Johnny is nominated for Best Actor for his role in Finding Neverland , a heart-warming film about the life of J.M. Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan. Johnny plays Barrie, who, in desperate need of inspiration, finds magic in a chance encounter with a widowed mother and her four young boys. It is his second Oscar® nomination—he was nominated last year for his role in Pirates of the Carribean !
When Oprah asked Johnny what legacy he wanted to leave behind when he leaves this earth, Johnny went reaching for a glass of wine!
"Wow. Boy, oh, I don't know," Johnny said. "I mean, I just hope that people like the stuff I did. Hope the movies stick around and people like it…that [the movies make] them happy."
