BREAKING NEWS–Johnny Depp named one of ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY's Top 25 Stars of 2007

Johnny Depp is featured in the new issue of ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY devoted to “the top 25 Entertainers of 2007” (author J. K. Rowling, the creator of Harry Potter, is on the cover). Johnny appears in the category of “Most Popular,” along with Matt Damon, Katherine Heigl, Carrie Underwood and Kanye West. Says EW’s Jeff Labreque, “When Johnny Depp sailed into the sunset at the end of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD’S END, the quirky heartthrob capped one of the most lucrative trilogies in movie history. Hollywood enthusiastically surrendered, handing him the lead role in Tim Burton’s big-screen musical adaptation of SWEENEY TODD without hearing him sing a note. Risky, dark, kooky: music to our ears.” EW adds a timeline of Johnny’s year, but coincidentally chooses the same Dan MacMedan photograph that PEOPLE used for Johnny in their “Sexiest Man Alive” issue last week. Hmm . . . great minds think alike?
