Johnny Depp admits to being a Honey Boo Boo fan, even though it scares him a little bit. “I’m a little frightened of the show,” he revealed on Extra while promoting The Lone Ranger. “That’s the thing… they’re probably great people, but there are bits that happen that just I am mesmerized by.” This wasn’t just a one-time Honey Boo Boo mention, Depp also told The Rolling Stone that he’s a “Honey Boo Boo man.”
Johnny’s not alone in his HBB addiction, below are more high profile celebs who can’t get enough of Alana Thompson, Mama June, Sugar Bear, and the rest of this eccentric Georgia family.

Rosie O’Donnell: Rosie was so impressed with this family that she wanted to buy them a new house. “I think that little girl, Honey Boo Boo, she is like Shirley Temple,” O’Donnell told People. “She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years.”
Tina Fey: While writing the last season of 30 Rock, Tina and her staff couldn’t get enough Honey Boo Boo. “[E]very day at lunch our writers take a little break and watch a TV show and most times it’s ‘Honey Boo Boo’ or ‘Breaking Amish’ …” she said.

Jwoww: Jenni “Jwoww” Farley told HuffPost TV “I would love to meet her. I’ve been a fan of hers since ‘Toddlers & Tiaras.’ I just think that her family is amazing. The mom is like the ultimate mom and they have a lifestyle like ours — it’s completely different, only some people get it, but at the end of the day, we’re all a huge, loving family and same with her family. Her mother is all about her kids and just loves them and even though they’re different and act crazy like we do, they only have love for the world. So I wish them the best and I hope they’re very successful because they deserve it. They are very entertaining.”
Jennifer Lawrence: Jennifer is such a Honey Boo Boo fan that she got into a car accident because she thought she drove by Honey Boo Boo.
