Personal Quote:

[on replaying the role of "Barbossa" to Johnny Depp's "Captain Jack Sparrow"] It's become an imaginative metaphor for me and Johnny as actors. It feels like we've been married for a long time and there are certain things that are never going to resolve themselves within the marriage. It's an interesting way for us to find the context for this kind of constant spat. See more »
