Depp Vetoed Pirates Of The Caribbean Toothpaste

Actor JOHNNY DEPP used his star power to prevent movie bosses from launching a Pirates Of The Caribbean tie-in toothpaste - because his character has awful teeth in the films. Depp, who plays Captain Jack Sparrow for a third time in the upcoming Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End, is amazed by how imaginative the advertising for blockbuster movies can be. He says, "There were only a couple of things that I thought, 'Now we're stepping over the line.' "I drew the line at hygiene products. It just seemed wrong. Captain Jack toothpaste, for example. How can a guy with gold teeth sell toothpaste? It's like a bald man selling shampoo. "And cold cuts would be weird - Captain Jack hot dogs, bologna, things like that."

I don't blame him one bit. They're definitely crossing the line with this one! How ridiculous. They should just stick to toys, fun stuff. Toothpaste is not fun!

That's my man. Johnny always shows class and character. Even though he's the hottest guy ever and the highest-paid actor in the world, he still sticks to his guns when his values are at stake. I say "Go Johnny---you use that power in the right way"-----I'll ALWAYS love you for your own true self!!!!!!
