The actor, who plays Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates Of The Caribbean films, said he prefers being in front of the camera than behind it.

He said: "I don't like it when things make sense. I prefer it if they don't. If I made a film it wouldn't make any sense and nobody would see it.

The actor went on: "Maybe I'll just make little films at home with my phone, never to be released."

But Johnny has more Pirates to be getting on with as talks are already under way about a fifth instalment. Beyond that, who knows.

He said: "I think they could wheel me in as Captain Jack while my dreadlocks get tangled in the wheels of the chair.

"With a character like Captain Jack you feel like you can just continue because if there's any potential for madness and absurdity, the possibilities are endless."

:: Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is in cinemas now.
