Johnny Depp recently said that he only does silly expensive movies for the sake of his children, but what happens when his kids, Lily-Rose and Jack, get sick of one of his films?
“Captain Jack doesn’t do it for them anymore. They’re so used to him now. I have to make them laugh with new characters.
“Some of the characters I’ve done in the past were born literally out of playing Barbie with my daughter. And if a new character works, I think, ‘OK, I may put him in a drawer and use him again later.’ ”
Even if his kids aren’t amused by Captain Jack any longer, Depp likes to pull some jokes on other attentive children. ”Little kids like to hear Captain Jack. But what really freaks them out is when you go from Jack to Willy Wonka. Suddenly they’re like, ‘I’m not sure about this guy.’ ”
Do you think this is the last of Captain Jack Sparrow or are there more sequels in the mix?
