Does anyone else find it somewhat strange that the letter Depp's holding is clearly not the one pictured right below?

I mean, what would be the point of faking it?
Smells fishy.

Maybe he wanted to keep the original as a memento. Either way between his visit to the school and his donation to the hospital that saved his child's life I'd say he's a total badass.

Possibly. But even if that's true, printing a fake letter there without at least labelling it "a letter like this" or something, is a pretty poor move in terms of journalism. It's the Daily Mail obviously, but if some random element of an article is so obviously fake, that speaks volumes about the overall trustworthiness of this particular source. Who knows, maybe it wasn't even Johnny Depp, but Al Gore, or Dita von Teese. Who visited a heart surgeons convention. And handed out candy. You're getting my point.

This is true, you know I've never really liked the daily mail, always seemed just a little too sleazy and tabloid-ish.

Could be that Dep was just trying to make a kids dream come true and not so worried about little details.
Just a thought.

I fail to see where he was implying otherwise. He was merely discussing how odd it was that the letters didn't match.

Children are greatly influenced by film. The reality is that they go to school and respect the teachers to continue with acting Dep.

I agree, it's not like we're accusing Johnny Depp of forging a letter, we're insinuating the shoddy journalism practices by the newspaper.

Johnn kept the letter, and the DailyMail had the kid rewrite one so they could get a better shot of it. No big deal.

Im sure she will remember that for the rest of her life.

Great story...i never thought he was that gracious. Changed my view of him.

Ah, that makes sense. Good deduction

Allow me to quote you once someone discovers a similar incident of journalistic inaccuracy in the context of, let's say, elections.

"The administrator lost the ballots and had his secretary re-write them for the verification commission; no big deal, he could still remember the original result."
The question is, if a certain newspaper doesn't consider it a big deal to cheat with certain news, where do they draw the line? (I know you like lines.) Will they also cheat with local sports results? Is there anything they won't cheat with?

Seriously, you don't do stuff like that in journalism. Your business relies on people believing what you write. That is just really poor style, even if it's "not a big deal" in this particular case.
