Handsome leading men from two different eras — Johnny Depp and Sean Connery — met for the first time at a film festival in the Bahamas Sunday, an affair that honored the Pirates Of The Caribbean star with an award for his life’s work.
Connery, who presented Depp with the award, played a game of pool with Depp following the ceremony.
Depp remained humble and introspective on his special day.
“Whenever anybody say they are going to give me some kind of award, I’m always a little stupefied by the notion. The first thing I say is, ‘Why?’,” Depp told the AP. “I just go to work like anyone else, except my job happens to be a little stranger.”
Leslie Vanderpool, the director of the event, said that said Depp’s ties to the area (he has a home in the Bahamas) made giving the accomplished actor the honors that much sweeter.
“What makes this tribute to Johnny even more special,” Vanderpool told the BBC, “is that he has a home in the Bahamas and possesses a true love and appreciation for the region and culture.”
