Rare Johnny Depp and Family Photos Featured in Book


There's no doubt about it: when it comes to cool, Johnny Depp is king. Everything about him just oozes self confidence and sheer hipness. His movies are cool, his style is cool, hell even his family is cool. But what's cooler than cool isn't the way he dresses or acts. It's the way he has managed to shield his children and commonlaw wife, Vanessa Paradis, from the glaring eye of the paparazzi. Even when the fate of his daughter's life hang in the balance after a life-threating kidney infection back in '07, Johnny somehow managed to keep the prying eye of the paps away from his very private personal life. In fact, up until now the actor has done all he can to prevent pics of his beloved family from being leaked. However after years of working to keep his children out of the public eye Johnny has finaly agreed to share *a bit* of his family with the world. Johnny & company can currently be seen in the pages of "I Missed You", the latest book by photographer Francois-Marie Banier, the godfather of Johnny's daughter, 10 year old Lily-Rose. And while I normally do not post pictures of children, there was something about the innocence of these photos and the beauty of family that really makes them special. Maybe it's the fall weather that's got me feeling so domestic or perhaps it's just that I'm a sucker for black and white photos, but I really love these shots. Especially this one, which might be in the running for one of my favorites of all time:

Johnny is definitely the epitome of cool. I've been a big fan of his since the mid-80's. It's so awesome to see some photos of him and his family. You don't usually see things like this. He's definitely one of the few modern idols I have.

i think its really cool that he's managed to keep his private life so private despite being one of (if not the biggest) movie star of this time. in fact i can see why you like him Keith-he will easily go down as one of the greats.
