Johnny Depp scared of Pirates bugs

JOHNNY Depp was scared of bugs when he filmed 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides'.

The 47-year-old - who plays Captain Jack Sparrow in the Disney film franchise - shot several jungle scenes in Hawaii, and although his Australian co-star Geoffrey Rush was comfortable with the assorted creepy crawlies, Johnny approached them with caution.

Speaking on British breakfast TV show 'Lorraine', he said: "There were some strange noises in the jungle, Geoffrey comes from Australia - everything there is poisonous, everything, even the beer at times. So yes, there were some really strange creatures out there in the wilds of Hawaii. Things with like a million legs and pinchers and stuff like that. I had some trepidation. I'm still scared."

Meanwhile, Johnny has revealed he didn't give his co-star Penelope Cruz much baby advice on set, except promising her parenthood would be the "best ride of her life".

Penelope and her husband Javier Bardem became parents to son Leo in January and although the 37-year-old actress was pregnant throughout filming last year, father-of-two Johnny mainly kept his own experiences to himself.

The Hollywood heartthrob - who raises daughter Lily-Rose, 11, and eight-year-old son Jack, with his long-term partner Vanessa Paradis - revealed: "The funny thing is when Vanessa and I were expecting our first people were giving us all kinds of advice saying it was gonna be this and it was gonna be that but nothing stands up to what you truly experience when your first kid arrives so all I could tell her was, 'Just understand that this is going to be the best ride of your life.'
