Johnny Depp definitely reigns as one of Hollywood's best actors, but did you know he may be royalty himself? Genealogist Nick Barratt, a researcher for the British version of “Who Do You Think You Are?,” believes that Depp, who was born in rural Kentucky, is 20th cousins with Queen Elizabeth.
“When I examined Johnny’s history I discovered a likely connection to the royal family,” Barratt told the Mirror
. “I’ve since established the family tree that demonstrates how. You have to go back more than 500 years to reach the point where his ancestors become royal.” —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
