JOHNNY DEPP was so determined to impress author HUNTER S THOMPSON while studying him for the movie FEAR + LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS, he drove his convertible from Colorado to Nevada in the middle of winter.

Thompson was amazed when the actor asked if he could borrow his beaten-up old car to drive to Vegas, just like the writer's drugged-up character does in the movie.

He says, "It was 15 degrees out and the convertible top was broken. He drove that son of a bitch from here to Las Vegas with the top down. He was determined.

"I liked the way he wanted to take the convertible in a blizzard to Las Vegas."
