Let Johnny Depp Explain the Last Two Pirates Movies

Even though he keeps making them, Johnny Depp is a little bit confused by the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels. "They had to invent a trilogy out of nowhere," he candidly tells EW about the last two movies. "It was plot driven and complicated. I remember talking to [director Gore Verbinski] at certain points during production of 2 or 3, and saying: 'I don't really know what this means.' He said, 'Neither do I, but let's just shoot it.' This guy is this guy's dad, and this guy was in love with this broad. It was like, 'What?'" If those movies eventually made sense in postproduction, Depp admits that he wouldn't know it: "I did see the first one. I have not seen the second one or the third one." [Pop Watch/EW]
