Johnny Depp spent Valentine's Day at the premiere of his latest film Rango.
The star, who voices a chameleon in the computer-animated comedy, said he was inspired to join the cast because of his love of reptiles.
"I like lizards" he revealed at the Los Angeles premiere.
Extra security had to be drafted in to stop barriers from being pushed over as hundreds of fans tried to get autographs and photos of the superstar.
In the film, Johnny plays a chameleon (called Rango) who aspires to be a swashbuckling hero and ends up playing the role in order to protect a town that's being plagued by bandits.
In keeping with the film's Western story, Johnny had a hint of the cowboy in his look at the premiere. He casually walked the red carpet in a brown leather jacket and jeans with his scruffy dark curls tucked underneath a hat.
The film is helmed by Pirates Of The Caribbean director Gore Verbinski and also stars Isla Fisher.
