Why Does Johnny Depp Always Keep His Captain Jack Costume Handy?!

The last Pirates of the Caribbean film came out in 2011, and the next isn’t rumored until 2015, yet Johnny Depp still carries his Captain Jack Sparrow costume around with him at all times. Don’t worry, this isn’t some weird, pirate fetish…the 50-year-old actor has a legitimate reason for wanting to keep the get-up handy!

While promoting his new movie The Lone Ranger, Johnny told reporters that whenever he visits sick kids in the hospital, he likes to wear the costume to cheer them up. Because he doesn’t always know when these opportunities will arise, he makes sure to always take the costume with him during his travels, just in case something comes up.

What a guy! Check out the video below for more details on Johnny’s costume-toting:
