Depp hits sauna to perfect Captain Jack

Johnny Depp credits his local sauna in France with helping him perfect his oddball Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl character Captain Jack Sparrow.

The movie hunk famously based the movie pirate on Rolling Stones star Keith Richards, but he says he perfected Sparrow's mannerisms by spending time sweating away in the sauna.

He reveals: "I would go into the sauna for great lengths of time, which I don't recommend, by the way, and you start to get a little woozy after about 30 minutes. I don't think it's very good for you."
