Spy Kids director Robert Rodriguez is taking all the credit for JOHNNY DEPP's conversion to action movie star.

The filmmaker was surprised to see Depp getting so involved during filming of his new movie Once Upon A Time In Mexico.

Robert says, "I asked him, 'I didn't think you liked to do action.' He said, 'You converted me,' and after that took on Pirates Of The Caribbean and had so much fun."
