Johnny Depp takes a boat to work

2010-10-01 09:03

The Hollywood star has leased a yacht to sail down the River Thames in London so he can get to the set of his new movie, Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides on time.

He boards the luxury vessel nicknamed The Jolly Roger from Battersea before winding his way up the waterway to Greenwich, where he is reprising his role of Captain Jack Sparrow in the fourth instalment of the Disney franchise.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Johnny chose to charter a boat for the week because it's the easiest and quickest way to get there.

"He's been flying in from his home in France some mornings and hopping on the yacht at Battersea.

“He's been enjoying the views from the water."

Depp's newfound love of water comes from his joy at playing character Captain Jack Sparrow in the movie series.

The 46-year-old star, who is reportedly earning £21m to appear in the sequel, admits the eccentric seafarer has stolen a place in his heart.

Speaking about the role, he said: "Sometimes you fall in love with who you're playing. As filming winds down, you hear the clock ticking because you know you're going to leave your character behind and a kind of odd separation anxiety kicks in. You get irritable and just sort of melancholy."
