Johnny Depp Reveals Hollywood Didn’t Like His Jack Sparrow Style in Pirates of the Caribbean
According to Digital Spy, Depp once said: “I went through 20 years of what the industry basically described as failures. For 20 years I was defined as box office poison,” However this changed when Johnny Depp got the role of Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Depp said: “I didn’t change anything in terms of my process, I didn’t change a thing. But that little film Pirates of the Caribbean came round and I thought, yeah, it’ll be fun to play a pirate for my kiddies,”
Depp then talked about his style of Jack Sparrow and the fact that it nearly got him fired. “I created the character the same way I created all the other ones and I nearly got fired, and thank God they didn’t. It changed my life. I’m hyper, super-thankful that radical turn happened, but it’s not like I went out of my way to make it happen,”. However, eventually, the Pirates films became blockbuster hits and Johnny Depp became a megastar. Depp’s style of Captain Jack Sparrow was much liked by fans.
In an earlier interview with the Guardian, Depp blasted producers for their money-mindedness. He said: “Nobody puts money into a film because they love art, they do it because they want a return on their money, so it’s kind of dirty,” What do you think about Johnny Depp’s comments?
