Johnny's deal with the devil

Johnny Depp walked on stage to claim his MTV movie award, last week, and jaws dropped. Women screamed. Diablo Cody actually swooned. I was sure the place was going to implode from the amount of estrogen generated at the sight of the movie star. What in god's name has Johnny Depp been doing to age so well? The only other guy I know who is aging as well is Daniel Lam, the owner of Shuang Cheng Restaurant near the University of Minnesota. I've seen Daniel behind the register for 18 years and swear the man gets younger as the days go by. I always have held firm that Daniel's made a pact with the devil for everlasting youthfulness. Maybe Johnny Depp did the same thing. Vanessa Paradis, Depp's longtime girlfriend, probably made a pact with the devil just to be with the actor. Smart gal.
