Captain Jack isn’t such a bad pirate. Johnny Depp has been making unannounced visits to children's hospitals dressed in his Captain Jack Sparrow costume.

Johnny Depp keeps the costume from “Pirates of the Caribbean” with him when he travel so he can pop into children’s hospitals on a moment’s notice when he’s in the area, according to Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer of the popular family franchise movie that was based on a Disneyworld ride.

Jerry Bruckheimer told the 'Produced By' Conference audience, "He knows he is a very fortunate person and he wants to give back."

Johnny Depp, 50, played the loveable but mischievous pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow, in four blockbuster films. The rum-soaked, dreadlocked seafarer is loved by Johnny's younger fans.

In 2010, the philanthropic actor accepted an invitation Beatrice Delap, a nine year old girl, to appear at her school in London after she learned that Depp was filming “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” at the Old Royal Naval College, which was nearby. The young fan wrote Johnny a letter asking him to visit Meridian Primary School in Greenwich. Depp showed up at a school assembly decked out in his pirate garb.

Beatrice said: "It was the most exciting school day ever. I had the idea to write the letter last week after me and a friend went to see the film set. Pat from the school office delivered it. Yesterday the school called us in for a special assembly at the end of the day. They told us there had been a couple of incidents in the playground. Then Johnny Depp walked in dressed as Captain Jack. There were gasps and screams. He pulled the letter out of his pocket and said he was going to frame it. Then he called me down and gave me a hug."

There'll be no living with him now.
