Johnny Depp Gave a Waiter $4,000 Tip!
Not only he’s a big star, Johnny Depp is also a big tipper.
During a visit to a Chicago restaurant, the star reportedly gave an unsuspecting waiter a generous tip. When in Chicago last week after doing a premiere for his last movie Public Enemies, Depp took his co-stars to Gibsons Steakhouse.
Depp, actress Marion Cotillard, director Michael Mann and about a dozen other folks made a stop at the restaurant around 11:30 PM. They stayed there until 2:30 AM, and requested for the bill, that was totaling up to a reported $4,400.
The Pirates of the Carribean star paid the bill, and made sure that Mohammaed A. Sekhani, who waited on the group into the late hours was well compensated for his time. Sekhani reportedly received a $4,000 tip from the star.
When Sekhani got interviewed, he said that Depp had visited the restaurant several times before while he was filming ‘Public Enemies’ and he promised Sekhani that he would return after the premiere. Sekhani shared about Depp’s orders, saying Depp and his friends ordered items including shrimp cocktails, Clams Casino, as well as a few expensive bottles of wine. “He also ordered some $500 bottles of Italian wine and he was in good spirits throughout the evening chatting with Mr. Mann and Miss Cotillard,” Sekhani added.
Sekhani said he always enjoys waiting on 46-year-old star each time he visits Gibsons. “Because he had visited us before he calls me ‘Mo’ and I know exactly the way he likes to be treated. He may be one of the most famous actors in the world but he is a very ‘humble guy’ and a really cool dude. I have worked with a lot of stars like Sean Connery and Robert De Niro but Johnny Depp is my favorite He is a very soft spoken guy who is very charming and sweet — when I wait for him he doesn’t like to be too fussed over and is not in any way demanding.”
Cool act Mr. Depp! I bet all waiters would hope someday to meet you too… rite?!
