Maybe Jack Sparrow isn’t such a bad pirate after all.

Johnny Depp recently took some time away from shooting the the next “Pirates of the Caribbean” to visit the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, Australia.

Dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow, Depp and actor Stephen Graham visited with the children and their families for over three hours.

“Now, if there’s other people in it, why do you call it a selfie?” Depp asked one child, while posing for a picture.

The special meet-and-greet was put together by the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” hits theaters July 7, 2017.

    What a remarkable thing he did to help those sick people; I’m so happy.

    Who is he kidding, it’s a stunt to promote the new movie.

    • Kate says:

      Who ARE YOU kidding? You don’t know what you’re talking about. He doesn’t have a new movie to promote and it was a surprise visit, he did not want the media to know about it and the footage is captured by a show created by the hospital for the kids. It’s not “stunt”, what other celebrities like Chris Pratt do when they have a new movie out is publicity stunts. Depp on the other hand is a very genuinely sweet man who always visits sick children’s hospitals secretly.

      You mean the movie that doesn’t come out for another TWO YEARS? A simple Google search would’ve led you to learn that he travels with the costume so he can surprise kids at hospitals. He does this all the time.
