It’s been a pretty bad week for Johnny Depp. While there’s been some accusations made against the actor that we won’t go into here, yet another one of his films has opened to a tepid box office response, which highlights just how far his star status has fallen.

Johnny Depp now hasn’t led a box-office barnstormer since 2011’s Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Since then, The Rum Diary, Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, Transcendence, Mortdecai, Black Mass and now Alice Through The Looking Glass have either been a flop, performed poorly or have been critically savaged. While it’s hugely disappointing to see Johnny Depp struggling so badly to create films that resonate with a mainstream audience, he’s still undeniably talented. Johnny Depp just needs to make some slight adjustments to get back on track. Thankfully for the three time Oscar nominee, I have some suggestions for him.

Start Acting His Age
Johnny Depp is 52-years-old. However, except for his stunning performance as Whitey Bulger in Black Mass – which was undone by some needlessly pandering sentimentality to try and provide a reason for the Boston gangster’s mindset – in recent years we haven’t seen Johnny Depp act his age or take on a character that seems genuinely personal. Instead, he’s been masked behind makeup (Alice Through The Looking Glass) or has been overly eccentric (Mortedcai), which only seems to exacerbate his tabloid reputation as an odd-ball. In order to remind us of the acting prowess that we all know he possesses, we now need to see a truly honest, naked performance from him. Althogh his bombastic efforts previously worked so well for him in the past, they now seem to be alienating audiences.
