Los Angeles: Actor Johnny Depp had to rely on a team of assistants to help him during `bathroom breaks` while shooting vampire movie "Dark Shadows" because his pointed, sharp nails made it difficult for him to urinate.

Depp was fitted with long, sharp fingernails as part of his costume, but the talons proved to be a real pain when he needed to attend nature`s call, reports contactmusic.com.

"Well it took some time (to get used to), certainly. They stayed on the whole day. There were a team of people who would assist me (in the bathroom)," he said.

The actor stars in director Tim Burton`s big screen adaptation of the supernatural TV series as Barnabus Collins, the cult character made famous in the 1960s by the late Jonathan Frid.
