Johnny Depp seems nice

Yesterday in London, Johnny Depp took time off his busy schedule of shooting Pirates of the Caribbean 4 to visit the Meridian Primary School dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow to help a nine-year-old stage a mutiny against the teachers. The nine-year-old, Beatrice Delap, had written Depp:

‘Captain Jack Sparrow, At Meridian Primary School, we are a bunch of budding young pirates and we were having a bit of trouble mutiny-ing against the teachers, and we’d love if you could come and help.

‘Beatrice Delap, aged nine, a budding pirate.’

Instead of throwing it in the trash like other celebrities would have, Depp decided to pay the girl a visit. According to the Daily Mail:

The school was told just ten minutes before that Depp would be arriving and two blacked-out cars swept through the school gates.

An onlooker said she heard the most ‘incredible screams of joy’ as the actor, in full make-up, then entered the school.

She [Beatrice] said that she was then asked by the star to make herself known from the assembled pupils once he arrived, and gave her a cuddle.

Beatrice marvelled: ‘He gave me a hug and he said, “Maybe we shouldn’t mutiny today ‘cos there are police outside monitoring me.”‘

Oh, sure. When Johnny Depp dresses up like Captain Jack Sparrow to visit a kid in school, he’s a hero and gets support from the local cops but when I do this I’m ordered to register on a poorly designed website by some stupid judge. C’mon, judge. I really did have candy in the van.
