Johnny Depp - Johnny Depp Paints Keith Richards Portrait

Johnny Depp has an oil painting of Keith Richards surrounded by cigarette papers.

The 48-year-old actor has amassed a huge collection of artwork and a collection of rare manuscripts in his mansion in Hertfordshire, East England - including three paintings of the Rolling Stone legend he created himself, one of which is surrounded by Rizla rolling papers - and even gave one book to Bruce Robinson, the director of his new film 'The Rum Diary'.

He revealed to The Sun newspaper: "I don't know how Johnny gets everything done. With the books, it isn't just a first edition of T. S. Eliot, it's the manuscript. He showed me the first edition of 'Les Fleurs Du Mal' inscribed by Baudelaire. I couldn't believe it. Then when I got home, I found Johnny had slipped it in my suitcase."

Johnny has long had a close relationship with the 67-year-old rocker - who plays his father in two 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films - and has previously revealed he loves getting drunk with him.

He said: "He's a fascinating man, you know. I've known him for a long time. To get periods on set where it's just him and me hanging out, sitting around and yakking about music, movies whatever, was a real pleasure.

"I'm a wine man and I do like a good glass of red. So I would have my glass of wine and Keith would have his usual.

"I've no idea what it is, because it looks like nuclear waste and it's a combination only he would know."
