Apparently Johnny Depp channels Captain Jack Sparrow in real life too, only without the… umm… Keith Richards-esque edge. The Sun says he reportedly saved his friend from a mugger! Depp was in a recording studio in LA after laying down a guitar solo for a new Babybird track (he’s a big fan of the band). He was leaving when he spotted his friend, Stephen Jones (Babybird’s lead singer) being threatened by a man with a broken bottle.
A source told The Sun, “Johnny looked him straight in the eyes and told him to back off.” And guess what – he did! “He looked at Johnny and said, ‘I ain’t stealing from Captain Jack’ and put the bottle down. Johnny gave him a few bucks and told him to straighten up his life.”
Bravo, Johnny, bravo. We’re swooning.
