A Portly Johnny Depp Visits Jimmy Kimmel Live, Talks Barbies Acting Technique
Depp was dressed like typical Depp, underneath a dark-grey vest, he wore a beige, striped shirt left open at the collar to show off an extensive collection of necklaces.
During his appearance on the show, Depp explained how his daughter Lily-Rose Depp helped him develop many of his eccentric characters—and it involves barbies.
“We played a lot of Barbies, my daughter and I,” he said. This imaginative back and forth with Lily-Rose, now 15, helped him to figure out the voices of some of the most iconic characters he’s ever played, including Willy Wonka and Pirates of the Caribbean’s Jack Sparrow.
Jimmy told the actor, currently engaged to Amber Heard, that if playing with dolls is “the testing ground” for his great roles, he “might have to have another kid!”
But Johnny wasn’t so sure about that. Depp laughed, “Well, I’ve got a lot of Barbies in storage!”
