Being a journalist can definitely sometimes carry heavy perks — such as when Johnny Depp invites you to tag along on his yacht and visit his private island getaway. Vanity Fair contributing editor Douglas Brinkley was given such an opportunity recently and came away from the experience saying “it was pretty damn great”. No kidding.
As we’ve previously profiled, Depp bought the 35-acre island back in 2005 and affectionately named it “F**k Off! Island” — though it’s officially known as “Little Hall’s Pond Cay”. The actor has aspirations to make the living conditions on the island as green as possible — and has even commissioned a grid-independent solar hydrogen system from Mike Strizki.
In the article, Depp says “I don’t think I’d ever seen any place so pure and beautiful. You can feel your pulse rate drop about 20 beats. It’s instant freedom.” The issue hits newstands June 3rd. For a preview, jump here.
