In case you’ve missed the news, Johnny Depp is still a class act and a really good guy. As you may know, Johnny has been known to sneak into hospitals in full Captain Jack Sparrow costume and visit the sick kids.
Depp has been in Queensland, Australia filming the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Dead Men Tell No Tales and he insisted on a visit with the kids at the hospital.
At the hospital, Depp delighted kids like Max Bennett, a seven-year-old with transverse myelitis. Bennett was in a medically induced coma just a few weeks ago.
“It was really beautiful. Everyone kept on trying to move [Depp] on, but he kept on coming back,” Rachel Bennett, Max’s mother, told ABC Australia. “He came on the condition that he wasn’t pushed along and crowded by adults and he could spend as much time as he wanted with the kids.”
Like a true pirate, Depp left behind some booty for his friends – he gave Max golden coins. But the actor’s friendly antics, not his loot, were the highlight of the visit for Max. “He tied a knot in his hair to make a beard,” Max said. “That was my favorite part.”
Can someone give this guy a medal already – just for being so awesome?
