Johnny Depp shares a sweet father-daughter story on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow is one of his most beloved roles, and the development of his wonderful, drunkard pirate character was aided by … Barbie dolls?


Johnny Depp was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday and shared a really sweet anecdote about how he used to test his characters on his daughter when they played Barbies together. Depp talked about how he tested both Captain Jack and Willy Wonka on Lily-Rose Depp until she asked him to please play normal Barbies. Geez, Dad, you're so embarrassing.
