Johnny Depp is one of Hollywood’s most celebrated actors known for his wide range of roles throughout the years but the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor never looked better than at the New York premiere for his new movie “The Rum Diary” on Tuesday.

The A-list actor wore a gray blazer, tinted glasses, and blue nail polish as he talked about the film based on the novel by the late Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson that opens this Friday.

The book’s original manuscript was actually found by Depp himself while he was visiting the writer’s home. He told Reuter’s,”I found the manuscript (in his home). We were reading it, sitting cross-legged on the floor and he said, ‘We have to make this into a film and produce it together.’ I said ‘Sure,’ never knowing that we would full-on go through with it.”

The two had been friends ever since the actor portrayed Thompson in the 1998 movie “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” At Tuesday’s film premiere Depp explained the personal meaning of the film to him and those who knew the late writer.

“It’s a beautiful sort of closure for me, it’s a beautiful closure for Hunter’s, all the people who were close to Hunter ’cause we worked on this from basically 1997 until now,” he told Access. “We lost Hunter in 2005 and we ended up getting it done and it’s all he wanted. It’s all we wanted, so we did it,” he said.

We can’t wait to check out the long time arrival of “The Rum Diary” this weekend but in the meantime here are our favorite J-Depp red carpet looks.

2008 Red Carpet for The Academy Awards

In 2008 Depp was looking mighty fine as he walked the red carpet for the Academy Awards. The actor showed up wearing Giorgio Armani head to toe in a tuxedo and silk bowtie.

2007 “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” Premiere

We aren’t sure what look Mr. Depp was attempting to master at the 2007 premiere for his movie. It kinda looks like he rolled out of bed and threw on anything he could find.

2006 “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” Premiere

This dude loves him some bracelets! Decked out in an array of accessories J-Depp’s left bracelet looks more like a hospital bandage than a trendy piece of flair.

2001 Los Angeles Premiere of “Blow”

If this brooding star showed up looking like this in 2011 we might think he was auditioning for “Twilight!” The actor’s dark ensemble, long hair, and scowling face make him a shoe-in as one of Bella’s other star-crossed lovers. What do you think?

Have the actor’s looks transformed over the years? Do you think he looks better now or at previous red carpet events?
