(User Submitted) – Maybe pirates aren't as bad as they have been painted to be. Teachers and schoolkids alike were shocked when Johnny Depp, in full costume and character as Jack Sparrow, appeared in their London classroom yesterday. It turns out that 9-year-old Beatrice Delap had written recently to the actor, saying, "We are a bunch of budding young pirates and we're having trouble mutinying against the teachers!"

Depp, who is in town to film the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean, entertained the children for 15 minutes, suggesting that they take over the school and eat all the candy. It's not the first time that Depp has done such a goodwill deed. On a separate occasion two years ago he donated a million dollars to a hospital after appearing in character and reading the children stories.
