Johnny Depp travels with his Jack Sparrow costume

London: Johnny Depp always travels with his Captain Jack Sparrow costume because he likes to visit sick children in hospital.

The 50-year-old actor said he likes giving surprises and making sick children happy in hospital with his character from the `Pirates of the Caribbean` franchise, reported Contactmusic.

"Sometimes you go to kiddie hospitals and things like that. I`ll just sneak in and go and surprise a bunch of kiddies through the different wards... It basically turns into a two-three hour improvisation and it`s really fun. So I travel with Captain Jack," he said.

However, Depp does not think he will be doing the same thing with the costume of his latest character, Tonto from the movie `The Lone Ranger` as he worries it would not get through customs.

"That bird going through customs is going to be weird, isn`t it? I`ll just put a handle on top of it and it will be a handbag," Depp added.
