Hollywood star Johnny Depp reveals he almost got fired from 2003’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” because of his portrayal of the lead character Jack Sparrow.

The 52-year-old “Black Mass” actor made the revelation while attending the AFI Festival in LA, reported Us magazine.

“They wanted to fire me. I fully expected to be fired, and I got a call from the upper echelon at Disney who were courageous enough to ask me, ‘What are you doing?’,” he said.

Amused, Depp recalled how producers of the now-blockbuster franchise hated how he appeared to slur his words and mumble on-screen.

“The questions came up, ‘Is (the performance) drunk?’. I really expected to be fired, but I wasn’t for some reason. They were actually gonna put subtitles under my character. They couldn’t understand Captain Jack,” Depp said.
