Everyone loves Johnny’s ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ character except for two important people… his kids! But why?

According to, Johnny Depp’s two kids — 12-year-old Lily-Rose and 9-year-old Jack — no longer laugh at the beloved pirate character!

“Captain Jack doesn’t do it for them anymore,” he said. “They’re so used to him now. I have to make them laugh with new characters.”

And he revealed a surprising source of inspiration for his characters! “Some of the characters I’ve done in the past were born literally out of playing Barbie with my daughter,” he said. “And if a new character works, I think, ‘OK, I may put him in a drawer and use him again later.”

Who knew Johnny used Lily-Rose’s stamp of approval so much!?! But luckily other kids still love Captain Jack. “Little kids like to hear Captain Jack,” he said. “But what really freaks them out is when you go from Jack to Willy Wonka. Suddenly they’re like, ‘I’m not sure about this guy,'” he laughed.
