Depp Threatened To Quit Pirates Of The Caribbean

Johnny Depp threatened to quit hit movie Pirates Of The Caribbean: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL because of interfering film bosses.

The hunky star plays wayward pirate CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW in the blockbuster, and went to the trouble of having genuine gold teeth fitted in his mouth, having his hair braided and growing a beard in order to braid that too - but bosses were unimpressed with his characterisation.

The frustrated husband of French star Vanessa Paradis grumbles, "I had two more gold teeth, and there were a few that wanted them gone - in fact wanted them all gone, and they wanted the braids and my beard gone.

"I basically said, 'Look, I respect you guys. I'll compromise to some degree, which means I'll take two teeth out. But anything beyond that I feel is compromising the integrity of the character. I'm not willing to do that.

"'You gotta trust me. You gotta let me do what you hired me to do, and if you're not happy with doing that then you gotta replace me.'"
