It seems that you can ask Johnny Depp almost anything and he will give an interesting answer. 

Ellen DeGeneres put that to the test on Friday when she challenged him to a game of "True or False," and was highly amused by his replies.

Among the curious questions was whether he likes playing with Barbie dolls, which he admitted, saying it was a something he got into when his daughter, Lily-Rose, was a child and it was a hard habit to break. "You can smoke pot with Babies," he claimed.

When asked if he sleeps in the nude, "Technically I've slept in alleys, but not always in the nude," Depp quipped in reply.

The actor went on to reveal that he "once dreamed of being the first white Harlem Globetrotter," but admitted that he didn't know how to play basketball. 

He also professed to an interest in painting elephants. "I paint like a toddler, I love elephants and like the shape of them," he told Ellen, claiming he had done "about 11" so far and promising to give her one.

Also in the interview, the pair of mega-stars talked about turning 50 (Depp reached the milestone last June and Ellen is now 56). 

"Don't you just think you're getting better and better?" asked DeGeneres, to which Depp admitted: "Calmer, more calm -- not less weirdness, but less rage maybe. Less drama.
