Johnny Depp is currently filming the latest installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise in Buckinghamshire, and is reported to have spent $60,000 of his own money to buy jackets for the crew for filming during an unexpected cold wave. While the waterproof jackets may not have been a sensation in the fashion industry, the move made a hero of Depp to the 500 people present on the set.
This latest bit of celebrity news and gossip cements Depp’s image as an all-around good guy as well as perennial Hollywood heartthrob. The new movie is the fourth in the wildly popular Pirates franchise. Earlier this month, Depp surprised students at the Meridian Primary School in south London by showing up dressed as the iconic Captain Jack Sparrow, delighting students and teachers alike.
