Johnny Depp is one of the few people in Hollywood that you never ever hear anything bad about in any way. He's talented, he's humble, he works hard, and he does things like tip waiters $4,000.
So what did Mr. Wonderful do this time? Oh nothing. Just showed up unannounced in a little girls classroom, in full character as Capt. Jack Sparrow, after she wrote him a letter asking for help staging a 'mutiny' against the teachers. The Daily Mail says...
The school was told just ten minutes before that Depp would be arriving and two blacked-out cars swept through the school gates.
An onlooker said she heard the most 'incredible screams of joy' as the actor, in full make-up, then entered the school.
In an interview on London Tonight after the visit, Beatrice revealed what she had written in the letter to the star - or rather his salty seadog alter ego.
She said: 'Captain Jack Sparrow, At Meridian Primary School, we are a bunch of budding young pirates and we were having a bit of trouble mutiny-ing against the teachers, and we'd love if you could come and help.
'Beatrice Delap, aged nine, a budding pirate.'
She said that she was then asked by the star to make herself known from the assembled pupils once he arrived, and gave her a cuddle.
Beatrice marvelled: 'He gave me a hug and he said, "Maybe we shouldn't mutiny today 'cos there are police outside monitoring me."'
When his daughter was sick in 2007, with a rather serious blood disease after stepping on a rusty nail, Depp would go to the hospital as Sparrow, in full character then too, and read books to groups of kids for hours at a time. And after she recovered, he went back to the hospital, completely unannounced, and gave them 2 million dollars.
In other words, this guy is a real jerk. He needs to knock this shit off before every girl on earth starts thinking their boyfriend should be like Johnny Depp. I need a good Chris Brown story right now to balance things out. Maybe I don't go read stories to sick children, but I didn't punch a girl in the face 40 times either, so overall, if you look at the big picture, I think I'm still doin ok.
