Geoffrey Rush came on stage to present the Screen Icon award to Johnny Depp at the 2011 L'Oreal Paris National Movie Awards held on May 12th.
Rush talks about Johnny saying, "Johnny Depp is so cool. He can come to rehearsal in a crazed blouse and a bit of mismatched jewelery and he can look hip - I would look like my mother."
Depp's other Pirates co-star, Keith Richards, recorded a special tribute message.
In the message, which is heard with footage of Johnny's most famous movies, Richards said, "There ain't another movie star who comes close to this guy. And to think that he didn't even start off as an actor first of all. That's my boy."
And, as Depp was unable to attend because he is traveling to promote the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, he recorded a message of thanks for viewers, calling the award a "sublime honor".
Geoffrey Rush accepted the award on Johnny's behalf.
