Chicago, June 24 (IANS) Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp shocked restaurant staff in Chicago by leaving a mammoth tip of $4,000.

Sekhani, Chicago Sun Times reported.
“Depp hosted a party of 15 people, including Mann and Cotillard, and the tip was split 12 ways. Depp is the finest of all the stars I have ever waited on,” Sekhani said.
