    So what's Johnny got to look forward to at 50?

    If you're taking a page from Clooney, you could score a girlfriend like Stacy Keibler, and if you're Tom Cruise, you can expect to still own the box office.

    But obviously Depp's got nothing to worry about. Being 2012's highest-paid actor and scoring Best Actor at the Golden Globes for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street not to mention the Screen Actors Guild award for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, it seems Johnny has made his way almost over the hill just fine.

    Happy Birthday, Mr. Depp!
