London: Hollywood actor Johnny Depp saved Babybird frontman Stephen Jones from being mugging.

The Pirates of the Caribbean was recording with the 47-year-old singer in Los Angeles when Jones was approached by a robber outside the studio.

"This guy looked completely off his head. He had a broken bottle in his hand and he wanted some cash, but Johnny immediately stepped in,” the Daily Star quoted a friend as saying.

"He told the guy he needed to calm down. The mugger then looked at Johnny and said: ''I ain''t stealing from Captain Jack,'' and put the bottle down," the friend added.
