Johnny Depp tops poll of best autograph signers for 3rd year in a row

In news that comes as no surprise whatsoever to the Zone’s readers, Johnny Depp has once again been named the most cooperative and gracious celebrity when it comes to signing autographs; this is the third year in a row that Johnny has topped the survey conducted by AUTOGRAPH Magazine. Noting Johnny’s perennial position at the top of the list of “the ten best signers,” Steve Cyrkin, the editor and publisher of AUTOGRAPH Magazine, said, “Whether at a premiere, in a restaurant or on location, Depp may just be the best Hollywood autograph signer of all time.” Certainly many Zone members can corroborate Johnny’s kindness from their own experience; as cherished as the signature is the moment spent with Johnny as he signed his name.

The celebrity ranked worst to those seeking autographs this year was Will Ferrell. “What’s so frustrating about Will Ferrell being the worst autograph signer this past year is that he used to be so nice to fans and collectors, and a great signer,” said Cyrkin. “What makes him so bad is that he’ll taunt people asking for his autograph.” There’s one more reason to admire Johnny Depp–after twenty-some years of being besieged for autographs on a daily basis, he still smiles, signs, and makes the recipient feel special.
