Hollywood actor Johnny Depp is so sword-happy from his time spent making Pirates Of The Caribbean: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL he recently treated hotel guests to an impromptu sword fight.

Depp, who is currently shooting The Libertine alongside co-star SAMANTHA MORTON, grabbed an old sword off a bar room wall at the NOEL ARMS hotel in Gloucestershire, England, before jokingly chasing the chef round for making "amazing" pudding.

A source at the hotel says, "Depp's always in our upstairs bar with different people having a laugh.

"He was drinking with Samantha Morton, (British comedian) Johnny Vegas and some off-duty staff.

"At about two in the morning they'd finished off two bottles of port and 14 bottles of wine between five of them.

"Then Johnny got this look in his eye and started yelling that he had to kill the chef for making such amazing sticky toffee pudding and custard.

"He had it for three days on the trot and says it's the most delicious thing he's ever eaten."
