Depp jokes about Pirates sex change

Johnny Depp has said there'll be no major changes to Captain Jack

Johnny Depp has said there'll be no major changes to his swashbuckling alter-ego Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides - but joked that he'd had a sex change.

The Golden Globe-nominated actor will reprise his role as the eyeliner-loving pirate in the forthcoming fourth instalment, which also stars Penelope Cruz.

"Well there was a sex change," he told Collider, before adding: "I honestly think old Captain Jack found himself a long time ago. I don't think he can't go any further, I think he's hit a wall as it were."

Johnny gushed about reuniting with Penelope, with whom he starred in Blow.

"She's a serious force to be reckoned with, Penelope. We did a film together years ago called Blow, which was wonderful," he continued.

"She's really a treat, she's a heavy hitter. You can throw all kinds of stuff out there into the atmosphere and she'll snatch up something and throw a curve ball back at you. It's very stimulating, she's someone I adore, one of my best friends, so yeah it's been great having her."

The 47-year-old has enjoyed filming in Greenwich.

"It's been a gas, I mean there's not a bad thing you can say about it," he said.

"Greenwich is beautiful, Greenwich is gorgeous. You know the thing about filming in Greenwich for me was basically all stunts..."

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, directed by Nine's Rob Marshall, is scheduled for release in May.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
