The Secret of Johnny Depp's Youth

The Mirror has reported that Johnny Depp's youthful good looks are down to his exercise regime and his diet. At a recent stay in Vancouver Johnny's fridge had to be stocked with blueberries, strawberries, pineapple, kiwi and soy milk. Johnny's diet, hotel staff were told, must be low-sodium, not greasy and any dressings must be low-calorie. Depp also had his favourite tipple to hand – Bordeaux. He was given a bottle of Château Haut Brion wine.

Depp's favourite wine is Château Calon-Ségur, a Saint Estéphe and red wine has long been held responsible for the French Paradox – the fact that the French live a long and healthy life due to their love of red wine. Roger Corder's book The Red Wine Diet has investigated this phenomenon and resveratrol (found in red wine) is being proclaimed a wonder drug which is claimed to induce, amongst many other things, longevity.

The cigarettes also help.
