Johnny Depp is enjoying the Boston food scene!

The Transcendence actor has been hitting up some of Boston’s most popular restaurants while in town shooting Black Mass, a film about Boston gangster Whitey Bulger.

On Monday night, Depp popped by brick-oven pizza joint Regina Pizzeria in Boston’s Italian neighborhood, the North End.

Dressed in a tan hoodie, jeans and the park ranger/boonie hat that he’s been repeatedly wearing around town, Depp ordered a slice of pizza and had a great time with the staff. He took several photos with employees, and even let one of them try on his hat for a photo.

“He just ran in for a slice,” said a bystander. “Just a really normal guy.”

After a group of fans in front of the Thatcher Street restaurant begged Depp’s security for photos, the actor came out and happily snapped pics with them.

“He was super-friendly,” said one of the fans. “He told us to have a great night.”

Last week, Depp headed to Roy’s Cold Cuts in East Boston, where he feasted on “The Godfather,” a sandwich made of imported parma prosciutto, chicken cutlet, tomato, fresh mozzarella cheese, roasted peppers seasoning and oil.

Depp’s fiancée, Amber Heard, is currently in Cannes.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Amber is only using Johnny for exposure (and money).

To the only two people to make comments here, hate to burst your little bubbles but neither of you know him on a personal level nor do you know Ms. Heard so you have no right to say or think you know what is good for him or her. Get out of your fantasy world

boston loves you on

he’s a nice guy and cool to know he’s enjoying his time in boston by eating or doing bookshoping, etc. About the people complaining for the mention of Amber Heard. She’s his fiancee, she certainly have much more to do with Johnny than any of you. And as far we know she is also around Boston since Johnny is here.

Johnny’s happy with Amber. She’s a beautiful woman and any man would be lucky to have her, just so happens Johnny fell in love with her. True fans of Johnny’s would be happy for him. They have a lot in common besides being beautiful people. Wish them much happiness. What if Johnny helps her with her career that’s what any engaged couple would do for each other. A true fan would enjoy his movies and let him worry about his private life.

The article is about what a nice, friendly person Johnny Depp is, and to anyone familiar with JP–this is the same as he has always been–nothing new. Every article does not have to encompass his everyday existence and activities–including his family & fiancé.
In regards to his relationships, that is really no one’s business but his own–don’t you think? JD being the person he has always been–could care less anyway. He has always marched to the beat of his own drummer and wants to live & let live. Pretty sage philosophy, I say.

That is not Johnny Depp that is his impersonator, most of the photos on here are of impersonator Danny Lopez and or Vanessa Paradis Lopez. Did Amber marry Danny Lopez to become Amber Lopez? It’s irresponsible and needs to be corrected, we expect better from People Magazine.
