Johnny Depp has a special relationship with actor couple Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz -- he has kissed them both.
“I have been friends with Javier for the longest time. I have kissed him on the mouth and even his wife (Penelope Cruz),” Depp joked about his co-star of Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge.
“But seriously, I would say that he has played the character with so much rage and yet made it so touching. It is wonderful and a great gift to work with such a cast,” Depp, 53, told reporters during a press conference of the film in Shanghai.
The Hollywood star has previously worked with Bardem on Before Night Falls, about gay Cuban poet Reinaldo Arenas while Cruz played Angelica, Captain Jack Sparrow’s former love interest in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Hollywood loves to cast Bardem, an acting powerhouse, in negative roles thanks to his impressive and award-winning turns in No Country for Old Men and James Bond movie Skyfall.
Directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, the Disney film also stars Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, Kevin McNally and Orlando Bloom. It releases on May 26.
