Best Wish Fulfillment
Keisha Castle-Hughes
When Billy Bush — the cohost of ABC’s preshow — asked ”Whale Rider” Oscar nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes which actor she most wanted to meet at the Oscars, the 13-year-old New Zealander replied, ”Johnny Depp — because he’s a stud.” So, just before curtain time, Bush walked her over to the Best Actor nominee’s seat and made her dream come true. Depp gently told his fan, ”I think you’re just amazing.” No wonder everyone’s in love with this guy.
