"I think that the people who understand or know or get or touched... he's so ignorant that he makes you laugh. If they're moved by Captain Jack Sparrow in any way I don't need a company to do that. I can just do that myself and no one can take that away so that's the greatest pleasure of Captain Jack Sparrow," Depp said in an earlier interview.

Depp has been in the news recently due to the ongoing defamation trial. The actor is suing his ex-wife, Amber Heard, for an op-ed she wrote in 2018 titled "I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture's wrath. That has to change" which was published in The Washington Post. Depp wasn't specifically mentioned in the article however, his lawyers say that it was obviously about him.

When Depp was testifying, he told the lawyer asking him a question about returning as his character if Disney paid him "$300 million dollars and a million alpacas" that he wouldn't return to the franchise, and confirmed he would not.

The trial is set to resume for its final week as closing statements are set to be heard on May 27. It can also be streamed online.
