This gallery celebrates Johnny Depps surprise appearance as the Celebrity Mystery Guest at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, which were held at Pauley Pavilion on the UCLA campus in Westwood, California on April 2, 2005. Host Ben Stiller introduced Johnny as the coolest actor in Hollywood, and an audience of excited young fans screamed their approval. Despite being drenched in that Nickelodeon specialty, gooey bright green slime, Johnny looked relaxed and happy, and took obvious pleasure in exchanging high-fives with as many children in the audience as he could reach. These pictures, taken before, during, and after the broadcast, deserve a place in the Zones galleries because they document an event unique in Johnnys public life. Not only do they demonstrate his bond with his youngest fans, they prove that, on Johnny Depp, even green slime looks very appealing.
The Zone thanks Susanne, bonnie, and AnaMaria for contributing several pictures to this gallery. We really appreciate your generosity!
