Usually a $4400.00 bill would garner a 15% tip of $660.00, but obviously Depp saw how hard the guy worked and how he was willing to stay up and keep serving long after they closed, appreciated it... A LOT!Report: Johnny Depp Leaves $4K Tip For Chicago Waiter
June 24, 2009
CHICAGO, Ill. -- Johnny Depp has previously said that money isn't the key to happiness.
But during a visit to a Chicago restaurant, the star certainly brought joy to one unsuspecting waiter with a reported sizable tip.
Depp, his "Public Enemies" co-star Marion Cotillard, director Michael Mann, along with about a dozen other folks -- who were in Chicago last week for the premiere of their new gangster movie -- made a stop at Gibsons Steakhouse around 11:30 PM, according to the Chicago Sun Times.
Once the bill came around 2:30 AM -- totaling up to a reported $4,400 -- Depp made sure the man who waited on the group into the late hours was well compensated for his time, as Mohammaed A. Sekhani reportedly received a $4,000 tip from the star.
I don't see this as a gimmick or a smarmy way to get more attention. Depp is a huge star by all rights and purposes so I think he probably has a generous nature.
Now, if he would ONLY come on one of my Ruby Falls Cave tours...
