New BFF Alert: Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson

Really, as Sarah told you a couple of weeks ago, the BFF-ship between Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson is not new at all. As Manson said, he and Johnny first met on the set of 21 Jump Street, where he was an extra, and the friendship started there. That means they’ve been friends for 24 years. That’s longer than I’ve been alive, you guys. So why am I referring to this as a “new BFF alert”?

It’s because they’ve just really started to come out with their friendship. I can’t remember ever seeing anything about these two dudes together, and it really is, as Sarah referred to it back when she first told you about this wacky friendship, some mighty intense f-ckery. In what world would a man like Johnny Depp and a man like Marilyn Manson make such close friends?

I have no idea, but in that world, Johnny Depp shows up at Marilyn Manson’s concert and plays guitar during a cover of “Sweet Dreams.”

And this wasn’t in that video, and I know because I suffered through it one more time just to check, but Marilyn had some sweet words to say about Johnny after the song was finished:

After running through the song “Sweet Dreams,” Manson, 43, shouted to the crowd, “If you don’t recognize my personal friend … my personal savior, my personal guitar hero … Johnny Depp!” The crowd roared its approval.

“My personal savior”? Goodness, this bromance must be more intense than I originally thought.

  • Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson are friends because they share similar values and personality traits. Both are incredibly intelligent. Both love writing, art, acting, and Depp is actually a fan of Mansons music. “If you go beyond the album cover, listen closely, you get good messages from his music and great life lessons.” Although that wasn’t word for word, Depp did say that about Manson.
