Johnny Depp is one of the hippest people alive and has been since he came on the scene in the late eighties. Not many actors can pull off that mystique for decades and he continues to do it. (Don’t mention Amber Heard. Don’t mention Amber Heard.).
With so many of us still enthralled and engrossed in the life of one of the greatest actors out there, we put together answers to some of the most asked questions about this freakishly awesome man. From Johnny Depp’s house, where he lives, to his ancestry, we have your ultimate Johnny Depp guide right here!
Where Does Johnny Depp Live?
Depp has real estate all over the world. He has property in Los Angeles, France (he owns a village, guys!), and The Bahamas (he owns an island, guys!). Where he spends his time depends on who he is with.
His Los Angeles real estate holdings have consolidated recently, as he has sold off multiple penthouses in Downtown LA in the Art Deco Eastern Columbia Building. One of the units, which he sold in 2017 for $1.425 million, was a 1-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo.
The unit featured vaulted ceilings and exposed brick walls in the master suite as well as a marble bathroom and a lounge area. How big is the condo, you ask? It’s 1,839 square feet of luxury living space.
His main residence is located on a tiny street in the Hollywood Hills. The dude has no shortage of bedrooms.
Johnny Depp bought the property in 1995 for $1.8 million. It’s reported that the compound has 5 houses. What we can confirm is the size of the main house. It’s a whopping 7,430 square feet.
The home has a signature gothic, castle look…not surprising. That’s what Depp is known for! It’s got 8-bedrooms, 10-bathrooms, and is believed to be worth $19 million.
What Race Is Johnny Depp?
This is a bit of a loaded question as Depp himself has claimed that he was told he was Cherokee Indian or Creek Indian. It’s possible but those who research celebrity ancestry – and they are very thorough – can’t find anything about it on record in his family history.
He is mainly of European descent; however, there is a bit of an interesting detail in the background of his ancestry. He can be traced back to a black slave named Martha whose daughter was the first female slave to free herself using the legal system. Elizabeth Key’s father was a white Englishman and she used the fact that she had an English father as her defense to win freedom for both her and her son.
This ancestry puts Johnny Depp in the 3/2048 African range. And what a unique piece of history to be related to. Is there anything about Johnny that isn’t cool? (Let’s not mention that divorce.)
Where Was Johnny Depp Born?
Johnny Depp was born in Owensboro, Kentucky. This gives Kentucky more cool points with both Depp and Jennifer Lawrence hailing from there.

It’s called Le Plan-de-la-Tour, France and is ten miles from Saint-Tropez, France. Depp purchased a 37-acre estate in 2001 which included an entire village built in 1812. After purchasing the village, Depp threw down an additional $10 million to restore and update many of the stone buildings on the estate.
There are over a dozen structures that collectively measure over 10,000 square feet and boast a whopping 15-bedrooms and 14-bathrooms.

As of July 2016, it was on the market for $55 million.

Does Johnny Depp Own an Island?
Yes, yes he does, in the Bahamas. Named “Little Hall’s Pond Cay”, the island is 45 acres and features 6 beaches, which Depp named Paradis, Lily Rose, Jack, Brando, and Gonzo.
The island has been Depp’s private slice of paradise since 2004, but it was recently listed for sale as he is trying to liquidate his assets at the moment. He finally decided to trust his accountant and management when they said he had to downsize a bit. Must be tough giving up an island.
It’s all good, though because his business managers and partners pushed him to get rid of his $18 million yacht, so he sold it to JK Rowling! This sale also included a $350,000 a month upkeep. Yikes, JK!
