19 Famous People Who Have Been Given a Book of Mormon


Johnny Depp

While Johnny Depp was at the town hall of Creede, Colorado, signing autographs after filming sections of The Lone Ranger, two missionaries walked in: Elder Trudo and Elder Wilde.

The two were attending the event with their branch mission leader, Lyle Tuoti, on June 22, 2012, when Johnny Depp asked the group of missionaries about their name tags.

"Elder Wilde asked Depp if he would accept a Book of Mormon. He said, 'Sure,' and then autographed another one they had as well," Tyanya Mortensen Smith says, who is a member of the Del Norte branch in Creede and who attended the event.

Depp was patient and friendly throughout the event, telling the missionaries, "Thanks for the book, man," according to Smith.
