Is Johnny Depp not the coolest guy EVER?????


--------------
CHICAGO, Ill. -- Johnny Depp has previously said that money isn't the key to happiness.

But during a visit to a Chicago restaurant, the star certainly brought joy to one unsuspecting waiter with a reported sizable tip.

Depp, his "Public Enemies" co-star Marion Cotillard, director Michael Mann, along with about a dozen other folks -- who were in Chicago last week for the premiere of their new gangster movie -- made a stop at Gibsons Steakhouse around 11:30 PM, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

Once the bill came around 2:30 AM -- totaling up to a reported $4,400 -- Depp made sure the man who waited on the group into the late hours was well compensated for his time, as Mohammaed A. Sekhani reportedly received a $4,000 tip from the star.

"He had visited our restaurant several times before while he was filming 'Public Enemies' and he promised me that he would return after the premiere," Sekhani told Radar Online.

According to the longtime Gibsons waiter, Depp and his friends ordered items including shrimp cocktails, Clams Casino, as well as a few expensive bottles of wine.

"He also ordered some $500 bottles of Italian wine and he was in good spirits throughout the evening chatting with Mr. Mann and Miss Cotillard," Sekhani added.

Generous tip aside, Sekhani said he always enjoys waiting on the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star each time he visits Gibsons.

"Because he had visited us before he calls me 'Mo' and I know exactly the way he likes to be treated. He may be one of the most famous actors in the world but he is a very 'humble guy' and a really cool dude," the waiter continued. "I have worked with a lot of stars like Sean Connery and Robert De Niro but Johnny Depp is my favorite He is a very soft spoken guy who is very charming and sweet -- when I wait for him he doesn't like to be too fussed over and is not in any way demanding."

When contacted by Access Hollywood, a rep for Depp was not immediately available for comment on the story.

I love this story. I like the fact her realized someone was working very late to accompate him and his friends. He let that waiter know he appreciated him. I love it when an actor is not a diva but real.

They filmed many of the scenes for "Public Enemies" about 20 miles from my house in very Northern Wisconsin at one of Al Capone's former hideouts last summer/fall. We drove up there, but of course it was all blocked off and we didn't get to see much.

He is so cool!

How cool of a story is this!?

I'm sure it is real, but this is TOTALLY what a movie in the 1930's and 1940's would do for publicity. Even down to the quote from the waiter.

*sigh* I love Johnny Depp. pirate::love:
