Johnny Depp's Keith Richards Pirate Tale
"It was very strange initially, you know, when the character's main ingredients came up," he told NME.com at the London premiere for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. "I was a little worried at what Keith Richards was gonna think. I didn't fear Pepe Le Pew but I was a little worried about Keith. Because for a good portion of the time I was spending with him, I was sponging as much of him as I possibly could for the character. And when he found out what I'd been doing, it could've gone either way, but he was very nice about it, like 'I had no idea mate!' He was very sweet about it."
Of course, Richards went on to join Depp in future Pirates installments, appearing as Jack's dad, Captain Teague. The guitarist appears in the new film as well. "To be able to then bring him into the fold and bring him into the film and do scenes with him was amazing," Depp said. "It's one of those things you know has been seared into your brain and will never leave. It's one of those moments: 'I'm really lucky to be here at this moment, and I'm really lucky that I'm aware that I'm lucky." more on this story
