I'll take his unwashed locks and ciggiescent anytime.
Makes one wonder about Winona a little. Burton's 'Frankenweenie' is due out soon and Winona did voiceovers for a character. Burton and Depp are besties so I'd imagine Winona and Depp may have crossed paths.
Since we are already fantasizing (you know you are), what would you do if you found yourself sitting next to him on an airplane? I know, how did you get in first class?
Would you nerd out? Try to act cool? Ask a million questions? Act like you were sleeping? Offer some chocolate? some blow? Ask him to sign your copy of Skymall for your 'friend'?
I'd probably engage in a million questions and ask about all the places their careers took them and what favorite parts they had even though before I even got my first question out they'd probably cue in and have to 'go use the restroom' and be gone for a long time. (I like run on sentences.)

That's a good question. IMO, there are three types of celebrities:
1. Those that crave attention.
2. Those that politely accept their fame.
3. Those that want nothing to do with their fame.
I would test the waters to find out which he really is and respect whatever it ends up being. Of course, everyone has a bad day, too. I enjoy sleeping on planes. I wouldn't want the person next to me yapping my ear off. I can respect a celebrity that would feel the same way.
Oh Anny, Anny, Anny... you are going to have a long flight to Israel.
I've had some really great conversations on long flights. You just have to know when to quit and take a break. I have this thing about me though that invites people to talk to me and tell me strange things. I don't know what it is but mostly it is interesting when people do that.
I have learned to give off the Don't Talk To Me vibe, Bider. I just want to read my book or work on my puzzles or whatev. And I have to have the window seat too. I have space issues and having the window helps.
I HAVE to have the aisle seat. I loathe having to ask someone to please let me pass to go potty, LOATHE it.
I normally don't talk to anyone sitting besides me, but if they do, I don't mind it, for a while. That way, I've got to know pretty interesting people from around the world, from this elderly gentleman who was a mega super rich guy from Germany (we were on a flight through Latin America, he didn't speak any Spanish and none of the flight attendants spoke any English, so I helped him) to this huge Marine who had served in a base in Ecuador.
I generally like people, and when I travel alone I must look miserable, because somebody always talks to me, always.
I know, some day I will be targeted by a serial killer.
"The 'Zombieland' and 'Pineapple Express' star, who will soon appear as Jonny Depp's love interest in 'The Rum Diaries,' came out with her girlfriend, photographer Tasya van Ree, whom she has been dating since 2008."
Wow, Johnny really has super powers if he can reverse "born this way".
I would switch teams for Selma Hayek and any Olympic athlete from Brazil. Of course, it's easy to say that when my statistical probability of being killed by terrorists is 322% higher than the likelihood of meeting an elite beach volleyball player who wants to be my love muffin.
