Johnny Depp has an unusual way of creating characters for his movies – he does his best thinking while sitting in a sauna.
The actor needs solitude to dream up personas for his roles, so he visits a spa to relax on his own.
Depp admits he has created some of his most famous movie characters, including Pirates of the Caribbean's Captain Jack Sparrow and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's Willy Wonka, while basking in a sauna.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "I couldn't come up with the things I need to come up with in a crowd or hanging out with a bunch of people. Solitude allows you moments of creativity and some of my characters were actually born under extreme circumstances in the heat of the sauna.
"I was by myself in the sauna, 200 degrees, sweating and cooking myself and that's where Captain Jack and Willy Wonka were born. Weird, but that's a good kind of solitude."
