Johnny Depp Covers EW's 2011 Preview Issue

Johnny Depp covers Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue as his Pirates of the Caribbean character, Captain Jack Sparrow!

On whether he’s ready to say goodbye to Jack: “I’m never tired of the character. I don’t look forward to the day when I have to say goodbye to him.”

On going back to basics with On Stranger Tides:“Things got very mathematical, very subplotty, on the last movie because there were a lot of things that needed to be resolved with the characters. I wanted to make a film that was more like the first one, that was more character-driven.”

On the possibility of another Pirates movie: “As long as we can put all the puzzle pieces together, I would most definitely consider it. I always feel that with Captain Jack, you can chuck him into any situation and have a ball with it.”

You can pick up Entertainment Weekly on newsstands beginning tomorrow (January 14)! For more from Johnny, visit

  • JJ (the person)

    I love Pirates of Caribbean, but I hope Disney remembers Aida movie project!

  • Gita

    @JJ (the person): Yeah! Broadway’s Aida was so great, a movie would be awesome!

  • SarahNL

    I love him as Captain Jack Sparrows. So YES, please make more pirates movies! He is the best thing about pirates anyway, so I don’t care that Keira and Orlando Bloom aren’t in the next pirates of the caribbean movie.

  • J

    I like Captain Jack Sparrow, but no more, PLZ!

  • Frenchie

    Ugh, he’ll never outgrow this pirate schtick. I’m over the POTC films. All but the first one sukkk bad. Keira and Orlando are very smart.

  • Jokergurl

    WHY IS THE RUM GONE! Love Jack Sparrow, Depp is right though the last movie had no plot really. As long as Johnny is playing Jack no matter who’s in it with him, I will go see it. Penelope Cruz is in this one, I thought they had great chemistry in Blow years back and Geoffrey Rush is in it as well so it Keith Richards, who would pass up Keith as a pirate? Not me.

  • M

    the first Pirates rocked big time and unless they miraculously managed to make this 4th installment as ood as the first film they are losers.

  • Showing his age

    Johnny has finally started to show his age – and his face looks bloated to me. Guess all the drinking and life-long smoking have finally caught up with him. Too bad. He used to be one of the sexiest men in Hollywood.

  • Mejay

    I second that #1, I hate to say it but Johnny has kinda lost it. What happened to that guy who was so great in the 90′s (and late 80s, and early 2000s)? I ll always have a soft spot for him but it’s just not the same.

  • layla

    # 21 and #22 I agree with you! Johnny is much changed in the last years, only 2 years ago he had his usually angular face with his fantastic cheek bones! now his face looks often bloated and not so angular…I think he uses botox too! sin…beacuse he was the most beautiful man in the world! no one can be beautiful as Johnny was until two years ago!
