Does Johnny Depp have autism?
Johnny Depp is an American actor known for playing off-beat characters, like Captain Jack Sparrow in The Pirates of the Carribean and Edward Scissorhands. There has been speculation that he may be on the autism spectrum, and many believe that his character, Edward Scissorhands, was also on the spectrum. Johnny admits to being a strange, withdrawn child. He says, “I made odd noises as a child. Just did weird things, like turn off light switches twice. I think my parents thought I had Tourette’s.” If Johnny Depp is on the autism spectrum, he has not publicly acknowledged it.
