Johnny Depp at Cry Baby Reunion at the Johnny Ramone Cemetery Tribute (Photos)


There was a very special and star-studded event over the weekend in a cemetery in Los Angeles. No, it wasn’t a funeral — it was a celebration of film and the late Johnny Ramone of the legendary band The Ramones!

This was the 9th annual tribute to Johnny Ramone, which took place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery by the eight foot tall bronze statue of the punk icon, who died of prostate cancer in 2004. This annual event also paid tribute to John Waters’ cult classic Cry Baby. The film, as well as various pieces of Ramones live footage, were projected on the wall of a nearby mausoleum. And as a special treat, the stars of the film reunited for a panel discussion hosted by John Waters.

Traci Lords, James Intveld, Ricki Lake, and Johnny Depp came out for the event to talk about the film. Cry Baby played a pivotal role in the lives of its stars. It was the first leading film role for Johnny Depp after starring on 21 Jump Street, was the first big role for Ricki Lake, and was Traci Lords’ first foray in a non-racy role.
