London: Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp thrilled students at Oxford University by stopping by for a question and answer session.

The 48-year-old actor hosted a screening of his new movie `The Rum Diary` at the Oxford Union on November 5 and followed it up by answering students` queries about his late friend Hunter S Thompson, the author of the book on which the film is based, Daily Express reported.

Depp then interacted with students interested in journalism at a special reception.

The event became so popular, organisers held a ballot to determine who received an invitation.

Other famous speakers at the union include Michael Jackson, Winston Churchill and Mother Teresa.
