Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides hits theaters today and since Johnny is starring in it you know it’s going to be good!

“It’s a total dream to work with him,” director Rob Marshall told MTV News. “He is a consummate artist in every way; so dedicated, so inventive, a real genius. On top of all that is this amazing man: generous, kind, a real throwback from another time.”

And producer Jerry Bruckheimer agreed.

“He’s a consummate pro,” he said. “He’s so creative. He always comes with fresh ideas. He’s a very generous individual.”

But the same goes for Penélope Cruz!

“You need someone like Penélope, who’s an Academy Award winner, to go up against Johnny Depp, because if they’re not as good as she is, you can see it right away,” Bruckheimer added. “You can’t spar with Johnny unless you’re brilliant.”
