Townsville Bulletin - - The Goss -

JOHNNY Depp, pic­tured, has been crowned ‘‘ hat per­son of the year’’, beat­ing out other celebrity hat-wear­ers in­clud­ing Aus­tralian ac­tor Hugh Jack­man and US s i nger Gwen Ste­fani, the US Head­wear As­so­ci­a­tion an­nounced.

Nearly four in 10 vis­i­tors to the Head­wear As­so­ci­a­tion’s web­site voted in the an­nual poll for Pi­rates of the Caribbean star Depp and his wide-brimmed fe­do­ras, help­ing him to roundly beat Ste­fani and Jack­man who gar­nered 17 per cent and 16 per cent of votes cast, re­spec­tively.

He takes over from last year’s ‘‘ hat per­son of the year’’, fel­low ac­tor Brad Pitt, who helped make the news­boy cap fash­ion­able.
