Hollywood hottie Johnny Depp’s portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy may have mesmerised millions of cinema-goers, but has failed in his own home.

Depp recently revealed that his two children - Lily-Rose, seven; and Jack, five, still prefer Spiderman over Captain Jack Sparrow.

"I'd get in and say (in Jack Sparrow's voice) 'All right kids, everything all right?' And they'd say, 'Dad, come on, I'm watching Spider-Man.' Oh man, Spider-Man. My boy has gone into that full-on superhero phase. But I refuse to wear the tights,” Contactmusic quoted Depp, as saying.

Meanwhile Depp earlier stated that he considers his family to be his greatest treasure, for he believes that he became a calm, happy, and loving person only after becoming father.

The actor says that it was the birth of his daughter Lily-Rose that caused a sea change in his attitude towards life, and turned him into the kind of man he always wanted to be.

"(It) was not only the greatest thing that’s ever happened - it's the only thing that's ever happened to me," he said.
