Is it just me or has Johnny Depp been looking the same since 1990? Whatever he’s using to keep his youthful glow needs to be passed on to a few other actors because this man knows how to age. This revelation came to me when the first photos from his upcoming film The Rum Diary surfaced online. They both feature Depp, and even though he recently turned 47 he looks better than ever!

The Rum Diary is based on a book written by Hunter S. Thompson that’s been adapted by Bruce Robinson. It centers on a freelance journalist named Paul Kemp (Depp) who finds himself at a critical turning point in his life while writing for a run-down newspaper in the Caribbean. He tries to change the path of his career but comes up against several forces bent on destroying themselves and all those around them.

The film co-stars Richard Jenkins, Aaron Eckhart, Giovanni Ribisi, and Amanda Heard. Depp just can’t stay away from the Hunter S. Thompson material or the Caribbean can he? I’m starting to notice a serious trend with him.
