Johnny Depp Surprises Young Pirates (VIDEO)

Johnny Depp Surprises Young Pirates (VIDEO)-photo

As if Johnny Depp wasn't already considered the coolest movie star in the biz, it's now official. While in the midst of filming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in the UK, he answered a young fan's letter on Thursday by appearing at her London elementary school in full Jack Sparrow dress! Can you say best show and tell ever?

According to The Daily Mail, Johnny popped up at Meridian Primary School after 9-year-old Beatrice Dunlap wrote Captain Jack Sparrow saying she and her school full of "young pirates" needed help staging a mutiny against their teachers.

While Johnny makes Bea's life by singling her out, he advises against a mutiny and advocates for brushing one's teeth in the heart-warming video below:

    Johnny, What a class act you are. You can come to my school any time :)

  • LD

    Well done! It's about time all these other over-blown "celebs" took their cue from Mr. Depp...we are one large human family,each one deserving of respect and dignity. His humility and caring are a wonderful example that more should take up!

  • Scott

    Not only is Johnny Depp talented as an actor and the most versitile actor the world has seen but he has a heart of gold as well. He is one of a kind and a great roll model for kids and adults as well. Keep up the fine work Johnny.

  • Kookaburra58

    LOL - kind of met him when I was in London I passed him in the street , was sooo excited !

  • K.Marlowe

    Loved it! Johnny, we teachers at my elementary school might consider a mutiny if you will be our "Captain"!

  • LoveDepp

    So wonderful to hear about a small gesture a great actor has done towards making a happy moment in a child's life. And it doesn't hurt that he is so freakin' cute!


    I am wondering why this young man has never received an academy award. He is brilliant on screen as well and splended off screen. He has such depth as a person and as such, is much admired. Thanks Mr. Depp...for your being you.

  • Earthmother

    We need more actors/people like Johnny Depp.

  • Geeg

    Way to go!!!!!! Thanks for being a regular guy and making a whole school full of students happy. I believe that all "stars" need to pay back to the community. Thank you.

    I think Johnny Depp is just precious. To take time out of his busy schedule to visit this classroom and deliver a valuable message...all the while, entertaining with his humorous character, Capn.

  • Bonnie Stewart

    I think it was great for Johnny Depp to take time out of his busy schedule to make this surprise appearance for the children. It was wonerful of him to even go all out and put on his Captain Jack costume for them as well, and to tell them the importance of brushing their teeth. Bravo Johnny!!!

Thank you for being such a talented actor, and more importantly, for being such a class act, and having a truly wonderful heart!
