to ensure his family's comfort, even if they are not all together.
