Johnny Depp's waiter blabs about $4,000 tip



Tbd-johnnydepp062509 A waiter at Chicago's Gibsons steakhouse got a nice tip from Johnny Depp the other night, to the tune of $4,000! That's a nice markup from the $1,500 he gave at a Wisconsin restaurant last year

"He had visited our restaurant several times before while he was filming Public Enemies and he promised me that he would return after the premiere," Mohammed A. Sekhani told Radar Online. The actor, along with director Michael Mann and co-star Marion Cotillard among the party of 15, ordered shrimp cocktails and Depp's favorite, Clams Casino -- clams baked with garlic, pepper and cheese.

"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 said. "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. "

So once again, we learn that Johnny Depp is actually a very down-to-earth guy -- whose rich and famous and owns a private island and gives $4,000 tips. Not that "Mo" the waiter, as Johnny calls him, is upset by that.

"Obviously, I was delighted with his tip but he has always been very generous every time that he has visited us here at Gibsons," Shekhani said. "When the party left around 2.30am he smiled and told me that he would return – they were a great group of people.” We're betting there will be some fighting over who gets that table next time.
