Johnny Depp credits the memories of two important figures in his life - legendary actor Marlon Brando and iconic journalist Hunter S Thompson, for helping him make major decisions in his life. Depp co-starred with Brando in 1995's DON JUAN DeMARCO and starred in 1998's Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas based on Thompson's classic book. He explains, "I wouldn't do anything that I thought could disappoint them or make them ashamed. "Even if I'm alone - even if I'm going down this road and I feel it's really what this character is and everyone in the world thinks I'm wrong - you've got to do what you believe in."
